The beer pour a nice and creamy dark tan head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is an opaque dark brown with notes of black. The smell has a strong coffee smell with a slight milk chocolate smell as well. The smell also a slightly roasted smell to it as well. The taste is a little bit different from the smell. The beer taste has the same notes as the smell but in different strength. The coffee notes are a bit weaker and there are greater roasted notes that come out and there also is milk chocolate taste. The mouthfeel is very smooth to the point where it is almost creamy and biting carbonation. Overall, a great cream stout and one I enjoy having every year.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. You bought the milk stout... yes I did... but hey it's Alewerks.. and if they make Cafe Royale.. say no more.

This is easily one of the darkest milk stouts I've seen. Thick black walnut color out of the bottle matching to fill the body. A simple off creamy to foamy head, manages three finger tall and settles to a flat puck of two fingers with ease. A nice capped looking stout.

Bouquet on this is solid, just not amazing. Simple light roasted malts, hints of small chocolate and charing. Strangely not much sense of coffee, but a good milky bent that hints to style. It's actually a nice subtle and pleasant aroma. It's also not overly sweet.

Palate comes nicely. Slightly light and with a bit of prickly carbonation, but the mouthfeel doesn't distract the palate too much. Light hints of milk and hinting to bitter roast and chocolate angles. Kind of waffery and very light. Real easy drinking mouthfeel and slight milk but not creamy thickness which is alright.

It's a good milk stout in my realm, a style I am not usually a fan of. But it's not overly sweet, has a good waffery light cookie quality, and chocolate hints. Strangely though of all the things it should hint at, coffee isn't one of them. But I don't care, it drinks well either way.
