A fine milk stout. Great black pour, much like espresso, with lots of lacing. I was thrown off by a heavy hop aroma, but the sweet taste covers the hop well until a little bitterness at the finish. I don't find the chocolate that many do, especially when compared to other stouts. Some coffee and roasted oat balances out the lactose. While nice and complex, I'm finding something about milk stouts is off putting to me.

Appearance – Pours dark black with a very nice chocolate colored head and medium lacing.

Smell – Very malty, with chocolate milk. A little weak, but nice!

Taste – Malt with lowfat chocolate milk. It’s tasty!

Mouthfeel – A little watery, and a little low in alcohol. It’s tasty, but could be turned up a notch (needs more alcohol, in my opinion).

Drinkability – A very good stout. A bit light, but very easy drinking.

From a bottle, pours black with a light brown wispy head.

On first smell, I feel like something is not quite right with this beer. It starts with some cocoa and bitter coffee, but then the roast kicks in and brings with it a very resin-like note that dominates the lactose and the overall fragrance of the beer. It turns me off a bit, but I prefer my milk stouts closer to the chocolate milk type.

However, when you get to the flavor, it is quite more balanced. It is still more roasty than a typical milk stout, but good lactose remains with balanced sweetness. Lots of chocolate, roasted oats, and a sweet velvet finish.

Maybe I just don't like something in the smell, but taste wise, this is pretty enjoyable.

Poured a black body with one finger tan head that left a little bit of lace ring. Aroma is pleasant java/stout as I get some roasted malts, close to coffee, some vanilla/milkey lactic notes, touch of chocolate even. Beer is well balanced and tastes like it smells as a light sweetness, more milk than vanilla or hint of vanilla chocolate, has subtle roasted and coffee malts behind it for a great beer. Basically, a sweet beer that isn't overly sweet and has a dry edge.
