12oz can poured into a pint, best by 5/13/17

A- pours a deep brown color with a fizzy khaki colored head that reduces to leave nothing behind

S- smells of cocoa nibs, milk chocolate, tootsie rolls and roasted malt

T- dark roasted malt with a hint of char up front, followed by plenty of chocolate sweetness; cocoa, milk chocolate and tootsie roll flavors follow the nose. Finishes with a milky sweetness and a linger of more chocolate

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a slick finish

O- loaded with flavor, given the abv, very good milk stout

Has a strong chocolate aroma and flavor that resembles a chocolate milk shake, but that is about all this beer has going for it. One dimensional and the body is not as creamy as I would of preferred for a milk stout.

To thin and carbonated for me, i like a nice rich creamy milk stout, this is not that.

Draft, a little colder than ideal.
Looks just like a nice milk stout should, nice slightly creamy mouthfeel. Not too thick on the tongue, think I'll have more than one.
