We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” kind of moments when you try it!

What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!

A: The beer is very close to being near black in color; slight traces of red are only evident near the edges of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a half finger high dense tan head that took a long time to fade away and left a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of lactose in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of lactose and also has some notes of milk chocolate and hints of sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, smooth and a quite creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and quite sessionable.

Don't get a chance to try too many new milk stouts. This is a pretty good one, I'll say. Smooth delivery and feel with a flavor profile that fits the bill for the style. Not the most aggressive characteristics on the flavor, but all the lactic and stout tones are there. A real easy drinker.

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

Appearance: dark brown in color with 1 inch head, clear, moderate-high carbonation

Smell: big oats and coffee

Taste: oats, black coffee, and dark chocolate

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy body, moderate carbonation, sweet with slight roasty bitterness

Drinkability: A solid, clean, oatmeal/sweet stout. The sweetness comes through but is never overly seet. Glad I picked up a four pack. I could have several of these.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some hints of very dark brown when held up to the light (though there is very light penetration by the light). The beer has a two finger tall dark mocha head that slowly reduces and condenses to a quarter finger tall layer covering the entire surface of the beer evenly. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of dark roasted and charred malts. There is a light amount of milk chocolate sweetness and just a touch of coffee.

T: The flavor of this beer starts out with a moderate amount of dark roasted and charred malts with very little bitterness. After that, there is a flavor of chocolate milk with some light notes of freshly brewed coffee.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy but somehow a little thin/watery.

O: This beer seems like it would be amazing in nitro-cans or on nitro-tap (just the right body/mouthfeel that the nitro would be a pleasant edition). Very easy to drink and very enjoyable - I might even consider this one a sessionable stout which I do not find a lot of beers which qualify.

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

Appearance: Almost opaque black with very dark brown hue around the edges. Light brown head, big bubbles of carbonation.

Aroma: Sweet cream then roasty malt. A touch of molasses.

Taste: Cream throughout and then roasty in the aftertaste. Tastes how plain coffee creamer smells, though definitely not overly sweet. Roasted caramel and a hint of coffee at the end.

Mouthfeel: Really creamy and a little on the lighter bodied side. Would love to get this on nitro-tap. Above average drinkability.

Final Thoughts: This is a good stout. Definitely one to try! A good representation of the style.
