Aroma is barley, coffee.
Black , dark brown color, almost no head.
Taste is some toast and chocolate flavors, but weak.
Feel is Watery for a stout; I'd call it a porter or even a dark ale.

Started comparing this side-by-side with Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout; then quickly realized there is no comparison.

It's a little under flavored, but honestly it's easily drinkable. It's really not a bad brew at all and I will get it again.

Average milk stout could use a little more.
I would drink again

This is not a bad Milk Stout, I kinda liked it, as long as you like the style. A bit underwhelming in the aroma department. Would I drink again, yes, but when you have Milk Stouts like Left Hand, those are a better choice.

well, this one was disappointing.

none of the traits you are used to or may look forward to in a milk stout are here.

you can see right through it, you have to work to smell any chocolate or coffee or anything, it's absurdly thin - bordering on watery, there's no head no matter how you pour it.

it honestly looks like a glass of coca-cola.

as it warms you maybe can smell some cocoa, but again you have to work for it. that's about it for character of any kind.

it doesn't feel like a stout when you drink it and it only tastes like a stout if you're comparing it to a lager or something. actually even then it's hard to say it tastes like a stout. there is just very little taste here at all.

i don't normally want to come here and bash a beer and i'm trying hard not to bash this one but i would not buy this again and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Aroma is light roasted malts, a good hint of tartness and mild sweetness. The flavor is roasted malts, mild milk sweetness and a sourish/acidic finish.

Poured into chilled stemmed/elongated tulip glass with ale at about 45 deg F. Thin creamy 1/4 in. head supported by rich amber, chocolaty color beneath. Inviting aroma with subtle but distinct caramel notes. First wash over tongue very much thinner in mouthfeel than anticipated but not unpleasant, with little bitterness to me but no sweetness. Second and subsequent tastes reminding me much more of a lighter, crisper Czech Pilsner than a Stout but with toffee-ish aroma inside the glass—the light-beer feeling very disappointing given what I paid. Nevertheless, could be paired well with foods in all seasons given its lightness. Not terrible but would have to say on the poor side for a milk stout leaving plenty of room for improvement. Would consider buying again though to pair with richer meals (e.g., Could work really well with duck)
