This is fantastic stuff! I fell in love with this beer/dessert on nitro-tap several months ago, due to it's amazing smoothness and creamy mouth feel and lovely, yet not-overpowering sweetness.
I tried this milk stout in the non-nitro bottle and was pretty disappointed because it was not the same as the nitro. However the Nitro bottle is just about as good as nitro tap and goes down so, so easily and is delicious as a milk stout.
Sometimes I want my stout to be intense, heavily roasty, and exceedingly deep in flavor, but this is not what beer is all about. It really excels at being easy, yummy, and smooth. Even a few of my friends who only drink commercial macro beers tell me this one is awesome! How about that?
Do yourself a favor and give this one a try! You won't regret it.
P.S. It is beautiful when poured vigorously into a pint glass and This one is easy to find in Chicago as of right now.

A - Poured very dark black had a thin tan head looked like soda foam. Great lacing rings left around glass.
S - Very sweet and honestly like milk chocolate.
T - Taste is great. Chocolate with vanilla undertones. Starts off creamy/milky and finishes a bit dry with a vanilla/caramel taste. So good.
M - Creamy, smooth, slightly below average carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Will definitely buy again

12oz bottle poured into a stout glass.
Pours nice and black, with little head that dissipates quickly.
Smells like sweet cream. Hint of coffee/toffee.
Tastes great. Creamy texture with a good amount of sweetness, but not overpowering. Subtle vanilla taste at first that is more noticeable on the finish. Slight coffee taste. I detect some slight spices, but don't know where that could be coming from.
Overall a very good beer. Bought a six pack of this and I'm looking forward to seeing how this tastes in a few months.
