Enjoyed from the 22 oz bottle in a Delirium snifter, this milk stout pours a deep brownish black with a quickly dissipating light tan head that leaves light spider webbed lacing. Nose of heavily roasted malts, chocolate, and black coffee. Flavors are up front a roasted stout lovers dream come true with deeply roasted malts, bitter coffee and dark chocolate mingling into a symposium of roasted goodness with a hair of sweet to the sides and rear and a lingering roasted malt aftertaste with a moderate sweetness. Very nice for a milk stout. Good solid carbonation helps keep this chewy brew quaffable. More sweetness from chocolate and milk sugars comes through with warmth. Excellent. Will be looking for Very Mad Cow soon.

Cheers!

Poured into my Dogfish Head IPA glass.
A - Pours a very dark brown with a nice head.
S - The aroma is coffee, chocolate and malt.
T - The taste pretty much follows the aroma. Well balanced, not complex, just a straight forward milk stout.
M - The mouth feel is smooth, medium feel with low carbonation.
O - A very solid beer that I would drink again, but not special enough for me to seek out.

A really good Milk Stout, that being said I'm still partial to Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout. This one is smooth and creamy with a nice chocolate finish, but it has a charred/roasted flavor up front that I could do without. Looking forward to trying Very Mad Cow in the future.
