A really good Milk Stout, that being said I'm still partial to Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout. This one is smooth and creamy with a nice chocolate finish, but it has a charred/roasted flavor up front that I could do without. Looking forward to trying Very Mad Cow in the future.

The beer pours a creamy dark tan head. The beer itself is an opaque dark black with some purple notes. The beer leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The beer smell has strong lactose notes, give it a milky, sugary smell. The smell also has roasted malt notes as well as dark chocolate notes. The various notes blend rather well such that you get a nice milk chocolate smell along with a nice milk smell. The beer taste is similar to the beer smell in that the beer has a strong lactose note mixed in with roasted malts and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is extremely smooth for a milk stout to where it is almost silky. Despite a heavy body, the beer also has a biting carbonation. Overall, the beer was very uniquely lactosey and very good. Highly recommend.
