22 oz bottle poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.

L – Deep brown-to-black color with a 2-finger, creamy, bubbly, tan head. Really nice retention and some great sheets of lacing.

S – Mostly milk chocolate and sweet lactose, but there are also touches of vanilla and roasted coffee. One of the better smelling and more complex milk stouts that I’ve had the pleasure of having.

T – It starts off sweet with milk chocolate and lactose and then progresses to a bitter roasted coffee flavor. This definitely has more of a roasted character than any other milk stouts that I’ve had.

F – Light-to-medium-bodied with good carbonation, a creamy and slick mouthfeel, and a bitter and dry finish. Bitter roasted coffee flavors linger for a while.

O – This is a very interesting milk stout. I like my stouts on the more bitter, roasted side than on the sweet side, but finding the roasted character in a milk stout was an different experience. I definitely wasn’t expecting it, but that’s not to say it wasn’t a nice touch. It’s certainly very drinkable and another nice beer from COAST.

Pours a very dark wooden brown with a medium sized coffee colored head.

Smells of milk chocolate, lactose, mild vanilla, mild coffee roast.

Taste is far darker and more roasty than I expected, coffee type roast with fair bitterness. Chocolate again, plenty of lactose. Very good but not quite as good as I hoped.

Strong mouthfeel, full body and lots of carb.

A good milk stout that leans heavily toward the roasty end of the stout spectrum.

7.8/10

A: Poured from a growler to a pint glass. Had a black color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of tan-colored, foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Good lacing.

S: A sweet, enticing aroma of cream, malt, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of roasted malt, a hint of chocolate, light hops, and cream. A very well-balanced and easy going flavor. Like most milk stouts, this beer doesn't overpower your taste buds, but is still enjoyable.

M: A pretty good amount of carbonation with a silky smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a well made, likeable beer. Very much drinkable.

Big thanks goes out to one of my ex-girlfriends for sharing this one with me! Served from growler into a COAST Willi (proper!). Poured a dark reddish brown with a one finger dark tan head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, cream, and dark chocolate. The flavor was of sweet malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and cream. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. This brew was spot-on for the style in my opinion. Nice bit of roastiness with a kiss of sweetness. The touch of sweetness was what made this brew for me. If things would have been a little more robust on this brew it could have been an absolute homerun. Well worth your time trying this one if you see it around or even if you have to trade for it.
