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.

stout in a can! interesting... so I bought it at my grocer and cracked one open. pours a nice dark roasted malt color (almost black) as a stout should. lacing is kind of weak.. head a short stack of foam. some roasted malt and coffee and dark chocolate in the nose. taste: I asked myself out loud 'wheres the hops?' there isn't much bitter, nor is there much of any hop flavor. if I had to guess at the ibus I would hazard around 15 ibus tops. .. but then milk stouts aren't heavily hopped to begin with. the roasted malt and dark chocolate are okay but not great. the mouth feel to me seemed rather watery. I would have guessed that the abv was no more than 4%. ive had worse and better.. and made better as well. I give it a solid 3 out of 5. it is ok but I would not go out of my way for it.

Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma and the taste. Just a touch too subdued, would have liked a little more boldness. Overall, though, it has a little feel like chocolate milk, which is ok with me, lol.

This has become my go to beer for the winter. It's just an awesomely balanced stout that isn't boring yet isn't over the top. It's super drinkable. At $10 per six pack retail you can't beat the value either. This beer is really underrated.

This is thick and rich; but amazingly only 4.9%, which is very appealing. A contender with Left Hand's Milk Stout, for sure. Worth looking into other beers from this brewery. Found at Elkton.
