Served from a growler at RBWG2014, so it probably has a disadvantage compared to samples straight from a nitro tap.

Pours opaque and near black with an excellent head.

Flavor: lightly sweet, smokey and fruity.

Very smooth feel.

O: very good despite a relatively unimpressive flavor.

Had this in a becker pint glass.

When the beer got to the table, it displayed a solid and squat finger's width of khaki-ish cap. The body was more of an almond brown with lighter ruddy highlights.

Unexpected roasted coffee note on the nose with a bouquet of dark chocolate and earthy roast. No frills irish dry stout more than milk stout so far, but with a good punch of coffee.

The palate is engulfed with roasted characteristics: roasted coffee, roasted malt, slight roast nuttiness. Dark chocolate and more coffee also hit at mid-palate and into the finish. Also a nice earthiness blending with semi-sweet roast notes in the swallow, nice wave of flavors to this Confluence offering.

Milk Man has a decent medium heft, maybe more watery on the tongue than it needs to be. The drier body is absolutely appropriate for the style.

This is an easy drinking milk stout. The roasted notes do not take over completely thanks to the play of the chocolate malt and the lactose. I appreciated how coffee roast flavors also spice this offering up. I would definitely drink this one again.
