12po can poured into a pint glass.

A: Dark Fudgey brown color, almost black. Fine-bubbled tan head holds at a quarter inch cap and leaves thin sheets of lacing in its wake.

S: Milk chocolate, malted milk balls, softened whiffs of roasted barley and iced coffee. Very slightly woody. Brownies.

T: Woody roast and black coffee up front. Iced coffee with cream and two sugars. Unsweetened cocoa. Sharp citrusy hop interjection for a brief moment. Perhaps a bit grassy too. Yeasty toward the back. Roasted barley. Mildly acidic. Bakers chocolate and Woody roast on the long finish.

M: Medium bodied. Very smooth and creamy thanks to the lactose. Carbonation is a bit sharp and biting.

O: Not half bad. Not as smoothed over and approachable as some milk stouts, but that's not a bad thing. The roasted malt character is far more predominant in taste than the nose suggested.

This was a a wonderful surprise. Got it in a growler at the local beverage center in Marcy.
It looks good, smell is a mix of malty sweetness, hint of hop bite in the background.
Overall it meets my "if I only had this beer this rest of my life, not a bad deal" test for a great product.
I would rate this as a stout that is tough to improve on. Has the deep flavor of a smooth stout, with just the right touch of a hop tang.
