12oz bottle, no apparent freshness date
A - black body with a frothy tan head that holds excellent retention and leaves thick lacing on the glass as it fades
S - roasted barley, dark chocolate, cream
T - nice sweetness paired with roasty and chocolaty notes; cream, earthy hops in there as well
M - medium body, smooth, creamy, ample carbonation
O - really nice, straight-forward milk stout here. No complaints from me.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Grabbed the last bottle of this stuff from the local beer store; a new offering to me from the local Flesk Brewing Company, out of Lombard, Illinois. Expectations are decent; I've enjoyed what these guys have put out so far.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a dark chocolate brown colored body; opaque in the glass with four big billowy fingers of scraggly fluffy tan head. Leaves behind fat root beer float like lacing. A very nice looking beer. 4.5

S - The aroma is comprised of milk chocolate, cream, lactose, vanilla, and a somewhat dominant earthy yeast presence. Not what I would call roasty, and maybe not quite what some people would expect from a milk stout aroma, but I find it very pleasant indeed. 4

T - The taste amps up the roastiness quite a bit - lots of bitter roasty coffee beans, chocolate, vanilla, lactose, cream. Again, a bit of distinct prevalent earthy yeast presence, but it fits in nicely with the build of the beer. Very well harmonized. 4

M - The feel is medium-full bodied, with adequate carbonation, somewhat thick and sugary. Goes down smooth and easy for the moderate 7.00% abv. 4

Overall, an impressive, if somewhat standard example of a nice milk stout from Flesk Brewing. Nothing extraordinarily groundbreaking or inventive, but a solid example of the style.

Flesk Brewing Running Man Milk Stout -----4/5.

Bottle shared by Curran, thanks man!

Pours a dark inky black, with a one inch head, and soapy lacing down the side.

Smells typically milk-stouty, with vanilla cream, lactose, chocolate, and a small amount of roasted malt.

Luckily, the roasted malt is stronger in the taste- good, because I love the flavor. There's a creamy almost chocolate milk flavor, with whipped cream as well. Only slightly bitter from the roast, mostly quite sweet, without being over the top.

This one has a medium size body, with a medium amount of carbonation, and a really nicely creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Nothing trailblazing for the style, but still just really drinkable and tasty.
