4/5 rDev -6.3%
(Served in a globe glass)
A- This beer pours a thick opaque black body with a thick deep tan head and a matrix of microbubbles trailing up the side of the glass.
S- The rich coffee aroma and black malt have an earthy quality to them with a cream note and mellow char in the finish.
T- The big roasted coffee malt has some earthy black graham notes and a dark fruity ester in the finish. There is a nice soft sweetness and some tartness that lingers after that.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle finish with no alcohol heat.
O- This beer is a nice rich full stout with some good hints of sweetness and no bitterness or harshness. I couldn’t find many of the flavors described on the bottle but it was very drinkable none the less.

A meal in itself. Almost perfect balance of bitter chocolate and some sweetness. Black with some head, bittersweet chocolate aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Incredibly drinkable. Fresh bottle from 20 west. Nicely hopped, being picky I would ask for a little more hops - but that's just to make it perfect for this day and mood.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pours black, shy of inky. Small khaki head. Thick collar. Wispy swirls on the surface.
Smell - Rich dark chocolate. Some burnt roast. No lactose, which surprises me.
Taste - Lactose makes an appearance right up front. Then the chocolate sets in. Great rich chocolate. The burnt notes come back too, which is a little odd. Lactose comes back in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Thick and not overly sweet from the lactose. Good body.
Overall - Tastes great, which I don't often think of milk stouts.

Black with a thin layer of tan mocha foam on the surface. A little bit of wispy skim and lace present.
Creamy feel with some light acidity from the roast malt. Residual ashy char, green hops buried underneath. Smells very malty and roasty, a little bit of coffee and blackened malt. Dry finish with a light bitterness. Very smooth any creamy from the lactose, though the acidity trips it up slightly. Slightly sticky on the lips though not overtly sweet, well balanced with the bitter roast. Overall a nice milk stout from 18th Street, worth trying.

Poured from a bomber purchased at Binny's on Grand into a tulip glass
A - Pours dark brown, almost black with a big 2 finger khaki head
S - Smells like milk chocolate
T - The cocoa and the lactose sugar work really well together on this one to create a very creamy and chocolately treat. Lots of sweet chocolate up front, with a little bit of a roasty, almost coffee-like finish. Almost no bitterness at all.
M - The mouthfeel was quite nice. Medium bodied and creamy
O - I have a feeling this is going to be a love / hate kind of beer for a lot of people. It is overly sweet and can be a bit cloying at times, but personally I loved it and felt that it was a lot different than most of the milk stouts that are already out there. If you are a fan of sweeter stouts (think ST Creme Brule, tuned down a bit) I would recommend this.

S - Smokey, malty, wheat and chocolate.
T - Same as the nose, lots of smoke.
