A- Black body with a head of light brown foam head. The head is about two fingers of foam, with great retention. There is not much lacing at all with this beer.
S- Probably the best smelling beer I have ever tried. There's a pleasant smell of vanilla, with some light baker's chocolate and some sweetness that I cannot define, probably the lactose. Smells like a chocolate milkshake.
T- Can taste the chocolate malt that gives some light initial bitterness, as well as some light chocolate that mellows out the bitterness from the malt. There are also some hops that make the finish bitter, but not too bitter as the sweet lactose works with the hops.
M- Sadly, very light and thin to me. For this style I enjoy more thickness. Very sticky and moderate carbonation.
O- One of my top chocolate stouts. Just extremely tasty and great a desert beer. They definitely hit the mark with the aroma, but I wish it was a little more robust in flavor. If more breweries were making milk stouts like this, I feel like they would be more popular.
