4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Very dark, nearly black. Love the cascading bubbles as the pint comes off the tap. Builds a majestically creamy white head at the top that sticks around forever. Some lacing, though nothing intense. Looks outstanding.
Smell: Some faint roastiness, some bitter smokiness, and some chocolate notes. Smells like a stout, not much more to say here.
Taste: Great balance between the roasty malt bitterness and a touch of chocolaty sweetness. This milk stout is not too sweet, probably because it does not have the addition of actual chocolate or other brewing adjuncts. This one has a right amount of sweetness to compliment, but not overpower, the roastiness, and makes this one drink somewhat like dessert coffee or dark chocolate mousse. Finishes sweet.
Mouthfeel: Creamy due to the nitro bubbles. Felt smooth as silk on the palate.
Overall: Exquisite smoothness from the nitro makes this balanced milk stout fantastically easy and pleasurable drinking. Would certainly buy again, especially when looking for a nice, easy-drinking stout. This beer is fantastic on-tap, and is a vast improvement over an already good bottled product.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a jet black, with a small tan head which quickly fades, leaving moderate lacing. Nose is dark malt,chocolate, and coffee.Taste follows the nose, with a hint of milk sugar sweetness. Delicious.

Pretty good. Very smooth and milky. Not fussy about being poured a bit too cold. It's a baby stout with a sweet milk finish. Would buy again.

12 fl. oz bottle at the starbucks at Dulles Airport for a lot of money. Nearly black in the glass. Sweet malty at the nose. Starts creamy with toasted malt. Low bitterness. Sorry, I expected more.

A great nitrogen beer. Pours a beautiful amber black with a super thick tan head. Smells of coffee and vanilla, bit of French vanilla. Taste is similar, extremely creamy, and very smooth. Had on tap at Spritzenhaus in NYC.

12 oz bottle that from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bottle reads ’Nitro’ and does not have the cow pic.
Plenty of lactose and a nice creamy nose and mouth feel. I liked it a lot.

Great bread like aroma! Creamy on the tongue, a bit coffee and roasty, dark chocolate sweet finish. Head is creamy white, thin when poured, but lasts the whole glass, very lacey. Nice to have a stout that’s American brewed and worthy of it. Glad I bought the whole six pack.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Jet black pour. Thin head. Get skim milk and like a yeasty, kind of bread smell on the nose which is quite interesting. Taste is big dark chocolate and licorice, light rostiness on the finish and perhaps a touch of coffee. Solid brew.
