12 oz. Bottle

Pours a pretty nice brown color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small light tan head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, chocolate/toffee, vanilla. The taste is malt, chocolate/toffee, vanilla. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

The beer is espresso bean black with barely the faintest of brown hue on the edges. A nice foamy, frothy mocha head settles to a wisp of bubbles with a ring around the edges. A sort of wet, webbed lacing clings to the sides of the glass before disappearing.

The aroma is really pure and sweet, loads of sweet milky cocoa powder, but balanced out on the back end with bitter coffee.

This is probably the sweetest milk stout I’ve ever experienced. My taste buds are immediately coated with a sugary milkiness. It has a faint, saccharine-packet burn on the throat, not unlike that feeling I get when i eat a fudge brownie. Underneath the milkiness, I get bitter chocolate ultimately filling out the profile. The finish is slightly hoppy and dry, giving this beer a good balance from the sweetness.

The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied, sweet, and slightly dry.

This beer is extremely, extremely sweet. Loads of milky, sugary overload. Almost too sweet ...

Poured from a brown 12oz bottle in a pick-your-sixer from the local liquor store.

A - The beer pours a deep brown almost black color with an offwhite creamy head. Not much retention but a fair amount of lacing.

S - An average blend of dark roasted malts: chocolate, dark caramel, licorice, and a sloght fruity aroma. I wish there was more character here though, very very subtle.

T - The beer starts very smooth. A nice malty, creamy, dark roasted grain flavor on the palette imediately. The middle of the beer brings a mild bitterness and a nice creamy nature. The beer finishes clean and smooth.

M - Silky smooth, medium bodied with good carbonation.

D - Good drinkability.

Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. I would buy it again and recommend. Nothing spectacular but solid.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.
