Got this at my local WoB, from the tap, not bad at all...

Killing some time while waiting for my wife and her friend to finish watching a movie, I stopped in at the local and nearby WoB to catch the end of this year's (2019) Daytona 500. As I catched the tail end of the race (and the multiple crashes - even got to to see the 'Big One') I decided to choose something new and different - so this was it.

In the pint it was beautifully dark with a nice foamy head, decent lacing halfway down the glass. The smell was unremarkable as the mouthfeel was a bit mixed - though I liked how low on carbonation it presented itself, I was a bit disappointed with the water texture from top to bottom. Taste was nutty, malty, and they both worked together beautifully. Overall, I was happily surprised - most time I usually pick something that I wish I hadn't, but this time it all worked out relatively well.

Fair amount of lactose sweetness, faint roasted malt, medium mouthfeel. It's an okay milk stout but nothing to write home about. Cheers! B-

It’s a better Guinness in my mind. It’s the smoothest sour beer I’ve tried. The smell is sensational. It’s more steamed milk and chocolate than coffee aroma. Had it between two rounds of golf and became a fan.

A thinner stout, almost has a smokey burnt coffee taste. Not the best but it does grow on you as the maltiness seems to show up late.

Taste rating in words: It's that friend of a friend that shows up late for the party.

Roasty malt, lactose sweetness, bitter cacao, chocolate, burnt coffee, sweet dark fruit, kind of thin

Overall a good beer but with other milk stouts out there I wouldn't go out of my way to get again

Pours dark brown with a thin tan cap after a vigorous pour that disappeared immediately and leaves no lacing. The aroma Is dark roasted smoky malts. Flavor has a hint of chocolate and lactose that join the fore mentioned malt. Feel is thin. Overall just okay.
