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.

12 oz bottle pours an opaque black with quickly dissapating tan head. Aroma is smokey dark malt with coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee, chocolate, with distant dark fruit. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth with wet finish. Overall a competent milk stout.
