I just picked up my first 32oz growler from the beer room at Wholefoods on the bowery. Can I just say I love that there is a special beer room, it's so smart to have this space cater to the beer geek.
Sorry, back to Joe Mama!
I've always liked the creaminess of the Milk Stout style, but this one has the coffee notes that the others are missing. I really am enjoying this. Nice smooth mouth feel but less thick than a standard imperial stout. Yeah! Thanks Keegan!

Poured from the growler into a pint glass. Consumed with a hearty breakfast on Christmas Day, 2009, in lieu of the Founders Breakfast Stout.
A: Body is black with a white head. Some splotchy lace left behind.
S: Roasted malt and coffee beans.
T: Nice. Roasted malt and coffee (again), with a hint of chocolatey malt. Finishes with a coffee-like dry bitterness, but it doesn't overwhelm the way coffee can in some coffee stouts.
M: Nice creamy feel to it. Light-to-medium in heft.
D: Pretty good. I enjoyed most of this growler, sharing some of it with a friend.

This pours a deep brown with a touch of ruby on the edges where the light will pass. The tan head of compact bubbles slowly settles to a thin cap with a thick ring of bubbles around the edge.
This smells of roasted and a mild coffee with a fig aroma a touch of sweetness.
There is a great balance of roast, coffee and lactic sweetness on the first sip with dark fruit and chocolate flavors developing shortly afterwards. There is little in the way of hops flavor but a moderate bitterness. The sweetness, though restrained as it is, does overtake the bitterness of the hops and roasted grains in the finish.
This has a nice weight on the palate being medium-full bodied with a light carbonation and some creaminess.
This a wonderfully balanced beer with a good roast and coffee notes and some bitterness balanced by a pleasant sweetness. I particularly liked that this has a lower amount of sweetness than my prior, cloying experiences with this style.
