Drinking whilst typee.

A: Dark dark brown with a nice three finger head. Dissipates down to a nice sheen. Looks just about perfect.

S: Espresso with sweet cream smell, dark chocolate.

T: Awesome coffee bitterness balanced with malts and hops. Comes off almost perfectly bittersweet yumminess. This is the best stout I've had thus far dudes.

M: Perfect full bodiness.

D: This complex beer has so much going on, yet it remains very mild and refreshing. A definite A+!

3.74/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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
