A great and refreshing take on the style. Very dark brown with a medium brown head. Notes of milk chocolate and espresso are supported by an array of roasted malts. The palate is rich and rewarding but still light and not at all fatiguing. While the can says "luscious", this is squarely on the lighter, drier side of milk stouts. Overall extremely enjoyable, alone or with food. [12/18 can into snifter]

Can poured into a snifter. Also had on tap recently.

Pours dark, brown, lets some light pass through the sides. Creamy tan head.

Aroma is bittersweet cocoa, dark chocolate and roasty malt and coffee.

Flavor is smooth and clean. Roasted malts, coffee and bitter baking chocolate. Sweetness balances the bitter aspects nicely.

Soft, a bit light bodied, moderate carbonation.

Nice and smooth. Easy drinking and lots of flavor at this ABV.

This was poured into a nonic. The appearance was a glossy black color with a three finger off white foamy head that dissipates pretty quick. Spider web lacing. The aroma has some milk/sweet stout qualities but actually allows a nice balancing roastiness to it. Chocolate nibs seem there bringing in that semi-sweet to bitter quality rounding it all out. The flavor balances extremely nice between the roast and the bitter and the sweet. That lactose is there but doesn’t come across overly sweet. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sipping quality about it. Mild carbonation. Roastiness seems to slide over my tongue. Overall, an extremely nicely balanced milk/sweet stout that delegates a subtle slickness not usually found in this style.

Poured from a 16 oz can.

Pours a near pitch black color with a solid 3 fingers of mocha head. The had is gone quickly, leaving a nice ring of lace before settling into a halo around the glass.

The aroma brings notes of dark roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Standard for the style but pleasant.

The taste starts off with sweet chocolate and cream, and is followed by bitter, roasted coffee. The finish is slightly earthy with a subtle kiss of hops.

The feel is a bit light and watery for the style. Has moderate carbonation. Very dry and clean finish.

Overall, a very good milk stout that is nicely balanced and flavorful. With a fuller, more creamy body this would be even better.

Pours jet black with a thick creamy deep beige head atop,no light getting thru here.Baker's chocolate and coffee roast stand out most in the nose,I get a bit of caramel as it warms as well.The feel was not quite as creamy as was expecting of the style but it's depth was good.Roasty on the palate upfront with that baker's chocolate melding nicely,the palate never gets overly sweet.It's one of the dryer earthy milk stouts I have had,a nice 'different' take on the style here.

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

Look: Typical near-opaque stout with decent foam, moderate head retention. If you hold it up to a strong light it has very good clarity.

Smell: Lots of coffee and some sweet malt. Chocolate comes in as it warms. Coffee and chocolate are clean with no burnt aroma.

Taste: A good bit of roast/coffee up front, giving way to a wonderful clean malt character that is almost German. Chocolate comes in at the end. Very clean finish with gentle bitterness.

Feel: Medium body and carbonation that showcases all the good flavors. None of the astringency or metallic notes that some stouts display.

Overall: Just an all-around enjoyable beer. Nothing over the top, hits all the right notes without getting loud. Like First Drop, this beer punches well above its weight.

16 the oz can

Pours jet black, tan head retains as lacing.

Smells of coffee, cocoa, toast and roasted nuts.

Flavor of cocoa, coffee, mesquite and walnut. Smokey finish.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Pretty exceptionally good, really worth trying. I wasn't expecting this to be this good.

Was fortunate to be gifted a pint can of this from my daughter, who also liked this brew, from her recent trip to Vermont. A sweet, coffee rich, milk stout so black it does not pass light easily with a thick full head of foam. Perhaps not enough to make me want to move north of PA, but good enough to make me want to visit.
