Bottle of this stuff from Masterski. Thanks!

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: A dark brown, opaque pour yields a one finger, medium looking, dark tan head with good retention. Black body with lower levels of carbonation evident. Head fades to a decent wisp and ring. A ring and splotchy wisp remain but leave no lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Roasted notes, chocolate for sure with some milk sugar, sweet cream and some vanilla. Definitely a milk stout, though there's a bit of stale coffee in there that hurts the cause.

TASTE: Light roasted flavor with sweet cream and some lactose sugar up front, moving into a caramel sweet and vanilla sweet cream finish. Medium but lingering aftertaste of lactose, some roasted notes, caramel sweetness and a bit of bitter, dark chocolate as balance. Some stale coffee lingers as well, which doesn't help.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy enough on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly dry. Okay here.

OVERALL: This was alright, with some good roasted notes and plenty of sweet flavors that were enjoyable, but the stale coffee aroma and flavor plague an otherwise solid effort. This was fine, but it could have been much better. Thanks again Masterski. Always a pleasure.
