Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell reminds me of a chocolate milkshake. Taste is coffee, I didn't see that coming, some chocolate, moderate bitterness at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Word of Caution, my wife broke out in hives after having about 4 oz. of this from a bottle. Probably just a freak thing, but I know she will never have one again.

A: opaque; very dark brown in color; 1 finger light brown head that receded to a very thin cap; OK lacing;

S: deeply roasted grains; a hint of bittersweet chocolate and even less coffee in the background;

T: roasted grains with lightly bitter coffee with milk; the moderate bitterness stays through the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: good, but not memorable;

"Batch #217 16." Poured into stout glass. It pours nearly black, with dark cola hues when held to the light, and one finger of creamy, khaki-colored head and lacing with nice retention. It smells of roasted malt, cream, dark chocolate and strong coffee. The taste juxtaposes sweet cream with burnt coffee grounds. There is also a subtle taste of baker's chocolate. It finishes surprisingly bitter. This stout is moderately bodied and fairly creamy, lightly carbonated, and the ABV of 6% gives it some substance. Overall, it is a decent milk stout but too bitter at the finish for my taste. It would be interesting to try it on nitro. Given the choice, I'd prefer Left Hand's or one of the English-brewed Milk Stouts.
