Bottle. Pours dark brown with a quickly diminishing light brown frothy head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of vanilla, hay and light malts. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter in a light body, oily to sticky mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a sticky sweet finish. Hides the alcohol moderately well.

Pours black out of bottle with tan head. Aroma is vanilla, malt. Taste follows nose. Mouthfeel tends towards thin with lively carbonation. I enjoyed this beer and would drink it again but I feel it’s more like a imperial stout then a milk stout.

Transfer from BA -
Poured from bottle into snifter.
Appearance - Pours a very deep brown, almost black. A head is basically nonexistnat and not a whole lot of lacing either.
Smell - Some chocolate and cocoa aroma with a very small amount of a sweet caramel like aroma. Overall for its style I would have expected a bit more.
Taste - Up front you are hit with a big sweet-chocolate (like chocolate milk) flavor. While paling in comparison to the cocoa, a little bit of roasted malt, coffee, and dried fruit flavors work their way toward the end. A very nice flavor profile.
Mouthfeel - It has a thinner body then would be expected, but not by too much. The carbonation was possibly a bit too high, but again not bad.
Overall - The taste of the brew makes of for some lacking in other catagories. A nice stout to try

On tap at my local hang out. Served in a 16 oz. shaker pint. Poured black with a thin beige ring on a head. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa and lactose. Milk chocolate flavor with enough bittering to keep the sweetness in check. Medium palate, not as full as I would have expected.
