3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour. Aroma is full of Rich, roasted malts. Flavor is a healthy mix of coffee, malts, faint chocolate and very faint hop undertones.

12 bottle pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some corn I’m afraid. Very light-bodied. Light roast flavor, some sweetness like shortbread. Just eh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Sweet Stout that isn’t very smooth. It has a sharpness to the carbonation that forces me to downgrade just a little.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a good off-white foam. I, however, did not like this one. The coffee/cocoa flavors are very overpowering and it is not easy to drink. The finish is unpleasantly dry. Others at the bar who tried this agreed with me. Just another over-the-top micro brew whose color promises a lot, but whose flavor leaves a lot to be desired.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from local restaurant. Pours black with a creamy tan head leaving some lacing. Aroma has some roast, cocoa and lactose. Taste is sweet cocoa, some lactose and some roast. Not too sweet, as the bitterness fights in. Medium bodied with no real alcohol presence. Finishes sweet and bitter, with lactose. Decent offering, not badly done for style. 13.4

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a very dark brow - nearly black - with a light beige head that quickly faded to lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts. Taste was also of roasted malts with hints of smokiness and coffee and a mild to moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, a very drinkable and smooth milk stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Milwaukee Ale House.
The beer is black with a small beige cap. Roast and chocolate, slightly sweet. Really straightforward beer. Easy drinking and sessionable. Smooth on the palate, finishing with just a hint of lactic character. A tad sweet with some chocolate milk characteristics. One of the better beers from MKE.

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.
