pivo (2571) - GERMANY - JUN 5, 2004
Light nose - roasted coffee. Dark dark brown-black color and a foamy tan head that disappates. Smooth sweet syrupy malt initially with some licorice notes, becomes bitter - like black coffee that lingers on your teeth after the swallow. Fairly simple profile, but a good balance and enjoyable overall.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Nice sweet chocolate and cantelope aroma with some roasted malts. Very thick black color with a clingy, foam head. Sweet cantelope flavors through-out with some chocolate in the beginning and a dark roasted coffee finish. Excellant stout.

YogiBeera (2480) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Opaque colored, spare light brown head. Inense coffee nose, licorice also. Very heavy roasted, almost burnt malt flavor, licorice and tabacco too. Nice.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Pours a dark brown/black with thin, evaporating head. Aroma is sweet, but nothing too noticeable. Flavor has lots of sweet cream to it, along with some malt and a little chocolate. Oddly enough, some bitterness as well. Good, but not great.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Dark with no head. Aroma is of dark chocolate. Flavour is full creamy, roasted and malty. A bit of fruit and a well malted finish.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Creamier than any stout I have ever experienced. Tastes almost like they added a almost expired carton of cream to this. Very rich taste, roasted malt, creamy finish. Excellent beer.

zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a velvety black with a creamy looking tan head. Rich and creamy malt aroma. I’ve never been able to smell cream this clearly in a stout before. Good strong coffee and cream taste that gives way to a smooth malty finish. Feels like silk in your mouth. MarkR, did you ever know that you’re my hero?

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Bottle: Aroma is very malty and creamy. Faint coffee smell as well. Pours black with very little head. What head there is, is a dark tan. Strong coffee and some cream flavor with some malt flavoring as well. Slightly bitter. Finished creamy with a medium bitter aftertaste.

Sweet malt rich Coffee with lots of cream. My first and hopefully not last milk stout. Easy on carbonation a plus. Mid-sip fruitiness from yeast. Black pour
