Bottle pours near black with nice tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted grains and mocha. Favors includes toasted malts, wood, coffee, baker’s chocolate, and molasses. Very smooth with very nice dry hop finish that lingers.

Bottle. Pours thick black with tan head. Smells of chocolate, lactose, roasted malts, sugar and a bit of tin. Taste had the typical ST sweetness with lactose, dark roasted malt, no booze, caramel. Quite nice and for a "sweet" stout I like the amp up which seems natural for ST.

355mL thanks to DedicatedToFun. Pours deep, clear marron with with thick, dense, almost nitro looking dark coffee head. Excellent sheety, nitro like lace. Nose is slightly poopy, lactose, milk chocolate, sweetened espresso. Taste is tangy, metallic up front, a little rust character, lactic. Thicker Irish dry stout character with milk stout blend. Ends sweet with some iron metallic. Thicker, lactic palate. Big mocha character. Better than expected.

Bottle pour to snifter....coffee and milk chocolate essence fills glass with faint dusty earthen hops note. Taste akin to oreos dipped in ovaltine with underlying alcohol kept at bay by lactic carbonate body. Goes down very nice, with just the right amount of heat n sweet.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From my first time tasting this beer: Pours extremely dark and thick (light doesn’t pass) with low carbonation. Has a small tan head that quickly dissipates. Smells of barley malt, alcohol and hops, no sweetness on the nose just beer. Quite good, thick and malty with a good hop presence as well. The sweetness of the milk stout seems to mix with the alcohol and they kind of mask each other making it just taste like a regular stout. The descent hop presence hits you before it finishes with a a strong bitter coffee chocolate malt taste. This is a good average stout, being that the 2xipa and Left hand milk stout are two of my favorites, I thought I’d like this more. Not blown away but very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a small cream head. Smells like hops, sweet cream, and coffee. I taste coffee, cookies and cream, with some hoppy bitterness at the end. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. This is sweet, but not overly sweet or sugary. Alcohol gives a nice warming sensation. Overall, this surprised me with it’s balance. A good milk stout in my opinion.

Tap at Hudson Street Stackhouse. Pours black with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is cookie, chocolate and coffee malt, dates and prunes with light earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, heavy chocolate with a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

very, very smooth. This beer is almost creamy. Slides down effortlessly. This brew warms up a cold windy day quite nicely. Thumbs up.
