I have the nitro milk stout
A- Opaque black, I held it up to a light and barely any shown through. Tanish head with great retention. I was told to pour it straight down the center, which I did. I was expecting a little better head off the hype the guy who sold it to me, not really that "nitro-y", just a stout with good head retention, which is just like saying a stout...
S- roast, some residual sweetness
T- nice clean attack, has that classic Guinness-like start where you think, "wow, this is pretty light, I could probably drink a million of these". The roast flavor tempers the lactose sweetness well. Usually when I see milk stout I get ready with a glass of water afterwards to wash the candy like sweetness out of my mouth, which is not necessary with this beer. The sweetness lingers on pleasantly.
M- very smooth and almost refreshing despite the sweetness.
O- I want to love this. As I have gone through my pint I keep nudging up the taste score. Its just too sweet to take over as a go to stout
