look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Side of label has an area for date to be notched/stamped but has no such markings. However, neck stamped BEST BY 12/15/11, pretty much only visible when bottle is empty.

Appearance - Black body. Two finger light brown head with great stick and good retention.

Smell - Coffee, cream, and chocolate. As delicious smelling as this style always seems to be.

Taste - Sweet. Slight alcohol. Coffee body without being very bitter. Great balance. Mild-ish from what I've seen so far from the style.

Mouthfeel - Possibly a little more watery than other examples of the style, but still creamy and medium bodied. Slight solvent/astringent finish/aftertaste which is mild enough not to detract from it at all. Head offers both some frothy creaminess and some extra solvency.

Overall Drinkability - Decent example of the style. May not be the best option available, but if it's the only milk stout in your area, you won't be disappointed.

A - Poured out a dark, dark burgundy color with a one-finger, light brown head of foam. It left behind streaky lace on the glass.

S - Mostly smelled of milk chocolate with some toffee notes, too.

T - It tasted of milk chocolate and rich roasted malt. There was a touch of toffee and caramel flavors, too.

M - It was soft and smooth, almost milky smooth. A light to medium bodied stout.

D - This is a fine milk stout. Good flavor and very easy drinking.

Oily black with rim of crème brulee foam that webs. Deep chocolate malted milkshake nose – yum!
Oily coffee bean with cocoa powder, plum and a grainy charcoal dust thing. A mirage of orangey bark, but no real hops.
Cola finish and caramel linger. Round, smooth, medium, some stick.

What a misleading name! This is silky smooth and sweet. Cloys a bit, but that’s the style.

Top milk stout.

12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a deep brown/black with a thin off white head. Deep chocolate malt aroma. More chocolate malt in the flavor. Medium bodied. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice sweet finish. Very drinkable. If you like sweet stout, you should check this one out. Solid.
