look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Growler Fill at FMcD's. I think these guys are pretty new to the Nashville area.

A: Pours oily and black. Thin brown bubbles filter up to an inch thick dark brown head. Looks frothy, thick, and full.

S: Coffee rinds, milk chocolate, smoke, and bready grains.

T: Milk chocolate sweetness up front with lingering flavors of bitter espresso, licorice, and burnt toast. Some dry, grainy qualities (like an irish dry stout possibly)? Finishes thin and dry.

M: Lightbodied, slick and oily, little carbonation. Flows smoothly and leaves a lingering coating on your tongue.

O: Overall a good example of the style. Solid flavoring and body. Will have no problem finishing off this growler and looking forward to trying more from Huntsville.

Serving type: growler

3.96/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours like black coffee with a light tan head that fizzles out quickly leaving a pencil thin ring. The ring does leave a few spots of lacing.

S: Bold roasted coffee, warm aroma of roasted grains, just a little chocolate. No noticeable hops or yeast aromas.

T: Smooth coffee, pleasant roasted grains with a hint of smoke on the finish. Nice malty sweetness with no real bitterness or hop notes.

M: A little thin for a stout but a nice smooth feel. Understated carbonation fits in well and a mild lingering of the aromatic flavors.

O: I enjoyed this milk stout with its interesting roasted notes and heavy coffee aroma. This is very drinkable and is one of my favorite Straight to Ale beers. I'm glad it's one of their year round offerings

On tap at Babalus Tacos, Jackson, MS,

A: Very dark brown with a tan one finger head that dissipates slowly. Frothy lacing.

S: Not a strong smell, but I'm picking up traces of coffee, chocolate, cocoa and vanilla.

T: Follows nose with a pleasant milky smoothness. Semi-sweet. A slightly harsh finish that doesn't offend. Very sessionable.

M: Medium with medium carbonation. A nice fizziness on the tongue.

O: Not bad, not great. A decent milk stout, but I've had better. Would go well with a brownie or chocolate chip cookie.

Serving type: on-tap

3.26/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out black with a super thick light brown head. It didn't explode out of the can like some of these reviews, but a gentle pour into a tulip still creates a ton of head.

Smell isn't very impressive, little bit of toasted coffee and malt. Not bad, but mediocre at best.

Taste is hard to read. No chocolate notes, not much of a burnt coffee flavor. It's so carbonated, I didn't even get the lactose flavor.

Way over carbonated. The carbonation really ruined this beer for me.

Overall, I'm a big chocolate/oatmeal stout fan, and this just wasn't anything I expected from a milk stout.

4.09/5  rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours dark brown to black, requiring a lot of light to appear ruby red, though still opaque, with a mocha head.

S: Milk chocolate, dark chocolate and medium roast coffee in the nose.

T: Sweet milk chocolate, malt, roasted malt and medium and dark roast coffee.

M: Medium full bodied and creamy, but not super smooth.

O: Smells good, tastes good, body could be better, but still recommended if you like stouts.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Can bought in Alabama last spring. One can had inflated and blown; this one is just inflated. Over-chilled to decrease foaming, but no problem. Poured into English Bass pint mug.

A: It's a stout, so, about black; nice, tight, 1" head.

S: Roast malts as appropriate, chocolate and black patent, I reckon. No hop aroma.

T: Rich and full roast malt palate; enough hop bitterness to balance nicely; no noticeable hop flavor, right for style.

M: Full, but not thick or syrupy, again, correct for style.

O: I like this beer and wish it were available in the north country.
