Another bottle from a recent beer run to Philly. I know, I know, it is time to get moving on The CANQuest (TM) again and I promise you that it will happen soon.

From the bottle: "Series 924"; "Full Bodied and Silky Smooth"; "'It's okay to cry over spilt milk stout'".

My aggro pour resulted in two-plus fingers of dense, deep-tan head with excellent retention. Color was a deep, dark-brown, allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose was very chocolaty, not really sweet, but not bitter, either. It reminded me more of cocoa powder than anything else. Mouthfeel was full and silky smooth and the taste was mildly smoky to go along with the chocolate flavor. It was like drinking an ice cream parlor milkshake (as opposed to the watery stuff the fast food chains like to foist on us). Finish was semi-sweet which was a welcome change from the sweetness that usually comes with the style. I am glad to have tried it.

nice dark (black) with a dark tan foam on top. a very nice looking beer.
smells like hops. was really hoping this would be a real milk stout. never saw a milk with bitterness in it....
tastes.... like an ipa.
mouthfeel- heavy, thick.
figures an american "milk stout" would be an hoppy, bitter brew.... i remember the bass cream stout (retired?) and how creamy it was, how milky it was, how bittersweet it was... bitter, yes! but not hoppy bitter. i've said this before, but americans use the hops in an almost abusing way. please explain to me why this has become the norm. it's drinkable. it's creamy. it's very decent. i just dont understand why it has to be so hoppy. i can drink several of these, and i appreciate the 7% abv.

12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market, Salem Oregon. $1.89 Black body with a quarter inch sized creamy tan head. Creamy milk aromas over burnt oat notes..with some treacle thrown in. Taste is very cream like..with nice dark fruitiness and molasses and slight pipe tobacco..very nice. Nice feel in the mouth its not as thick as anticipated but still holds together. Very nice tasty stout here.
