Pours deep mahogony/black. Medium sized tan fluffy head with decent lasting lace. Roasted with coffee and hop perfume in the front. Later on more of a lighter hop nose as it warms. Peppery body. Sweet and roasty. Earth. Berry tart. Smooth and nutty. Short lived moderately dry finish.

On tap at the ODBF ’04. Deep black color with a tan head. Nice oatmeal aroma. Chocolaty, with some roasted coffee as well. Nice flavor. Mocha like. Roated flavor with a hint of cream in the aftertaste. A very decent stout. Can’t wait for it to hit Washington!

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 29, 2004
100% opaque black with slight hues of mahogany. Thick head is comprised of light brown colored, medium-small sized, bubbles. Smells lightly of mocha, milk, maple syrup, and caramel. Milky smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied. Tastes of burnt espresso flavored with chocolate milk, carbonated water and a full amount of alcohol. Aftertaste is roasted/bitter hops. Purchased at Chevy Chase Wine and Spirits in the "most powerful city on earth," Washington, DC.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2004
From the very first sip, it was chocolate milk mixed with black coffee; sweet milky body, roasty edges. Ended dry-er than I expected. Dark dark brown body, silky lacing. Very very good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5513) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 I always think that I am going to like this one more than I do. Fresh it is fairly pleasing but this one really ages horribly. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a relatively thick black color with a medium sized creamy brown head that left great lacing. The aroma is malty, and roasty with notes of coffee and vanilla. The flavor is surprisingly dry for a milk stout. There is a strong roasty and malty flavor with a definite dry coffee element and notes of vanilla and cream. There is an off flavor of lactose. The finish is long with roasty malts, a touch of floral hops and vanilla. Moderately full bodied. Better on draft than in the bottle in my experience. Interesting.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Roasted malt/lactose aroma. Nice sweet coffee and chocolate tastes come through. A very dark pour, small tan head. Great beer.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
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.

omhper (21265) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2004
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.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 20, 2004
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!
