gringo332 (602) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2013
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.

kramer (5770) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head. The nose is sweet chocolate with a little lactose and roast. The flavor is quite sweet with vanilla and lactose with lots of milk chocolate and roastiness. Medium bodied and slightly sticky with soft carbonation and a long lingering sweet finish. Enjoyable enough, but the sweetness does get to be a bit much by the end of the bottle.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is raisin, roast, chocolate. Medium mouth, boozy, bready malt, light roast, good.

Bottle pour, dark chocolate brown with decent tan head. Very light aroma, mild taste is sweet with some roasted malt bitterness. Not a lot going on, overall slightly disappointing :/ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Clear 14.75-oz. porter/stout glass From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif. Price: $10.99 for a 4-pack Purchased: Feb. 9, 2016 Consumed: Feb. 9, 2016 Misc.: Best before April 4, 2016 Was looking for a porter, stout or imperial stout (etc.), to try and this one piqued my interest. Not the best reviews and the two beers I reviewed from them hasnít necessarily been spectacular, but letís go with it. Poured a dark reddish, black color with 1-to-2 fingers of rocky, tan head. Minimal spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.00) Smelled milk chocolate, almost artificial like, wet cocoa, vanilla notes, some dark boozy malts, dark espresso, brownie mix and roasted dark malts. (Smell - 3.75) Tasted artificial creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, wet cocoa, roasty malts, dark toffee, dark espresso and a touch of dark fruits. Very smooth for a 7.2 pct. ABV brew. Super artificial though. (Taste - 3.75) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 3.75) I feel like I slightly overrated this as a 3.75. I usually underrate, but a few things might have put this over tonight. (Overall - 3.75) 3.71 84 B
