3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours opaque and black with a thin light brown head. The aroma is dark and burnt - like burnt toast with rich espresso. The flavor is bitter and rich with a little sweetness. It isn’t as sweet as some others in the style (like Mackeson). Very well balanced. Smooth rich, coffee flavor with a little hops, some yeast, and a little sweet malt. The finish is somewhat dry and bittersweet.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really like this beer! True to style. Pours with a nice foamy thick head, which, while it doesn’t last too long, does persist some. Ditto lace. Lactose just offsets the stout. Nice carbonation. Almost opaque. lingering bittersweet taste. Having this now on draft at Bodega Brew Pub, where it’s also available in bottles.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark pour with a creamy tan head – looks thick and substantial when swirled in the glass. Sweeter than a lot of stouts, but that’s to be expected for something called “Milk Stout”. Smooth and silky mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated. Slightly sweet and creamy flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours inky black, with a smallish tan colored head. Aroma is chocolate, sweet rosted malt, coffee. Flavor is the same. Palate is medium, dissapointing for a stout, mildly carbonated, sweet finish. Nothing spectacular.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An excellent dessert beer. Not hoppy. Slightly sweet. Beautiful coffee/chocolate color, a hint of oatmeal, malty. To be sipped and enjoyed next to a fire. Nice to find in places outside of Colorado, since this style isnt made by many domestic brews.

Aroma of licorice, coffee and roasted malt. Dark black, not too much head. Flavor was of roasted/burned malt and some licorice. Pretty good mouth feel; would have more complex flavors.
