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.

Recommendation for a high-quality canned stout from a reliable friend, so I was excited to try it. Look is jet black but thin with an off-white head that looked creamy but consisted of pretty large bubbles so made me a little nervous about how highly carbonated it was. Smell was roasty with appealing notes of espresso and dark chocolate, with some sweet cream in the mix. Very appealing. Unfortunately taste and texture didn't follow suit. Taste is bland with bitter coffee notes and minimal sweetness, tons of malt but in a middling, non-descript way. Feel is thin and highly carbonated, which isn't what I'm looking for in a milk stout. A passable offering in the category, but disappointing overall.
