Yum. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Pours a heavy oily black with substantial tan head. Chocolatey, almost burnt taste that is smooth on the palate. A good balance of hops and malts; overall, a delicious stout.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Very black with creamy off white head. A nose full of chocolate and café au lait. Sweet with soft, filling, malty but clean mouthfeel, and a salty bitter finish with some pleasant grassy hops. Well balanced and really enjoyable.

Opaque black color wtih a medium light brown head. Roasted coffee, malt, chocolate and sweet cream aroma. Extremely sour lactose flavor, with some wood, roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Creamy feel with crisp carbonation. An interesting experience!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark black with a medium tan head. The aroma was full of roasted marshmallow, ashes, coffee, and dark chocolate. The flavor was interesting...burnt wood, roasted coffee, and a huge sour lactic tone (almost overpowering) with a definite cardboard aftertaste. The feel was quite crisp on the tongue...not too thin in my opinion...semi-dry finish. Thanks to BBB63 for this unexpected brew!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick tan head atop a nice black body. Aroma is sweet, mocha, some nutty, light vanilla. Taste is mild up top, before strong roasty coffee hits midbody. Medium body lacks the creaminess the name suggests.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich, creamy, cafe au lait colored head that lingers a little, then goes quickly and leaves a nice lace on the glass. Opaque brown/black color. Fascinating aroma that really does smell a little milky and a little chocolatey -- mildly sweet and cocoa. Pleasant and interesting flavor that has some roastiness in it, a little coffee. It's full and rich without being too sweet or too roasty. Very nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brown and black, tan creamy head. Notes of chocolate covered coffee beans, cream, nuts, and a touch of fruit. Some roasted coffee, berry, cream, milk chocolate in the flavors. Soft carbonation, very smooth, easy drinking. Good for a sweet stout session.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 A nice, sweet, milk stout. This one pours very dark, with a nice off white/tan head. It tastes very malty, with hints of molasses, chocolate milk, black licorice, and blackberries. The finish is smooth and refreshing. Mix this one with the Lancaster strawberry wheat to make what they call a "chocolate covered strawberry". It is delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown hue with diminishing tan head and some lace. The aroma hints of coffee, mocha, caramel, hazelnut, aromatic hops, and sour fruits. The taste is expectly lactic and slightly sour on top of the sweet malts and mild bitterness. Undertones of coffee and grapefruit. The finihs is sour and bitter. The mouthfeel is thin and lively. This is not creamy as expected with a milk stout, more akin to a porter than sweet stout. Still quaffabel and worthy of a try. Thanks Mike (Tidiaguy) for the bottle.

Milk stout, strange name. It says it is brewed with lactose but It doesn't have a milk taste that I can detect. It pours out dark and thin with a small white head. Taste is burnt almost like a cinder or fire bock. This beer is unique but does not have the rich coffee, nut or carmel flavors, I look for in a stout. This beer is just alright. I will probably never have it agian.
