Big, two finger dark brown head atop an inviting black brew. Head retention is excellent.

Roasty nose: burnt toast, black coffee, bitter chocolate. Milk and cream; a hint of vanilla. Toffee and a bit of molasses.

Slightly sharper on the palate. Bitter and roasty, especially on the back half, with tons of roasted barley leading to a slightly ashy, charred representation of toast, caramel, and coffee. A bit of sour, red grape up front.

Smooth and creamy mouthfeel; medium bodied, pretty much right on for an 8% ABV brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Look: Opaque black with some cola highlights. The head is espresso creama colored.
Smell: Rich dark chocolate, burnt toast edges, cold brewed coffee, milk chocolate sweetness, a vaporous alcohol, a hint of cream, dried figs, and a mild bitterness.
Taste: Dark chocolate and cherry Dr Pepper on the attack. The attack has this strange aqueous quality that reinforces the Dr Pepper flavor. This aqueous note open the gate for a clean body of milk chocolate, over creamed cold brewed coffee, and cherry notes. The finish holds all the roast with a mildly bitter burnt toast note, a light alcohol, and some hoppy pine bitterness.
Feel: Medium bodied with that strange watery middle. Mild bitterness. Medium sweetness. Medium alcohol. Prickly carbonation. The finish is off dry and sticky.

Overall: A milk stout I really didn’t enjoy. That watery soda body really threw me off. I would like some more body to this. Also, more balance to the sweetness and the roast would help too. Not a fan of this one.

no bottling date, but I'm assuming relatively fresh as it's released in August. Reviewed 8/22/18

Look- Pours pitch black with a 2 finger tan head that recedes fairly slowly leaving a 1/2 finger that sticks around

Aroma- slightly bitter dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, a hint of smoke and a little dark fruit

Taste- follows the nose closely with bitter dark roast coffee and semi-sweet milk chocolate to start, followed by that mild hint of smoke and something vaguely fruity, like sweet cherries or prunes. Really substantial flavor without being overwhelming, and with great balance between sweet and bitter

Feel- medium-bodied with medium carbonation

Overall- phenomenal milk stout w/intense coffee and chocolate notes from the malts. It's hard to believe that coffee and/or chocolate weren't added to this (at least to my knowledge, they weren't).

6/28/18: 1 pint, 6 oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods 12/3/17 ($12.99) poured into very large beer stein in one pour. Slight tan head and lacing, good carbonation, pitch black beer. Dark chocolate and roasted malt aroma, balanced not too sweet. Strong roasted malt taste, offset by chocolate, very nice, not too sweet which I loved. Thin creamy texture, carbonation holds well, Overall excellent beer, glad I popped open today.

Pours very dark with a half inch dark brown head. As this beer warms it seems to get better taste wise but it smells boozy no matter what. Not a bad sweet stout, but not defining.
