Poured from the bottle into a pint glass; fresh according to date on bottle ("best before May 2013"). Realized after purchasing that I should have purchased the nitro-bottle as I am a fan of a smooth nitro beer...oh well...still looking forward to this one!
Appearance - Dark, opaque in color; very limited head (possibly due to a weak pour given that most others report at least a finger's worth of head); the minimal head that did form dissipated very quickly but still laced decently around the edges of the glass as I drank it.
Smell - Coffee, chocolate, malt, almost candy-like odor. Very enjoyable...I can only smell it for a few seconds before I am obligated to take a big gulp...
Taste - Tastes like it smells...coffee, chocolate, candy-like. Malt-taste, sweet.
Mouthfeel - Very easy on the palate...probably even easier from a nitro bottle. Limited carbonation; an easy drink; soothing, creamy.
Overall - A nice milk-stout that is tasty, smooth, and easy on the palate. I probably wouldn't seek it out but I would drink one of these again if available. NOTE: I drank a Nitro version a few months later...very similar review, overall...
