Taste This is a rich and enjoyable beer.  It has all the marks that you want in a milk stout.  The spices used are not overdone but just give you a little nudge in the direction of Christmas.  It is a strong beer at 9.2% but it holds up well.  This is a nice sipper as the day’s end sooner and become more crisp.
Taste Rating 40 out of 40
Mouthfeel This beer has a great mouth feel.  It is sweet and milky.
Mouthfeel Rating 10 out of 10
Overall Top notch beer.  It is hard to put down a lot of these beers because of the calorie content.  This one is smooth and has a nice warming effect.  It is perfect for a near winter and beyond evening.
Overall Rating 20 out of 20
