Smell of coffee beans and vanilla but very little milk taste. it reminded me more of a cappunchino type stout and bitter at the end alot of coffee smell taste like lagunitas coffee stount over would maybe have again a bit dissapointed because all of revolutions beer has been good but maybe the very mad cow will be better

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours dark brown with a small khaki head that quickly fizzes away leaving basically no lacing or retention. The aromas are full of chocolate and black coffee. Cocoa malts are there. The flavors have lots of milk chocolate notes. There's also some dark chocolate giving it a subtle bitterness. The coffee notes are alive as well. It's not an overly sweet example of the style. There's even a very subtle kiss of spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with active carbonation. Possibly slightly over carbonated, but it's still smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Easy to drink.

This is a solid stout, but seems middle of the road. It's a nice traditional stout, but seems forgettable for the most part. It's not bad at all. Maybe I just had high expectations for whatever reason.
