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.

Art & Antiques in Shiner, TX. Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours caramel black with a strong khaki head that lingers. Smells of rich milk chocolate and a touch of malt. Flavor is the same - smooth and creamy. Great taste for the ABV. Would drink again.

Wonderful. Sweetness, getting some milkiness (cream?) as well. Solid, not particularly roasty stout base. Incredible flavor for the ABV.

mbgrayson (560) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours dark brown, with a long lasting tan head. Aroma is richly of chocolate. Taste is sweet, of milk chocolate, and quite smooth. A very drinkable beer. Thumbs up!

JMerritt (1844) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottled, courtesy Narnad. Really dark brown with a thin, light brown head. Milk chocolate aroma is very pronounced, slightly roasty (reminiscent of s’mores), and a bit boozy. Flavor is a bit more heavy on the roast, which grows slightly in intensity. Finish is rather dry with notes of bittersweet cocoa and toasted pecans. There is a bit of hot alcohol in the middle, but not overly so.

Rich scent. Bite for imperial but soft enough that you wouldn’t know. Chocolate is sweet and foam is light. Very good on tap. Best when not super cold

Bottle at Eulogy. Opaque brown pour with a thin tan ring. Light splashes of lace. Hershey chocolate syrup. Liquorice. Cold coffee. Smokey vinyl. Not as creamy as expected. Solid stuff.

Poured from a bottle. Dark brown color, large tan head. Chocolate malt aroma. Full body with a creamy chocolate malt flavor and a full finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcclainc50 (204) - New York, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours a thin looking dark brown with a this tan head. Little aroma, but of roasted malt and coffee there is a little. Little burnt taste at the beginning, with a bit of currant flavor, long slightly bitter finish. Too thin to really enjoy.

Bottle. Dark brown, thin head, chocolatey a little sweet. Palate is a little thin for style and finish is long.
