Thanks to LauraAndrew for this one...
Nice black liquid (cola/ruby edges when held to light) is topped by large tan head, looser than most sotut heads. Eventually, it settles to two fingers.
Smell is dark molasses and smoke, with a bit of hops mixed in near the end.
Flavour starts of heary and roasty, and quickly gets smoky. Just a hint of sweetness and coconut here.
Carbonation seems high for a stout, and body seems low.
Drinkable? Yes. However, there are some shortcomings here, and I've had much better stouts in my time. DOn;t get me wrong- it's solid, and I wouldn't turn it down. Actually a pretty decent brew.

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.
