look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is a dark chocolate brown color with a finger of fluffy beige head that dissipates quicker than expected. The nose has a mild sour note which is very odd for a milk stout. The flavor profile is very sweet – sugary sweet. The essence of chocolate is present but in much more muted terms than expected.

At the risk of sounding redundant – this offering fell short of expectations.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours black with a fading head.
Nose shows a well-balanced mix of roasted malt, coffee and cocoa. Sweet-smelling, reminiscent of a cappuccino.
Sweet flavours, more coffee, roasted malt and lactose sweetness. Gets a little cloying later.
Lovely creamy carbonation, feels a little watery though.
