4 pack in pint cans. Poured a dark brown, black color. Smelled hints of espresso and chocolate. Tasted with same nods, possibility a little vanilla. Very creamy and enjoyable.

Very dark brown with a light caramel head on top. Smells very sweet, hints of chocolate. Can taste the roasted malts with sugar added to it. Very creamy.

Bought a 4 pack of pint cans.

Look: very dark brown, a little bit of tan head
Smell: espresso, milky chocolate, roasted malt
Taste: espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt, hint of vanilla. a subtle bitter undertone as well. very good.
Feel: medium to full body (a little on the light side for a stout), lightly carbonated, smooth

Overall: a more complex beer than I was expecting. All the parts of this beer complement each other very well.

On tap

A - Beer arrived at the table with a very thin head that is off white in color and dissipates to a very thin lacing very quickly. The beer itself is black and opaque in color with a reddish golden ring around the very edges of the bottom of the glass. No carbonation is visible in the beer. 3.5/5

S - Very dark and deep with notes of espresso, vanilla, dark chocolate, molasses, with a milky sweetness underlying all of this. Dark roasted malt and heavy on the nose. Very deep and appealing. 3.75/5

T - Espresso, vanilla, and dark roasted malt all come out together at the very front of the beer. This beer is surprisingly bitter and only somewhat sweet, which is not what I expected in the slightest. There is some lactic, milky flavor that acts as an undertone along with dark chocolate. Herbal hops begin to come out in the final third of the flavor with a light bitterness that lingers somewhat. 4.25/5

M - Full bodied and heavy with a light carbonation tickle up front that lead into a slightly creamy mouthfeel for the remainder of the sip. No drying and the beer disappears from the palate quickly after swallowing. 4/5

O - Unexpected is not necessarily a bad thing. That is what I mostly take away from this beer due to the unexpected bitterness when I was really expected a deep, dark, sweet beer. The bitterness is not overwhelming or unpleasant in the slightest, it was just unexpected. The milk shake flavors are still there along with some espresso and vanilla, creating an interesting, and entirely different, experience than the normal milk shake stout. 3.75/5
