brokensail (15257) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
A: The pour is just about black. Very little highlights, if any, that I can see. A nice tan/mocha colored head perches itself on top. S: The nose is full of roasted malt and sweet milk chocolate. T: A very interesting flavor profile. A light roasted malt flavor with a very sweet finish. There is quite a bit of chocolate coupled with a mild bitterness. M: A very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. The body is medium, and there’s a moderate level of carbonation. D: The Milk/Sweet stout is a style that’s beginning to grow on me. Generally I am more of an RIS fan, but the sweetness is quite a welcomed change of pace. A great beer, and I’m glad I have another.

Draught, 6.1%. Roasted aroma, sweet and salty liquorice. Black colour. Good stable brown head. The flavour is milder but fuller than the aroma. Good mild coffee note with only a little bitterness. Very creamy flavour and mouthfeel. Really good and well-balanced.

Oakes (14830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Black; rich roast in the nose. Slightly fatty body, light fruitiness (a function of the high gravity) - like cherries and grapes; long malty finish. Soft, smooth, slightly creamy and a little bit nutty. Kind of simple.

bhensonb (13609) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle numbered 8150. Dark brown/black color with a tan smear for head. Aroma of dark toasted malt, and something like vanilla. Near medium body with mild, smooth carbonation. Flavor is dark toasted, near burnt, malt with coffee and a touch of vanilla. Then it seems more like anise, and sucking on dark chocolate. The finish is nearly dry, and bitter like baker’s chocolate. Now the body seems fuller. This is strangely variable stuff. Tastes really good.
