Nitro tap (9/22/12), Waterfront in Pittsburgh. I'm not sure if this should be considered the same milk stout or a new one, but I'm reviewing it as the same beer.

Pours jet black with a yellowish head.

The aroma is of cocoa, coffee, and mildly bitter nuts.

The flavor is cocoa, milky sweetness, coffee, a slightly smokey element, and some oak.

Medium body with a subtle, smooth carbonation.

I tried several brews on my visit to Rock Bottom and this was my favorite, real nice lighter-strength stout. Great flavors. Would love to have this again.

Sampled at the brewery in Denver, CO. Clear, nearly opaque black with mahogany accents forming a creamy tan head of fine bubbles with excellent retention and ok lacing. Aroma is of espresso, cocoa, and vanilla. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel with a clean finish. Taste begins with deeply roasted grains, cocoa, followed by coffee, and oddly enough, sweet corn. There is an earthy hoppiness in the finish with a hint of alcohol. Somewhat dry for a milk stout.

on tap at the rock bottom brewpub in denver. from notes taken 7/9/11. served in a pint glass.

a - came to the table with a thick, dense, tan head that lasts forever. the beer itself is an opaque dark brown that leaves large swaths of lacing in the glass.

s - cocoa nibs, dark roast coffee.

t - lighter in flavor than expected. some lactose mixed with roasted and chocolate malts. slight hop bitterness for balance. gets better as it warms.

m - thick, creamy, and incredibly smooth.

o - very enjoyable, even in the middle of summer. not as sweet as some examples of the style, which is good. recommended.
