12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours deep black in color with a one-finger foamy off-white head that has short retention and leaves nothing behind

S- roasted malt, char, milk sugars, chocolate & earthy coffee

T- starts rather dull, with flavors not popping until the mid-palate, giving notes of sweet lactose and chocolate. The finish is semi-dry with a hint of coffee and lingers of milky chocolate

M- medium-light body with low carbonation leads to an almost flat mouthfeel that turns just a bit foamy into the finish

O- pretty good milk stout but the mouthfeel is almost flat

L - yep, that's black. Coursely bubbled head that quickly and loudly dissipates. It is black tho.

S - lactose sweetness and a roasty coffee brown flavor. Burnt popcorn.

T - iced latte sweetness. Coffee with milk and sugar. Can't shake this buttered burnt popcorn taste.

F - standard fare. Medium body with medium carbonation.

O - they should call this "Lancaster Burnt Popcorn". I may be a bit roasty toasty right now, but that's all I can taste.

Really good beer. Not overly sweet but a full flavor. It's super dark and beautiful.

Appearance: Pours a motor oil black.

Overall: The aroma contains hints of chocolate, milk and toffee. The taste has coffee, bittersweet chocolate, smoked flavor, with a carbonated and bitter aftertaste. Overall extremely satisfying and an outstanding beer. This is a great stout!
