ACBF sample

A-Pours very dark brown witha dark tan, thin head.

T-Lactose and really chocolatey chocolate milk. Cream. Roasted coffee to a milder degree. Bittersweet and a bit of burnt malt.

M-Light side of medium bodied. A bit creamy. Softer bubbles.

O-A well done Milk Stout. Never too sweet without proper accompanying bitterness. Better balance of flavors than many within this style.

Poured into a glass

A-deep dark reddish brown basically looking black. Extremely thin tan head.

S-nutty aroma of roasted malts, pleasing smells of chocolate and coffee

T-first and strongest flavor detected was coffee. Also tasted those roasted malts.

M-well carbonated, medium bodied

O-never had a milk stout before. Did expect more creaminess and sweetness but got neither. Still a very good beer with exceptional flavor.

Pours a cloudy, black color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of chocolate, slight hop, sweet malt, caramel malt, alcohol, yeast, and oatmeal. Fits the style of a Milk / Sweet Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of oatmeal, slight hop, sweet malt, slight yeast, hint of roasted malt, and a hint of chocolate. Overall, good aroma, feel, and appearance, but the body was only average.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. glass poured into a Better Better Authority snifter glass (thanks, Richard Hartogs!) and drank blind (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IHgqjsP3Cg), unknown brewing/bottling date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 2/3 - dark brown (bordering on black), no clarity (does not allow light to pass), initially tannish/off-white head gives way to subtle glass lacing, moderate-to-high carbonation with tight tannish bubbles most notable around the lacing, mild alcohol legs

S: 8/12 - subtle chocolate sweetness, dark coffee, mild lactose, roasted malts, earthy but subtle hops, little-to-no alcohol on the nose

T: 12/20 - the flavors match the aroma perfectly - on the front of the tongue, there is an admixture of dark roasted malts, chocolate, dates, raisins and almond; finishes slightly sweet with a residual alcohols and slightly astringent

M: 3/5 - light-to-medium body, no creaminess, slightly higher than desired carbonation for style; little to no alcohol or hop presence

O: 5/10 - decent drinking beer but misses the mark for a milk stout - no creaminess, moderate astringency, too far carbonation; thanks for the opportunity to review blindly, RH

TOTAL - 30/50

Overall a solid beer. I would drink again for sure. That being said it is lacking in some areas. The first being the appearance. I love a nice head on my stouts and this beer just seems to not retain a proper head well at all. I think this affects my ability to properly judge the smell but what i can smell is a bit of toffee or caramel. The taste is surprisingly crisp for a milk stout but i don.t mind that. A great aftertaste in my opinion too some surprising biter notes in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is pretty thin. This combines with the crisp initial taste to give this milk stout a very clean and enjoyable character. Will have it again.
