I could drink this beer all day. It tastes like a liquid chocolate bar. But not the kind of chocolate bar you eat as a kid that's all sugar and nondescript brown-tasting. This is a really good liquid chocolate bar from that expensive downtown boutique chocolatiere. The kind of place that you have to skip a mortgage payment to visit. Not cloyingly sweet. Silky smooth. But not super-rich so that you can't finish it. Yummy!

Very dark mahogany, thicker/darker in the center. Finger high head of sandy brown sits with a lightly bumpy frothyness to it. Slips away quickly to a thin skim and collaring. Lace coats the glass in moderate webby sheeting.

Aroma is clean, quick, and tangy. It seems to go from distant to fronting, it doesn't quite keep the same from wiff to wiff. But when it peaks its quite nice. Sweet barley flakes and tangy oats and a very mild milk chocolate is what makes up most of its keep.

Taste is just as quick if not quicker. It swooshes right down with a creamy ease that Is, alot like milk. No wonder the name. That said, it tends to be quite milky(or milk-like) with partial chocolateyness that mildly lays low and finely/delicately places itself across the palate. Finish gets a bit more things a happenin'. Slight roast, slight nuttyness, subdued barley sweetness, and a chocolate cake fluff all reside at the end making for a nice display. The chocolate sticks around awhile like I just dipped a chocolate chip cookie in milk.

Feel is a slick creamy milken body thats super fun to behold. Its not as stouty as it should be, its milky through and through with a refined chocolateyness thats actually fairly nice and begins to intice another glass full. Its seemingly light but moderately carbonated and bold within its creamy, somewhat fluffy texture.

I could handle a couple of these no prob. Drinkability is slippery and then some. A pretty darn nice Milk Stout in my book.

Old Review

Got this at World Market off 280 in Birmingham. 12oz bottle poured into a mug.

A: Came out a dark brown, not black. Allows some light through and had a decent foam head on it, a bit off white. Looks good.

S: Smells like chocolate, cream (milk) and coffee. Has a sweet character to it.

T: This beer is in fact sweet but it is good. Starts off with a bit of roasted malt that comes out. After the beer warms a bit, I get more of the cream and lactose. The finish is a slightly bitter coffee. Good tasting brew.

M: Very creamy but not too thick. It has some carbonation but nothing that takes away from the beer. Leaves a sweet milk taste in your mouth.

D: Very drinkable. Easy to put down a sixer of this without thinking about it. Highly recommend because this is a fine milk stout.

Received from my good buddy Nate while he was in Arizona. Thanks, man.

Served chilled in my Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance is good. Opaque with a nice firm, tan head that leaves sticky lacing on the glass.

Smell is good. Huge fragrance of burnt, roasted malts with a smoky presence in the back.

Taste is good. Once again, huge amount of smoked and roasted malts that finishes with a slight milk/dairy flavor. Good amount of sweetness in this beer as well.

Mouthfeel is above-average. Very milky in the mouth, finishing sweet and makes the mouth water. Spot on for the style.

Drinkability is above-average. One 12oz bottle is enough for me.

Overall:
Not a bad brew to drink once in a while but nothing to write home about either. I decent change of pace brew that I'd drink when i don't feel like getting pie-eyed.
