Empyrean Brewing Company Fallen Angel Sweet Stout

The Empyrean Brewing Company is in Lincoln, Nebraska.

This 5.6% ABV beer pours deep black, with a massive boiling head that is thick, foamy, creamy and light brown in color.  The aroma is dark roasted malt, sweet, chocolate, and a spruce-like tanginess.  The taste is dark roasted malt, sweet and dark chocolate, and a touch of iced coffee.  I tend to like dry stouts much more than sweet stouts, but I have to say this is probably one of the best sweet, or milk (because the sweetness comes from added lactose), stouts I have ever tried.  It is relatively well balanced.
