COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Nice thick black pour, very little head save for a few tan bubbles at the edges. Sweet chocolate aroma, hint of coffee. Moderately thick mouthfeel. Nice smooth roast chocolate flavor with a mild sour turn at the end from the lactose. Could’ve used some extra body, but this was still very good.

dark horse knows how to make a sexy looking stout. thick black great dark brown head. great job. probably the best smelling of any cream/milk stout i have had. most smell like spoiled milk. not this one. very nice coffee with cream aroma also a hint of campfire wood smoke. the milk flavor isnt overbearing it brings a very nice sweet creamy balance to the bitter coffee flavor. bittersweet creamy coffee finish with a medium dry end. medium body. smooth but seems a bit thin. with a bit more weight i would have easily given the palate a 5. straightforward but very nice. hands down the best milk stout i have had thus far.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Bottle, poured black with a few bubbles, I could count them on one hand, roasted malt and sweet rise to the nostrils, hint of chocolate, dark chocolate and vanilla, some bitter chocolate and coffee fragrances, roasted malt and chocolate flavors, light bite in each drink, smooth on the palate, a touch thin in the mouth otherwise a nice drink.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle from Silphium. Definitely creamy, slightly thick, but overall a little boring. Nose has a nice lactic sweetness -- usually the milk is kinda nasty smelling -- and a touch of roast. Pour is dead boring. Flavor is similar, slightly milky, dry, creamy. Tasty.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Thanks to Silphium for the bottle. Black with an almost nonexistent head. Aroma of coffee and creamy chocolate.
Sweet taste, mainly, with a hint of bitterness. Medium to heavy body. Flat carbonation. Creamy texture.

Very deep brown/near black pour. Quickly dissipating extremely dark brown head. This beer has a surprisingly light nose, but is chock full of beefy roastiness, fresh-brewed coffee, bittersweet caramel and chocolate. A very balanced and standout aroma. Upon first sip, all I can conjure up is "Dark Horse is such a fun brewery, good beer too." Nice heavy roastiness sets in soon thereafter. Also adorning my tastebuds with their respective flavors are light smokiness, chocolate, caramel, coffee, cookie. The palate is a little thinner than I’d like, medium-light to medium, moderately bitter. The best part is yet to come: an amazingly delicious chocolate chip cookie finish, just like a liqueur produced from fine exotic ingredients. A winner from Dark Horse.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Black. Small, dense, brown layer of foam. Aroma of roasted bitterness, subtle chocolate and vanilla, whole coffee beans, big time dark chocolate as it warms. Flavor of huge chocolate chips, subtle coffee, same roasted bitterness, subtle vanilla, cookie malt, and some light hops in the finish and aftertaste. Medium, balanced body. Easy drinking. I’d like a little more weight in the body. Still very good.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Roasty aroma with some burnt sugar sits atop a fairly flat, black beer with little light brown head. Rich and creamy with lots of velvet and roasted goodness. Rather limp, with a milky, sweet chocolate flavor. well balanced and very tasty. These guys do great stouts! Thanks Brad.

marcus (6588) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2007
12oz bottle from Artusory. This dark brown ale poured with a miniscule tan head, eliciting a strong chocolate espresso aroma. This one is very tasty, though somewhat flat. The most prominent flavor is bitter chocolate, but there is also a noticeable coffee presence. There is a very thick slightly bitter finish that sticks to your tongue.

TheEpeeist (3371) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a brief but beautiful crema head atop dark espresso. Dark chocolate and coffee. Prominent bourbon alcohol. Melt some bittersweet chocolate, add 8 shots of espresso, some cane sugar, vanilla, half cup cream and a squirt of lime and you’ll get an idea of how tasty this stout is. Silky and rich with just enough back end drying to chase off remaining lactic sweetness. Ready for another sip. TOO good!
