UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 19.06.2013, tap @ The Ginger Man NY:
Small creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet roasted, dark malts, dark sugar, mocha, caramel, lactose, coffee. Taste is sweet, dark sugar, mocha, coffee, grass, lactose. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, a little too sweet.

12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Dark brown pour with a thin khaki head. Rich chocolate aroma. The flavor is much lighter on the chocolate than anticipated with the sweetness from the lactose coming through. Surprising amount of alcohol warmth from this one. A good milk stout, but I don’t get as much chocolate as I had hoped for.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes: Poured opaque black, with a small, thin tan head and moderate bubbling along the glass. Aroma is roasty and chocolatey. Medium body, mildly oily, with a soft, pleasing finish. Rich chocolatey flavor that mixes with a roasty note that lingers nicely. The cream comes forward as it warms, and mixes with the chocolate while lending a light sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark brown pour with tan head ring. Sweet almost lactose notes. Roasty and cocoa, but somewhere in the aroma, there is a tootsie roll. Some coffee and a bit of tobacco on the finish. But overall, a pleasant, drinkable sweet stout. Nothing overly special though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 8/31/13
Aroma: The nose is mild and moslty chocolate, with some roast, and sweet malts as well
Appearance: It pours a dark brown colorwith a small head and some light, drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, not a ton going on, pretty one dimensional
Palate: The body is light for the style and it has a thin feel, soft carbonation, and a short duration
I thought this beer was okay, but ultimately it is just a little too one dimensional and a little too thin to get a higher score than this.

push dark black brown clear with a big creamy cocoa colored head. Aroma and flavor are lighter as expected from a single sweet stout, with a decently creamy body. You get chocolate, not too sweet or bitter but blended well on that body, roasted malts as well.

This is a solid stout --- not exceptional, but really very tasty and worth seeking out for repeat tastings. Pours very dark brown with a nice medium brown head. Nose is a little roast but mostly sweeter, chocolately notes. Flavor puts the roast well into the background, with the chocolate notes really taking over. Not too sweet and quite tasty.
