Had this on my want list on Beer Advocate and was excited to get to try it on my first trip to the area. Decided that I was going to have two of the three big boozy beers at WOB (3 Floyd’s Moloko and Clown Shoes Billionaire), only missing out on Dark Horse’s Plead the 5th. Had high hopes as I’m a big fan of the style.

Poured a pitch black color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki tan, rocky head. Excellent lacing. Good retention. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled toffee, roasty malts, caramel, mocha, chocolate milk, vanilla and Mud Slide. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted roasty malts, mocha, white chocolate, Mud Slide, slight smoky fire, toasted toffee, chocolate milk, a touch of cocoa and roasty nuts. (Taste - 4.00)

Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, roasty finish. (Feel - 4.25)

Just a very nice milk stout. Would have it again and would like to try the barrel-aged version. (Overall - 4.00)

Poured dark black with a thin tan head that disappears rather quickly. Gimme more head on my stouts!

Smell was a nice blend of roasted malts, sweet lactose and a hint of chocolate.

Taste followed that with a nice blend of flavors including roasted malts, milk chocolate, sweet lactose, and a touch of milk.

Feel was smooth and drinkable. Medium carbonation.

Overall a very good milk stout. But in bombers its not something Ill ever pick up again.

A - dark brown / black beer with a mocha head that dissipates quick and therefore doesn't leave much lacing
S - dark malts, roasty marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla, whole milk
T - same as smell, dark malts, roasty/burnt marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla, whole milk
M - thick, alc covered, aftertaste is roasted malts, dark chocolate
O - it's good, probably wouldn't buy again given all the good stuff there is out there

Black pour, tan head 3/5" that doesn't hold itself too well. Aroma hit some anise notes, milder lactose.

Taste, much better, smooth, no licorice, good flow. Almost oatmeal like with its smoothness. Even though 8%, it doesn't drink like a big ass stout. Chocolate is mild, yet appropriate.

This one was enjoyable for sure, but again, the format keeps it from being a repeat purchase. If it was $10/4 pack, sure, no problem.
