[Insert obligatory Big Labowski reference here]
A: Well we're certainly starting off a bit differently here...Color is chestnut brown. Clear. Forms a smallish head that doesn't bother sticking around for long. Poor retention. No lacing. Appears flat.
S: Aroma is fairly pleasant. Moderately sweetness. Vanilla, caramel, milk chocolate and toffee. Turns alcoholic as it warms.
T: Taste is different as well. Again, there is a moderate sweetness. Somewhat nutty, with caramel-candy-like notes. Chocolate, vanilla, and some very light (almost nonexistent) coffee notes. Gets a bit more alcoholic as it warms.
M: Full bodied and incredibly smooth. Lower carbonation levels - practically flat. Very little bitterness.
O: Well if the bottle didn't explicitly say it, I'd say this beer doesn't know what it's trying to be. I have a hard time comprehending it as a milk stout and even harder time trying to comprehend it as anything approaching a White Russian. It's not that it's a bad beer, but I just don't feel like they've replicated, mimicked, or given tribute to the White Russian and I can say I wasn't overly impressed.
