3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a murky blackish hue, some lighter brown edges with small frothy tannish head laces small. Aromas are touches of sweet lactose sugars, light roasted malts, a touch of cocoa, vanilla, irish soda bread, and some sweeter toffee, coffee grounds, coffee and cream. Initial is medium bodied, preaching sweeter coffee and cream, roasted barley, soda bread, vanilla cream, light cocoa, coffee grounds, some toffee, biscuits. Sweeter slanted, vanilla and cream cut into the roasted malts, a bit heavy, but tasty. An ok sweet stout, a bit heavy on the milky sugar for me as it covers up most of the roast. But thatís personal preference. Pretty sweet overall, but thatís how some people roll in their Milk Stout preferences. It reminds me of Dunk-a-Roos frosting from my youth. Itís a good beer, just more for a sweet minded drinker

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a head of frothy medium sized bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a semi-opaque dark ruby red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of roasted malt and brown malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at End of the Line, Indy. Almost totally black pour, with some faint carbonation and a heavy-ass looking head. Nose of straight chocolate malts and lacto additions, which I reckon is as it should be. Body was heavy and creamy, just shy of too much so. But I canít complain about something thatís done well to style. Slight notes of bitter hops to balance in the taste. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of lots of roasted malt, some coffee. Flavor features more of the sweet lactose as well as burnt/charred malt and a hint of coffee. Not what I expect from a milk stout, as the lactose is well blended with the roasted malt so it does not stand out too much. Yummo!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of coffee and light chocolate. Taste is very similar. Light but this beer lacked the creamy texture of sweet stouts, a little light on the body and mouthfeel.
