Some chocolate in the malt and maybe to much coffee. Not what I would consider creamy but I wouldn't consider it thin either. Overall a nice little stout that was enjoyable but nothing special that I would seek out.

Poured into a tulip pint.

L- Pours chocolate-brown with almost no head. Not unattractive, but does look "thin" for a stout.

S- Really picking up a cocoa vibe in the aroma department.

T- not finding much of that cocoa I smelled, there are coffee notes. No 'milkiness' at all. Too much hop action for the low level of malt.

F- Way too thin for a milk stout.

Not a bad beer, but not a great one. I certainly wouldn't turn it down if I were offered one, but I don't see me paying for another one either.

Dark chocolate brown cow appearance and light mocha head. Not that sweet in presentation, but has some nagging cloying properties. The lactose is definitely there, but the roast coffee flavors predominate, and it finishes with a nice char. Very bready-dark german pumpernickle and barley. Flavors are spot on, a little weak in the nose but the too thin, too sticky mouthfeel hurts.
