Poured into GI pint
Pour: Black appearance with a slight finger (maybe) light tan colored head. This receded quickly to a small collar.
Smell: Lots of roast like a mild coffee, vanilla and an overall sweetness. Bitter chocolate and cocoa.
Taste: Coffee notes with a touch of vanilla noted at the front. Unsweetened bakers cocoa and bitter chocolate come through but it is also quite sweet. The coffee follows through to the end with a mild bitterness on the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium with moderate carbonation. This is a smooth feeling beer but a bit thin. It is an easy drinking stout and one that is not too heavy.
Overall: Admittedly milk stouts are not my favorite style but this one is appealing to me. I love Pipeworks IPA offerings and will try their other styles before I pass too much judgement. I would not seek this out again but one I am glad I did try.

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.
