From what I have read, this may be better on tap than in the bottle. I find it to be a nice, pleasant drinking dark beer. I poured well with a wonderful creamy head. If smooth and creamy is what you are looking for this may be your beer. It is on the sweeter side as are all milk stouts. It first tastes like a nice cold sweet cream coffee. Then comes the character of vanilla and roasted malts. The finish is similar to that of tiramisu or of bitter-sweet bakers chocolate. It would make a wonderful compliment to a large dinner with dessert. I prefer a nice brew to scotch anyway.
Serving type: on-tap

Good beer. Imagine Guinness or Murphy's with a little sugar added and you have this beer. Personally I'm not a fan sweets. This beer's sweetness is mild but it is too sweet for my liking. If Guinness is black coffee, this is a latte. Great for those who like the texture of nitro beers without the roasted flavor.

A-The pours was definitely fun. Just throwing it out of the glass. It cascades and everything. Nice creamy, nitrogen infused head. Dark body, not much light penetration.
S-Aroma is roasty first and foremost. Milk chocolate. Coffee with cream. A pleasant, textbook stout aroma.
T-The flavor is roasty again but I also get a somewhat noticeable grassy hoppiness in the back end. In between is coffee and milk chocolate or even mocha. A little chalky. Light, dark fruitiness.
M-The body is creamy but the carbonation isn't up to par. It's nearly flat and it really doesn't retain it's carbonation well.
O/D-Bought a single. Glad I didn't go for a full sixer. It was a cool beer to pour, and the flavors were pretty on point however, the carbonation was very flat. Still happy I tried this.
