On tap at Morse Block & Deli, Barre, Vermont.
Though this was poured into a mason jar, I get what's going on. Here's the rest of my thoughts.
The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some light stringy lace ran around the glass and slid off fairly slow.
The aroma had a superb blend of sweet milk chocolate tones rolling over a light vanilla bean note and then meshing with some dark cocoa powdery sort of substance. Light coffee tones underneath.
The flavor leaned milk chocolate sweet at first and then seemed to develop more of a balanced sort of appeal with the roasty notes coming for further depth. Nice mobile roasty to smooth sweet aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it as the roastiness wasn't distracting but aided in a well done texture - somewhat gripping yet refined in it's smoothness. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt as projected.
Overall, definitely one of the more balanced "milk/sweet stouts" that isn't overly sweet. Fans of the style may like this but do note it's not cloyingly sweet like many of the style.
