Clear black colored beer with very little head formation, looks a lot like a glass of coke.

Smells sweet per the style with a good chocolate aroma. Patent malt and a scent of mint. Slight smoke scent.

Starts out slightly sweet with a smoky after taste. Little bit of chocolate and coffee flavor, this seems to lake substance to it, lot like drinking a coke.

Mouthfeel is soda pop.

Overall there isn't that much to it. Like drinking a beer flavored soda.

3.14/5  rDev -16%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Although bottling date info was printed on the label, there were no marks or hole punches to indicate the actual bottling date.

Deep mahogany, near black body that starts with a thick yet very loosely bubbled head that quickly fades to nada. Chickory with nearly hidden roasted grain scent; spearmint. Mildy chocolate-like flavor with a slightly spicy character; fair hop bitterness. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.

A lackluster milk stout with little visual appeal other than the body color and a somewhat strange, almost lightweight stout flavor. Drinkable and somewhat interesting, but hardly a must-have beer.

Pours a dark black with little head. Strong aroma of coffee and cherries which carried through during tasting. Mouthfeel was silky.

Overall I really enjoyed this beer. I would definitely buy it again as it is a solid example of what a milk stout can be.

The only thing that could improve this beer would be a creamer mouthfeel and a bit more head. I am curious to try this on tap as it might be even better.

Bottom line: A solid beer that I really enjoyed. I would buy this again and recommend to those who enjoy stouts and other malt forward beers.
