look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Bottled 1/16/13. Pours black into a chalice with some garnet hues visible at the far edges of the glass when held up to light. An initial 2 finger khaki head fades quickly to a ring. Some decent lace.
Smell is mostly sweet milk and roasted malt, with a touch of brown sugar. A little subdued, but this seems typical of milk stouts.
Flavors pop in the mouth. Roasted malt and lactose sweetness in the front, followed by some caramel and a slight, earthy hop note before finishing with a little bitter, roasted coffee. Pretty nice stuff.
Medium bodied, smooth, and pretty easy drinking. Not as viscous as a typical RIS (as this is a milk stout after all), but by no means watery or light bodied. A little creamy. ABV isn't noticeable at all.
A super solid milk stout I bought as part of a mix-a-six. Definitely not regretting it. As far as milk stouts go, this fella is full of flavor and drinks easy. I could see having a few of these.
