Dark brown body, coarse off-white head, some legs of lace. Smell is roasted malt, mild chocolate and coffee, some sweetness but not really the creamy kind. The flavor starts off well with chocolate and roasted malt, but from mid palate to the end is a distasteful bitterness, something like a bitter herb or dust. Mint and earth perhaps? Either way, the finish cannot end soon enough. Body is light, slightly oily, somewhat sharp carbonation.
It's difficult to mess up a milk stout, what with delicious creamy lactose sugar there to make it instantly appealing and cover up flaws or lack of other character. I suppose I should commend ST for going against the easy norm, but I can't say I enjoy this deviation.

Good and dark. Not a lot of stout aroma but did smell the alcohol. The taste was very good though. With nice maltyness and some oats, and even a little oaky. Would definitely get some more.

Not as bad as some reviews say but I was expecting more. Definitely light on the mouthfeel. Seems oaky and woody to me both in smell and taste. Not as much coffee, toffee and sweetness that I've come to enjoy out of a milk stout.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, nearly black, with minimal dark brown head. Quite heavy carbonation for a stout. Notes of coffee and chocolate with a nice aftertaste (slightly smoky and very bitter).
