Pitch black, with a creamy light brown head. Great retention and lacing!

Smells like roasted malts, dark chocolate, brown sugar, burnt toast, coffee, and vanilla. A tantalizing aroma.

Tastes like dark chocolate, cacao, malted milk balls, burnt toast, toffee, black coffee, and vanilla. Smooth, lightly sweet, but with a decidedly roasty coffee bitter finish.

Creamy feel; medium, medium carbonated, slick.

A top tier milk stout. Tastes ridiculously good for its abv. Amazing.

Pours dark. Thin head. Coffee aroma. Light malt body with heavy bitter coffee finish. Better than expected. Love the packaging.

I taste sweet milk chocolate, slight cream taste from the lactose milk sugar, the body is about medium I would say, this beer definitely fits the bill of an milk stout & at 4.9% abv you can put back 3 or 4 of these cans easily in a session. Cheers! B

Best of their beers!
a) Pours a dark chocolate colored body with limp head that laces not so much.
s) Roasty, milky sweet, chocolate.
t) Starts firm enough, starts roasty, with a lots of lactose and creamy chocolate flavor that balances with a bitter edge. Nice.
f) Thinner than I l'd like, mod. carb. but ok.
o) A pleasant light stout finishing mid-pack. Sessionable low ABV, plenty of flavor.

Can from work colleage, DG.

Not bad for coming out of a can. Aroma Is coffee, toasted malt. Dark black, frothy white head. Taste is a bit overly acidic. Some chalk.

Look: Black, no head.

Smell: Dark chocolate, milk, chalk.

Taste: Same as the aroma, except instead of milk the flavor is more cream.

Feel: Smooth, almost creamy, slightly chalky.

Overall: One of the stranger brews I've had. It's like other stouts, only with the chocolate and coffee taking the background and milk/cream the forefront. I quite enjoy it, and will likely be exploring this style more.

It does not pour viscous and the color is off black on the pour. Smell is just generally sweet. Tastes seems to be missing something, tastes almost ashy though there is sweetness. Feel is light and watery. Overall it is an ok light milk stout but nothing crazy.
