I recently had the nitro version of this which was much smoother and creamier. but this is a good stout none the less!
Pours black. as a stout should. the smell seems muffled a little but still makes your mouth water.
its not an overbearing taste. good drinkable stout.

Bought in a pick 6 from Central Market.
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
(Review from notes)

A - Pours pitch black with a tan head. Thick finger of foam, nice head that stays throughout.

S - Chocolate malt, lightly roasted.

T - Not bitter, very lightly roasted malt and chocolate. Tastes just like it smells.

M - Smooth. Light, almost watery, but a bit thicker.

Summary - Pretty great. Sweet, easy to drink. Chocolate malt melted-down. No carbonation. This and Lakewood's Temptress are my favorite milk stouts.
