This poured a very dark brown color with a very light tan head. Aroma was medium roasted malts, and light chocolate. Flavor was very silky smooth roastedness, sweet light chocolate, and some milky chalkiness too. Overall a really good milk stout.

Served in a pint glass at Meridian Pint’s Bell’s Night of Darkness. Pours near black with a solid tan head with a good bit of lacing and a nice collar. The nose is a bit tame with a bit of roast and chocolate. I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt given the glassware and the fact that it got quite a bit better as it warmed up. The flavor is quite nice and complex with a chocolate sweetness plus a touch of coffee. Nice roasted character and a bit of black licorice in the finish. The feel is ridiculously creamy and smooth with a nice chewiness. Awesome, awesome body. Almost certainly the best milk stout that I’ve ever had. I really hope they bottle this.

Aroma of lactose, booze, roast caramelized malt and coffee. Pours black with good head and lacing. Thick consistency, low to medium carbonation. Taste sweet and bitter. Tap at Bells.

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.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Nice roast, and milk chocolate nose, just a hint of smoke and a light fruit note. The taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with smooth and creamy chocolate, plenty of lactose sweetness, light roast and coffee, dark chocolate finish. Velvety texture. Lovely beer, perfectly done milk stout.

tectactoe (2978) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 À la pompe au pub: Des notes rôti, chocolaté avec une présence en bouche velouté. Excellente entrée en scène pour Bell’s dans mon ’’sampler’’.
