Very sweet initial flavor, the lactose sugar does calm down quickly and leaves slightly bitter aftertaste. Which just makes you want to drink again. Had bottled from local liquor store as alternative to Guinness. Very much want to try the nitro version.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pours a deep brown, almost black, with a full, creamy beige head; moderate lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium bodied, slightly oily, clean finish with just a hint of bitterness lingering. Overall, a great stout. It looks phenomenal and drinks easy.
