Pours deep chocolate brown with a light tan head that floats gently before fading and leaving a fine amount of thick foam sticking to the sides. Not much carbonation but I wouldn't expect that from a Milk Stout.
Fine dark chocolate, touches of bitter coffee and sweet heavy cream. Picking up just a faint hint of orange zest in the way deep backround. Nothing much to brag about here.
Semi bitter coffee, semi bitter chocolate, and not too sweet. Semi good tasting. The alcohol and a touch of sour dark fruit come thru a little bit. I'm not impressed, but it's not half bad either.
Medium thickness. Glides down your throat and hangs onto your tongue nicely. Leaves a nice creamy bitterness in the finish.
Glad I tried this, but it probably won't be anything I seek out again unless I'm having a Milk Stout tasting. I was hoping for more but overall very decent.

This is my first brew from Breckenridge, and I'm having it from a bottle.

Appearance: Jet black cannot see through it. It had only a 1/2 finger head with an aggressive pour.

Smell: It smells fresh and like a Hershey kiss.

Taste: I'm getting some coffee notes with a strong chocolate taste overall, only slightly bitter.

Mouth feel: It has a nice feel thick and satisfying.

Overall: It is a good beer and a great start for me from Breckenridge. I do believe this is my first milk stout also so cheers.
