Deep brown colour, more than one finger of creamy tan head, lots of lace all the way down the glass. Smell is roasted with a big helping of chocolate and coffee, light milky-creamy scents, bittersweet. Taste follows the nose roasty with milk chocolate, lactic flavours, coffee grinds with a moderate bitterness, only lightly sweet. Super smooth feel, light carbonation, very creamy. Solid milk stout and on nitro this went down super quickly, great drinkability.

milk stout brewe, likely only this once, for moustache themed charity event for men’s health, at WVRST tap takeover. Lactose. OK coffee taste. Serviceable milk stout.OK mouthfeel. Hoh hum, cold coffee with some milk. There are a few good milk stouts.

Project X bottle. 5 abv

Pours black with a thin dark brown head. Nose is creamy, light cocoa, roasted malt and hints of chocolate. Taste is thinner than expected; lactose, milkish, not much in the way of a body of a stout. Thin notes of cocoa and mild chocolate malt. Mouthfeel is average, lighter bodied perhaps due to the abv.
Overall the taste profile didn't live up to its expectations for me. A decent beer but not something I'd reach for again, unless draught just to see if its different on tap.
