Poured from a can into a schooner, the beer is a brownish-black, dark, with a foamy, low profile, light tan head. Aromas of heavy roast forward, sweet cream highlights, and a coffee and chocolate backbone. Light on the nose...you really have to dig in there. Flavors are roasted forward, with a subtle note of char building up as you drink. Chocolate and cream notes on the palate, as well, but everything aside from the roast and char is very subdued. There is a cloying, sugary component that starts to build up as you drink, too. The body is thin and smooth, washing out the subtle milky and chocolate aftertaste. The finish is short, slick, and slightly watery. For me, I need a little more body and a little more balance in a milk stout. It's not bad, but there are much better offerings in this style out there.

Upon opening some mild carbonation, pour is midnight black with a coffee color head that lasted briefly. Smells like sweet baked goods, like a sugar cookie or such. Taste is very smooth and full of molasses/sugar and a nice stout flavor. Very good finish leaving you wanting more, also very light considering is almost jet black color. I would rate this a light med beer for sure. Very good and would drink again for sure.

Picked up a single from TW Arrowhead a month ago for $1.79. I believe it was canned on 7-10-15 and received at TW on 7/27/15.

Beer poured black with a tan head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is light roastiness and sweetness.

Taste is slightly roasted with some sweet lactose layered in. Hops seems to be a bit too light as this is a tad too sweet.

Feel is light to medium bodied and not overly smooth.

Not a bad beer and would drink again if offered but nothing to seek out with all the choices out there.
