DiarmaidBHK (3583) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Sampler at brewpub. Pours black with a khaki head. Nice roasted malt notes on the nose. The roasted malt balances nicely with the lactose. Finishes clean. Solid example of the style.

tectactoe (2348) - Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Tap @ Bells: Deep brown with a black core; thin khaki film & modest collar up top. Creamy & milky sweet aroma with dark chocolate, mild hints of roast, & a touch of brown sugar. A little timid & mild overall. Nice amount of sweet lactose & milk sugars on the tongue without being overbearing. Hints of roast, coffee, & semisweet cacao nibs. A touch of char on the back-end to help balance the creamy sweetness of the brew. Light residual sugar & cocoa finish. Nice.

bwa5879 (710) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Black pour with a fluffy Carmel head that turned beige quickly. Nice lacing as well. Really light, sweet roasted cappuccino aroma. Average to low carbonation, frothy/creamy mouthfeel, roasty wet finish. Good mixture of cream and earthy roasted coffee taste, taste turns only slightly acidic on finish. Really good milk stout that has robust backbone and less sweet than most.

kjc51478 (398) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2013
12oz draft from the brewery’s taproom. Appearance is dark brown-black color with light, beige head. Aroma is mild with notes of chocolate and floral scent. Taste is sweet, malty, chocolate and lactic acidity. Palate is full-bodied, smooth and creamy texture, light carbonation, and a smooth finish. Excellent stout with a lactose bent.

koleminer20 (749) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
On draft at All Stouts Day. The pour is a reddish brown with a little lingering darkness. The head is minimal, light lacing. The aroma is heavy on the lactose, with light roasty tones. It's somewhat bland. With just a creamy roast being the prominent flavor. Not a bad beer, but not complex enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is sweet, lot of milk lactose, roasted malt. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head. Taste is milk lactose, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is light, carbonated. Overall, this is ok but I’m not blown away.

Pint at the Eccentric Cafe on 3/30/13. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Malty and creamy nose with notes of chocolate and roast. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a touch of lactose sourness before a roasty finish.

Draft sampler @ Bell’s. Pours a dark brown near black. Aroma of chocolate, taste is milk chocolate and sweet, heavy on the milky flavor. Decent overall.
