3.45/5 rDev -9.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a deep brown colored brew boarding on black. Upon serving there was a nice off white head that sat atop the brew. The head faded slowly over time leaving a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass
Smell – The nose is largely dominated by aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Mixed with these however are some smells that bring a sweetness to complement the roastier smells. Notes of caramel and milk mingle among the chocolate and malt to give a overall mocha espresso smell.
Taste – The flavors follow the nose very well. The taste begins with a roasted malt and coffee flavor upfront. The coffee is soon met with some milk however giving an almost cappuccino like flavor. More toward the middle flavors of dark chocolate come to the tongue along with a bit more lactose and some vanilla. The taste overall increases in sweetness at this point. More toward the end a bit of bitterness works its way to the tongue almost tasting of a bitter coffee and slightly herbal and earthy taste. All the flavor combine in the end to leave an oddly bitter sweet roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew was on the medium to slightly smoother and creamier side with a carbonation level that was on the slightly higher side. The higher carbonation took away a bit from all the nice cappuccino and roasted flavors of the brew but was made up for by the relatively smother body of the beer.
Overall – Not bad although the slightly bitter flavor at the end of the taste, which didn’t meld so well with the roasted and sweeter lactose tastes, takes away from the beer a bit. Although not the best milk stout in my opinion, it is well worth a try if you have the opportunity.

Deep brown hue and is only letting a bit of light through when held up to light. A quarter inch of tightly woven khaki colored head. Brussels lacing. Aroma of cocoa powder and lactose greets my nose. The body is silky smooth and creamy. I get cocoa and lactose quickly fading away when I take a taste.

3.96/5 rDev +3.4%

Very carbonated. Poured with a very tall tan head. A lot of carbonation which you can tell based on the pop of the bottle cap. The beer itself is dark brown. Smells of roasted malts, slight coffee and chocolate. Nutty and bready too. The taste is of dark, roasted malts as well as chocolate and espresso. It's a medium bodied brew that's smooth and sticky. Very solid beer here.
