12 oz can. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet grainy lactic chocolate with a little roast and vinous fruit.

The flavor is sweet lactic acidic chocolate with some roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, an OK roasty acidic milk stout.

On tap at the brewery, September 2012. Looked nice, light black, decent head and retention paired with pretty lace. And then its all downhill from here. . .

Minimal lactose aroma, mild roast, just not sweet enough. Chocolate seems lacking.

Taste, everything that was lacking in the aroma, was lacking in taste as well. Far too bitter in the mouthfeel. This is supposed to be a little sweet, choclatey, smooth. Its really none of those things. Why is this so bitter? Did they use too many hops (something Wynkoop doesn't even do in their 'hoppy' beers)? Did they find some super expensive curdled cream? Whatthedillio?

The parts that need emphasis are lacking, the parts that are prominent, shouldn't be there. A nice beer to look at, but jeez, talk about getting away from style guidelines, and not for the better.

Had this stout @ the brew pub yesterday afternoon. it is the best stout since Guiness. In fact I prefer it to the Guinness in The US. It is a smooth & flaourful stout with very subtle undertones. The flavour was consistent all the way through my pint. Never bitter, always smooth . all in all an outstanding brew that will never disappoint. No I do not work for Wynkoop brewery in any way.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A fine stout. Poured an opaque black, with a thick, tan head, creamy from the nitro. Dark roasted malts in the aroma, dark chocolate and coffee, and likewise in the taste. Nothing out of the ordinary to speak of here, just a typically good stout all over. Heavy-medium body, smooth in the mouth, and quite drinkable.

Labeled can. Basic and clean label. Pours a dark brownish black, like a dark cola. Huge brown head that leaves thick frothy lacing. Slow dissipation.
Aromas of very light malt. Literally all that's there, no coffee, no sweetness. Just very neutral beer smell.

Taste starts watery, transitioning quickly to a really pleasant sweet stout. Barely roasted flavor, mostly light caramel and sweet cream. Exceptionally smooth, with a faint bitterness throughout that lingers in the background very lightly.

Super light bodied, smooth and creamy. Very drinkable.

Lack of aroma but otherwise a really good English style stout with creamy lactose. Price for 4 cans is very off putting though. 11 bucks? At least make it a 6 pack
