Pours a thick black color with a touch of mocha foam. On the nose its sweet chocolate, oreo cookie and roasted malts. On the palate its very close to the nose with a full body smooth richness thats quite nice. Nice bit of lactic on the mid to late palate cleans up the finish nicely.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Very good aroma, coffee scent. Nice, creamy pour with some head. Great taste and almost an oily finish, but very nice. Sweet with strong coffee notes but not overpowering. Very nice from a town of 220 people

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is nice, chocolate milk, light roasted coffee, anise, and a light fruitiness. Taste is a tad bland but not bad. Chocolate, coffee, anise, and cream, but all are muted. Medium to thick body, very creamy, slight chalky too. Ok sweet stout.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Black color. Just about one finger of light brown head that fell quickly and left no lacing.
5.0 S: Wonderful interplay of lactose and chocolate. Actually, there’s a good hit of coffee in there as well, so this is much like a mocha latte. Light roastiness and plenty of oats. This is incredibly intense, but also incredibly appealing. Excellent!
4.5 T: Taste is a lot like the nose. Lactose, chocolate, and coffee flavors do the trick again. Oats, a light roastiness, and grainy malts add complexity. Really nice again.
4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and insanely smooth.
5.0 D: The taste could have easily been a five. This is a damn tasty brew and shockingly close to Cowbell in terms of flavor profile and quality. I think I need to get ahold of several more of these.

No bottle date
A: pours a dark brown with a small latte foam head with little resonance. Falls to a sheet of the same with spotty lacing. Looks good, but nothing impressive.
S: Cream, cocoa, hay, sheetgrass, cold pressed coffee. Nutty flavors. Malts are sweet and creamy. Very nice. Smallest hint of salted caramel.
T: Sweet and creamy yet again. Plenty of cocoa, latte flavors. Dry and roasted dark chocolate malts. The lactos is very evident here.
M: Medium body with moderate to spritely carbonation. Dry finish. I think the carb is a touch high for the style and the body a touch low.
O: Nice, easy drinker. The best milk stout, no, but good. Sweet in the right places.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Really good sweet stout. Pours dark with a bit of tan head. Smells like coffee, tobacco, vanilla, milk chocolate, and banana. Smooth and slick palate. Very milky and creamy with nice chocolate and coffee flavours coming through. Roasted malts. Sour cherry finish. Delicious!

Bottle from khoffman43 pours deep dark amber with a tan head with little retention. Nose of coffee grinds. Taste begins with coffee grinds, light chocolate. Mild bitterness as most of balance comes from the roast. Body is medium, if not a tad thin.
