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.

Rated on 4-09-2011 at Flat 12. This draft beer pours a small tan head and has an opaque dark brown body and an ample amount of lacing. The aroma is roasted dark malt and coffee. The taste is quite simple - dark roasted malt, coffee and a suggestion of chocolate. The mouthfeel is lightly tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This is a very quaffable beer that is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

2/28/14. On tap at the Louisville Beer Store. Black pour with a nice tan head, lasts for awhile and laces well. Toasty aroma, nutty, mild roasted malts, some dark chocolate and coffee. Good flavor, mild roasted malts, dark and milk chocolates, some coffee. Slick mouthfeel. Not bad.

Most milk stouts I’ve had go for a really smooth drinking experience, this one was just way too harsh on the burnt toast flavor. It lingers forever too, I finished one like 10 minutes ago and still feel like I ate something heavily charred.

Growler with Kyle Super Bowl Sunday. Great aroma. Finishes way too hoppy for me. Would not get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle - pours a deep cola brown , thin white head. Aromas of mocha and some roasted malt . Palate slightly thin and is silky smooth ( as it should be for a milk stout) . Taste is light cocoa , light roast coffee , and faint vanilla . Overall a solid sessionable stout . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a lighter cola with thin lacing that’s somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells f dark malt and dark chocolate. Tastes like it smells with some roast as well. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable.

On tap at Flat 12 in Indianapolis. Pint of Poured into a plastic cup, which I thought was kinda BS for a brewery with only 2 customers in it. Get some glasses for the brewery, at least for customers drinking inside. Pours a dark black with solid cascading head. Good appearance, minus the plastic solo cup. Aroma is coffee with slight chocolate notes. Sweet, creamy aroma. Taste is creamy espresso beans and milk chocolate. Smooth on the palate. Good milk stout, average overall for the category.
