From the can so a little tinny. Dark black with tan head that disappears quickly. Chocolate and coffee. Smooth but not as smooth as some Ive had lately.

Can. Pours deep dark brown with some brown head that fades to a ring in the glass. Nose is creamy chocolates, toasted malts, caramels, more toasty and biscuity malts. Flavor is toasted malts, sweet sticky lactose and some chocolates. Pretty solid beer.

Can from drakes party center. Pours black with a shitload of khaki lacing. Coates the glass with it too. I get a bit of the cocoa on the nose. There’s some lactose as well. I don’t know if it quite suggests a milkshake but it is a solid milk stout.

16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger foamy tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that eventually disappears. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, light coffee, cream, herbal, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good dark/roasted malt balance; and decent strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, light floral and roasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a bit. Good balance of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid milk stout. Good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; and very smooth to drink. An enjoyable offering.

This beer pours from the can a dark smooth black. Almost looks thin. A foamy vanilla mocha colored head tops it off. A sugary toasted almond aroma. Flavors really revolve around the sugary sweetness from the milky vanilla ice cream notes mixed in with chocolate syrup. Very light overall. With its lack in overall flavors it makes up in other points. The milk chocolate flavors really leave a nice chewy layer on the mouth feel. Also surprisingly enough it feels somewhat thick. Which really pulls anything together that this had going for it. In the end a light stout that you can really drink quick... if that’s what you’re into.

On draft at Alexandria’s in Findlay. Pours a stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some sweet chocolate, some vanilla, an caramel with hints of lactose. Flavor starts off with sweet chocolate then moves to vanilla then to some lactose and maybe some dark chocolate. Light in body and lingering sweetness on the finish.
