Reviewed from (long-standing) notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into an Upland pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy, fairly dark gold. Low visible carbonation and a finger's worth of white head.

S: Nicely roasted coffee, milky sweet lactose. Not a lot of roasted malt character here. A touch of green or raw character to the coffee aroma.

T: Green coffee, creamy lactose sweetness, and white chocolate. Some mild roasted coffee bitterness. Biscuity malt body, and a touch of hop bitterness towards the end with residual coffee flavor.

M: Fairly light body for a "stout", but far from watery. Average carbonation sensation, and the alcohol presence is noticeable but not particularly hot.

O: An interesting beer, and I though tastier than Master of Disguise from Stone. But it's not anything I'd go crazy finding.

Bottle poured into a snifter glass

A: Pours reddish orange amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and leaves a little nice lacing.

S: Mildly roasty, coffee, milk chocolate, licorice, and a little toasty malt.

T: Coffee, toasty bready malt, fruity notes, black licorice, a little chocolate, piney bitterness, a kinda herbal minty note, and a little toffee sweetness.

M: A bit on the fuller side of medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy smooth.

O: A pretty solid "White Milk Stout" that's held up well with a little age on it.

Bottle share at Steve’s. White stout? Yea, I can see that. Nice bitterness on a gold body, mild head, white chocolate. Tasty, creamy, goodness.

Shared with Kyle.

S - Aromas of light coffee, super light vanilla, lightly vegetative.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, light light vanilla ama coffee notes. There is still a vegetative.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, smooth, a bit creamy.

This beer was sweet and malty, but with some interesting stout flavors as well (coffee and chocolate and vanilla). While I preferred the milkman version, this was still a pleasant beer, and I enjoyed mixing the two beers. For me, the mixture was better and more enjoyable than either beer by itself.

In addition to biscuits and malt, the overwhelming nose and taste of this was the flavor of a pasilla pepper (minus any capsaicin, there's no spice whatsoever). This was the first thing my wife commented on, too, unprompted by me. It also presents milk chocolate and tobacco, with a fleeting fruitiness coming through only on big gulps.But the mild chile notes up front were an oddity difficult to get past. Interesting, but not worth seeking out a second bottle.
