In bottle .. aroma typical of a stout. Taste was quiet light bodied, with some chocolate notes along with malts and tobacco, and a dry finish. Overall, OK but I am not a big stout fan

A decent milk stout. A bit thin in the body. Sweet and acidic. Thin head and a pleasant lactic aroma.

BeerAndPonies (64) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
341 ml bottle from a six-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet, served in a Guinness Draught-labeled nonic pint glass, yet another thrift store discovery. Pours a rich, deep chestnut brown with a puffy, mocha-brown cap that leaves a few lace rings. The aroma is somewhat savory and most definitely toasty, while the flavor strikes a careful balance of milky sweetness and roasted savoriness, with a gentle current of cocoa throughout. Smooth, creamy drinking, a touch chewy, and the flavor diminishes easily and pleasantly with each sip. Of course, being a sweet stout, this wouldn’t put anyone’s tastebuds in a twist - it’s a style that’s so innately gentle, I found it a bit difficult to find descriptors other than "toasty, sweet, and creamy". Nonetheless, it’s a friendly new beer experience; a very relaxed and pleasant winter beverage.

11.5 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee, and some lactose. Decent.

Bottle under the N2 Nitrogenated Milk Stout moniker at 5% ABV. Black pour with a dense tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, burnt caramel, coffee and milk chocolate. Body is light-medium and has a soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more roasted malt, milk chocolate, cocoa, burnt caramel and light candy notes.
