12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, effectively black beer with a smallish, light beige head.
Smell: Chai-spiced chocolate, roasted malt, soft milky accent, minor vanilla, a hint of fruit.
Taste: Moderate roastiness, melty dark chocolate. Minor caramel, burnt toast. Agreeable creamy lactose quality. A little dark fruitiness in the background. Also in the background is the chai tea blend. Letting the beer just settle on the thing, you can start getting hints of it, otherwise, it's like white noise to the milk stout. Smooth, subtly spicy, roasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It's good to a see a few new milk stouts these days. I think chinchill would agree with me.

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.
