Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip pint glass

The beer pours a deep brown/nearly black with about two fingers worth of dense tan head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving behind very little lacing.

The beer smells moderately roasty and slightly sweet, The aroma seems to fit into a nice middle ground of not being too mild, but also not being overpowering

The taste, like the aroma, is moderately roasty and slightly sweet. The sweetness seems to come more from a heavy handed use of crystal malts than from the lactose. The body is a little thinner than I would expect for the style.

Overall, this is a decent beer that is fairly easy to drink, but not something that I would seek out. I prefer my Milk/Sweet Stouts to be a bit fuller in body, and a have a little more sweetness from the lactose.

Poured from the bottle into my large frozen beer mug. Bottle has DOB of 6/27/14 stamped below the label. Pours a deep brown with sparks of light coming through. Delicious sandy head with an okay lace. Taste is of chocolaty malt with a good hop aftertaste to balance. There is a slight creamy mouthfeel. I love stouts but the hops make this one the best of both worlds. I can't see myself getting bored of this brew.
