Dark brown in color with deep amber hues on the edges of the glass. Poured with a thick, dense, dark beige foam that slowly reduced to a thick cap that left sheets of sugary, sticky lacings on the glass. Grainy, earthy, dark roasted malt aromas with dark molasses, coffee and chocolate notes. Full bodied with a velvety smooth feel down the middle and rich, drying carbonation on the edges. Dark roasted malt and dar chocolate up front with bitter hops and black coffee flavors through the middle. Hop bitterness tapers toward the end followed by sweet chocolate. Finished dryly with an earthy, roasted malt bitterness. The only downside is this is a seasonal. It needs to be available year round.

This Milk Stout is the King of Milk Stouts. Thankfully, NCBC made it available in bottles today. Pours a deep brown-black with billowing head that slowly subsides with generous lacing. The taste is perfection with sweet dark chocolate, expresso and roasted malt bitters. As dark or darker and more opaque than any irish stout I have had. Feels and looks like a nitro brew, much more so than Left Hand which was my previous favorite. The hops are in perfect balance and only serve to enrich the complexity.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a deep brown nearly black colored brew with a one finger tan head. The head has a decent level of retention fading over time to leave a lighter level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of roasted malt, espresso and a load of smoke. Mixed with this are aromas of some caramel and milk chocolate with a bit of a bitter earthy aroma as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a roasted coffee and malt flavor sweetened by some lactose milk and vanilla sweetness. As the flavor advances further flavors of caramel come to the tongue., with the vanilla and mild flavors getting even stronger. A light cocoa flavor also comes to the tongue at this point making the flavor rather sweet. More toward the end however a more bitter burnt coffee, char and a smoky flavor come to the tongue. With some flavors of a more earthy hop also coming to the tongue toward the end, the flavor that is left on the tongue is one of a big smoky roasted and burnt bitter coffee.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thicker to just about average side with a carbonation level that is rather low. The lower carbonation is good for the roasted flavors of the brew, although it accentuates the bitter, smoky and char flavors a bit too much, making them almost overpowering.
Overall – This is an upfront sweeter brew that becomes one smoky and roasty beer; almost to the point where it is a bit too much for me. If you want something with quite a flavor swing from rather sweet to rather smoky and raosty then this may be for you, but when unexpected (for a milk stout, with the smokiness at least) it caught me a bit off guard.

This beer poured out as a black color with some red highlights. The head is a bit fizzy but leaves a decent lacing on the glass. The retention isn't too bad either. The smell of the beer gives off some nice roasted aromas with small hints of chocolate. The taste of the beer gives off some really nice sweet flavors of vanilla and chocolate, as well as some roasted malt in the finish with a minimal bitterness. The mouthfeel is sharp and creamy. The bubbles sting the tongue, while the malts and lactose give this a smooth feel I the finish. Overall I find this to be a pretty damn good brew.
Serving type: on-tap
