A pleasant surprise! Never tried any Keegan Ales, made by a nearby brewer.
Poured almost jet black, with a nice coffee-colored head with good retention. Nose was surprisingly bright for a stout, with hoppy notes along with milk chocolate and leather
Mouth feel was a little thin for a stout, but not watery. Taste was outstanding; much cleaner and lighter than most stouts; this to me is a perfect "summer stout" with a nice amount of hops that makes it exceptionally balanced. Finishes with a little bit of a "sour" milk taste--not in a bad way, but like the slight sourness you get with hershey's milk chocolate (it would probably make an excellent pairing).
Drinkability is excellent--I will buy this beer again and again. It may not be a classic example of a milk stout, but it is an absolutely delicious beer.

From 02/19/14 notes. Had on tap at Brother Jimmy's in NYC. 16oz. pour in a pint glass.
a - Pours a dark brown color with one inch of very light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of cream, coffee, roasted malts, toasted malts, and light chocolate. Nice and simple but it all works well together.
t - Tastes of cream, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toasted malts, burnt malts, earthy notes. Taste has more cream and vanilla. Nice.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is smooth and easy to drink, no heat.
o - Overall a simple but solid milk stout. Nothing mind blowing here but all the flavors work well together and it is easy to drink. Worth checking out if you like the style, and could see this being a good starter stout for some new craft beer drinkers.
