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.

This brew is utterly dark, with a thick tan head. The aroma is roasty and grainy, with a slightly cardboard scent. Just okay. The body, though is full, velvety, and satisfying. Balanced and cocoa like aroma. Good, but not great.

Big dry cocoa aroma with touches of toffee. Smooth body with more chocolate and then roast rolling into the back of the flavor. Medium bodied and overall a fine example of a milk stout.

The beat says its a working class milk stout and it delivers, you will feel like a real man! :) Its got a bit pf a hops punch in the beginning then a smooth wonderful stout flavor after that. Some serious complex bouquet of flavors.
