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?

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

Great stout. You can taste the creaminess. Very dark beer, a little bitter, and that creamy finish. Thumbs up on this one.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2004
This stuff is pretty darn good. Big brown frothy head that is long lasting. nose is malty and creamy and chalky. The taste is bitter and creamy and somehwat chalky and the middle is rusty but finishes creamy and bitter with some roasted malts. Quite good.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2004
Fully dark in color, a deep, deep black, and a sturdy cocoa-y brown head. Aroma is rich and roasty, toasty, but still rather light. Perhaps that's where the cream comes in, I'd guess, though it's on the subtle side. Mouthfeel gets a great initial hop blitz , that mellows soon after., but not before giving off blasts of cherryish sweetness. Slight bitterness continues with every swallow, but is ultimately subsided. All in all, a very tasty, unique stout, soothing and delicious.

A wonderfully creamy stout. It pours piutch black with next to no head - even if you try to get one. A nice taste and aroma of coffee and chocolate. A definite winner.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 14, 2004
A black body with a brown beaded head. Great lacing through the whole beer. Aroma of lactose and milk chocolate with some vanilla in the backgrouond. The body is a little thin and is perpetuated by the amount of CO2. Not as good as other Bell's stouts. By the way, as a homebrewer I can guaruntee that this does in fact contain lactose.

From bottle. Nice brown head, lasts a while with nice lacing throughout. Very roasted, malty aroma. Rich mouthfeel, with a nice malty finish. Smooth. Nicely carbonated.
