look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- served in a big old snifter with creamy tan head and lots of swirly lace. Body is a deep chestnut brown, almost black.

S- roasted aroma is subdued until it warms significantly and I'm glad this bar was nice enough to have the oversized snifters. Roasted and chocolate, some coffee, stone and mineral with molasses and slight berry tartness. Hints of booze as well.

T- taste mirrors the aroma with less sweetness than expected and big roasted coffee flavor. Very earthy with mild hops and some leafiness. Nice dark chocolate with a hint of acidity.

MF- big bodied and sticky with light carbonation

D- pretty decent but seems kinda dry for the style.

Jet black, completely opaque, the head was stiff and bubbly.

Dry malty, crackery and slightly charred there's a certain weakness." 2X" should be more pronounced.

The taste is grassy and earthy. Charred malts with a dry Graham cracker crust, there's a hidden chocolatey taste but that natural charred grass wins out.

Overall I like it, very rough around the edge but smooth at the same time.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into one of my trusty Half Acre tulip glasses

A - Dark brown with a slight red tinge when held up to the light, very slight light brown head, mild lacing.

S - Get sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, maybe a hint of vanilla

T - Good crisp taste with threads of chocolate and vanilla, some roasted malts for sure, nice finish with a little kicks of hops.

M - Slight creaminess with a nice edge to it, very mild carbonation.

O - I was very pleasantly surprised, nicely balanced brew as some one else said it grows on you as you take another taste.

Pours a black some red highlights when held to the light. Only a one finger brown head even from an aggressive pour only light lace.

Aroma is sweet, definite lactose sweetness present. Nice chocolate notes and light coffee.

Taste is nice good lactose sweetness, chocolate notes with good coffee hints with light smoke hints. Good smooth sweetness with a finish that's mostly coffee with a light hop bite. Finding the flavor very enjoyable and smooth.

Mouthfeel is a big medium very smooth, nice.

Overall liking this one very enjoyable tasty sweet and smooth.

Very dark brown/black with a light brown head of a quarter to half an inch. Little strands of lace that slide.

Cocoa and milky malts in the nose. Medium roastiness. Apparent sweetness. Grains and light hops.

Rugged with malts. Roasty char, sweet milk, dark chocolate, hop bitterness with a flair of citrus, general earthiness. Undercurrent of fusel alcohol. Good stuff.

Medium body. Somewhat lighter carbonation. Feels good. A little alcohol noise carrying over.

Pretty damn solid milk stout. Growing on me each time I have one.
