Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some heavy chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is more of the same but there is a lot of very sweet lactose notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Some other reviewer puts it best when he says it's "fairly dull." My palate might be shot from drinking a much fuller, tastier stout prior to this. Wynkoop hasn't made a bad beer, there's just a lot that fall into the 'better' category, especially among milk stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (3151) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Nitro Tap. Pours deep ruby black with a medium supper creamy brown head, lasts forever and laces well. Aroma is light roasty coffee. Flavor is medium sweet, notes of cocoa and coffee, roasty. Light bitterness growing to the finish. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Got a little acidic and, well, off as I drank more.

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate milk, Oreo cookie, caramel, roasted grain), with a light note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. A simple, average rendition. Nothing wrong with it but it’s fairly dull.

Beaver (1289) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2014
12 oz can. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet grainy lactic chocolate with a little roast and vinous fruit.

The flavor is sweet lactic acidic chocolate with some roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, an OK roasty acidic milk stout.
