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.
Serving type: on-tap

Received as an extra in a trade, poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a nice brown 'too dark to see through' hue with a one finger mocha head that fades to leave spotty side lacing and a thin blanket.
S - Aromas of light lactose, faint chocolate, pleasant chai spices.
T - Taste is light chocolate, faint cream, fair amount of chai that actually ends up giving this a slightly bitter finish. Fairly straightforward, delivers what it promises.
M - Mouthfeel is slightly on the thinner side, would like it a bit more creamy/smooth.
O - Overall, this is a solid milk stout. Chai is a nice addition and while I'm not a huge chai fan I can respect what this beer is.

a chai milk stout, a noble concept, but this one isnt executed to perfection by any stretch. its got a rich lathery dark brown color with an inch of tan head that leaves decent lacing as it sips. the nose is not overly spicy, no cardamom or peppery heat at all, which i usually get from chai. very little sweetness too. the taste starts like a normal milk stout, velvety smooth and robustly bitter from the dark unmalted barley. balanced only by the lactose sugar, its a nice start. then comes the chai, which is an odd brand of chai i think, lacking the usual spice complex and tasting more like a black tea than anything else, it leaves a very strange almost acridly bitter aftertaste, which ruins what the milk sugars had previously established. a little spice comes back after the swallow, but it is no longer welcome. full body with a bit of a chalky texture after the smoothness on the way down. a good idea, but they could have pulled it together a little better i think.
