Pours a very deep brown bordering on black with a quarter inch of cappuccino colored head that has great retention. The nose has notes of roasted malts, faint coffee, and a sugary sweetness. The taste is heavy roasted malt with very faint coffee and chocolate undertones. The lactose adds a mellow, sugary sweetness to the finish. There is just a slight bitterness in the finish. There is an underlying buttery note that is a little off putting. It's medium to full bodied, rich, smooth, and it has just the right amount of carbonation.

This is decent milk stout. It's definitely the best among the 4 beers that came in the mix 12-pack. The only flaw in my opinion is the creamy, buttery note in the finish. Everything else to me was fantastic.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Deep brown, completely opaque, with a thin tan head that doesn't stick around long.

S: Sweet milk/creamer smell, not much else here.

T: Very sweet, almost as if I'm drinking a Guinness with creamer added, but oddly in a good way. This is definitely sweet though, I couldn't handle more than one in a sitting.

M: Almost light, with not much carbonation.

O: I don't know how fresh this was, thanks for the no bottled date, but I would like to try this fresh if I got the chance. There's too much I think missing from this due to it being potentially a bit old.

Appearance- black as coal with a darker edge of more blackness.
Smell. Butterscotch. Yes it smell great.
Taste is buttery with spice and bourbon rolling through.
Feel. Well it is high in carbon and hits me in the chest but it is alright. Lively on the tongue.
Overall. I really like this beer. It is just what i needed today.
Ihavebeen excited to try this beer. We just don't see it in Boise
