Bottle. Agressive pour as bottle suggests. Pours black with brown head that slowly turns into a thick layer of creamy foam. Aroma dominated by coffee with notes of dark chocolate. Flavors of coffee with a touch of sweet cream. A heavy beer made light by nitro makes an easy beer to drink. Finishes without any bitterness.

Poured from a 355ml bottle into a Fullers snifter glass.

Pours a black colour with a small off-white head.

Smells quite delicious, like milk chocolate.

Unfortunately the smell does not translate into taste. Acidic milky sweetness - a bit like cheese actually, coupled with the dark malts you'd expect from a 6% stout.

Overall not the worst beer ever but it's let down by how I assume the brewers weren't sure what a milk stout actually was.
