Dude, this is good stuff. So happy they put it in cans to enjoy at home. They nailed it. Their hefe and pale ale are amazing as well. Cool beer folk with a great spot to visit.

Enjoyed from a growler from Jungle Jim's in a DFH snifter. This delicious milk stout pours a rich blackish brown with a solid brownish tan head of tight beaded bubbles that dissipates to a thin layer, thick ring, and light lacing. Nose of chocolate, sweet lactose sugars, and a touch of black coffee. Flavors are exceedingly well balanced with a chocolate milk shake flavor up front and on the sides, moderate black bitter coffee notes to the rear, and an ever so mild hop note smoothing this awesome brew out on all sides. Moderately slick mouth feel and moderate carbonation makes this one of the finest stouts I have had this year. This could win awards. Truly awesome.

First brew from North High Brewing we have tried, and if the rest of their selection is as good as this we will make the journey to Columbus VERY soon.

Cheers!

12 ounce can, no canning date that I could find. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like chocolate, lactose, roasted malt and a bit of coffee. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma. It's a mostly sweet chocolately brew with a bit of coffee and burnt/charred malt bitterness to it. Nice and tasty too! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good overall milk/sweet stout. This is the first North High brew I've tried, but after drinking this one I'll have to make a point to try some of their other ones now! $9.99 a 6-pack.

Can dated 15282 (October 9, 2015). Pokal.

Appearance: Pours an opaque black with some brown glints at the edge when held to the light. Three fingers tan head. No visible carbonation (it's opaque). Lacing is modest. Retention is fair; a tan ring around the edge with some islands of suds in the middle.

Smell: Smells milky, but like spoiled milk or unscented soap. Lightly roasty.

Taste: Arrives with a lightly sweet roasted barley, and turns to that slightly sour milk taste, somewhat fruity, some vanilla, before a roast and hop bittering take over, for a brief, fairly clean finish.

Mouthfeel: Lighter side of midweight. A little light on the carbonation. Fairly clean finish, with lingering sweetness.

Overall: Man, I really want to like this beer because they are local and I love their Pale Ale, but it's just not doing it for me. I suppose I have been spoiled by Left Hand, but the smell and the finish on this are just not quite right for me. Perhaps it is my mood as I am reviewing this. This is an okay milk stout perhaps a little less sweet than some in the style.
