Bottle. Poured medium black with a thin tan head and good lacing. Creamy chocolate aroma with a slight vanilla undertone. Great balance of chocolate and toasted malt flavors made it not too sweet from the lactose and had a great, slightly creamy finish.

Had on Nitro tap. Good chocolate but slightly dull towards the end of the taste. Picks up well with food.

Bottle (12oz $2): Nearly blank with small tan head. Smells and tastes little a cross between bitter sweet chocolate and milk chocolate with a hint of salt. Body is medium plus. Good milk replacement 😃

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Pours black with a ring of tan head. Nose is nutty dark malt, rye bread, and a bit of milk sugar. Chocolate and a hint of coffee grounds. Smells a little nutty for a milk stout. Taste is the same--roasty and nutty with some bitter burnt wood and ash notes. Some sweet milkiness, but overall I was surprised at the dry roastiness on this one. Slick and medium bodied with medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark mahogany brown. Aroma is roasted malts and grass hops. Initial flavor of sweet/sour milk is almost a turn off, but this beer is complex in that you need to taste the entire profile to really appreciate it. The milky flavor gives way to a grassy hop finish. I almost pick up a note of bubblegum in between the sweet/sour milkiness and the grassy hop finish. That’s wasn’t the intent. I would love to try this brew from a nitro tap as opposed to a bottle This one is interesting and requires more than one to rate.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up a black brew with a head that quickly died to absolutely nothing. Looks flat now. Smells of roasted and chocolate malts makes the lack of any head seem not so bad. Taste did not disappoint either and was the same as the aroma. Silky smooth to drink but only marginal carbonation feel. So it tastes great, needs improvement on body, but the price is not too far out there and the 7.5% make it worth drinking.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: the beer is a very black opaque color that has so many bubbles it almost fades to the head color, which is a very creamy light tan color, looks great
Aroma: milk, chocolate, kind of faint
Taste: lactose, strong chocolate and bitterness, alcohol
Palate: awesome thick nitro creaminess, bitter aftertaste, soft carbonation
Overall: this is off a nitro draft and the mouthfeel has the best texture, pretty bitter and not as sweet as I was expecting

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours opaque red tinged dark brown, tan head. Faint roasty aroma. Flavor a bit of a surprise - pleasant one. The dark roasted grain is dominant, but there is also roasted spice and a hints of vanilla licorice. Really nice palate, effervescent, slightly creamy, a gently bitter/ashy finish. Overall surprised by the restraint of sweet and creamy that I expected from a milk stout, instead finding much more balance.

Dark brown, beige head with good retention. Hoppy, sweet and lightly roasted aroma. Fully body, soft carbonation, quite sweet. Sticky on the tongue. Lingering average bitterness.
