This is a rum barrel aged milk stout with toasted coconut. Growler fill from Green's Piney Grover, poured into a Highland snifter.

A: Pours a one-finger off-white head, rapidly receding to a thing ring around the edge of the glass. The body is dark, cola brown; light highlights show up when held to the light, but this beer remains mostly opaque.

S: Rum, rum, coconut; a bit of lactose sweetness, and I persuade myself that I detect a bit of cocoa powder.

T: I mean this in the best possible way--rum comes through front and center, and it tastes almost as if I had take a Guinness Extra Stout and added half a shot of dark rum and a whole shot of coconut rum. Some typical milk stout flavors show through--lactose sweetness, chocolate, a light roastiness--but the rum barrel definitely takes center stage, without this quite tasting like a glass of straight liquor.

M: Medium body, pretty straightforwardly a milk stout, with a bit of sharpness on the tongue.

O: The barrel pretty well dominates this beer. However, it does add a sweetness and complexity beyond what the standard milk stout can deliver, and the coconut peeks through nicely. It's fun, it's tasty, and I am happy to finish the two pints all by myself.
