This is an excellent milk stout that is really the benchmark that all other milk stouts should be judged.

I love milk stouts ever since I gave them a try for curiosities sake. It was, at first, the brewer who drew me to the beer (Wittgenstein's infamous duck-rabbit). Nonetheless, the flavour struck me as rather soothing for a beer. It is dark and a tad-bit heavy (though not too much).

Good regional beer, not the best, but a good way to introduce yourself to the style.

12 ounce bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch-black color, with an eighth of a finger of a caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very aromatic with strong notes of roasted malt, dark bread, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla and some coffee.

Taste: Very good! Lots of roasted malt up front, imparting flavors of freshly baked dark bread, followed by some bitterness of dark chocolate and caramel-like sweetness, accented with some vanilla and a slight hint of coffee. Quite good!

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and creamy. No carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 5.7%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a really good milk stout. I really like the flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla and malt that this beer imparts. Really good.

Look: Pours bitch black with about one finger of head.

Smell: Vanilla chocolate blend. Has a hint of roasted peanuts.

Taste: Has a roasted peanut flavor, along with chocolate.

Feel: Medium bodied and smooth

Overall: Pretty good Milk Stout. It's a bit different from most milk/sweet stouts I've had before. Definitely worth a try.
