Pours jet black, mocha head dissipates quickly. Smells of milk chocolate, subtle coffee notes. Tastes like chocolate syrup, some caramel and vanilla. Mouth feel is thick, slight carb balances it. This beer seems like a great one to sip and enjoy, not too strong to tank your pallet or limit you to one can in a night.

Thanks to FFFjunkie for this one. Poured into a snifter. Viscous motor oil on the pour with a modest tan head. Chocolate and floral hops on the nose, like an RIS. Big, sticky sweet beer with heavy milk chocolate and roast. A nice floral hop bitterness to balance it, adding to the bitter chocolate. A bit sweet and full bodied as expected. Very nice.

A 1 pint can, canned on 20th December 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger creamy brown head that had ok retention but no lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate and cocoa with hints of vanilla and nuttiness.

Taste: Similar to the aroma with roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, vanilla and caramel with a light char. Also a nice light sweetness throughout.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall: Very nice Double Milk Stout with great flavours that wasn’t overly sweet.

16oz can dated 10/04/17 poured into a becker boasts a solid, almost purple tinged, black body and floats a 1in milk chocolatey medium bubbled foam cap that dwindles to a constant cover. A spotted lacing runs back down to the body.

Aroma is chocolate, cocoa powder, and a little fresh air.

Flavors match. Roast malt, barely a hint of coffee (great), sweetness.

Mouthfeel is smooth and tongue coating-ly silky with a wet finish.

Overall a very good version of the style.

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass.

Looks fantastic, oily black body with a one finger dark brown head. Spotty lacing.

Aromas are roasty and charred, coffee and dark chocolate. On the tongue it’s also roasty with dark coffee and cocoa notes, lightly sweet with a burnt finish.
Velvety smooth body with low carbonation.

This was a great beer, id buy this regularly if available to me.

An inky black pour produced a one finger dark tan head with poor retention. The left no lacing the glass at it dissipated. The head is dense and creamy. The inky black beer is opaque, obviously.

Wow, a rich dark roasted malt aroma with sugar, milk, dark chocolate, espresso, burnt sugar, yeast, bready, earthy, wood, char, caramel, and molasses.

A vibrant dark roasted malt with loads of character for the initial taste. Additional flavors in the beer are dark chocolate, dark roasted malt, sugar, milk, burnt sugar, bready, earthy, wood, char, molasses, and caramel.

The mouthfeel of the beer is creamy, chewy, and velvety. The body of the beer is full, medium carbonation, and a long finish.

Flavors explode on the pallet giving the drinker an experience. I enjoyed drinking this beer. Thank you FFFJunkie for another awesome beer.

Poured into a 16 oz Troegs Snulip glass canned on 10/04/17. Pours as pretty as in gets, slick near pitch black, with a 2 plus finger sticky mocha head that leaves massive streaks of lace all over the place.

Smell is vanilla bean, cocoa nibs, coffee, leather, and toffee.

Taste follows a nice roastyness, dark chocolate, vanilla, dry coffee, toffee, and hints of new leather.

Mouthfeel is near large, moderate carbonation, maybe a tad dry, and excellent drinkability for its size.

Overall this is so darn tasty, a bit one dimensional but insanely drinkable and deliscious. Thanks jzeilinger for yet another winner!

A wonderful milk stout, with more heft, mouthfeel, and especially taste than others deliver. Brewed with cocoa nibs and lactose, neither get in the way of the beer's overall impression. Not sweet, exactly, and not boozy or over the top. If you don't like barrel aged or bourbon-inflected beers, this might be one of your new go-tos. We thought it was great. Cheers.
