Brewed and bottled in Cincinnati OH.
Pours black with a frothy cappucino head. Bubbles even look milky...
Sheets of lace form on the sides of the pint glass. Tan foam rises to the 3-finger mark.
Smell in the glass doesn't amount to much when chilled, only a faint roasty malt. When swirling the dregs in the bottle, there was a plummy smell, like a Baltic Porter.
Taste is rich and roasty, multi-dimensional. On one hand, it's smooth and velvety in mouthfeel, but is backed up by a host of flavors. Charred chocolate cookie, earthy yeast, lactic fullness all come around in a big way. Slightly too sweet to give it higher marks for taste.
This is a perfect session stout if you are so inclined. Cheers!

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.
