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....

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.

Large, milky brown head of fine bubbles. Settles slowly with light carbonation. Roasty aroma with a bit of coffee, milk chocolate and light hops. Color is a very dark brown. Soft and creamy in the mouth with loads of roasted grains, light bitterness and some more milk chocolate. Finish is smooth and creamy with a nice lingering bitterness. A decent lighter stout and one that will please the masses.
