Very dark no head. Hint of licorice caramel and chocolate malts. Not my favorite. Pours very creamy and thick. Worth a try but there's much better milk stouts out there

Poured into Speiglau stout glass.

Pitch black with cola highlights at the edges. Thin to no head.

Roasty astringent aroma.

Taste is thin and harsh with a roasty note to balance it out. Comes out with a little milk and coffee.

The beer comes in a black color with 2 finger thick head of medium plus sized bubbles.

The aroma offers sweet licorice, roasted malt, lactose sweetness, underlying cocoa, milk chocolate, roasted malt, cream.

The flavor follows with spicy licorice, roasted malts, milk chocolate, prickly carbonation, medium minus mouthfeel, whole milk and half and half, with an awkward, leaning towards spoiled finish.

Poured from draft into a clear plastic cup.

LOOK: Pitch black with a small tan head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

SMELL: Chocolate, cream, coffee, milk, and brown sugar.

TASTE: Milk chocolate candy, cream and sugar, coffee, and a hint of earthy hops.

FEEL: Light, but approaching medium. Super creamy. Lightly carbonated.

OVERALL: Excellent milk stout. Sweet and light but super drinkable. Very much like Left Hand Milk Stout. I would highly recommend it to any milk stout fan!
