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.
