DocLock (8602) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Pours very dark blackish, with a great head and great lacing. Smells of coffee, prunes, dark chocolate, cognac, and licorice. Tastes very roasty and creamy malty. Finishes very smooth, with a creamy, roasty flavor. Very bold. This one reminds me of the Lancaster Milk Stout. Very nice beer.

JorisPPattyn (8573) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2007
Black beer with dark amber-beige head. Chocolate, and dried wine or brandy barrels; sweet, near-fruity. Dark-brown sugar aroma. Sweet, coffee & cacaopowder; roasted finish, breadcrust. Retronasal like unsweetened cocoacream. Quite velvety MF, despite lively carbonation. Medium bodied, slick. Sweet, but warming stout, nice. Once more thanks to DaveDave

deyholla (8349) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Bottle at the Bloomington Beer Festival. Poured black with a brown head. Aroma had a sweet creamy chocolate note as well as a roasted malt note. The roasted malts were more present in the flavor with the creamy chocolate flavor relegated to a supporting note. High point was smoothness of the beer, described by one word... Amazing!

DuffMan (8064) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown with old copper penny highlights and a thick tan head. Aroma sets my mouth watering: chocolate liqueur, milk, treacle. Flavour is like liquid brownies from the pan, chocolatey, a little doughy, creamy and delicious.
