Wanted to try a milk stout and this is one of the highest rated for the style.
A - Nice dark black color typical of a stout. Poured like syrup. Nitro induced super fine off-white head that seemed to hold true and trail lacing down the entire glass.
S - Tons of chocolate, roasted, malty, and caramel smells. The nitro can seemed to really accentuate the rich tones.
T - A sweet brew that is like a standard stout except with a creamy sweet flavor that is different. Similar to a typical Guinness Export stout but with a sweeter edge.
There is a roasted flavor that comes second and is pretty good. Some light bitterness from the roasted malt but no discernible hops. A good desert beer if that is all you are going to have.
M - Mostly thick mouth-feel with a sticky nature to it. Definitely on the sweeter side and I couldn't drink more than one or two . Moderate "nitration" that makes it silky and smooth.
Overall, a good beer if you want a sweet cocoa inspired beer that is a little more balanced than a Young's chocolate stout. This is a quintessential milk stout with the sweetness and mouth-feel but is very velvety. It's not my favorite beer but I know that there would be a time and a place to have this again. Try a six pack in the winter and you won't be disappointed.

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.
