Very good beer and apparently vastly underrated and under appreciated. While this is not KBS, it is well crafted with solid flavors lent from bourbon barrel aging. Rich and malty with wonderful cocoa notes. I'm not a huge milk stout fan but will easily make exception for this crafted brew.

Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Roasted malt, raw cocoa, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with sweetness and some roast.

Had this on tap at Aubree's pizza in Grand Blanc Mi.
This could have been my meal..ha ha....

Had again from can 4 pack...... still same rating.
I think it a great milkshake stout... remember it a milkshake stout, it will be a little thin and not as heavy...oh just my opinion. Hell im lactose intolerant....uh oh

Pours (from a tall boy can) a nice dark black with a brown head that dissipates quickly. Smell is of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is similar, with a slightly thin mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Overall, solid if unspectacular stout. Don't really pick up creamy/milk feel or taste, but the can is about 6mos old.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a 12 ounce mug
Pours a thick dense 2.5 finger dark tan head, nearly jet black in color.
Smell is of roasted coffee and dark chocolate but I'm getting some tinny metallic smell in there as well, which is disappointing.
Taste is of deep chocolate fading quickly to metal and then to coffee, that metallic flavor irks me.
A rather full and creamy mouthfeel for a milder stout.
Overall impressive flavor for the abv and simplicity of ingredients but somewhat let down by the metal smell and flavor from the can.

Found this guy at Frankie V's in Grand Rapids, MI. Tasty, easy to drink stout. A little citrusy for my preference but quite good.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, smooth, with a foamy, light, fluffy, off-white head. Nose of rich chocolate, subtle bitter coffee, and creamy highlights. Flavors are rich and creamy chocolate forward, with subtle cream highlights, and subtle roasted coffee notes. Smooth, creamy body, with a subtle coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Smooth, velvety, creamy finish. Good beer.
