Red Brick Sacred Cow milk stout on tap.
Clear but so dark it is opaque in the glass. Decent head.
Coffee in. the nose and, to a lesser extent, the flavor too.
Flavorful, even for style. Sweet up front with a mildly bitter finish. Nutmeg and, I think, some other spices.
O: a spiced[?] Milk stout? Cross between a winter warmer and a milk stout? Worth a try for sure.

When I saw this beer at TotalWine, I just couldn't resist picking up a bottle to try. Overall, I enjoyed drinking this beer - but it was missing the chai spice notes I'm used to in chai tea. I tasted plenty of yummy chocolate and coffee flavors, but nothing that screamed chai spices.

12oz bottle from Sherlock's (Marietta, GA). 7.98/ 6 pack. No bottle dating but this was just released within the past couple months. Served in a Brick Mason snifter.
Pours cola brown. Dark and opaque in the glass but brownish at the edges. Light tan head that remains for a while and leaves a good bit of lace.
Smells of baking spice and sweet cream. Sugars, cocoa and a little vanilla in there too.
Nice flavor profile. Bitter black tea, spiced similar to gingerbread, soft cocoa, mild vanilla and a little creamed coffee. Not terribly complex but easy to drink.
The body is about as light as body can get and still be considered creamy. Subtle but present carbonation. Semi bitter tea, lactose sweetness and a bit of those spices in the finish.
A pleasingly different take on a milk stout. Interesting flavors and easy to drink. It's good to see enjoyable new offerings from Atlanta's oldest brewery.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle active carbonation along the edges of the glass and some dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy dark beige head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of chocolate malts and roasted malts underneath slightly strong aromas of chocolate and chai tea spices (cardamon, cinnamon, and clove). There is a light hint of vanilla aroma as well.
T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with a lighter amount of chocolate malts and a touch of lactose sweetness. There is a very light hint of vanilla with a moderate flavor of chai tea spices (cardamon, clove, and just a touch of cinnamon) and milk chocolate. Light amounts of bitterness are present which linger slightly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slight amounts of dryness in the finish from the Chai tea spices.
O: Interesting but the chai tea spices are a little too overpowering (of the other flavors/aromas) for me. Glad I tried this one but I will probably skip picking it up again.
