Poured from bottle into a Snifter glass.

Pours a very dark brown, nearly black color with a moderate sized chocolatey brown head. Decent retention. Leaves nothing but a very thin ring of lacing around the edge.

Aroma is dominated by chocolate. A hint of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee comes through upon agitation. Not enough going on here, either in terms of variety of strength.

Taste does this beer a bit better. The sweet, milky chocolate make themselves known from the get-go. The back end reveals some slightly more matured roasted coffee and chocolate malts. A bit of smokiness provides an excellent touch, very well done.

Medium bodied. Thin for a stout. Carbonation is way too high; it actually takes away from the taste due to its strength. Just too much carbonation for a beer like this. Tastes a bit watered down.

Overall, a decent milk stout here. Its a very good intro to the style if you're not sure what you're getting into, but don't want to try Left Hand Milk Stout. If you're a fan of the brewery, give it a try.
