On draft at SmartMouth. Pours a medium stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some sweet chocolate, some Hershey bar, some earth, some baker’s chocolate, and some sweetness. Flavor is similar with roast, some Hershey bar, some baker’s chocolate, and some acrid coffee. Light to medium in body and a nice milk stout overall.

Cowcatcher is a solid milk stout. The aroma is typical of stout, though light on the hop. The appearance is dark, though the head was a little thin. The taste is perfectly balanced, malty and creamy and very rich. A sessionable beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a growler purchased at the brewery. Pours brown with a khaki head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and faint floral hops. Great flavor of chocolate, light smoke, weak coffee, and just a touch of vanilla. Mouth feel is perfect with just a hint of creaminess and sweetness as you would expect from a milk stout. Nearly perfect for the style and a very nice beer.

Nutty pecan aroma with chocolate accents. Black, medium tan head, good lacing. Pecan and almond flavor, lightly and appropriately sweet. Finishes more bitter with some toast and char notes. Drinks a little hot. Great example of the style without being milquetoast, pun absolutely intended.
