This poured an opaque dark black with a thin tan head that disappeared fairly quickly. There is definitely roasted espresso, dark chocolate and a bit of bread on the nose. At first I don't get much flavour but there is that espresso and chocolate in the aftertaste that lingers for a short time. Funny enough that as it warms up the flavour profile does change a bit almost reminding me of a cold Double Double from your local coffee shop. The carbonation balances the mouthfeel down a notch to a high medium. I think this one of those beers that would benefit as a nitro just to smooth it out a bit more.

I'm not much of a fan of darker beers, I read about milk stouts and was interested so I went out and got a bottle of this. Confirmed my opinion on the brew

The pour results in a very slight fizzy khaki colored head the quickly disappears... What remains is a very slight lacing and thin to moderate collar... Carbonation bubbles can be seen bursting through the surface... The color is a deep brown that allows a bit of light to leak in around the edges providing a light reddish hue of undertones... The aroma is exactly as expected and rather enjoyable... Mild espresso is at the forefront of each and every whiff... Next in line is the roasted malt... Finally there are hints of vanilla and caramel... The flavor profile is much more muted than I would have expected based on the stellar aroma... Everything seems to be watered down a notch or two... On the lighter side of medium bodied... Some fizzy carbonation to start... Chalky throughout... Has some characteristics similar to espresso (minus the carbonation)... Not a bad beer, but nothing to memorable either... The aroma is stellar, but all other facets are average or only slightly better...
