A dark, rich, aromatic, and malty specialty. Rottie fans tend to be pushy and territorial, so under no circumstances should you steal their bar stool.

I had this beer on tap at the Gaslight Inn in downtown Glendale, AZ. It's a local beer out of Tempe. The sign on the tap stated 4.6 ABV however Everything else says 5.7%. It was "okay." Not as smooth as you would expect a milk stout to be. A little more astringent and crisp. I didn't pour it, the barkeeper did, so I got very little head on it which disappeared almost immediately. It was served possibly a little colder than I expected also, (for a stout). The nose is subtle; slight lactose, a little fruity, maybe a touch of sweetness, but very subdued. The mouth feel from start to finish was a little more crisp than it seemed like it should have been, (more like a pilsner). A slight bitterness on the finish. I would describe it as leaning more toward light and crisp than thick and creamy. Nothing exceptional about the flavors. Not very complex. You can taste the grain with a bit of sweetness in the background. It's crisp start to finish, although it's not overly carbonated. You get the taste of lactose with some very mild pleasant hints of chocolate and possibly coffee. The bitterness is slight but seemed out of balance to me. Not a bad beer, but there are enough beers out there that I probably won't go out of my way to drink another one of these.

Fantastic Beer. A mild hit of carbonation and hops in the beginning, then a burst of milk stout pleasant flavor in the middle and a very pleasant after taste aftertaste that almost reminds me of the smell of a home cooked roast for some reason. .

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and slight lactose aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit, cocoa, char, and slight cookie dough flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing all that memorable with the aromas or flavors.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours a lovely black with a reddish hue to it. It's actually a bit devilish in that you think you see that lovely red and then you don't. Fat creamy head of chocolate colored foam that falls fine and leaves a good layer of bubbles and lace to look at as you drink. Nose is a bit of bread. Rich dark bread with a baked grain sweetness on it. Sweet chocolate and a bit of morning coffee. There's a dark fruit in there too. Drinks like a charm. It has an expansive mouthfeel but with the lower abv it drinks relatively light. The roast is a bit dry and a touch bitter. it has a light faint bit of dark fruit on the palate but not as strong as it is on the nose. Same with the chocolate. On the nose it's a touch sweet and in the drink it's more like cocoa powder which is not in itself sweet. This one has a taste like dark bread with the crusts. A baked sweetness that is not sugary. A bit of carbonation takes it gently over the palate and it finishes dry and that is where the lactose sweetness and the chocolate combine for a touch of milky sweetness. A brisk dry finish with a bit of mild morning coffee and only the dryness and the crusty bread lingers. Excellent!
