3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep and dark with a nose dominated by roasted barley, this is quite a drinkable brew. However, for a milk stout, this beer has too much roasted barley in the finish, giving it a bit of an earthy, burnt after taste. Still, quite credible, but give me a Duckrabbit milk stout any day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head. Smells of roasted malt, coffee flavors and bitter-sweet chocolate.
Roasty coffee flavors lightly sweet. The sweetness and lactose reveals itself slowly as it warms. Gets creamier and a lingering roasty bitterness in the aftertaste. Tasty stuff. I love cream/milk stouts and this one delivers what I’m looking for, a nice roasty/creamy balance.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle pours a dark cola color with a very thin mocha-colored head. The aroma is very slight, hinting at chocolate. The taste starts off with just a half-second of hop kick that fades rapidly into a very earthy, smokey and chocolate-driven finish. Not much bitterness at all. The palate is very creamy despite the suprisingly active carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2007 Pours very dark brown with nice thick whitish/brown head. Sweet aroma of mocha caramel malts. Flavor is very well-rounded nice semi-sweetness up front with a hint of bitterness in the finish. A little light bodiied for a stout, but it does go down nicely. Overall, very enjoyable.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, from Frugal McDoogals Beer Warehouse, Nash-TN. Dark pour, nice brown head that sticks around for most of the beer. (I guess that depends on how quickly you’re drinking, though!) Sweet aroma, flavor of a jamocha milkshake almost....finishes VERY smooth. Very light as far as a Stout is concerned. Wow, I was really impressed with this one-right up my alley!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled on 3/1/06, from Julio’s Liquors (MA)) Pours dark cola brown with about 2" of rocky tan head that recedes to about 1/4". Aroma of a chocolate milkshake with coffee. Mouthfeel very smooth, almost silky. Webby rings of lacing. Flavor is just about like aroma - chocolate shake and coffee, lightly sweet. Really nice except I didn’t like the bit of grassiness in the finish. Lightly bitter.

Initially very roasted. Strong sense of burnt coffee and dark chocolate. Milkiness comes later in a blend of spices and caramel. aftertaste lingers with a mild malt flavor. Very enjoyable.

(Tap) Pours black with small head. Creamy and rich. Sweet, but by no means cloying. Roasted coffee notes.
This one had a very malty and smooth aftertaste. Very enjoyable.
