4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee and sweet chocolate with a hint of dried fruit. Taste follows aroma but adds roastiness. Thickness is just right for this, and the light bitter finish only adds to the experience. A must-try beer.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 This stuff is certainly dark and stormy, just the way i like it! Black as night, so dont let the milk in the name fool ya, it contains no calcium, so dont pour it on your cereal in the morning. Wait, go ahead and pour it on, should make a nice eye opener.SUPER rich and creamy with lots of roasty taste...sooooo goooood

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The 12 ounce bottle poured a deep garnet colored beverage with a modest fizzy tan head that was mostly diminishing but left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was somewhat complex with notes of dark, sweet dried fruit, chocolate, coffee and caramel with a hint of aged leather in the background. The body was slightly lacking for a stout - medium - with average carbonation and a slightly watery texture. The flavor starts out sweet as you might expect. The flavors remain true to the aromas. The finish is medium-long with the sweetness giving way to a light bitterness at the end.

Pours dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma is very sweet malts with just a hint of milk (can’t think of another way to describe it). Palate is a little thin and carbonation is kind of rough. Flavor is chocolate and coffee with just a hint of milky sweetness on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep amber with tan head. The aroma has the roasted, sweet molasses and coffee of a similar stout but also that glass of milk smell of the milk stout. The flavor hunts you down from both the sweet molasses and toffee notes to the deep roasted to burnt malts. The palate seems a bit on the thin side. Somewhere hidden in the aftertaste I sense a lactose-ness that swirls around briefly. There are some hops in there too but I’m struggling to make them out.

Not a bad stout. Aroma, taste and mouthfeel are all good but nothing stands out. But not a bad stout.

[bottle at Pianeta Birra 2006] Quite tasteful, not strong but rich, full and smooth. Chocolate, coffee, reallay a "cappuccino" (milk and coffe with a head) in the world of beers...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Could be named chocolate milk stout and it would make sense to me. Rich, creamy milk chocolate delivered as beer. I liked it. Good malt backbone. lingering mocha.
