12oz can poured into a pint glass. This is a really smooth milk stout with a good amount of sweetness, chocolate and roasted malt character. Overall, solid beer.

Dark brown to black, 1 finger head

Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts

Flavor is mostly carafe and roast barley with metallic hints here and there. Nice chocolatey finish.

Feel is medium bodied with a distinct dryness

I wouldn't try again probably

Pours black with a fizzy, thin caramel-colored head. Head retention is poor, with very little lacing left behind. Aroma is a mix of toasted and roasted malts with lactose. Very thin and uninspired aroma. The flavor profile feels thin, with notes of roasted and toasted malts, and lactose. Mouth feel is thin, although not very watery. Carbonation feels a bit harsh and abrasive. Overall, it's alright. It's a stock-standard, uninspired milk stout which keeps it from being incredibly fun to drink.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Dark brown color, lighter brown head, 1/2". Aroma was more roast than lactose.

Nice and smooth, the sweetness comes out more in the taste and mouthfeel than it did in the aroma. Still chewy, still roasty, but drinkable, not bitter or harsh. Good amount of chocolate separate from the sweetness.

One of ska's better beers. Enjoyable.
