Had on-tap at BoatWorks in St. Clair Shores, Michigan for $5.25 a pint.
Appearance: One of the most gorgeous looking beers I have ever seen... seriously. Pitch black with two fingers of a tan head that lasts forever. The lacing goes sip-by-sip from the top to the bottom of the glass.
Smell: A little more bitter smelling than I'm accustomed to from a Milk stout. Dark chocolate and coffee are the dominant aromas, for sure. I don't pull much of anything else out. I suppose roasted malts as well, and some slight sweetness, but it doesn't smell like Milk stouts I've had in the past (not at all a bad thing).
Taste/feel: Like the smell, slightly bitter (especially on the front), with a smooth semi-sweetness on the finish. Not what I expected, but still very good. The ABV doesn't come through at all in any way, and this is just a very nice beer by Greenbush... one of their best. While I didn't think it was much of a Milk stout at first, the finish let me know why. Roasty bitterness and a good wallop of chocolate on the start, with a silky, semi-sweet finish. Never too bitter, never cloying, just a very well crafted Milk stout.
Serving type: on-tap

4.16/5 rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Had on tap at Bad Apple. Served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark black color with a tan head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin cap that leaves some sticky lace down the glass.
S: Notes of chocolate and light espresso. The nose is pretty roasty well. Dried cocoa.
T: The taste has an even more roasted malt presence. Dark chocolate with a light milk chocolate. Coffee grounds with some dark fruit notes, anise and light lactose sugar.
M: Medium to heavy bodied, silky and smooth. Medium carbonation level with dry roast finish.
O: Definitely one of the better milk stouts I've ever had. Super roasty and dry with complex flavors. Hopefully I'll come across this again in the near future.
Serving type: on-tap
