Kind of a creamy taste, but a great body at the same time. One of my favorites

Enjoyed from bottle poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass.

A: Poured a brownish-black with a 1-2 finger head that quickly dissipated to wisps on the surface.

S: Rich, sweet chocolate; dark grains

T: Pleasant roastiness, with some sweetness and chocolate, balanced by hop bitterness.

M: Medium, with a bit of creaminess

O: A solid and tasty brew. Not the best stout I've ever had, but a good one. Wouldn't mind buying this again.

It just tasted too malty for my liking. Not a whole lot of roast or chocolate I would normally expect.

Pours nearly the same color as a Vernors Ginger Ale with a 1” cream colored foam cap that quickly dissipates. Big ginger nose and it is also prominent on the palate and brings a little ginger heat. Light malt flavors provide support. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Soy sauce, nutty aroma. Sweet taste with a slight pepper mouth feel. Reminds me of sweetened coffee.

Finally, an American milk stout that leans towards the sweet side vs. the dry/bitter. Really extreme glass lacing with this one: Don't think I recall anything exhibiting as much. Again, not super sweet as in say Mackeson, but very drinkable for those who enjoy this style. Smooth, easy drinking, not at all "fog-inducing," wrt the ABV. Very excited to taste the nitro version in a "head-to-head."

The first time I tried this beer I nearly cried tears of joy. Simply the best milk stout I've had to date. It had the smoothest feel and the taste was incredible. I prefer this version to their nitro version which is also a good beer. If you're a fan of milk stouts and want one that will rock your socks off, this is a stout that you must try.

Malty, milky, not too sweet. A solid but unspectacular brew. Would definitely buy again, but wouldn't go out of my way to acquire.
