I had this a couple of days ago on tap after eating pizza. I liked it and later bought some to review at home to get an accurate review, not one disturbed by the pizza.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle with no date on bottle. States Nitro Milk Stout.

A: Poured aggressively and got a small head that really stuck around to the end. Thick lacing also stuck to the end. It is a drark-brown, almost black color. Opaque.

S: Sweet chocolate milk, sweet coffee.

T: Sweet coffee, chocoate foreward and a little vanilla afterwards. Roasted malts.

M: Very smooth and creamy.

O: I really like it. Not very hoppy but well-made and an extremely smooth beer. This is dessert for me.

An almost black beer. No surprise. Tan head. Some lacing.

Chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Roasty roasty.

A nice, roasted grainy flavor. Slightly dry. Simple

A seriously thick mouthfeel. According to style, of course. Semi solid.

This is a really good beer. It's pretty obvious what the brewer's intentions were. I can't blame them there.

A: The beer poured very dark with almost no head to speak of.

S: The beer smelled like a sort of sour milky/hoppy mix. Like spicy sour milk.

T: The taste was very disappointing for me. There was much more milk on the nose. The flavor was more coffee and bitter than I was expecting. The burp tasted better than the beer.

M: Medium bodied with a somewhat creamy feel. It coats your mouth with a sort of coffee like flavor.

O: Wanted to like it, but I wanted a milky creamy beer, but I got a bitter coffee stout.
