Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Darkness, utter darkness, black as she gets, with a lush, creamy tan head, very attractive... deep roastiness, rich and bitersweet, espresso tones, and chocolate all over the place.. huge in the mouth, full bodied, vast mouthfeel, though the chocolate taste is minor, compared to something like Rogue or Young’s...wait, I take that back, sorry, it’g getting stronger now...funny how that works...no, it’s getting rather thick now...yum, this is quite a delicious choco-stout. If you can get one near you, what’s your excuse? This is bottled ecstacy.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Pours a black brown color with light brown head. Lots of head. Aroma is of choclate and roasted malt. Flavor is carbonated and full of choclate (of course). Also picked up toffee, hops and bitter. Like drinking a cold Mocha. Palate is bit thin for my taste. Overall a nice brew. Thanks to PPP63 for this tasty brew!

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2004
Poured black with a small lasting tan head. Smells of bitter chocolate, coffee and coal. Flavor is good, burnt chocolate with a nice bitter finish. Thick body with just the slightest bit of carbonation for a wonderful stout mouthfeel. Nice dark bitter chocolate finish.

IndianaRed (3058) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Bottle Pours a very dark bown with a small tan head that setles into a fine ring that is maintained indefinately. Spotty lacing. Aroma is a delicious, chocolatey, molasas, with a hint of espresso and plenty of dark roasted grain. Flavor is a much more bitter and hopy than the aroma led me to expect. Fairly well balanced but strong. Finish is bitterswet chocolate and dry.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Tar black body with a nice light brown head. Roasted malt, coffee and sweet chocolate in the aroma with a slight tone of alcohol. Flavorfull and smooth. Bitter hoppy with a sour citrusy finish. Dark roasted malt and coffee notes. Smooth and tasty.

3fourths (8702) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Dark brown with a very thin light caramel colored head. The nose is a distinct chocolate malts and milk chocolate aroma, but also has some fuesal and vegetable-like off aromas. Medium body, semi-sweet chocolate chip flavors throughout, but a little sickly sweet in the finish with some grainy vegetable flavors... this stout demands a thicker body and more smoke. The lingering coating of the mouth resembles unsweetened bakers chocolate.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - SEP 9, 2004
black body and ruby at edges. dark tan head, both creamy and foamy. lasts pretty well. USDA organic! roasted malt aroma, later cocoa and prune upon warming. smooth and creamy mouthfeel, fizzy up front but fades. dry/bitter roasted malt/coffee flavor start, then gets watery and coffee/bitter finish.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2004
This is not a terrible example of a milk stout, though not a big fan of this style this was reasonably tasty. Pours murky and dark, with very little head. The aroma is slightly fruity, like figs and prunes with a light burnt malty flavor some milk chocolate and coffee. Very syrupy, with a little vegetal taste at times. Not bad.
