Pours black like oil. Bourbon, vanilla, and cocoa on the nose, all follow onto the palate. Had both on tap and via bottle. Having it on nitro made it even smoother and creamier than it already is.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Saucer in Addison. Smells of luscious bourbon and roasty malts.
Lactose takes a back seat to everything else going on here, and that's a shame. Toffee, bourbon, roasted BBQ malts, kisses the back if my throat with bourbon and malt sweetness. Pretty nice, but compromises its milk stout roots for the addition of bourbon -- and that's not cool. Take a page from Cognac Moloko's book and become even more awesome!
