Pours pitch black, impervious to light. Two fingers of head slowly recedes. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, some milk chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts, some chocolate, fairly creamy. Pretty light bodied, carbonation adds to the creamy mouthfeel. Overall a pleasant milk stout, not too heavy.

Deep dark color. It has a watery feel, but not a watered down taste. Nice and Malty and almost chocolately.

Wish I could find this beer locally got it at vintage estate in Ohio. Great Aroma and flavor is a very rich milk chocolate and coffee roasts perfectly balanced. Downright sessionable if I had more than one can. Will be seeking out more if I ever go back to Ohio

Great stout. Malty and chocolate. Well balanced. This is one of the best craft stouts I've ever had. Great smell, smooth mouth feel. Perfect viscosity just a great beer.

Poured from a 12oz can. Into a 10oz tulip glass

L - Poured with 1 finger of head which quickly went away to a small ring around the glass. Opaque black. Head was tan before it subsided.

S - upfront is roast. Followed by subtle coffee, milk chocolate and a tiny bit of vanilla.

T - roast, little coffee. Dark chocolate at the back end.

F - a little thin for me. Flavor quickly leaves the mouth. Thin to medium thin mouth feel.

O - not bad. Not the best. Definitely a solid beer. Good milk stout. Average I would say.

Pours a dark brown, with a large khaki head. The head quickly dies off too a thin ring, and the brew leaves little lacing behind. I get a lot of roast, chocolate, caramel, and hints of coffee. There is a grassy sweetness that lingers in the background, tinting everything with it's presence. On to the flavors, and wow, am I a fan. Though the lactose makes the beer a sweet one overall, there is a lot of bitter roast here, and right up front. After the initial wave of malt, I get chocolate, more caramel, and a distinct milk like flavor. The after taste is sweet, but also slightly bitter, with the coffee notes finally showing itself, along with more of the malt and chocolate. The feel of the stout is medium. It feels like the lactose is adding a lot of thickness to what would have been a rather thin stout. Carbonation is there at a similarly medium value making for a very drinkable stout. It's good for a sweet tooth, and I'd say good for everyday, even if it's a bit sweet.

Hard pour from can into a pub glass. Nice tan head that doesn't stick around too long but leaves behind some lacing. Trying to find a nose here, but nothing much. Taste of coffee and cocoa but not as bold as the can says. Mouthfeel is prett smooth but very thin. Overall, not a terrible milk stout but not the best. I am left wanting more body, aroma...just more.

North High is one of the better brewers in Columbus. This is a nice little stout that mostly works.

It opens black but doesn't build much head without a vigorous pour, and the head quickly dies. The aroma is a bit funky skunky.

The taste is a mild, balanced stout. It has a nice creamy but thin mouth feel. The aftertaste is mildly bitter but generally clean - a nice aftertaste.

I generally like bigger stouts. This one would be OK when you already had too many! Not recommended.

I bought a can of the North High Milk Stout at Andersons in Reynoldsburg, OH. It poured an opaque black with tan head that is not leaving any lace. The scent is milk chocolate and some roast. The taste is nicely balanced with sweet mat and hints of roast. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a very good beer and definitely worth a try.

12 ounce can
Served in a becker glass

This beer pours black and is topped with an inch of mocha head that leaves some nice lacing.

I get some dark chocolate aroma.

The taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a little black coffee in the finish.

Full mouthfeel

I don't really got a lot of sweetness as I have in other milk stouts. It is pretty good.

Picked up a single can of this from one of my favorite local shops I go to buy craft beers from. Got a single 12 oz. can for a total of $2.07. Poured into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a very dark, practically black, color with a silky looking, tan head that's about an inch thick when first poured. The head fades pretty quickly indeed to a fairly thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with some big, thin, cluster swirls of foam on the beer's surface. Not much lacing here either. Has strong aromas of roasted, caramel malt sweetness along with a nice cocoa smell too. It tastes pretty much like it smells, which is a wonderful thing in this case, with roasted caramel malt sweetness followed by a nice cocoa sweetness and certainly some mil sugars that help to give this beer a nice lactate like quality indeed. Not really any discernible hop flavor here, and that's okay I think. Flavor profile wise, this is one of the best beers of this style I've had in quite along time! Has a slightly crisp and even slightly prickly, mainly smooth and fairly creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink in the good was well crafted beer ought to be. I quite enjoyed this one.
