This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and no lacing.

This smells like roasted malt and roasted coffee, lactose, dark chocolate, and vanilla.

This isn't quite as bold or complex as the Brazil version of this beer, but it's still quite tasty. There's a lot of the traditional type of coffee flavors- chocolate and roast. There's also a bit of molasses and vanilla, too. The lactose just makes this super creamy and delicious.

This is thick, creamy, and super rich, with a decent level of drinkability.

Other Half is just killing it with their stout game lately. I'm not entirely sure what happened, but whatever they changed, they need to keep doing that.

it seems almost unfair that this is as good as it is, like, these guys already are approaching a monopoly in the best hazy ipa types, and now this?! come on! feeling super lucky to have been able to make it to the little other half event trve put on this weekend and get to drink these, this one was among the many highlights. its huge for one, shiny near black dark brown with a ton of viscosity and an mocha colored head that looks like it came from a nitro tap, long legs on the edges of the glass and a beautiful visual richness. aroma is heavy coffee, a darker roast with a lot of minerals and earthiness to it, as well as an obvious dark chocolate note that would collectively make this pretty bitter if it werent for the lactose and vanilla, which dont necessarily sweeten it up too much or make it desserty, but definitely serve to balance the heaviest elements of the coffee and the dark grain in the smell and the taste. its so creamy and decadent, its amazing! milks chocolate now with the lactose, all the complexity and vanilla character of a whiskey barrel without the oak, and none of the booziness i expected in something this big. amazing depth here, brown sugar and molasses with the roast, and a coffee profile thats there from start to finish, earthy and warming and very high end. this is absurdly good, as good as the style gets really, nothing to add, take away, or change. they absolutely have this one dialed. one of the best other half beers i have ever had! what a treat!

Acquired from brewery on release day, poured vigorously into snifter.

L: foam was lacking, dissipated quickly, nicely blended.
S: Tart, fruity, sour, bitter
T: Rich and smooth coffee mixed nicely with chocolate, and whipped cream. burnt caramel as it warms.
F: Very smooth and easily drinkable. Earthy, syrupy as it warms.
O: The best Stout I've had from OH yet. very nicely blended, lacking of any negative feel as I usually get from OH stouts. Very enjoyable and even better as it warms.
