COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As seen at Flat 12! Malty and rich. Hints of chocolate and the nice roasty finish of coffee complement a milk-sugar sweetness that gives body and a full mouthfeel.

12 oz. pours jet black with creamy islands of cappuccino foam on top. Aroma of espresso and cream with a touch of ozone. Flavor is dark chocolate and too much sourish lactose. Some dark toast on the finish just rescues this one from the almost-sickening sweet and sour milkiness. Medium body is soft with a pleasant medium level of carbonation. A little sticky, but some balance is provided by a light astringency. Aptly named.

Dry finish. Coffee and cocoa flavor. Delicious. Black pour as a sampler at flat 12. Really good

Hophaze (185) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and hints of chocolate. Taste the same other than hints of vanilla. Decent beer ----Hophaze out

Pretty good. A nice milk stout with a really nice aroma but a little flat in the flavor.

Bought a 6 pack art earth fare after having a sample there. Overall a good stout that was fairly bitter. Did not have a lot of different flavor notes.

ContemplateBeer (1608) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Aroma: Moderate coffee roast with a little fudge; touches of vanilla. Appearance: Jet black pour with a mocha head that settles into a slightly sticky skin. Flavor: Lactose and light fudge up front with more coffee roast presence toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: A pretty nice milk stout; one of the better Flat 12 beers I’ve had.

4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Dark brown color, near black from a distance. Thin off-white head, leaving good ropes of lace. Kind of clear brown color around the edges. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Kind of darker chocolate, good bigger roastiness for a milk stout. Moderate sweet taste, good light bitter balance. A solid milk stout.

rondphoto (2372) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 28, 2014
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly opaque brown/black, brown rim head, stripes of lace. Taste is gritty roasted chocolate malt that never becomes sweet or silky enough to make me believe it is a milk stout, but, what it does possess is enough to be a good brew - solid bitter chocolate malt that becomes edgy on the finish.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Andy by way of trade, 11.6.14

Aroma: The aroma is clean and malty, roast, lactose, fairly light aroma overall
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head and light, drippy lacework
Flavor: The flavor is clean and malty too, not super sweet, but pretty malty, with a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, leaning medium’s way, soft carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: I found this to be a solid example of the style. The aroma and flavor are both on the lighter side, but both are still solid. The lightness of the body works nicely actually, and the smoothness add to the drinkability. Pretty solid stuff.
