3.63/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a grand black color with a rich, frothy caramel-colored head.
Smell: Roasted grains and sweet sorghum joined with a striking, flowery anise scent.
Taste: AAaaahahhahaa. Sweet. No, seriously, it's rather sweet, with flavors of plum, toffee, root beer. Negligible traces of soy cover the tongue. Finishes dry and noticeably powdery. Contrary to other milk stouts I've tried, this one lacks that sour milk 'kick' I've previously encountered within the style.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and creamy, but with a constant cola-like aftertaste.
Drinkability: A excellent choice for a low-ABV go-to stout.
Serving type: bottle

Pours a deep dark brown with a finger of beige head that retains quite nicely and leaves a good amount of lace behind on the glass. The nose is mildly roasty. The roast in the flavor profile is very mild and is almost completely overwhelmed by the sugary sweetness that lasts into the finish.
I know that milk stouts are supposed to be sweet but the best of this style balance the sweetness with some nice roasted malt flavor. This offering falls too far into the sweet category for my liking.
Serving type: on-tap
