12 oz. bottle poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a dark cocoa brown into the glass. A one-finger head of light coffee-brown foam dissipates quickly, leaving a thin ring around the glass and small islands of bubbles and lace on the surface. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is almost completely black and solidly opaque, even at the surface edges.

S - Well-roasted malts, nibs of 80% dark chocolate, hints of powdered sugar. Roasting smells like a well-charred steak coming off of charcoals. Nose is relatively soft, but roast is always present.

T - Burnt toast, followed by bitter semi-sweet dark chocolate. Hints of anise peek thru. Bittering takes on the quality of wild floral hops in the finish. Echos of 50% milk chocolate linger after the finish, which is about the only place the quality of this being a milk stout really appears. No trace of the ABV.

M - Leans toward creamy, but with moderate carbonation that moves the beer across the tongue. Solid body, but not at all heavy. Nicely integrated components. Finish is relatively short, clean, and on the dry side.

O - If the goal of a milk stout is to smooth the rough edges off of a full-roast malt bill, then this recipe succeeds, but barely. It's a cup of medium-full roast coffee that needed two shots of cream, but only got one. Not a bad selection if you like a roasted style, but want just a bit of the edge taken off rather than sanded smooth.

Pretty good.

Poured into a pint glass.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left.

3.25 S: Roasted barley, tangy lactose, licorice. Some caramel, molasses, and maybe a note of coffee.

3.0 T: I'm not too crazy about the taste. It's a little too roasty or perhaps not sweet enough. The roast clashes with the lactose. It's not bad, just not what I want in the style. Roast, lactose, molasses, caramel. Less licorice than in the nose, but still some. Not much coffee either.

3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A little creamy, but I want more. Roasty aftertaste.

3.0 D: Again, it's okay, just not attuned to my preferences.

Milk Stout pours a black tan lacing head that just wont quit. There is an aroma that is similar to a sweaty tennis shoe. The taste however is creamy has a strong lactose and sweet flavors, with big hints of black licorice. Creamy and full bodies, nice carbonation. Overall if you can get past the horrible aroma, its a nice tasting and rather sweet stout.
