3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This stout pours a deep black like a stout should but is markedly lacking in the head department. The nose is nice though w/ a fresh, coffee-like roasted malt taste. This is complimented by some sweetness once tasted. Rich and full bodied w/ just slightly prickly carbonation. This is tasty stuff that really grows on you as it warms. It gets sweeter w/o tasting too thick. Might be a little sweet to be a true session stout but it invites you to linger over it a little bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a dark brown color with a nice one finger tan head that retained well. Aroma has roasted malt, lactic sweetness, light coffee, and chocolate. Mouth feel is on the light side of medium and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor brings in a bit more coffee, lactic sweetness, lightly roasted malt, milk chocolate, and the finish brings them all together nicely. They have nailed the style here and the balance of roast, malt, and sweetness is at the right level to let the lactic side do it’s thing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 4/10/12 from a capped 12oz bottle received in a BIF. Pours an opaque cola brown with an average tan head that leaves fairly thick lacing. The nose is classic milk stout with a creamy chocolate aroma, and a hint of nutty dark chocolate with some roasted coffee underlying. The flavor is mostly dry with the creamy chocolate up front, moving to nutty dark chocolate and a touch of roasted coffee bean bitterness. The body is full and creamy with average, very smooth carbonation, and a long creamy chocolate and lightly nutty finish.

On tap at the brewery. This is this brewery’s strength, a really nice milk stout with a nice sweetness but also a mellowing bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle that pours a dark black cola color with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of roast, chocolate, some vanilla, and a touch of lactose. All the aromas were in the flavor, but just a weaker version, chocolate however did stand out more than the other flavors. Thin on the palate for a stout, almost reminded me of a soda.

On tap at the Milwaukee Brewing Co. Pours near black with a creamy brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet dark grains with some sweet creamy chocolate and a hint of roast. Flavor begins with sweet chocolate and sweet dark bread with a hint of backing roast and coffee to cut the sweetness.
