At Eccentric, Black pour, tan head, sweet roasty and tasty. Chocolate is ever present. A nice representation of the style. Good brew!

Smooth Hershey Chocolate milk and roasted malt in aroma, flavor is bakers choclate with some roasted malting,a bitterness or even slight sourness that probaly comes from the lactose,not as sweet as say Left Hand,but a flavorful interesting stout for the Bells collection. On tap at Ecc. Cafe

Draft at the Eccentric Cafe (from backlog). Near-black pour with minimal head. Milk chocolate aromas with a bit of malt in the back. Smooth chocolate milk taste with only a hint of bitter malt at the end.

Dark and all about roasted malt. Sticky sweet, thin head, very tasty beer. Nutty and rich.

On tap at Bells. And I was sad about missing All Stouts Day...turns out they were still all on tap a couple days later! This one certainly featured the smoothness of the lactose sugar and plenty of roasty, chocolaty goodness. Another nice easy drinking stout. Good stuff.

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.

On tap 2/4/09 at the Eccentric Cafe. On the board "dry stout/ contains dairy". Not muich in the way of aroma, pouring a dark rich brown with a thin head. Notes of caramel, milk chocolate, and a hint of fig. Fairly dry almost crisp finish with a slight metallic undertone. Not too bad.

koleminer20 (678) - 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

Draft at Eccentric cafe. Pours an opaque black. Medium light tan head. Aroma of chocolate milk. Mild sweet chocolate flavor. Very smooth. Some roastiness. Palate is light, but not watery. Very drinkable beer. Not something that is a must have, but overall is very pleasant to drink.
