esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2012
On tap at Kuhnhenn Brewpub. 11:47 black with a creamy brown ring atop and sticky lace. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, dark roasted malts and Hersheys syrup. Taste a bit like Hershey’s syrup too with cocoa, roasted malt, mocha, light fruit and some darker malts. Zinde would like this, while not bad, a touch too cloying for me.

Tap at Detroit Fall Beer Fest. Dark brown/black. Some nice brown head on pour. Rich creamy body tastes like melted M & Ms. Deliciously chocolatey.

Dfonorow (1600) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2014
On tap at Kuhnhenn. Pour is deep black with a medium tan head. Aroma and flavor of milk chocolate, vanilla beans, dairy creamer, cocoa powder, and earth. Finish has more lactose and vanilla than the body.

djd07 (3893) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a dark brown with small head. The aroma is strong lactose and sugar malt. Thin mouthfeel with nice lactose, rich chocolate, sweet finish, hides alcohol well, very good.

burg326 (3880) - Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Poured a dark black color from the bottle with aromas of chocolate, lactose, light nuts, some vanilla, and a touch of sweetness. Flavors are chocolate, vanilla, lactose, and a hint of nuts. Really nice stout overall, nice mouth feel, thick and creamy.

AirForceHops (3516) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. Dark black color. The aroma is down right awesome!! Vanilla bean chocolate, coffee with creamy lactose sugar.

Deep layers of sweet goodness! Lighter body but not light in flavor. Lots of chocolate, coffee and cream and a nice amount of vanilla bean. Some mild bitterness that helps cut the sweet lactose sugars. Not overly sweet. Another fine job.

AdamJackson (2875) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Thanks to whoever for sending this to me. Enjoyed slightly cold and allowed to warm up. Split 3 ways.

A - Looks like chocolate peanut butter sweet milky heaven.

S - Nose is quite nice. Lots of chocolate candies, sweet vanilla and a huge chocolate with some sort of hazelnut french vanilla liquor.

T - The lactose makes this beer awesome. Chocolate roasted vanilla. Just loads of awesome-ness. The sweet creamy notes accentuate the vanilla perfectly. Excellent finish.

M - Oily, sweet and very thick.

O - This is a fantastic beer!

> Tootsie roll type of watery, thin stout

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ northernbrews ][ Trade ][ Pizza Boy Snifter ][ 6.14.14 ]
>> 2014 bottling. HP laserjet label. Pours clear sepia, small, tight foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is detergent, amaretto, chocolate covered cherry, milk chocolate candy, tootsie roll. Palate is thinner, ashy, dusty. Taste is tootsie roll, ash, not sticky. Nose eventually opens up to cherry amaretto ice cream. Feels like 8%+ as stated.

>!< weaker body, ashy, too much tootsie roll

wchesser (1244) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle from FlandersNed-thanks, Steve! Deep brown, low carbonation. Rich nose of sweet vanilla and chocolately malts. Taste follows with smooth mouthfeel. Pretty rich sweet stuff-perfect for a 2 or 3 way split for desert.

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Black pour with a small ring of tan foam. Lactose, coffee, cocoa, and vanilla in the aroma. Taste is nice lactose and coffee with mild hop bitterness and chocolate. Relatively clean mouthfeel. I liked this beer - very non-gnarly for this brewery. Good one.
