L: as to be expected from a milk stout, brown/black with a little light around the edges. Little to no head
S: muted smell of chocolate, some alcohol as it warms
T: coffee, roasted. I think the taste actually got worse as it warmed, as the cocoa flavor dissipated and the roasted coffee flavor got more prevalent
F: average mouthfeel, touch thin, getting drier as it warmed. Not my favorite for stouts
O: I started off thinking of this as a 4.0 type beer, but as it warmed it started to disappoint, making it more if a 3.5. I'll split the difference

Pretty good. Could be smoother. It looks great, but like many of their other beers the taste just isn't there. It isn't as smooth as I would expect from a milk stout.

Attractive dark golden brown brew with plenty of foam in the New Belgium snifter. Pleasantly sudsy in the mouth. Quite sweet and tangy at the same time. Hints of chestnut and orange marmalade. Warm roasted malt with a touch of vanilla. Bitter chocolate touch and bitter finish. Intersting brew though hard to drink much. From the 22 oz bottle purchased in Oak Harbor, Washington.

Appearance - Pours dark cola brown with a cocoa colored half finger head. Sub-par retention results in a mostly barren surface with a thin ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Mostly spotty lacing with good stick.

Smell - Aroma hits on notes of dark chocolate and fudge with light roast notes.

Taste - More bitter than the aroma indicates. Bittersweet chocolate before earth and grassy bitterness hits in the finish. Okay, but not my thing.

Mouthfeel - Full in body with moderate, bitey carbonation. Lightly sticky texture.

Overall - Decent, but nothing I'd care to buy again. A shame, since the aroma offers such promise.
