3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Guest tap @ the Smokehouse. Robust floral nose of coffee, slight spice & alcohol, and
some left over caramel. The brew is black (a stout black, imagine that). The creamy beige
head is mostly diminishing with light lace. The brew is very non-offensive, with a sharp
and short finish. Translation: kinda small. Would be a great first stout to try for the
newbie. The body is full and lively almost to the point of being fizzy. I like em softer,
with more character.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An enjoyable stout to say the least, especially for the nice price. The aroma had a roasty, cocoa, coffee aroma to it. Apperance was black, nothing special or unusual there. Flavor was a bit oxidizes, lactic, but still roasted and creamy enough to be enjoyed. A nice beer for sure.

Serves up a delightful aroma of lightly roast malt, and chocolate milk. The color is a dark black with a rough patching of head on top. The initial flavor is sweet with a small reminder in the aftertaste of coffee. Again lightly roasted malt is more noticeable from the drink itself.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very pleasing and smooth. Dark garnet color, thin head. Aroma mildly roasted but restrained by a chocolately goodness. Smooth sweet palate, soft body, a touch of semisweet chocolate and mild roast. Mouthfeel is just a *touch* on the thin side. Easy finish and very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark black with a thin mocha brown head. Smells and tastes mainly of coffee, with an unique taste I assume is the lactose. Not quite on par with the best sweet stouts I have had (Sam Smith’s Oatmeal and Rogue’s Chocolate) but definitely good and unique - will buy again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark black in color with a great off white head that stays thinned out like a sheet, but stays built up around the edge of the glass. Smells sweet, like coffee. Tastes like coffee, light chocolate, typical stout flavors, but you can definitely find the milk in this one also..not typical. Mouthfeel is very much like milk, I almost forgot that I was drinking beer. I think its just a mental thing, considering the commercial description says that its "milk sugar", in the beer. It is a good spin on a stout. I liked this, and you should too.
