3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a somewhat light black with thin tan-colored head. The aroma is strange of malt and honey with hints of nutmeg. Flavor is definitely a creamy stout, almost as if it were watered down with milk. Hints of coffee at the end of each sip. Body is creamy with a fizzy carbonation.

Bottle-Pours black with no noticeable head. The aroma was roasted malts and coffee with a background of milk. Ok, I know it would be better defined as lactose. The initial taste is milk and chocolate followed by coffee with a slightly hoppy finish. The mouth feel was creamy and carbonated. Petty’s

Subtle aroma of toffee/coffee. Full flavored, a bit thin in the milk stout style. OK I guess.
