2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
This one actually smells like milk chocolate, with lactose sweetness and malt. Pours dark brown with a giant tan head that leaves lacing and recedes to huge bubbles. Taste is pretty weak at first, with a surge of chocolate and malt, then giving way to a watery finish. Think yoo-hoo. Palate is virtually non-existent. I was disappointed with this one. I really wanted to like it because I’m from STL and always trying to support our microbreweries.

Can. Dark brown. Aroma is nestle quick powder. Taste is more brown ale, or maybe light Porter than stout. Hershey syrup. Body is light but smooth.

Pours dark as night, light beige head leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate and more chocolate. Flavor is chocolate. What were you expecting? Smooth creamy mouthfeel. As sweet stouts go, this is really nice. Pairs nicely with Reese’s peanut butter cups!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can. Mostly roast coffee as I pop the tab and pour. Chocolate undertones start to drift in as the head settles.Black body with a spongy tan head. Mild stout taste at first, not as much coffee as I first got in the nose. Then hello, here’s the chocolate milk taste as promised. Cocoa nibs are light enough to let through the sweetness of milk sugar, which makes this beer deliver as promised. Slightly viscous in the glass, and sticky on the lips. A fine English style stout with the added attraction of real chocolate.

Bomber from a recent trade. Smooth creamy and a little toasty on the finish. Cocoa texture and chocolate flavor late in the sip and as it warms. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque black from the bomber with thin tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big chocolate milk sweet notes, hints of vanilla. Taste is not as big as the nose, but still nice chocolate notes. Sweet, but not crazy, a bit thin, but solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned version. Nose is more bakers chocolate than milk chocolate, with lots of highly roasted old coffee notes. Medium bodied, this is a flavorful English-styled milk stout. Don’t expect a bug Americanized version, but rather a middle oh the road sessionable stout. Some dark molasses flavors add an earthy and smokiness to the flavor that is unusual, but not unpleasant.

This one will probably always be a fave of mine. This is the one that kicked off my tasting habit...I started with this and never stopped. Excellent milk stout for the beginner...the aroma is enough to knock your socks off!
