750ml bottle into a Cigar City snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Beer pours pitch black with a very thin dark mocha head with poor retention. Lacing is stringy, spotty and sparse with little cling. Thin legs. Average.

Nose is toasted almond and coconut, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, and lactose. Robust, aromatic, and deep with nice complexity.

Opens lactose, cocoa, toasted coconut and chocolate. Some roasted malt bitterness and tartness in the middle. Espresso too. More lactose sweetness and toasted almond in the end with a milky, sweet chocolate finish and a bittersweet chocolate and coconut aftertaste. I really like the coconut and lactose presence in this one but it could be a touch sweeter.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Oily, slick and silky in the mouth and smooth going down. Finishes messy with a lingering and sticky aftertaste. Solid.

Overall, a decent milk stout but for the price point, not one worth revisiting. A touch over-carbonated with a complex flavor profile that just seems to have something missing. Definitely worth trying but there are better beers in the style besides this.

Got this at Brown Derby in Springfield MO, bottled 4/13

Pours ebony with a thumb of caramel head. A bit of a viscious look to this, near zero head retention & only slightly more lacing

S: Coffee, cocoa & some coconut in the background, all fade after a while

T: Coffee, coconut husk, a touch of lactic sourness & cocoa up front. Lactic sourness, a touch of coconut & coffee as this warms. Finishes sour, with a touch of coffee, coconut & dryness

MF: Light/medium bodied, slight carbonation . Weird play between lactic sour, sweet & dryness fighting for balance

An interesting & fairly drinkable milk stout; drinks fairly despite the heft & complexity
