3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355mL thanks to tastybeer! Much better label artwork on this one. Pours clear deep red. Doesnít really want to produce a sizeable head. Bubbles remain. Nose is muted, milk chocolate, heavy cream, pretty nice. Taste is mega earth, soil, lemon, tart. Thin, tart. Perhaps some sort of bitter chocolate and cream in there. Not my favorite, but drinkable. After warming up, next pour gives it a better head with better retention. Taste gets a little richer, lemon tartness goes away and so does the earth/soil harshness. Palate gets pretty spot on. Nice! Let it warm up.

3.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very solid milk stout, not too bitter but not too sweet, a goldilocks stout. Pretty pour with a jet black body and a creamy, mocha head that laces the side of the glass. No aroma to speak of but a really nice taste. The creamy, milky chocolate hits you first but settles nicely with a roasty finish. Pretty much rates like a dark chocolate candy bar. Love to buy local and this beer is solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap pours opaque black with a small tan head. Not much carbonation. Creamy vanilla taste. Heavy body that makes for a heavy beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at End of the Line, Indy. Almost totally black pour, with some faint carbonation and a heavy-ass looking head. Nose of straight chocolate malts and lacto additions, which I reckon is as it should be. Body was heavy and creamy, just shy of too much so. But I canít complain about something thatís done well to style. Slight notes of bitter hops to balance in the taste. Solid.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a head of frothy medium sized bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a semi-opaque dark ruby red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of roasted malt and brown malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

This is a very interesting beer. I've never had a milk stout, so I'm not familiar with how they should taste, but this is enjoyable. It's very smooth with dark chocolate and coffee flavors. In some ways it's a bit too sweet at times, especially in the finish.

On tap. Poured beautifully on nitrogen. Black with a nice, thick head. Flavor is a bit restrained. I didnít detect anything but some moderate roastiness and some lacto sweetness. Very smooth finish. Easy drinking. Not bad.
