look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Creamiest head I've ever seen. Looks epic.
S: Smells creamy and roasty.
T: One of the best tasting beers I've ever had. A great balance between sweet, roasty, smooth. The milk flavor really comes through and works with the other more characteristic stout like flavors.
M: Sits with the perfect amount of bubbles and has a nice sweet linger. The body of this is really light through which left me wanting.

Overall another great beer from founders. Get it for sure!

Serving type: on-tap

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.

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.

An excellent example of a true "milk stout" enjoyed at the bar attached to the brewery. This beer is beautiful to look at, almost black with an amazingly creamy coffee-coloured head and lacing down the entire glass.

Very nice aroma of roasted dark chocolate malts and milky sugars. The flavour has the sweetness of the caramelized malts with intense coffee notes. The finish ends surprisingly dry, although the milky sweetness lingers for some time prior to the true ending.

Milk stouts aren't my favourite genre, but believe this to be a very good example of the style.

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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap
