Surprisingly smooth. Has a somewhat weak, watery body, but an amazingly sweet and creamy finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. The beer pours a nice jet black with a minimal dark brown head that disperses quickly. The aroma is very sweet with the milk lactose coming forward. Hints of chocolate, light coffee and roast finish off the scent. The taste isn't too different from the smell. It just lacks that complexity of a good stout. The mouth feel is decently thick, but the sweetness of the finish lingers a little longer than I'd like

12 ounce bottle, poured a black color with aromas of sweet milk, light chocolate, roast and some earth. Flavors are the same, sweet lactose, light chocolate, and some grounds, nice stout overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: A surprisingly strong lactose presence, with some slightly smokey roast; chocolate is an afterthought. Appearance: Oily, pitch black pour with foamy mocha head that settled into a solid ring. Flavor: Roast dominates with nearly savory smoke at times; lactose not as strong as the nose. Chocolate is semi sweet and vaguely present. Palate: Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: Some pleasing aspects, but the savory note threw me a bit.

Nice beer. Lactose not as evident as some other in this style. Also not super sweet. Closer to a regular stout. A bit thin and lacking in roasted depth. ABV however is amazingly hidden. I thought this was a 5 or 6% beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes a lot lighter than 8%. Malty, has a bitter sweetness. Ok, but subpar for a stout. One was a lot better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 4/27/13. Pours nearly black with a bubbly dark brown head. Aroma is spicy, creamy, brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, molasses. Taste is chocolate, coffee, creamy, roasty, some sweetness; long bitter mocha finish. Some nice lacing. Medium carbonation. Slick but full bodied. Nice flavor; drinkable. I enjoyed this not quite as much as the oatmeal stout. Still quite nice.
