From the growler via Jungle Jim's Eastgate and enjoyed in the ever loved snifter.
This FINE stout pours a rich blackish brown with some subtle cola highlights
and a dissipating head of off white foam that fades to a thin ring, thin wispy pool,
and showcases some light lacing. Nose of heavy sweet dark chocolate, cream, light
char notes, and a hint of coffee. Flavors follow the nose perfectly for the style with
cream and chocolate touched with subtle char that presents itself nicely on the back
with a subtle light hint of coffee. Excellent mouth feel; full body, low carbonation,
and a bitter sweet malt driven finish that is lightly sticky.

Overall this is a milk stout lovers ale for certain. Sure to please and easy to
drink.

Cheers

It poured a beautiful dark brown leaving a spectacular spider-web spotty foamy lacing gracing the sides of the pint glass. A semi half-inch white head appeared and lasted for about a half minute before dieing into the body. The smell had the chocolate up front, almost somewhat of a chocolate cake, there’s a slight bready/cakey smell in there. The taste had the chocolate and a bit of of a smokey coffee taste backing that up. The palate was about a medium to almost heavy with nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, I like this one. I would come back to this, very good.

The aromas include chocolate, spice, fruit, mild roast and a hint of tartness. It pours deep dark brown with ruby highlights with slowly rising bubbled. A 2.5" foam collar with a fine bead persists on top and provides good lace. Moderately sweet creamy chocolate fills the mouth. A moderately bitter finish lingers, providing balance and keeping the beer from being cloying. While there is just a hint of coffee, there are no harsh roast or burnt flavors. 2XStout has a medium full body and and medium carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer with a nice blend of flavors.

Eh.... Had sample from tap at their new location in Pittsburgh. Granted we had already had the Mokah and Choklat prior to this sample. Nothing excited me about this one. Maybe if I had this one by itself.

A- black with a light tan head and half finger head. quite opaque as well.

S- roasted malt with sweet milk/cream smell.

F- light roasted malt with sweet cream/milk flavor.

M- creamy and medium bodied stout that is sweet in the mouth and goes down smooth.

O- a good milk stout. The malt isnt overbearing as in some stouts but the sweetness complements it very well.

Poured a very dark brown with 2 finger tan milkshake head. Moderate lacing. Malty flavor with a slight hop bitterness on the end with not much lactose flavor, which I liked. Moderate body and carbonation. Overall not bad.
