Poured from a growler from papago into my Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Pours black as the night. A mocha head froths but quickly dissipates, leaving just a thin ring.

Like Bailey's? Then you'll like this smell. Dark roasted coffee and sweet Irish cream. Also a hint of sourdough breadiness.

The taste follows through with the smell. Deep roasted malts with notes of coffee and Irish cream. It's like an Irish car bomb in my mouth!

The mouthfeel is the only downside to this beer for me. Almost no carbonation, and a much thinner mouthfeel than I want from a milk stout.

The drinkability of this beer is dangerous. I downed this pint in about five minutes, and I could probably finish off this growler if I had a little less self-restraint. My favorite milk stout, and my favorite from Papago by far.

Serving type: growler

Biz trip to Scottsdale gave me the chance to drop in the little strip mall joint for this glass of heaven. Reminded me of an adult version of the little drug store milkshake experience I remember as a kid. Not ready to host a kegger with this, but an experience I'll never forget. Worth the visit whenever you're in the area.

Had on tap at the Thirsty Lion Pub in Tempe AZ,
P: pours a creamy dark roast coffee color with a thin white head that leaves a good lacing

S: brown sugar, malt, coffee very sweet nose on this one

T: very chocolatey, some nice toasted brown sugar, and a smooth creamy finish.

MF: had it on nitro tap, went down cool and clean

OA. Not to bad, pretty sweet though so you could only prob have 2 in a session.

Serving type: nitro-tap
