On nitro at Old Chicago- Lakewood. Wowzers! Well deserving of its reputation. Slick and smooth , creamy and velvety. Beautiful roasty notes throughout, made slick and creamy by the lacto. Perfecto!

I actually enjoyed this one more than the nitro version I sampled on tap. Dark black color, great head and lingering lacing. Smells of dark rich roast coffee with just a hint of chocolate. Tastes of dark coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and malt with a little biscuit and brown sugar. Moderate mouthfeel, slightly creamy, nice amount of carbonation and smooth aftertaste without bitterness. Very tasty and easy to drink, not overly sweet at all.

12oz bottle bb 10/5/18 poured into a tulip pint glass at fridge temp 6% ABV. The beer pours dense very dark brown with light brown head. The head is minimal and recedes to a film quickly. There is hardly any lacing. The aroma is a mix of roast malt and semisweet chocolate. The taste is mostly semisweet chocolate up front with a roasty bitterness showing up promptly to lend balance. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lowly carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. The lactose adds a touch of sweetness that keeps it from being totally dry. Overall, good. This is a pleasant enough example of an unadorned milk stout.
