A-Pours a dark brown. Thin, watery body is evident by the pour and how it rests in the glass. A condensed, creamy head with speckles of lacing.

S-Very dull. A bit off, too. Like powdered Ovaltine. Not much roast; not much of anything besides that suspicious powdery chocolate note.

T-The flavor is light but still manages to be unappealing. Powdery chocolate and lactose with a slight metallic twang.

M-Light but creamy. Body is too thin. Bubbles are mild.

O/D-Did not enjoy this one.

16 oz can served in a snifter.

Pours is a deep dark brown, opaque in the glass, with a tan head that has limited size and retention but leaves decent lacing.

Aroma: sweet malts and chocolate

Flavor: lightly and appropriately sweet, with a richer and darker malt base than I would have guessed from the smell alone. Finishes with a hint of spices, then leaves an aftertaste with traces of smoke and coffee. True to style but not quite as robust as I'd like.

Feel: medium-full body; medium-light carbonation.

O: a satisfying milk stout in a can.

16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger foamy tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that eventually disappears. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, light coffee, cream, herbal, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good dark/roasted malt balance; and decent strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, light floral and roasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a bit. Good balance of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid milk stout. Good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; and very smooth to drink. An enjoyable offering.

Michigan Brewers Guild sample. Pours black with no head whatsoever. Smells of chocolate, lactose, slight bitter roasted grain, but mostly highlighting light chocolate. Taste is light chocolate flavor, but mouthfeel seems a bit thin with the lactose seemingly lacking here. Slight bitterness on the finish that would have been nice had this had some body or sweetness to go along with the chocolate malts. Only okay.
