Another one from a great brewery thanks to kkipple.

Even with a careful pour I get a huge 3 finger semi darker but fizzy head that fades at a medium pace, over very dark burnt molasses brown color, almost black. The head leaves a sticky lacing as it fades.

Nose brings some dark malts, a bit of black patent, hint of roast, creamy lactose, light caramel, bit of vanilla.

Taste starts a lot different than I expected, very bold flavor, lots of toasted malts, a bit of roast and black patent malt, some light coffee and espresso even, a bit of creamy lactose but not as much as I expected. It's drier than I thought it would be too, but not a bad thing. It has a lot of toasted flavors, even a bit of toasted almond. Hint of vanilla, and very light fruits. A drier finish as well, but leaves a creamy lactose feel in the mouth, with a bit more of the roast and espresso late. A bit of bitterness comes through as well, mostly from the charred malts.

Mouth is medium to heavier bodied, somewhat smooth and a little creamy, and decent carbonation.

Drinkability is pretty good, bold strong flavors, but light delivery, smooth, a little creamy, nice dry finish and overall drier feel, with just a hint of a sticky feel.

A - Poured a nice very dark brown, almost opaque if it were not for the slight amount of light to be seen on the sides and bottom. Big almost two inch tan headed receded very slowly leaving a big time lace oozing down the glass.

S - Smell was light, but very pleasant. Sweet chocalate and sugar with a hint of a hop nose to it. Very nice.

M & T - Right off the bat it feels very thick, creamy and smooth like a milk shake, very nice indeed. Very frothy and suagry sweet, even the aftertaste was very sugar like. Big flavors of chocolate and sugar. As it warmed a slight hoppiness started to come through in the back, but it was very slight.

D - Overall this was very good and I would score another one for the guys over a duck rabbit. They really seem to know wheat they are doing, and keep scoring round after round with their brews. Great sessionable beer!

Being a lover of Milk Stouts, I had to try this one. It looks creamy and opaque black with a thin light tan head that accompanied the last sip. The aromas are of black and chocolate malt and a hint of lactose to add a complex souring. The flavors are strong bittersweet without being grainy. Light chocolate and coffee flavors rise out of the barley malt showing mild astringency and lactic sweetness and sourness. Light hops show in the finish. The body is firm and quite creamy. The finish is similar but shows a little graininess and harshness, albeit light. All in all, better than most, but I have had much better.

Poured as a dark brown with an almost caramel head. Very nice coffee aroma with a hint of cream. Has a upfront coffee taste with a nice creamy almost chocolate after taste. It is heavy on the mouth almost milky. Not too much on the hoppy side. Seems to be a great milk stout. Be one of my go to's for a milk stout

What I got to drink was enjoyable. Too bad every attempt at pouring it resulted in an eruption of froth; almost entirely head blasting out of the bottle like a beer geyser. Will need to try again...
