3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
