look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

On-tap at Miller's Ale House, Watertown, MA

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head.
S: Light to moderate aromas of chocolate are present in the nose along with hints of cough syrup.
T: The taste follows the smell and has chocolatey flavors along with hints of cough syrup in the finish.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and a little thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer starts out OK, but the cough syrupy flavors in the finish are a little off putting.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: A deep coffee black with a lovely 1 inch creamy foam head.

S: Wow. A lot of layers here. Dark roast coffee, black chocolate, hint of sweet milk chocolate.

T: The balance of chocolate and coffee is spot on. A touch of sweetness is present and plays very well with the bittering hops. Finishes creamy.

M: Lighter bodied stout. Not too light though. Keeps the beer fluffy and works with the creaminess of this beer.

O: Delicious and well rounded take on a milk stout. a lot less sweet then many other American milk stouts which I enjoy.

From the 12 fl. oz. can with no noticeable date. Sampled on August 18, 2017.

The color of the pour is jet black and opaque. Small head that fades fast.

The aroma brings out a definite mocha or coffee grinds character with a decent roastiness but a low hop profile.

The body is medium but there is some acidity to it.

The taste is both sweet and roasty like a cup of black coffee. There is a feint sweetness there but this is coffee for sure. If you like mocha stouts you should be satisfied.

3.07/5  rDev -18.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Can has a big lip. The cans are overfilled, spitting beer when you open them. No date. Black with creamy beige head that laces. Smells of dark chocolate and roasted grains. Flavor is a decent shot of espresso that quickly fades to a simple, slightly watery finish. Disappointingly one-dimensional. Feel starts fine and then gets chalky. Decent.

Musical Equivalent: Sleep (the band).

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

No date on the can,

Pours a decent creamy thick darker colored 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice lacing, dark black color hint of brown light sneaking through.

Nose like a dry Irish stout, dark stout malts, a touch roasty and toasty, creamy and a touch fudgey like, biscuity thing, that clear Irish stout thing.

Taste brings more dry Irish stout, dried lactose, creamy though, with biscuity flavors, toasted brown malts, some roasty notes and alittle charred cocoa, a touch of a mocha java coffee thing, touch herbal bitterness. Finish is drier but a bit sticky and creamy dried lactose like, more roasty flavors lingering with dry Irish stout.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bod, a bit creamy, decent but a bit on the lighter side carb.

Overall not bad, I would def call it a dry Irish stout rather than American stout, dried lactose, roasted flavors, a little burnt like note, not bad.

On-tap 1/8/2017 at Natty Greeneā€™s Tavern in North Attleboro, MA, served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short light brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of coffee and chocolate. Then a hearty roasted malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, this is a solid stout beer to drink for a while, but there are better choices within the style.
