Pours a jet black color with a small tan head. The aroma is of sweet roasted malt with minor notes of coffee. The flavor was of coffee with light notes of sweet chocolate milk. The body was medium with a light bitter aftertaste. Overall it was good.

Non-nitro version. I prefer this version, as the flavor of the nitro version overpowers the sweetness that I love in the regular version. The sweetness, roastyness and moderate body combine to make a great milk stout.

Last time I drank this was in 2010 and according to my notes then I didn’t really care for it much and it shows to have been 5.3% ABV. Looking at it today it still looks like your average stout and smells pretty average. Has the chocolate malts as expected and it is very sweet. Overall not a bad brew so not sure what changed since last time I tried this. Got this as part of a sampler pack this time around so may have to take a look at getting a six of it next time at the store.

Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, mild chocolate, chocolate kids cereal. Taste is creamy, roasted malts but the creaminess adds a vanilla flavor I don’t care for.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @home, cellared for 10 months. Pours opaque black with thick creamy diminishing brown head. Very good lacing, medium to full body, oily texture, rich mouthfeel, average carbonation, average alcohol, bitter-sweet and slightly dry finish with average sweet aftertaste . Strong malty aromas, chocolate, roasty malt, hints of coffee, brown sugar, and licorice. Medium to strong sweetness on the tongue coming from lactose, medium bitterness from citrus hops, orange peel. Deliciously paired with a bar of Happy Cows Milka chocolate (alpine milk and white chocolate). I’m very pleased. Outstanding!

12 oz nitro poured hard into a snifter. Pitch black with a finger and a half of khaki head. The Aroma on this beer is a little weak. Smells like chocolate, hints of coffee and lactose. The mouth feel on this beer is insane. It’s unbelievable how creamy they got this beer without using a widget. Taste is equally mind blowing. So pleasant. No taste of alcohol at all. Chocolate and slight coffee on the front end and lactose on the back end. Incredible beer.
