3.14/5 rDev -16.5%
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.
