A - A hard pour produces a thick 4 finger khaki colored head on top of a viscous black body. Sticky lace clings the glass

S - Coffee, chocolate, char notes. Nothing major or over the top.

T - Coffee and bitter chocolate, underlying lactose sweetness keeps bitterness from getting out of hand, char taste and hop bite in the finish.

M - Thick, creamy and low on carbonation. Coating feeling on the palate.

O - An easy drinking stout. Sweetness gives way to bitter in the end. Char flavor dominates and hop bitterness makes an unexpected and oddly placed appearance. No sign of the 7.5% ABV. Overall a good milk stout.

Pours and inky black with some head and decent retention. Nose is mostly chocolate and sweet dark roast. Taste follows with chocolate and sweet dark roast. Mouthfeel is great, really smooth. Overall a fine beer. I haven't had much experience with milk stouts, but I thought it was very nice.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle. Pours a dark chocolate colour. Huge notes of chocolate on the nose. Tastes of dark fruits, smoke and bitter chocolate. Ample sweetness, but dry on the finish thanks to a strong dose of hops. Full-bodied for sipping and savouring.
