2.63/5 rDev -28.9%
600ml bottle into snifter. packaged april 17, 2014. consumed on may 21, 2014
a: pitch black with one and a half fingers of slightly off-white head. impressive
s: very smoky up front, almost like smelling salty smoked meat. no thanks. hints of coffee, chocolate and dark fruits
t: salty and smoky up front, which lingers for quite a while. slight chocolate and dark fruit notes emerge mid-to-late palate. the chocolate flavour becomes stronger as it warms up. finishes salty and dry with coffee, slight roasted malt and smoky flavours
m: medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation
o: oddly salty all throughout the tasting? even if these off-flavours were taken out, i don't think the beer would be that great to begin with. glad i tried this but i most likely won't have this ever again

600 ml bottle from LCBO for $4.85 CDN. Served well-chilled into glassware. Batch 3431 dated Dec 27, 2013.
Appearance - Opaque dark cola brown color with a nice 2 finger tan head, that unfortunately doesn't stick around long. A few bubbles are visible and there's some red hues in the beer, but it really is too dark to see much of anything.
Smell - Some coffee chocolate blend but also a good dose of roasted grains in there, more so than expect from a milk stout. Also a specific mineral characteristic in the aroma too especially while reasonably cold.
Taste - Roasted characteristics of some coffee but I'm not getting this as a milk stout as the chocolate sweetness and the richness that I've come to associate with milk stouts just isn't there. There is a thinness perhaps from the aforementioned mineral characteristics in the aroma that leak through into the taste. Does get better as it warms some, more coffee flavor and less mineral tastes.
Mouthfeel - Thin and watery without the desired sweetness and slickness of a milk stout. Medium-high carbonation, but very thin bodied.
Overall - I don't know if this was not a good bottle or what but it was pretty bland and just paled in comparison with the other milk stouts I've had. Definitely a lighter version of the style, I wouldn't repeat this again.

3.39/5 rDev -8.4%
Bottle from the LCBO for $5 or so
Appearance - Dark brown colour with a small size frothy of white head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is no lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and faint coffee. There is also a graininess and a touch of smoke.
Overall - More of just a regular stout than a milk stout feel wise. It has an okay taste but is pretty boring and unremarkable.

From the 650 ml bottle to a pint glass.
This beer pours a deep brown almost black with a fair two finger head that breaks quickly leaving little behind. The nose is mild with roast some chocolate and a bit of coffee. Taste is a bit of a lot down, I expected the typical milk/sweet stout taste and it didn't deliver. I got roasts and coffee with some cocoa in the taste, but it lacked punch. Mouth feel was thin and the carbonation was fine.
I love milk/sweet stouts and Beau's told me that this is what I should expect... But I don't feel that this is what this beer is. It is okay, nothing more.

3.5/5 rDev -5.4%
Bottle: Poured a black color ale with a large foamy head with medium retention and light lacing. Aroma of light lactose and dry roasted malt is pleasant enough. Taste is also a good mix between some lactose notes with some light dry roasted malt with subtle black chocolate notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing to write home about but still better than your average offering from Beau’s.

3.63/5 rDev -1.9%
A - Typical stout appearance. Nice and dark with a short foamy head.
S - Roasted barely, nuts, and coffee bean.
T - Nice combination of coffee bean with a touch of vanilla sweetness. The flavours are not too strong nor overly complex but still well balanced with a semi-dry finish.
M - Creamy and milk-like mouth feel. Not very heavy compared to other Stouts which makes this beer drinkable but takes away from some of its richness.
O - My first Milk Stout so wasn't sure what to expect but I did enjoy it. This brew could use a thicker body but I enjoyed the combination of flavours that did not go overboard with the sweetness.
