I expect more sweetness in milk stout. This is more dunkel like.

Poured from 12oz bottle into stout glass. No dating information found.
Dark brown colored body, with brown backlit highlights. Half a finger of creamy tan head sticks around. Each sip leaves behind a widely dispersed pattern of lacing.
Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a touch of vanilla.
Taste of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Provides a little sting to the tongue but no bitterness.
Medium to full, smooth mouth feel. Okay carbonation.
Very tasty milk stout that brings a smoothness and avoids any sour bitterness.

Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours nearly black with a frothy tawny brown head that settles to a light layer and laces well.

S: Roasty, toasty, slightly nutty, chocolate, cocoa powder, hints of coffee, slightly earthy, with some lactose and toffee sweetness.

T: Smooth roasted malt, chocolate, hints of coffee, earthy, slightly nutty, faint herbal notes, sweet cream, and a little toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, mild carbonation, creamy smooth.

O: One of the best milk stouts around. As much as I love the nitro version, the standard is just as good.

Perfect beer as we approach the holidays! Goes down very smooth and is one of the best Milk Stouts out there on the market. Like it better than the Nitro Stout!

Great colour and head on the pour. So smooth and great nutty/coffee flavour notes. This stout has an amazing flavour that goes down easy.
