An American sweet stout, this beer is brewed with roasted barley, caramel, and black barley malts to give it a complex body of flavor. We then add lactose to give it a distinct sweetness associated with milk stouts. Just the right amount of hops balances this beer out to make it very drinkable.

Tap sample. Poured a black color with an average fizzy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy dark chocolate finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.

Taster on tap at the brewery. Very dark brown red color. Good thin bit of khaki head. Leaves good lace. Smooth, soft, kind of creamy carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Good milk chocolate, more cocoa nibs than anything. Light roast. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Solid milk stout. Not bad. A bit sweet for me to want to do a whole pint though. A lot of lactose in the finish. On par for the style

Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown with a small beige head that leaves a thin sheet of lace in the glass. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, roast, tobacco, fudge, and nuts. The flavor is mostly the same but has some cola sweetness. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a roasty, sweet mouthfeel. Good sweet stout.

Dark beer with a thin beige head. Nose of roasted grains and molasses. This is a sweet beer with lots of brown sugar and molasses and lactose. Some roasted grains, toast, and something green and ashy in the finish. Sweet, tastey stout.

Draft to taster at the brewery. Looks good for the style; black with light beige lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and malty with a bit of roast and a nice, (somewhat) smooth finish. Good beer.

Very smooth stout. Nice coffee flavor. Very easy going down and easy to drink. Best beer I had when I sampled there.

Great mix of coffee and roasted malts for aroma. Good sweetness and smooth carbonation for a milk stout. Delicious flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roasted barley. Overall an excellent brew!

Draft at Dayton Beer Company. I really liked this stout. Pretty textbook dark brown, stout appearance with a firm, bubbly, brown head. Big aroma of coffee that reminds me of espresso powder and a hint of lactose in the background. The flavor matches the aroma with lots of cold coffee and a strong malt backbone. Well made
