Poured with an inch thick head.

Smell: Malty and neutral. Not a particularly overbearing scent
Taste: Clean and malty initial taste followed by a sight hoppy/bitterness. Some cocoa aftertaste
Mouthfeel: More crisp and biting than smoother nitrogen infused versions of this type of beer
Overall: A good attempt at a milk stout but not particularly memorable or smooth.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a medium beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, lactose, chocolate, coffee and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a hearty roasted malt character up front that is quickly followed by some lactose creaminess and flavors of milk chocolate and black coffee. There’s some mild sweetness as well. The hops presence is also mild as it should be in this style but is strong enough to create some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to pound down for while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Reviewing a bottle of milk stout. Not sure if this is their King Oak Milk Stout.

Popped the cap in the kitchen. Good thing, as this one proceeded to foam out of the bomber for at least 5 minutes. I lost at least 1/4 of the beer. Huge, over-carbonated foam head on top of a jet-black liquid. Once it settles out, you've got tons of sticky foam.

Big coffee and carbonized malt aroma. With your nose in the glass, you absolutely get a hint of milk or lactose.

Big rich dark malt, the flavor of which is whisked away by carbonation. Burnt is the primary residual flavor, with charred malt and some bitter chocolate coming forward. A little lactose sourness is there too. Moderate bitter finish.

I'm kind here in my rating. His one is flat out too fizzy. Kills the richness of the beer.

Overall, somewhat off-balance in flavor, and mouthfeel is all wrong. I'm one and done with this.
