650ml bottle. Served in a snifter 12/5/2014.

A- Dark brown body, minimal white head with fair retention time, no lacing. Nothing too special or out of the ordinary. [3.5]

S- Bourbon, milk chocolate, some dark fruit oxidation. That's really about it. It doesn't smell as sweet as I would expect a milk stout to be, or even roasty. [3.5]

F- Not a ton of depth on this one. Bourbon, milk chocolate, a bit of cocoa and then it falls off in terms of flavour. Hmm.. [3.25]

M- On the thinner side of medium body, a bit thin and slightly watery. Good carbonation. A bit hot but not quite a sipper. [3.25]

O- Plenty of bourbon in this beer, not as much of the beer itself comes out. Decent to drink, wouldn't go after this one. [3.25]

Final score: 3.31

Delicious milk stout. Vanilla, oak, coffee, but mostly lactose. Silky smooth mouthfeel

22 oz. bottle into a shaker pint. (not my usual tasting vessel... but works here.)

A: 5w30 meets caramel head. Beautiful for a milk stout. Lots of foamy head that sticks around. Tried to get light to go through it... don't try... it wont.

S: Lactose, yeast, raisins. Dark fruit

T: Coffee. A1 liquid beer form. Pepper. Steak. Honestly.... sounds dumb... but this would be the greatest accompaniment to a Waffle House rib eye in the history of Waffle House. Oats.

M: Light bodied.

O: Yalobusha tries hard... and damn it... give em a swing of your cap. But this is not their best offering in my eyes. I love a good milk stout... and this one does not disappoint... but is not exceptional at the same time. High marks... but missing some of the sugar element. People want to "know" they are tasting a milk stout. Lactose is merely 12% fermentable ... where is the rest of the sweetness?
