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

This beer intrigued me at the start of my craft beer interest. "Milk stout... sounds odd, but I'd like to try it", I thought. It was close to what I imagined. Something like a cream stout. Sweet and creamy. I was sold.

Appearance: Nice and dark. I love stouts. A tinge or red on the edges, but otherwise very dark. Tan head, doesn't stick around very long.

Smell: Sweet cream, vanilla, chocolate

Taste: Sweet, creamy, vanilla, chocolate, coffee finish. Not very bitter.

Mouthfeel: Not as thick as I'd like, but good. I'd prefer it to be a bit creamier feeling.

Overall: This is my goto, year round, readily available stout. Being near Lancaster, it's a bonus, as I can find this beer EVERYWHERE!
