12oz can, date stamped 12/04/17. Dark chocolate colored ale with a creamy tan head that dissipates to nothing rather quickly. Aromas of fresh roasted barley, dark chocolate, creamed dark roast coffee fill the nose. Cocoa, cream, roasted barley, coffee, faint tobacco, and earthy hop notes for flavor. Full & velvety smooth body, but it has lower carbonation, sweet yet well balanced finish. Overall, it needs some aspects cleaned up a bit, was was still enjoyable.

This beer claims it's dark sweet and silky and the only thing that's true is it's dark. it's a sour bitter beer with a long miserable finish and I don't think I would buy it again way too many sour bitter hops to fit the stout profile

On tap. Pours an oil black color with a small head that leaves no lacing. Nose of roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and ash. Medium body and medium-light carbonation.
There's enough bulk in the body to get the feel right, but it's missing sweetness. There's an ashiness/burntness to it that I've never had before in a milk stout. I had higher expectations for it.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 12/18/2017. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, cream, and toasted dark bread; with light notes of nuttiness, vanilla, smoke, char, licorice, molasses, dark fruit, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, cream, and toasted dark bread; with light notes of nuttiness, vanilla, smoke, char, licorice, molasses, dark fruit, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, cream, toasted dark bread, light smoke/dark fruit, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance; and zero cloying/acrid flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from hop/roast bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is good. On the thin side on body, but not too bad. Zero warming alcohol for 6.1%. Overall this is a very good milk stout. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Solid richness for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example.

Taste like sour milk. Worst beer ever. It's more sour than a sour. If you like the idea of sour stouts then this beer is for you.

Pours dark brown with a heavy tan head, with heavy lacing. Smell is coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal. Taste is the same. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly watered down. Overall, not bad, but better milk stouts out there.

On tap. Poured a opaque, black hue with a small, light brown head of foam. It smelled of chocolate, toffee and caramel. Sweet tasting with milk chocolate and toffee flavors.

Moonjumper has a very thick, tan head, a dark brown appearance, with lighter brown highlights, and heavy glass lacing. The aroma is of rich, sweet cream & coffee, dark-roasted malt, some chocolate, and a touch of char. Taste is of acrid bitterness, dark malt, and lots of tap water. Mouthfeel is lower medium and a little slick, and Moonjumper finishes medium dry.
