Pint nitro tap at One-eyed Betty's.

A - Black as a starless night with more than an inch of lacey tan foam that lingers on the glass.

S - Malty sweet with prominent lactose-milk character, but somewhat subdued.

T - Incredibly smooth chocolate with next to no bitterness.

M - Silky smooth with lingering sweetness.

O - Best milk stout I've had bar none. You owe it to yourself to taste this on a nitro tap.

A - Pours nearly pitch black with a two finger mocha head that doesn't seem to go away. Surprisingly, leaves no lacin.

S - Pretty much all lightly roasted malt up front along with a little bit of lactose and sweet malts.

T - Lightly roasted malt and lactose are pretty much the whole flavor. It is quite watery as well.

M - Light, watery, creamy body with almost no carbonation.

O - Overall, this is pretty much a Guiness Draught with a bit more creaminess. It's sessionable, But very lacking.
