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.
