I would call this a chocolate stout before I would a milk stout.. it's definitely tasty and easy drinking not overly sweet and not complex .. I would recommend this and will buy it again I've really enjoyed their offerings and look forward to finding more of their brews

Picked up a growler of this over the weekend. The color was a dark brown, not as thick or as dark as some other milk stouts I have seen. The flavor is sweet, definitely some cocoa taste...but not overly so for the genre in my opinion. Mouthfeel again was not as heavy as many milk stouts, but still smooth as you would hope. I really liked it.

On tap at Maduro's in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a shaker pint 11/29/2014.

A- Dark brown body, one finger foamy offwhite head with good retention time. No lacing. Average-looking. [3.5]

S- Roast, coffee, slight bit of sweet milk chocolate. Not much else. Not particularly complex, but there are at least no off flavours. [3.5]

F- Roasted malt, slight graham crackers, a little bit of milk chocolate. Not much lactose. Not complicated, but solid. [3.75]

M- Medium body, a bit higher carbed than I would expect. Smooth, a bit sticky. No booze. [3.75]

O- Decent milk stout, but lacking a bit in the milk department. It drinks like a generic stout for the most part. [3.5]

Pour is black with a good bit of mocha colored head. Nose has a heavy roasted malt, lots of berry sweetness and residual sugars, a fair bit of vanilla cream, and faint notes of milk chocolate. Taste has a lighter roast up front, milky vanilla cream, less sugars, a bit cleaner. Body is very creamy and soft, lower carb, a touch slick and thin.
