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.

No sour porters for me. I'm moving on to a milk stout from Tempe. Comes in a 22 ounce bottle. On to the beer:

A half-inch of head rests on top this obsidian/red hued beer. Creamy whisps of lace stick to a few spots around the glass. The aroma of chocolate malt balls makes much of the aroma, and there's a "plain" sweetness which I can't put my finger on. Overall, the aroma is not very strong, but it is interesting.

What I taste is decent. Unsweetened chocolate is the dominate note of this milk stout. A kiss of raisins offers a distraction from the chocolate. Just a dash of bittering hops at the end cuts through the overall sweet nature of the beer. While it's not a beer I feel in love with, it did help me forget the agony of Dark Knight Porter.

I bought this because I have only tried maybe 4 different breweries Milk Stouts and I wanted to try more. I was amazed with this one...the best I have had so far.

Poured into a Scottish "Noser" Glencairn Whiskey Glass.

Appearance- Dark, silky, with just a thin film. Plenty of lace.

Smell- Vanilla, with a hint of roasted coffee aroma. A slight fruity smell I cant identify and a very definite bread like smell, almost like I was walking into a bakery after hours.

Feel- Smooth at first, with just a little carbonation, light tingly sensation on the tongue and roof of mouth, presumably from foam settling in mouth. The sip ends on a very smooth, and easy note, the texture is just as smooth as it should be.

Taste- This is brew is definitely a milk stout, and although it is not that strong it IS full flavored and surprisingly flavorful. It has a very appealing vanilla-like taste to it that seems to blend in perfectly with the smooth, creamy and rich taste of roasted bean. There is also a very faint chocolate note that I swear I taste in every sip. The alcohol, "feel" I guess is the appropriate term since I cant really taste it, fades out quite quickly at the end leaving me with a satisfied feeling after tasting as much as I could on each sip.

All in all, I am definitely buying this beer again whenever I see it, thoroughly impressed here. I will take this any day over my go to Milk Stouts "Left Hand". This has become <so far> my new favorite Milk Stout.

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.

I am not sure why people are slamming this beer. Dark Mahogany-mocha head that dissipates and leaves a light covering over surface. Minimal lacing. Chocolate coffee, malts, nutty- perhaps even hazelnut taste. Goes down easy, gets better as it warms, and is relatively light on the palette for a stout. Not bad at all- I like the flavour mixture.

Poured from a bomber into a goblet.

A: Opaque black color showing dark brown light transmittance at the edges, with a nearly continuous residue of mocha-tinted bubbles. Scant lacing remains on the glass.

S: Dark fruit is slightly spirituous while lesser chocolate defines the roasted qualities that are present. It lends a slightly sour quality in the nose.

T: Begins off-dry, with roasted malt that is almost immediately unctuous, but restrained. Flavors are nutty and with carbonic acidity into the middle. Mild unctuous roast continues, becoming fairly dry by the finish where bitterness is understated and a trace of baking spices are detected.

M: Medium viscosity, smooth but a little loose on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: This is an average stout, unremarkable as either a milk or export type. The smell is not particularly convincing, while the flavors seems both overly timid and slightly disjunct. It is far from being undrinkable, but it does not inspire one to hurry out for other products from this brewery.
