Number Too - This beer is made with milk sugar (lactose) which gives this beer a nice creamy mouth feel which mingles with hints of chocolate and roasty flavors.

This is really much better once itís pretty close to room temp. Aroma is all dark malts, and a little sweet. Taste has a lot of chocolate and a lot of coffee, nice roasted malts, but also some sourness which is disagreeable. Finishes like a dream though-all of above minus the sourness. The lactose doesnít really show up all that much. Mouthfeel is too thin.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2008
Sweet, slightly sour scent. Notes of milk, chocolate, coffee, burnt sugar, and dishwater. Not entirely agreeable. Taste is off, as is the mouthfeel.

Bottle: Dark, silky black pour...very enticing. Notes of marshmallow cream, chocolate, brown sugar and a lingering smokiness to the roasted malt base. Medium-full bodied mouth feel...still retains some of that creaminess. Initially dry yet the silky chocolate aspects come through on the delivery and bring the subtle smoke and sweet fruitiness with it. Very solid.

Pours flat and dark black. Aroma is chocolate, cream, and lactose. Taste is about the same.......sweet chocolate, milk, sugar. Pretty good.

Poured flat. Might be a bad bottle, weíll see. Iím going to have to re-rate after my cold is gone anyway. Almost as good as its big brother Black Bier. Just enough sweetness from the lactose to keep it from being too rich and dark. Nice.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2008
12oz bottle. Aroma of chocolate, berries, cream, and coffee. Black as hell with very small dark brown head that fully diminished and left no lace. Flavor is sweet then bitter with chocolate, roasted coffee, pipe tobacco and molasses. Palate is full bodied and oily flat. This is a big beer with lotís of good flavors. Really good but the lactose is going to kill me.

DietPepsican (1571) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Black with thin dirty brown head. Strong coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavor is bitter coffee, milk chocolate, roasty malt, smoke, hazelnut. Finishes slightly bitter, creamy. Nice carbonation.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Aroma is dark milk chocolate, and this strange bock-like blending of dark cocoa and this ineffable goodness that I can only describe as port- but less winey. Flavor is dark chocolate, port, bitter cocoa. This is very straightforward, but damn good.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Bottle from Stine - thanks! Nice looking blackish pour with a smaller head. Aroma has a bold creamy, roastiness that mixes well with the dark chocolate and light coffee essence coming off this one. Flavor is chocolatey-creamy with some light smokiness, a hint of espresso, and light hop bitterness. Nice mouthfeel - Good stout with a taste doesnít quite live up to the wonderful aroma (or its close relative Black Bier), but still a nice stout from Dark Horse.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Low carbonation. Lots of cocoa in the aroma. Tastes a bit like melted milk chocolate. Distinct lactic finish. Very nice.
