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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with mahagony hues offering a creamy chocolatey head. Aromas of roasted malts, milk chocolate, milk-coffee, mocha and hints of toasted white bread develop. Very smooth and light faint livelyness wi a medium coffee like body. Sweet and roasted bitterness intertwine and are well balanced. Medium lasting finish with chocolate coffee notes.

Not very exciting. Middle of the road. Pretty damn plain. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Very smooth, but I prefer the Nitro version of this Stout. Can’t go wrong with this Milk Stout.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Rich, dark, with an opaque chocolate mahogany hue. Medium tan head that holds well. Deep roasted malts aroma and flavors with coffee and hints of vanilla. Very sweet profile, actually a bit heavy for my preference. Wish there was a little more dynamic play with hops, just really sweet.

Pitch black, low beige thick head. Aroma espresso, milk chocolate, raisins. Taste rounded with overal sweet bladness which really takes away the edge and leaves everything...sweet. Hops onlz in total finish and neutral. Mild but good enough.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Pours a murky opaque dark brown. Smells the toasted notes with a sharp smell of alcohol.
Tastes sweet and chocolaty with just a little bit of sharpness. A complex taste, Its also has a wonderful and smooth mouth feel.
I think it still can be a bit much, and after a pint I cant say I feel like another one. Its far too sweet however its a decent drink to have now and again.
