tap. Black with small nitro head. Very smooth, accentuated by the nitro. Big chocolate malt. Quite good for the style.

Colour is clear, dark but not really black. Aroma has coffee, chockolate and creamy milk in it. Flavour has mild coffee notes, some hints of cocoa. Palate is watery, light carbonated body. Nothing too special: overall ok, but not the best milk stout.

Poured from a bottle vigorously into a bar pint glass per instruction. The pour is quite a beautiful sight to see and almost worth the price of admission, $2.29 per bottle. The beer pours black with an abundant creamy head that recedes but never retreats, finally settling in on a quarter inch of khaki foam. Light lacing. Aroma is coffee and chocolate and dark roasty malts. Creamy chocolate and black coffee reign supreme in the flavor. The beer ends with a pleasant sweet finish and a tiny bit of bitterness.

Beer has a subtle aroma but some roast and hops mixed together. The texture is awesome. Very rich and creamy. The taste is smooth and complex with lots of interesting tidbits for senses to pick up.

Nice and dark (a stout, duh), great smooth flavor, somewhere between and imperial stout and a regular stout. Nice roasted smell. A great steak beer. -March madness 2014

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was looking for an alternative stout to Guinness. My first impression was that the pour was very different. Taste I find better a bit sweeter and perhaps more complex. I knocked off six over the weekend, 3 per day. Not too heavy and certainly not light. Just right. Time to get a case of my new favorite Stout.

Pours black with a creamy tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma of roasty malt. Taste has lots of sweetness up front, chocolate malt character and bitterness with more roast. Medium body. Creamy.

Not big on stouts. More of an IPA and brown kindof guy but this one is very drinkable and smooth going down.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark brown, a lot of lacing.
Enticing coffee nose.
Full body, dense flavor, rich but never cloying, long palate, with a balanced, rich finish.
Bittersweet, great balance,
My favorite milk stout.
