Nitro draft pint, cascading lasted for quite some time. Rich, deep brown color with a creamy head. Delicious, with hints of chocolate and sweetness from the milk. An excellent stout.

Appearance - Pours thin black with thin light tan head that quickly dissipates to a small ring.

Aroma - The aroma is a pretty balanced smell of dark chocolate, strawberry and a very mild vanilla. There is also a mild maple and some roasted malts.

Taste - The taste is similar to the aroma but I am getting less strawberry and vanilla. There is a nice chocolate and roasted malt flavor combined with a bitterness on the finish.

Feel - Thin for a stout, mild carbonation pretty dry bitter finish.

Overall - The aroma was promising but I am just not getting very much strawberry or vanilla in the flavor.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Schlafly tulip. Pours near black with a 1/2 inch tan head that leaves some spotty lace and a nice tan ring at the top. Smells of chocolate and berries. This is a light-medium bodied, really good chocolate milk stout with a little coffee, vanilla and berry mixed in. Makes a great dessert drink. Glad I bought the 4-pack.

Just had one off the nitro tap. Creamy with distinct strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate, both smell and taste. For me it starts sweet berries and ends w some bitter chocolate, and it works good. Nice brew!

Poured out of a 12 oz. bottle. I've had this guy in a closet for about 2 months. Kept at around 70 degrees.

Look: (head) quickly dissipating head with moderate lacing. One inch or so of beige/creamy brown head.
The beer itself is dark black.

Smell: Sweet maple, ice cream, milk, chocolate, vanilla, berries. (go figure)

Taste: Roasty-Coffee with berries, Sweet almost like a soda, Chocolate mid to late taste, Light Chocolate bitterness. Very sweet.

Feel: A mix of creamy and syrupy. medium/full bodied. lightly carbonated.

Overall: They got rather close to a Neapolitan tasting beer. I didn't get very much separation of flavor. You can pick out the different components but they tend to bleed together. I like the creamy mouth feel with chocolaty/coffee/roasty malt flavor. vanilla and berries are a very nice compliment. Similar to drinking a soda with the sweetness.

Solid stout that's very creamy. Doesn't have a lot of carbonation. At least the draft that I had.
