A smooth-drinking, late-winter wonder. We’ve crafted this English-styled stout using roasted malts and a healthy dose of lactose sugar to produce a creamy-rich beer with hints of roasted chocolate.

I went to the store looking for a solid stout to replenish my stout selection. Sometimes I just pick one, and hope for the best. For what it's worth I am expecting a lot, so keep that in mind.

It looks : almond/beige colored head, 2 fingers in height. Leaves generous jungles of lacing behind on the sides of the glass. Body is dark brown to black, maybe coffee colored. Held up to light brings a distant red glow.

It smells : coffee grounds, sliced almond, dark roast malts, a bit of a dirty smell. Hard to really pinpoint but at this time it seems this may be only a marginal stout.

It tastes : a bit on the light side, with a lean towards hoppiness. Coffee grounds, damp earth, milky oatmeal, and a bit of a roasty smoky aftertaste. The vague creamy milk character smooths it out.

Mouthfeel : as said, a bit on the light side, probably more medium bodied than anything. Buzzing carbonation. Ends rough, creamy and semi-dry.

Overall : wish I would have picked something else. But that's my own fault for expecting imperial quality out of a milk stout. For a milk stout it is easy drinking and sessionable, but don expect explosive flavors or drying alcohol on the palate.

A. Slightly aggressive poor looks exactly like Dr Pepper even down to the head, with was ½ inch thick and dissipates quickly to 1/8 inch, then gone with only a film around the rim of the glass with islands of bubbles.
S. Oats, sweet, a little like Dr Pepper and cola.
T. Coffee, sweet almost like a milk stout. Cannot taste the alcohol nor yeast.
M. Feels like flat Dr Pepper. I must really want a Dr Pepper right now.
O. I like it. This would be a good for beginner stout drinker due to it being watered down. Average buzz for 5.6% ABV.
