look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Poured hard into a pint glass as the bottle label suggests, what came out was a coffee black with perfect tan head with tons of lacing. Great looking beer, looks appealing and delicious.

Smell: I loved the smell of this beer, its a great mix between the lactose-y smell of milk combined with dry roasted malts with hints coffee beans. A wonderful combination.

Taste: Doesn't quite taste like the typical stout as it is not harsh or bitter. It is very creamy and aftertaste reminds me very much of roasted coffee with whole milk. It settles down easy but heavy enough to to filling.

Mouthfeel: It is like drinking milk! Very thin body, doesn't linger in the mouth for too long until it is down the hatch.

Overall: Definitely a pleasant drink, could picture myself drinking many more of this. It looks great, smell is welcoming, and tastes amazing. One of my favorite milk stouts for sure.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a New Belgium tulip

Appearance: black with a mocha head that dissipated very quickly

Smell: Mmmmm. That's nice. Heavy mocha. Coffee and cream. It smells as if it is going to taste sweet.

Taste: Rushes over your tongue with a wave of sweetness. When that dissipates you get some chocolate that turns into a coffee bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Very round. Has the weight and consistency of skim milk. Very little carbonation on the mouthfeel.

Overall: Pretty solid stout. I thought the flavors were a little underwhelming. But then again I haven't had a normal strength stout in awhile. I would definitely recommend.
