Wow. Rivals Left Hand's Milk Stout (never thought I'd say that) IMO. Silky smooth with no off flavors. A bit of a sticky, roasty aftertaste (good thing). Lingering sweetness and then a clean finish. I am shocked at the low ratings below.

This one pours a midnight black that is virtually impenetrable to light. The head is shallow, short lived and leaves spots instead of lacing down the glass.

The nose is rich bitter-sweet chocolate, vanilla, grass, cereal, bread, all spice, hops and smokey malt.

The taste is very nice and bitter but falls off very quickly to a smooth and clean finish that then resumes the bitterness at the rear of the palate after the quaff is over. There is sweetness left on the lips while there is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and pepper.

The mouthfeel is adequate bordering on a little to watery. But this does not take away from the overall experience. I just expect more richness to a stout.

Overall this is a rather drinkable and enjoyable milk stout. A lot more bitter than most but still very good overall. A hop heads milk stout.

A - Pours black with a rich tan head. Decent retention and moderate lacing.

S - Toasted marshmallow and sweet milk chocolate create a soothing and enticing aroma. Roasted aromas are smooth and sweet.

T - Plenty of sweetness from the lactose sugar, but far from cloying thanks to suble hop bitterness and hints of coffee. Overall a very well-balanced and flavorful stout.

M - Full bodied with a creamy finish. This heavy beer is made very palatable by ample carbonation.

O - This was a real treat, and I'm very glad that I had a chance to try it. It's one of the best examples of the style that I've had.

On tap at the Whip In during the RateBeer Winter Gathering.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a beige head. The aroma is very full with a lot of chocolate and roasted malt notes. There is also some sweetness which I guess is from the lactose. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, along with a touch of coffee. The beer is fairly sweet overall. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice milk stout.
