This was a bomber poured into a snifter.

A: 4.0 deep dark with a dark head and decent lacing
S: 5.0 this is what a stout should smell like, nice and chocolately and then dark malt
T: 5.0 very chocolately upfront and then followed by deliciously smooth roasted malts and a very slight hop finish
MF: 4.5 great carbonation, with a sexy, thick body
O: 4.5 great beer and I wish I could give it a 4.75 for overall. This is one of my favorite milk stouts.

Thanks to mklever42 for this one.

Poured from a 650ml. bottle.

Appearance: A really dense brown-black body with a thick and cascading ecru colored head. Lacing is a left a bit wanting though.

Smell: Cocoa, bit roasted mixed with milkiness.

Taste: Real good cocoa and chocolate. The chocolate is a nice mix of milky and dark. Tiny roasted flavor in the finish. Flavors carries all the way through.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium body with average carbonation. Very drinkable but lacks a bit of substance.

Overall: Delivers for the style though i have had better. It seemed to lack a little oomph but overall is a good pick.

Another brew sent by Cuzco as part of the Blind Beers BIF, this was poured into my Lost Abbey stemware.

Inky black, a starless night. The head is thin, light tan, and fizzy. It's gone within seconds.

Hmm. Soft smoke and a bunch of teriyaki. Big handfuls of anise, a bit of sweet cocoa.

The flavor pretty well mirrors the aroma. Anise and soy are here up front, along with a little dark chocolate and tangy prunes. The swallow brings sweet milk, cocoa and smoke. Lingering notes of smoky meat.

Body is medium-light, with moderate carbonation. Breaks into fizz as it moves about. Just a touch of alcohol heat.

This has been a want for a while. Glad I got the chance to try it without bias.

650 mL bottle with no bottle date *shakes fist at FFF*. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Black with transparency at the edges. No real head. Collar and an island of foam meandering about.

Smell - Buckets of lactose. Chocolate roasted malt. Just a touch of hop. Way too much lactose.

Taste - Lactose and lots of chocolate. Then more lactose. It's all lactose. A touch of bitter roast in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Really sweet. Not boozy. Not bitter. A little overcarbonated.

Overall - I don't love lactose stouts and this is way over the top. Too much carbonation too.

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

A - black with a short, off white head with decent retention

S - roasted malts, burnt sugar, faint coffee

T - roasted malts, lactose, burnt sugar, coffee, mild bitterness

M - medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth

This has a great flavor profile, tremendous balance, and great drinkability. It's rich, smooth, and complex. This is a great milk stout that is definitely worth trying.
