3.38/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours jet black with a decent sized coffee colored head. No retention and just slight lacing down the glass.

Smells like milk chocolate with some light roast coffee. Can tell there is lactose in this.

More milk chocolate on the palate. Finishes grainy with some coffee notes. While sweet up front, the finish is a bit drier and bitter.

Fairly smooth mouthfeel although it feels a bit thin at times. Finish is slightly astringent.

Not the best beer I've had from Pipeworks. Would have liked to see a more complex flavor profile.

3.03/5  rDev -23.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

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.
