well, this one was disappointing.

none of the traits you are used to or may look forward to in a milk stout are here.

you can see right through it, you have to work to smell any chocolate or coffee or anything, it's absurdly thin - bordering on watery, there's no head no matter how you pour it.

it honestly looks like a glass of coca-cola.

as it warms you maybe can smell some cocoa, but again you have to work for it. that's about it for character of any kind.

it doesn't feel like a stout when you drink it and it only tastes like a stout if you're comparing it to a lager or something. actually even then it's hard to say it tastes like a stout. there is just very little taste here at all.

i don't normally want to come here and bash a beer and i'm trying hard not to bash this one but i would not buy this again and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Aroma is light roasted malts, a good hint of tartness and mild sweetness. The flavor is roasted malts, mild milk sweetness and a sourish/acidic finish.

Poured into chilled stemmed/elongated tulip glass with ale at about 45 deg F. Thin creamy 1/4 in. head supported by rich amber, chocolaty color beneath. Inviting aroma with subtle but distinct caramel notes. First wash over tongue very much thinner in mouthfeel than anticipated but not unpleasant, with little bitterness to me but no sweetness. Second and subsequent tastes reminding me much more of a lighter, crisper Czech Pilsner than a Stout but with toffee-ish aroma inside the glass—the light-beer feeling very disappointing given what I paid. Nevertheless, could be paired well with foods in all seasons given its lightness. Not terrible but would have to say on the poor side for a milk stout leaving plenty of room for improvement. Would consider buying again though to pair with richer meals (e.g., Could work really well with duck)

This pours clear dark dark mahogany with not juch head, but I slow pour. Oddly, it isn't very opaque.

Smells sweet and dark, maybe toffee.

Taste is a bit odd, malty and sweet but....

I can't get over the mouthfeel. It is like water. It's fizzy, but watery. None of that rich stuff I expect with a milk stout.

Overall - I'm not really happy with this one. Usually I'll drink pretty much anything and make the best of it, but, well, this is one I'd say just pass on.
