Dark brown with red highlights with a nice of white head and some lacing. Nice roast and chocolate notes in the nose. Big chocolate flavors, nice a silky texture. Almost a little too thin for a stout but still good.

12oz bottle from JTThrilla. Thanks Jon! Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Bubbles await at the bottom taking turns racing to the surface. Nose is chocolate, roasty. Taste is thin, lactose, roasted malt, finishes bitter and lightly chocolatey in the aftertaste.

Fairly good. Very roasted, heavy chocolate. Lighter color than most stouts, but very thick and creamy. Very tasty brew, but not an easy one to drink.

I was not impressed with this beer. I wanted to like it too, especially after seeing how nice it looked when poured into the glass. Very thin body that leaves one wondering if they actually had drunk anything at all. A very forgettable brew.

Bottles from Grapevine Mkt. Pours midnight ruby red with thin toasty head. Subtly sweet stout with well rounded bitterness. Notes of carob and walnuts and (chocolate ice cream?). Very good light stout.

A good beer, and a good example of a milk stout. However, I found it was a bit too sweet for me. One or two would be ok to drink, but much more than that and the sweet taste begins to make me sick....

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light on the nose like something is missing. Pours a beautiful dark color with little to no head. The flavor is decent with the milk sugar being very prevalent. I feel the "stout" flavor is a little light. This is a good beer but does not compare to Duck Rabbit or some others of its kind.

On tap at the Brewgrass Festival in Asheville, smells creamy and chocolatey. Smooth and silky on the tongue. I voted this one for best-in-festival.

I hope it win’s the people’s choice award. so unique and good. color an amber-dark brown depending on the light. whole milk, cream, pistachio, a bit of chocolate. really silky and rich mouth-feel. loved it.
