3.61/5 rDev +1.1%
Pour: Extremely dark, almost black with hints of brown near the edges. A whole lot of cream-colored head that fades slowly, leaving a bit of lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate malts are very strong up front, as well as a ton of coffee. There’s a nuttiness in the background, too, and a touch of bitterness, which actually pairs itself with the coffee.
Taste: The coffee becomes the frontrunner in the flavor, but not all the chocolate is lost. There is a nice sweetness to this from the unfermentable sugar, and a nice bit of balancing bitterness at the end. The beer has a flavor reminiscent of dark chocolate covered espresso beans.
Overall: This is, honestly, way better than I expected. I’ve had Pork Slap Pale Ale, and was thoroughly underwhelmed, but this stout is pretty excellent. It’s not the best milk stout in the world, but it's near the top of my budget beer list.

12 oz. can poured into a craft pint.
A- Near black in color, a very deep brown. Some light comes through. Tan head retains some, but not by the time I'm done.
S- Combo of roasted malts and burnt sugar. A burnt sweetness comes out.
T- Subtle roasted flavor blanketed by sweetness. A really great mix of the two.
M- Very smooth in feel, like expected, with a good creaminess. Sweet, but slightly dry in the finish.
O- I was impressed with this one. It's a good balance between the roast and sweetness. Not much depth, but this is, simply, a milk stout.
