3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, shining red ’round the edges,highly carbonated, prodigious cocoa head, which slims down right-quick.
Bittersweet in the nose, but minor, mostly smooth, sweetness and cream.
Taste: Smoothness reigns here, very slick, easy-going, but just enough taste to redeem it. but there’s a definite lack of character, though. That could be what they’re going for, a readily palatable stout that would please the masses. That’s good for something, but not really for me.
Yeah, I really don’t feel like knocking it, but true stout aficianados won’t miss anything if they pass this by.

Thin slick body. tasted like chocolate milk with coffee and alcohol in it. normally that would be a good thing, but for some reason this bottle had a oily kind of flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown pour, with a very short lived head. Nose is strong in malt and a light amount of coffee and cream. The taste is a sweet stout, refreshing and rich. A nice offering.

Pours a deep ruby color. A little light for a stout. Wonderful aroma. Roasted coffee and alot of creamy chocolate. Rich smooth flavor. Creamy and sweet with alot of roasted coffee bitterness. Great balance of sweet and bitter. Excellent stout.

This my friend is a good sweet stout! This beer seemed to have a good balace of nice coffee and hop aroma with a nice coffee and sweet flavor. The hop flavor is just right to balance out the bitter and sweet.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a short tan-colored head with strong lacing. Aroma is peaty, quite porter-like. Also with the flavor, it could use a touch more hops -- as it stands, it’s quite peaty which is more the characteristic of a porter. In any case, the milk sugar is indeed a unique element and perhaps contributes to the bold mouthfeel. The experience is sort of like a cardboard container of flavored milk like they sell in Thailand.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My girlfriend ordered this and I had a couple of sips. Very malty and, uh, milky. Too sweet for my taste, but I can see how others would enjoy her. Interestingly, the swallow is quite smooth.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Near black pour with hoppy aroma. Light coffee, bitter chocolate, tangerine, resulting in Easter chocolate oranges washed down with enriched vanilla soymilk. Sweet on the rich and perfect mouthfeel, finishing bitter. Fantastic. Warm crystallized honey ten seconds after the swallow. Again fantastic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer pours dark brown with a dissipating tan colored head. Aroma is of chocolate and roastiness and coffee. Flavor is likewise of cold coffee, little bit of chocolate. Palate is thin. Better warmer.
