3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. Some nice roast malt flavors, but I’m torn because this is in no way a sweet stout or milk stout. It’s a good roasty porter. I’d give it above a 3 for flavor, but a 2.5 for style at best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown coloured body with a muddy brown and ruby tint near the bottom , all with a super thick, frothy, seven centimetre tall brown head. Aroma of yeast, milk, cream, raisins, nuts, earth and some light pit fruits. Medium-bodied; Chewy creamy and milky flavour with a lot of lactic notes, some nuts and earth, but a lot of roasted malt flavour showing at first and a good deal of sweetness from peanuts and hazelnuts also around the corner. Aftertaste shows some deeper malty and earthy finishes and a rich sweetness from oatmeal and some lighter cherry and fruit flavours. Overall, a rather full flavoured stout or porter with a light finish and a very creamy flavour throughout - nice and well-rounded. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Binny’s in Chicago (South Loop), Illinois on 21-August-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 30-May-2014.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle picked up in northern Wisconsin - taste was good, a very respectable roasty coffee/chocolate flavor with enough smoothness to claim milk stout status, but lost major points for the ridiculous amount of head. Seriously, I could have filled 6 glasses with one bottle, so voluminous was the foam. Even drinking straight from the bottle the foam filled my mouth making it difficult to enjoy the flavor.

A decent mill stout. Strong beer with a smokey finish. Pours very dark like Guinness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Perhaps I should just stop drinking milk stouts. They look good and smell but have a disappointingly thin and watery consistency and flushed out taste with just a wisp of flavor. Polish Moon follows that formula plus is burdened with a cute name (which almost always means a lousy product).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown. Smells like deep roasted coffee and milk. A nice roasted flavor with milk sweetness, silky and thick. Easy drinking and tasty.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Roasty burnt toast aroma. Pours very dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Very smooth. A little bit of coffee slight bitterness. Toasty. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very appealing pour with a feint aroma. First taste that hits you is water, then it has an aftertaste of coffee with cream and a hint of chocolate. The lack of flavor is disappointing

Draft at trader Todd's. bubbly black pour with bubbly brown head. Sweet taste with chocolate backbone. A little lite after what I drank before but exceeded my expectations.
