A - Dark brown, mostly opaque, with slight transparency on the edge. Light tan head, some mild lacing.

S - Roasted malts, toast, a bit of coffee acridity.

T - Follows the nose, with a slight floral note and a bigger roast coffee note on the close. There is also a moderate milk sugar sweetness that floats in the background throughout.

M - A bit light for the style. No sign of the ABV. Mild carbonation and slight drying on the close prevent any cloying weight.

O - The elements for a great stout are all here. The main issue here is that the acridity is dialed a bit forward, the sweetness a bit too far back, and the end result is a beer not quite as good as the sum of its parts.

Had the nitro version, on tap. Alcohol very present in the nose with the toasted malt and sweetness. Standard milk sweetness in the taste, and a little lighter bodied than expected.

Honestly should be a lower ABV beer like most other milk stouts, leaves an alcohol taste, not bad, but not what I want from a sweet stout, other than that good beer, not great but not bad

Pours a nice black color, shows some brown on the edges when held up to the light.
Nice aromas of roasted malts and little hops on the end. Makes my mouth water!
Has that great chocolate milk taste with a nice bitter hoppiness on the end.
Super easy to drink and a really tasty beer!
