3.88/5 rDev -0.5%
On tap at the Barrel Republic.
Appearance: Opaque black-brown with a durable tan head that leaves patterned, sticky lacing.
Aroma: Dark roasted malts with coffee and dark chocolate. Some complexity.
Flavor: Moderately rich. A bit too sweet but otherwise quite good, and some bitterness (and faint smoke) kick in for the aftertaste.
Feel: Medium+ body with good light carbonation.
O: True to style, albeit with a touch of smoke, and worth trying.

22oz brought back from San Diego.
A- Poured from the bomber to a snifter with a pitch black body. Light tan head builds to about a finger high and has decent retention and a creamy texture. Thick, frothy ring leaves some nice clouds of lace at the top of the glass.
S- Impressive blast of dark roast malts for a 5.3% brew, stacks up with the higher ABV stouts as far as richness of dark grains. Notes of chocolate, coffee beans and toasted cracked cereal grains. Some yeast hints.
T- Follows an inviting aroma with a roast malt decadence on par with other great Milk Stouts I have tried. The yeast opens up a bit more here with some fruity, apple and bread hints but the dark grains dominate. Coffee, chocolate, toasted nuts, cracked grain mash and some sweetness comes to mind.
MF- Silky support from the use of lactose in the brew to a nice creamy thick body. Moderately high carbonation. Drinks bigger than 5.3% in a good way. Finishes with some roasty bitterness lingering.
Random grab in San Diego bottle shop that payed off. I enjoy a stout that drinks easily but also brings a ton of roast malt flavors to the table. Not quite Left Hand Milk Stout good but worth trying for any fan of stouts.

a: its a rich, silky black color with a 1 finger tan head that fades pretty quick and looks like something on top like a coca cola
s: tons of toasted malts, a nice sweet milky creaminess. milk chocolate powder, and some nice woody notes
t: right away i'm thinking this tastes like a cola. there is a definite milky sweetness in here, as well as like a sweet vanilla too. malts play their role in in providing the caramel-syrup flavor. it an extremely smooth tasting beer, and fizzy - like a cola
m: its a light mouthfeel, that i might expect from a porter. but the carbonation is such that it (as mentioned) is almost fizzy in the mouth. like soda. very drinkable due to the lightness of the mouthfeel
o: its very sweet and fizzy - not something i was necessarily expecting. its sweet like a milk stout. i'd like a little more of the roasted notes. the sweetness and carbonation do make it feel like a cola to me, not decided if i'm down with that yet
