Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee. Dark and delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. “Preconceived notions are the blinders on the road to enlightenment.” Udderly delightful.

Looks like a stout -- a dark brown color, and with very little head. A little more head, and this would score perfect with me.

It smells like coffee and spices.

The overall taste is very sweet and tastes of strong cream, coffee, chocolate, oats and barely. I do not taste any hops in this stout. It's not a particularly thick stout, but it is sweet and the taste is very good. It goes down very smoothly, and would compliment desert very nicely. I get the impression that cherries or anything with cherries (cherry pie, cheesecake or cordials) would compliment this stout very nicely.

I really enjoyed this beer. I think for a stout, it is perfectly balanced and sweet, but not too sweet. It smells like creamed coffee and goes down easy, with just the right amount of carbonation and bitterness. Love it.

Would have given this one a 5 all the way around but it had no head, and I can remember better beers.

A- Black and rich. Little to no head even on an aggressive pour.

S- Roasted coffee all the way. Slight sweetness.

T- Coffee and toasted oats when it hits the palate. Finishes sweet and creamy.

M- Lingering sweetness that coats the mouth.

O- Very good milk stout. Great beer to drink while smoking a pipe full of a sweet tobacco blend. I would love to try this beer in a nitro bottle.
