A: Dark with a nice head. Lacing stayed on glass entire session.
S: Weak, but not bad.
T: Slight bite at first then smoothes out real nice
M: Creamy, easy to drink

Had on tap at the Founders Brewery. If I was able to drink more than 2 beers I'd drink another, however moving on to try another.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: solid creamy head at about a half a finger. Pitch black color in the glass. Rich creamy lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: pretty subdued overall. Milk chocolate and sweet dairy greet the nose. Light to medium bodied roasted malt present. Cream and pleasantly light.

Taste: tons of flavor packed and into this light stout. A chocolate, light coffee, and chewy toffee body bring the drinker in. The body And finish is solid malt and slightly burnt oak. Easy going, a great summer stout.

Mouth feel: medium bodied with a great balance.

Overall: one of the better milk stouts I have had. So smooth going down but has a ton of awesome complexity.

Served on tap at Founders, review is from notes.

Appearance was dark brown with a lot of creamy looking head.

Smell dominated by dark roasted malts and creamy chocolate.

Taste is really interesting, coffee and chocolate flavors up front followed by the creamy sweetness of the milk sugar. Sweet but never cloying.

Mouthfeel is great, with the nitro-tap helping keep the milk sugars sweetness in check.

Overall a really nice milk stout - I probably like Founders' oatmeal stout more, but this was a nice find during the summer.
