look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- 4 Looks black on the pour, but you can see it is super dark brown when held in light. There's a half-finger bubbly tan head that dwindles down to a ring around the edge of the snifter throughout. Its tiny bubbles lace the walls smoothly. Looks like a good, solid stout should look.

S- 4 Milk Stout's aroma is comprised of heavy milk chocolate up front and dark, roasted malts. There's the slightest hop presence in the background that gives it a cleanness. Not the most complex scent, but quite appealing nonetheless.

T- 4 Chocolate comes to mind at first with the taste of this brew. It is a little malty as well. It finishes with a touch of hop bittnerness to counteract the chocolate sweetness, and it works pretty nicely.

M- 4 Creamy and smooth medium-bodied brew that has ample carbonation. It leaves me a tad dry.

D- 4 This is an impressively consistent brew all around. I appreciate how well in line its aroma and taste fall; I found no surprises between the two. While I have had more interesting stouts, I must say that this is one worth falling back on. It has a nice sweetness that is well-balanced by just enough hop presence, and is light enough for the style that I could put down a few of 'em. I'd recommend and most likely buy again.

Wow!

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.
