Very light. Not to sweet, not to thick. Good dessert beer for warmer weather. Wouldn't call this a winter beer by any means. Goes down smooth as silk.

This beer is just "fine." Not much sweetness is lent by the lactose sugar used, though it is a very smooth brew. Fine if you want a light-bodied, no-nonsense stout for summer or warmer weather, but not really anything to seek out either.

Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a tan color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, yeast, earthiness, piney hops, hint of citrus hops, and a hint of chocolate. Fits the style of a Milk / Sweet Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, dark chocolate, yeast, roasted malt, slight hops, and an earthiness. Overall, earthy, not too sweet, an odd milk stout.

Dark, sweet, relatively mellow for an American stout. Super dark in color, not much head. The nose is pretty subtle with faint hints of coffee. More chocolate malt than hops, but fairly well balanced. Very drinkable. 10/10 would order again.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a nice black color with a tan head. The aroma was roasted malt and cocoa. The taste was more coffee than malt. Overall, a really good beer.

This is a lovely dark-brown milk stout with a pleasant, creamy mouthfeel. It's thick, but not so thick as to be oppressive.

The flavor is slightly sweet and a bit earthy to my palate, but completely pleasant.

The can art is a bit creepy with the titular lady cow Lily blasting off in surprised fashion around the Moon with milk erupting from her udders.

which is to say: the can's art is AWESOME and I love every bit of it.
STA has some seriously talented artist(s) doing their product designs,
many of which have this sort of unsettling but wonderful feel to them.

it's a pretty decent (but not totally awesome) milk stout that comes in a very entertaining package.
