look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - dark brown bordering on black; thin brown head that has little retention

S - caramel, chocolate, roasted malts, faint coffee, faint lactose

T - roasted malts, coffee, lactose, faint caramel

M - smooth, well carbonated, medium bodied but a bit thin at times

This is a pretty solid beer. It's got good flavor and great drinkability. It's definitely worth a try.

12-oz bottle into angled glass mug

A - several fingers of tan head atop a black body with brown highlights; very nice trail of lace rings

S - rich coffee and chocolate with a pleasant lactic quality

T - coffee and chocolate, touch of smoke, milky and earthy, bittersweet finish; very good balance between the malty sweetness and the bitterness from the hops and the burnt malts

M - full-bodied, high carbonation, moderately astringent, thick and creamy

O - a very decent milk stout
