Single bottle from Merchant's Fine Wine in Dearborn, MI.

Poured into a tulip glass. A thick, nearly black brew, with a lovely tan-cream head that indeed looks like it came from a nitro pour. Very sturdy creamy head, great retention, and sheets of sticky lacing. Very good looking brew indeed.

Nose is quite pleasant, and right in line for the style: mild roasted grain, chocolate, coffee, cream, lactose.

Tasty milk stout, a style that tends not to be overly complex, but is nevertheless always welcome in my glass. Similar tasting notes as in the nose, with a subtle pine hop finish, which balances nicely with the lactose and chocolate sweetness of the entry.

Thinner bodied, a bit watery, but with a nice creaminess to the mouthfeel.

I enjoyed this a great deal - nothing out of the ordinary, but a well-made milk stout indeed.

Very thick and creamy taste but not too much. Almost a bitter taste but yet very sweet and enjoyable. Definitely a winter type stout that's good for the snowed in folk. I tried this out of a 6 pack in whidbey island, wa from the beer works. Highly recommend trying this stout if your a fan of thicker beers. Definitely one to try.
