This Stout is a great example of the Milk stout style. Having had it both from tap & bottle it has a unique smooth flavor. This is a stout I can drink a couple of in a sitting.

Mouthfeel is sweet yet not over powering
Smell is roasted nuts and chocolates
pours black with a nice tan head that slowly fades.

Truly my favorite Stout to reach for on any given night.

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.

I was fortunate to get to taste this beer directly from a tap at the brewery while passing by on a recent trip to the Catskills.

This beer pours to produce a tan creamy head which is relatively long lasting. The color is dark black with ruby highlights. I pick up roasty/chocolatey notes in the aroma.

The flavor profile starts with an almost perfect chocolate/coffee flavor which progresses next into the milky notes (from the lactose) that winds in to a smooth, clean landing.

Having a moderate body, this beer is a great example of the style, and is softly carbonated as it should be.

Honestly, this is one of the best milk stouts i have ever had and would love to have some Left Hand to compare it side by side. A very drinkable beer year round.

Tommy Keegan hit this one right on the money!
