Milk Milk Milk. Specifically, Milk, chocolate, caramel. My notes says I was eating with some Buffalo wings. Makes sense. Have not had many milk stouts/sweet stouts, so I don;t have much to compare to.

A fantastic milk stout all around, though lacking a strong nose. Jet black with a creamy mocha head - full bodied, soft carbonation - coffee!, dark chocolate and vanilla sweetness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bomber poured into a stemmed snifter. A combination of vanilla extract, milk chocolate, and cookie dough bring to mind chocolate chip cookies on the nose. A deeper smell brings forth a the lactose sugar, a little bit of nuttiness (pecans?), and some berry scents (blackberry and raspberry come to mind). There’s also some distinct molasses or brown sugar aromas that stand aside from the cookie combination previously noted. It has a soapy / watery-jello tan head which recedes down after not too long leaving a couple of puffs atop a deep, dark, opaque brown. It doesn’t really leave any lacing to speak of. Sweet malt is the primary taste - both roasted and creamy malts - but it’s mellow and pleasant. Initially, when it’s still a bit cool, roasted nut and woody notes hit the tongue first, but as it warms up, those flavors fade and it’s replaced with a smooth, creamy caramel and milk chocolate (kinda like a Rolo), and finishes with a pinch of cinnamon spice, maybe some molasses, and some brown sugar. The aftertaste left behind is primarily a milk chocolate mouth coat with some roasted pecan hints which sticks around for awhile.

I am not sure if i understand the mild stout appeal. It was thinner than i expected, and the bubbles on top looked a little weird. Kind of like milk in fact. Too sweet for my taste. Very dairy-y if that can even be said. Might work as a stout float situation with ice cream, but other than that i dont have much use for this. Pains me to say that about my favorite brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a black color with a rather thin head. Aroma has a fair bit of chocolate and some toffee. Taste is quite heavy on the sweet lactose, reminiscent of a coffee creamer. Body is quite medium-light. Maybe I’m just biased against the style but there just isn’t anything that unique or interesting about this beer. Good for the style though.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle poured in imperial pint glass. Pours dark black with a nice tan head that fades quickly leaving lots of lacing. Huge, amazingly delicious aroma of coffee, milk chocolate and malts. Taste does not disappoint, with fresh roasted coffee beans, milk chocolate, sweet cream, malts, black liquorice, caramel, and dark fruit. The sugars and lactose blend extremely well with neither overwhelming. Finishes with a strong coffee and milk chocolate aftertaste that lingers for awhile. Palate is thick and creamy, as you would expect. Carbonation is just slightly too much for my tastes, as it stings and numbs the tongue a bit. Overall this is an absolutely top notch milk stout! An absolute must for fans of this style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured very dark with little head and virtually no lacing. Very little carbonation and hit fairly thin moutfhfeel for a stout. Pretty sweet but overall unintersting to me. With so many good things on tap at 3F, I moved on quickly.
