The 16 oz can is poured into a snifter at cellar temperature. The beer pours a dark chocolate brown color with minimal creamy tan head of 3 cm that fades to nothing after a few seconds.
The aroma is some sweet chocolate and a bit of a hazelnut coffee note. I also get some roasted hits and there are no hops to be found here, nor is there any booze. The nose is a bit more mild than I had expected, but it is appealing.
The first sip reveals an average body with fine tingly carbonation and a bit of watery texture.
Flavor is all malt with some sweet chocolate and a bit of roasted malt and brown sugar. Not very complex or robust and the hops and booze are also hidden here.
While I enjoy the beer I find the flavor a little muddled and overall not as robust as I had hoped for when I opened the can.
Decent but not worth chasing down.

Smell: hazelnut and chocolate is detectable.

16oz can poured into Tulip glass. Very smooth and silky milk stout. Nice head and appearance.
Could not taste the 6% alcohol. This one got better as I drank it. Could have had another.
My third brew from Knee Deep Brewing and I have not been disappointed.

Type: 16-oz. can
Glass: Ball 16-oz. mason jar
From: Windmill Farms in Del Cerro (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $2.79
Purchased: April 27, 2018
Consumed: May 10, 2018
Reviewed as: Milk / Sweet Stout
Misc.: Canned on Dec. 11, 2017

Picked this up with five others at Windmill Farms. Knee Deep always kills it with their hoppy stuff, so was looking forward to trying a milk stout from them. Brief description online read, “Stout brewed with cacao nibs and natural flavor added. Contains lactose.”

Poured a pitch black color with four fingers of khaki tan rocky head. Slow bubbles creeping up along the sides of the glass. Good spotty lacing. Good retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled hazelnut, chocolate, roasty nuts, chocolate milk, Nutella, fudge brownies with walnuts and semi-char wood. (Smell - 3.50)

Tasted better than the nose. Hazelnut dominates. Also Nutella, chocolate, cacao, roasty nuts, pecan, chocolate milk, cocoa powder, semi-char wood and caramel malt. (Taste - 3.75)

Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Roasty finish. (Feel - 4.00)

A pretty good milk stout overall. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 3.75)

Pours a five-finger brown head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Hazelnut nose and flavor is sweet hazelnut, some cocoa. $3.45 for a 16oz can from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

Clever take on the name Stoutello---Nutella both feature hazelnut. The Jackie O Brewery had already taken the name Stoutella!!!! Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass, this beer features a huge dark tan head (as dark as Ten Fidy) with good retention and some lacing. The aroma is typical good Milk Stout. Malt, lactose and chocolate. The difference is the hazelnuts. They add another dimension to what is usually a sweet, smooth taste. The hazelnuts cut the sweetness and the chocolate is more semi-sweet than milk chocolate. The hazelnut flavor does not overpower, but it is equal to the typical Milk Stout flavors. Mouthfeel is rich. Not quite as smooth as most milk stouts but the lactose/malt combination is still pretty smooth, even with a strong nutty/slightly bitter addition. Good stout!!!!

Poured a black body with almost no head and the aroma is basically nutty and boozy with some sweetness underneath. Overall, this reminds me a little of hazelnut liquer in that you get sweetness from vanilla/booze (and for the beer some chocolate) but mostly a nutty flavor with a bit of a dry, heated finish. Not bad but definitely not for everyone.

Draft at Victor's in York, PA. Pours a very dark opaque blackish-brown with a nice tan head. Initial impression is roasted malts, milk chocolate, roasted nuts, and maybe a hint of vanilla. Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Finish is smooth and slightly sweet. Excellent Stout!

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Frothy and rich cascading mocha to tan dark head. Easily making three fingers tall of swiss cheese bubbly head, and settling slowly. Very dark body, nearly black, with touches of red and very opaque. Good aggressive looking stout.

Delicious aroma. Big rich whiffs of nut an tannic skin. Small hints of char with a big husky roast backbone it seems. Sweetness is very non apparent, which is a big plus for me in this style. Bold large but not overboard, even the chocolate angle is considerably muted, but shows classic dark bitterness. Good stuff so far.

Excellent palate. Creamy sensing, but with classic light body milk qualities. Small touches of lactose sweetness, but a bigger nutty hazelnut and roast character that coats on first sip. Touches even a little bit of cola like body, but more nut and cream qualites pull out a rich waffer/vanilla and Whoppers like malt candy. Real nice bitter char finish, bringing some edge to the beer with flavors of light charcoal and classic dark roasted malt.

This is a milk stout I can really get into. Great job on this one.
