3.58/5 rDev -9.6%
look: 1.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a deep dark brown with a nice big tan colored head of foam. Color is nice. Body is clean. Head is holding steady. I think lacing will tell the story here. Lacing is pretty nonexistent. Okay, got near the bottom of the bottle, and something very strange looking dropped in my glass. Not cool. Gonna drain pour. Can't see what it is -- so definitely not going to drink it. I only hope it was sediment.
S: Coffee aromas front-and-center. Smell is similar to Founders RIS -- only here I can't really tell if it's the coffee or roasted malts I'm smelling. Vanilla is holding steady over the dark chocolate. Not smelling any hops or anything like that, though. Not bad here.
T: Taste a little flat to be honest. Not tasting any quality malts. The coffee flavor comes and goes very quickly. I don't have a problem with that, but nothing really remains after that. It more or less taste like your average milk stout -- this vanilla is coming through now. We'll see how it continues to change and evolves as the brew warms. *Sweetness starting to comes through as beer warms. Tasting vanilla more, but that's not really pushing the score.
M: Felt a little flat at first. Maybe that's because it's not as creamy as I would have though. Medium body. Medium carbonation -- decently done. Not much chewiness. Honestly, pretty average feel for me.
O: Not exactly sure what I was expecting. When you're selling beer for $9 a bombers then you think it's going to be something special. And, this just isn't that. There is a little age of this -- not even a year, though. So, I expected the coffee flavor to be mild. What's left is pretty average for the most part.

A- Jet black stout. medium lacing with great retention.
S- Smells off for a milk stout. I am not getting any noticeable notes; just maybe some oak.
T- I am expecting a smooth, milky stout. This is not what I am getting. I am getting too much carbonation for me to examine this as a milk stout. I am getting a watered-down tobacco taste. Weird.
M- Terrible. The carbonation ruins this milk stout. Too much carbonation goes down the throat, and there is too much on the palate for me to distinguish any proper milk stout characteristics.
O- I was disappointed with this take on a milk stout. Pipeworks has let me down with the two beers that I have had from them.
