On-tap at Prime 16 into a shaker pint.

A: The body is black but does allow some light to come through, illuminating it with deep persimmon glints; above is a thin cap of fine light-brown foam that sticks around admirably and leaves tons of lace. Excellent.

S: Sweet lactose, light chocolate, and some almost spicy cocoa powder aromas. Pretty nice.

T: Follows the nose: milky-sweet at first, followed by some chocolate malt and a bit of spice. Bittersweet finish. Enjoyable, but unremarkable.

M: Extremely lively, somewhat prickly. So carbonated I can’t even tell what kind of body it might have. Medium?

O: Solid milk stout; I won’t be ordering it again, but I’m not sorry I got it. Definitely worth a shot if you like the style.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick, murky consistency. There was very little head or lacing to speak of.

S: A nice chocolatey, malty aroma. Very enticing.

T: Tasted of milk chocolate, malt, and a hint of coffee as well. This has to be one of the most robust, sharpest, and most flavorful milk stouts I've tried.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a dry, crisp finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A completely enjoyable, totally drinkable beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured an almost pitch black color from a 12 oz bottle. There wasn't any noticeable light penetration.
Massive, massive tan colored head that dissipates very, very slowly and leaves behind some really nice lacing.
Aroma is so very malty, with hints of milk chocolate, cocoa and roasted coffee.
Taste is slightly sweet upfront, with the tartness and hints of bitterness in the middle followed by a crisp dry finish.
Medium bodied, and the dry finish makes you want to have the next sip. Easy to drink and mouthfeel is not too bad either.
Tasty and flavorful stout, but misses just that little zing that can take it to the next level.
Definitely worth a try.

Black body far as I can tell in a well lit bar. Brown head that fades quickly leaving some noticeable lacing.

Big time roasted coffee, caramel and chocolate. It smells quite sweet and delicious.

Silky smooth, fills the mouth, creamy head with just a hint of carbonation. One of the nicest feeling stouts.

Caramel, dark fruits, cocoa and coffee. Sweet roastiness that mixes well. The aroma is a little better than the taste.

This is a nice stout. Feels great, smells great but the taste seems a little weaker than the aroma. This is a all around wonderful brew and should be tried if given the chance.
