3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle - Pours black with a thin tan head. This beer smells like chocolate milk. Seriously. And once that idea got into my head, I couldn’t think of anything else when I smelled it. It’s a nice, substantial aroma, but it’s definitely chocolate milk. Fortunately the flavor has some good roast malt to go with the chocolate and milk. It also finishes with some mild bitterness. It’s medium bodied, creamy, and pretty enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours oily black with a medium tan head. Aroma is great, milk chocolate and mild hop "pepper". Flavor is equally good, lots of chocolate, moments of coffee bitterness, a good sour lactic note, tobacco, and peppery hops at the end. Very nice, and not overdone like too many stouts these days.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle- everything I DO NOT like about a stout. Strong, bitter and acidic. It poured out dark brown to black with a hearty and long lasting head. The aroma was toasty. Had a bitter coffee flavor with none of the subtle under taste of a really good stout. It was okay, but not much more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark with a crimson hue and deep tan soapy head. The aroma has lots of milky roasted malt, bitter cocoa and vanilla. Medium fully rich body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with cream and coffee bitterness along with heavily roasted malt. The finish has a lot more bitterness than expected for something called a ’milk stout’ , but still smooth and enjoyable. A very good stout.

355 ml bottle, RBNAG07. Dark brown, almost black. Medium greyish brown head. Bold roasted chocolate aroma. Smooth texture. Licorice flavours. Surprisingly dry for a milk stout. Lacks sweetness. Nice cocao aroma and flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice beer indeed. Smooth body and nice aroma of coffee and some chocolate. One detractor might be a bit of a thin texture, but flavor makes up for that and more. A nice stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet aroma, with notes of coffee and roasted malts. Appearance is a dark brown/red, slight head. The flavor has a chocolate coffe taste, with definite notes of lactose from the milk. This milk sugar adds a slightly sour taste to the overall sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little thick, and the finish is long lasting. Overall a decent stout
