Very tasty beer. Nice amount of carbonation. Full flavor. Delicious maltiness. Drinks like a porter.

Reviewed 2/9/12

L: Well, it looks like a stout: jet black with a tan head.

S: Smells like cocoa powder. It’s roasty, but undercut by a certain sweetness.

T: The flavor follows the aroma: roasty with a very perceptible sweetness throughout. This beer is rich and some subdued dark malts pull through in the finish, but this is definitely offset by the sweetness. Also less lingering bitterness than one would expect from a stout of this strength. Alcohol is somewhat perceptible, and I’m also picking up hints of oak.

F: Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. The lactose really shows its true colors with the mouthfeel. It is creamy and lush and leaves a gooey feeling in your mouth (in a good way!) A bit of warming alcohol in the post-sip.

Overall: Pretty solid non-imperial stout. It has a delightfully thick mouthfeel that I can only attribute to the lactose. Since I tend to prefer my stouts on the strong side, this one works quite well. The sweetness really makes this style unique but it is even more prevalent in this beer than other milk stouts I’ve had. Wouldn’t mind having this one again.

Pours with little head. Drinks fairly nice and smooth. As other reviews have noted, not a lot of chocolate flavor. Taste good, just not great. Borderline Fair/Good. I'm no expert though, give it a chance and post your thoughts.

Dark beer, no head to speak of, no lacing ... just dark.

NIce aroma, mostly cocoa, with some roastiness.

Flavor is different from the aroma ... not so much chocolate, more overall bitterness. It's kind of tasty, but not quite right to me.

It's a decent stout, but not a great one.
