Pint pour, on tap at BLVD in Minnetonka. Consumed on 9-26-14. Pleasant aroma features a chocolate milk scent. Pours dark brown with taupe head. Roasted and chocolate milk taste. Nice combination of stout dryness and sweetness. Dry finish. Nice aftertaste that matches the finish. Medium body. Enjoyable though not outstanding overall.

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

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.

Black/mocha color, thin tan head. Aroma mostly milk chocolate, slight coffee. Light to medium body..too thin. Seems watered down to me.

Pours brown with a frothy, e tan head and sweet aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is toasty and burnt, of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel with a long, toasty finish. A nice, solid sweet stout.

Drank warm. Dark black. Creamy chocolate. I pick up on the anise, but only after reading that it has it. I’d like to try others from this brewery.

12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Market, Waukesha, WI. Dark brown cola-like pour with a short khaki head. Expected dark roasted malt aroma of dark chocolate and roasted coffee with faint floral hops. Taste features dark roasted espresso and light smoke with a chocolatey finish. A nicely done milk stout.
