4/5 rDev -1.2%
A - pours a medium dark. has a one finger mocha head.
S - definite smooth creamy richness from the milkyness. hint of hopp as well. great roasted bitter chocolate. not a lot of sweetness
T - initially has some well pronounced chocolate/roasted coffee notes. the milk and chocolate pairing work well. not overly sweet. hoppiness comes out slightly in the aftertaste. also has organic notes to the aftertaste.
M - not too boozy, drinks well. the sweetness doesn't impede the drinkability
O - the overall balance and nature of this beer makes it pleasantly drinkable for a stout.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
A: Poured a dark black brown color with hints of orange when held to the light. One finger of head with a few solitary bits of lacing clinging to the glass.
S: I could smell the milk chocolate immediately, followed by sweet caramel malts and roasted malts. There was a bit of coffee in there too. It didn't smell too sweet for a milk stout, just sweet enough.
T: Tasted the milk chocolate right off the bat. True flavor on the chocolate too (not artificial tasting.) It was followed by a needed bitterness of mild coffee, more like a cappuccino than a mug of straight coffee. The caramel malts are mixed in there too. Just a bit of bitter hops on the back. Just like it smelled, not too sweet at all.
M: Good carbonation. It had a medium mouthfeel, but I was a bit disappointed because I thought that it would be creamier than it was. The finish was short and left a bit of burnt chocolate taste in my mouth. It wasn't unpleasant, but again, not what I was expecting.
O: Overall I enjoyed this milk stout. It isn't my favorite, but it is easy to drink. Most milk stouts can over do it on the sweetness and richness of the beer. This one is easier to drink with food because of the lightness of it.

Poured from the bomber into a Chimay goblet.
The beer pours a very dark brown with just over a half finger of creamy off white head. The head doesn't stick around particularly well. There is a stronger than normal bitterness in the taste, but there is enough sweetness to back it up. I'm getting a coffee note in the taste, but it also shows up quite nicely in the smell. As I drink the beer, the bitterness is a bit overwhelming. The mouthfeel is creamy with very smooth carbonation.
