A little confused here

This is class as a Milk Stout which I had one last night from Duck-Rabbit but appearance is alot different. This one is pouring like the porter I just had from Duck-Rabbit. I am going to have to take notice on this and see if there is similar across the industry standard.

Head is darker, light molasses tan, body is dark no see through

Not much lacing going on here

The taste is more mellow than the Duck, so better balance I would say with the increase of alcohol too.

As representation of the style, I don't know yet because the comparison is alot different.

The Take: I would get this again I have to for more fine tuning, Good Choice

a: very dark almost purply stout, with a caramel-brown head.

s: rich and with unexpected layers of... something. Really complex. Almost chocolatey.

t: I was hoping to be able to taste a little bit of licorice or something different. As it stands it just tastes like a really excellent stout. Little bit tart on the finish.

m: solid and chewy.

o: slightly disappointed in the lack of a really distinct flavour, but this is going up on the list of all-around favourite stouts.
