SKA "Steel Toe Milk Stout"
SKA Brewing - Durango, Colorado USA
Sweet Stout (ABV 5.4%)

Rating: 3.9/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a thick dark black with an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy light brown head that was mostly diminishing with just a little residue left to cling to the glass thus producing some really excellent lacing.

The aroma had a strong scent of a burnt chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and lactose.

The taste was a nice malty sweet and very smooth with a note of toffee and chocolate in the beginning and finished with a sweet chocolate-coffee flavor that had a milky caramel presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow which was just long enough for the milky chocolate-coffee flavor to settle in.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between medium and full in body with a nice creamy texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall a nice smooth creamy tasting Brew with a great drinkability.
