great to see this style really taking off i saw two milk stouts in my area recently and just traded for one as well i am really intersted in this style so its good to be able to try many different samples
ok the aroma right off the bat is like molasses and burnt brown sugar then a little bit of roasted nuts int he end
taste was deep rich molasses almost like a soy sauce character in the very end but a real pleasant one! i actually drank this bottle super fast because it went down real smooth and was super enticing
my favorite element of all though was definitelyt he mouthfeel absolutely pure silk in there like a rich full bodied creaminess but at the same time a bit layered
the only thing holding it back was perhaps just a little bit too sweet almost savory like a dessert beer but maybe thats what it should be used for...

DATE TASTED: February 8, 2014... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith pint...OCCASION: the reading of A Storm of Swords begins... APPEARANCE: jet black body; unenthused thin brown head; tracings are basically sporadic bubbles... AROMA: some peat and smoke, but predominantly a strange combination: lactic, doughy malts and vanilla sugars argue with strikingly astringent turpentine chemicals--a challenge to take in... PALATE: medium-bodied, slightly dry; rather flat up front, with a beefy after breath ...TASTE: milky, yet the alcohol seems to impede a smoother flavor; some rum elements mingle with a plasticine undertone... OVERALL: This seems a forced attempt at steeping ABV at the cost of taste and experience; River Horse does Jersey proud with some offerings, but this brew is negatively aggressive--upon completing this review, I drank a second and only found the beer more troublesome to place in a positive light....
