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.

Sampled at the brewpub 3/26/11.

App - dark brown, clear with a tan head.
Aroma - lightly toasty with bready malt and some sweetness.
Flavor - thinnish dark malt with some coffee, and sweet. Maybe a touch of hops, and some sourness that is out of place.
Mouthfeel - thin with sourness and fizzy carbonation.
Overall - drinkable but not exciting. I think it could use more malt and more roast. The sourness in the flavor needs to go away.

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 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.
