Live review. Poured from the 12 oz. nitro bottle that I bought from Save-On Tobacco & Beverage in Mentor, Ohio for $1.85 a few weeks ago into a clean, clear bottle using the correct technique described on the bottle. “Bottled on date of 04/30/2012.”
A Awesome spectacle right out of the bottle with the vigorous pour. It left a 4 inch creamy light brown head with cascading ultra thin bubbles rising up from the deep. Very dark body glows a dark mahogany in front of direct light. The head lingers for a long, long time. The look of this beer cannot be improved. The nitro bottle aspect of it alone provides enough interest and entertainment to make it a world class look. 5.0
S Creamy dark roast malt, some sweetness but a little thin as compared with other milk stouts. To my nose this is a rather average smell. 3.0
T Dark roast malt, nice gentle sweetness with a lingering sublte barley malt bitterness. Good tasting milk stout, stronger than the smell suggested. 4.0
M Smooth as silk which I attribute to the nitro. This is a good mouthfeel but I prefer the world class feel of Voodoo Brewing Company Cowbell since it retains a little bit of the harshness from the dark roast malt in addition to the gentle milk sweetness. 4.0
D/O Drinkability is good. Overall this is at least a good beer with the extra enhancement of the nitro bottle presentation. 4.0

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.
