Served on tap at Founders, review is from notes.

Appearance was dark brown with a lot of creamy looking head.

Smell dominated by dark roasted malts and creamy chocolate.

Taste is really interesting, coffee and chocolate flavors up front followed by the creamy sweetness of the milk sugar. Sweet but never cloying.

Mouthfeel is great, with the nitro-tap helping keep the milk sugars sweetness in check.

Overall a really nice milk stout - I probably like Founders' oatmeal stout more, but this was a nice find during the summer.

CO2 growler

A - Pours black with two fingers of tan head. Head doesn't last long but leaves a wall of lacing behind.

S - Chocolate malt, some cream, and a bit of coffee. Straightforward but quite nice.

T - Initial taste is creamy coffee and chocolate. Roastes malts come in later, leading to a semi-dry finish with a slight bitterness. Quite tasty.

M - Light creamy mouthfeel with a semi-roasty bitterness.

O - Enjoyable easy drinking stout with an interesting enough flavor profile to make me want to have another. Another great example of Founders doing "small" stouts just as well as they do the big ones.

A: Dark with a nice head. Lacing stayed on glass entire session.
S: Weak, but not bad.
T: Slight bite at first then smoothes out real nice
M: Creamy, easy to drink

Had on tap at the Founders Brewery. If I was able to drink more than 2 beers I'd drink another, however moving on to try another.

Had this at the brewery the other day.

Pours farily dark. It's a nitro pour which looks like a sand storm! Smells really nice with chocolate and roasted malt. Taste of sweet and bitter coffee notes. Has a nice sweetness that makes it ultra-drinkable. This is a great milk stout that they should bottle. It went down way too easy. A great session stout I hope they keep around from time to time.

3.89/5  rDev -1.5%

Appearance: solid creamy head at about a half a finger. Pitch black color in the glass. Rich creamy lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: pretty subdued overall. Milk chocolate and sweet dairy greet the nose. Light to medium bodied roasted malt present. Cream and pleasantly light.

Taste: tons of flavor packed and into this light stout. A chocolate, light coffee, and chewy toffee body bring the drinker in. The body And finish is solid malt and slightly burnt oak. Easy going, a great summer stout.

Mouth feel: medium bodied with a great balance.

Overall: one of the better milk stouts I have had. So smooth going down but has a ton of awesome complexity.
