COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Milk, sugar and oats give this full-bodied dark ale additional creamy body and smoothness with just a suggestion of roasted malt character. The sweetness has hints of chocolate flavor that lasts from start to finish.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On tap at GTMW. Poured hazy deep brown with a well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet chocolate and toasted black malts accented by a little vanilla.. presented decently enough for the style. The flavor found even sweeter chocolates, some black patent, and caramel at the core with light overall roast.. just a touch smoky.. again OK. Too sweet on the palate and well-carbonated.. balance was alright.. most certainly drinkable.

deyholla (7017) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of lactose with backing chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor starts strong with lactose but has more roast and chocolate in the finish.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy cola brown brew with a creamy and lumpy light tan head that has some good retention and some sticky lacing. Aroma of toasted oatmeal malt, chocolate, sweet cream, lactose and some flowery hops. Taste is full-bodied, smooth, creamy with flavors of mild dark oatmeal malt, some dry molasses, lactose, and chocolate. Finish has a slight dry malt aftertaste that turns into a semi-sweet vanilla and chocolate flavor. The lactose is present in this milk stout.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Deep dark brown with a small, small bubbled tan head. Caramel and roasted barley aromas. Sweet roasted malt, light lactose sweetnes and slightly burnt toffee flavors. Dry slightly bitter finish. Again fizzy in feel.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Imperial pint Draft at Moosejaw. Opaque black with a steady thin beige-brown head. Sweet malty milkshake aroma. Medium bodied, done quite nicely and true to style. Smooth chocolate tones, some lactose creaminess. Straightforward.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Growler courtesy of Skyview. Black color with a medium head. Sweet malt aroma and lots of lactose sweetness. The milk backs off a bit in the taste, but the overall sweetness and slick malt are still there. Just a little bit of an English earthy hop bitterness to finish it off.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2009
On tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest 2009. Dark brown with a medium beige head that provides minimal lacing. Aroma of dark roasted malt, lactose and mild chocolate. Taste of lactose, roasted malt, mild chocolate and mild hops. Mildly chewy on the palate but not bad overall.

madvike (2907) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at the brewpub - Black pour with a tan ring of head. Nose is milky roast with hints of whiskey. Roastier than I had expected. Taste is the same with the same roast/lactose combo and dark chocolate, finishing with some whiskey notes. A bit thin body, thought the carbonation creams it up a bit. Not surprised this is their highest rated regular--solid stuff.

MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Black pour, small light tan head soapy bubbles. Thin palate, especially for a stout. Aroma was lightly toasty hint of coffee kind of bitterness and a touch of chocolate. Underwhelming flavor some light roast, touch of bitter coffee some light milk chocolate in the aftertaste. A very forgettable stout that had some potential that it appears just was not well executed.

Date: May 4, 2012 Mode: Growler Source: Compliments of Jim from the brewery Description: Opaque dark brown pour with minimal head and spotty lacing. Aroma was roasted malt, sweet chocolate and cream (lactose). Taste starts a little sweet, then moves to the roasted malt and finishes sweet and creamy. Palate was smooth and medium bodied.
