look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Dark coffee bean body, ruby hue through the light. Cream colored head that holds up well, calming to a thick film. Lots of soapy lacing.

Aroma: Very subdued, faint lactose and mild chocolate aromas.

Taste: Also faint and hidden, roasted malts and a little bitterness in the finish. Subtle sugary lactose, some cocoa.

Mouthfeel: Lighter, watery.

Overall: Just not as tasty or hearty as I would like.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Dark cola brown with a fingers worth of tan head. Light amount of runny lace.

Smell- Faint aroma of roasted malt and chocolate.

Taste- Weak roasted malt and chocolate flavors. Doesn't taste bad, it just not as strong as you would expect.

Mouthfeel- On the thin side of medium bodied, but creamy like you would expect from a milk stout. An average amount of carbonation.

Overall- If you are looking for a good milk stout, this isn't it. This one has been castrated, the flavor is weak and the body is too light. There are definitely better milk stouts out there.

Pours a plain black color with a reasonably sized tan head.

Smell is weak--lactose, cardboard, not much else.

Taste is similar but even worse. This is borderline undrinkable.

Mouthfeel is better than the taste but still nothing to write home about.

4.8/10

It is St. Patrick's Day and I am drinking stouts of every stripe before heading off to an annual party. My local in-person trader, tone77, recently dropped off a huge box o' beer and this is another of that batch.

I saw no reason not pull out the stops and went with an almost-inverted pour. This always results in a huge head and this was no exception. Two-plus fingers of dense, rocky, light-tan head sat atop the beer and I awaited my chance to move in. Color was a deep-brown with garnet highlights and NE-quality clarity. Nose was chocolaty sweet as milk stouts are wont to be. Yes, Virginia, there was a smell to this one. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium and the taste was really thin for the style. It had a mild tartness to go along with the light sweetness of the malt. Finish was equally bland and uninspired. This was not outright bad so much as just disappointing, It lacked Ooomph, flavor, anything to redeem it. How sad!
