From notes. 22 oz bottle brought and shared with Doug at his house on February 22. The pour is a dark, dark brown with a light brown colored head that froths up pretty decently. As it falls down to a collar, there is no lace to be found. The aroma is pretty decent. There is a big coffee and chocolate that I was hoping would be there. Itís got a light vanilla, and a ton of lactose. This actually reminds me of Kroger chocolate milk. I like it. I mean, itís somewhat what theyíre looking for, but itís a little messy. The flavor is very similar. There is a huge milky sweetness up front to go with a lighter vanilla and a hint of cocoa on the back end. There is a good coffee and roasted malt thrown in there to mix it up a touch. Itís interesting, and just like the nose, itís a little messy. The mouth feel is a little light, but has a nice soft carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly milky and heavy in the coffee. There is a light cocoa and itís pretty decent. I was happily surprised by this one. Well done.

650ml bottle from Beer Bazaar shared across the group on Christmas Eve. Milk stout for certain - thick and lactose-y. Caramel. Cocoa. Some vanilla, but the cottage cheesy lactose became cloying. 13.5

Aroma is slight vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, a touch of booze which is weird, lactose. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, poured thin. Taste is lactose, a nice mix of vanilla and chocolate, followed by coffee and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is slightly thin, medium body but soft carbonation, lingering aftertaste. Overall, itís pretty good.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle Purchased at Binnyís in Downers Grove, IL Pours pitch black with a very small fizzy tan head around the rim of the glass. Nose of coffee, vanilla, roast, char, sweet baking chocolate. very nice. Flavors exhibit most of the roast char and baking chocolate. Some lite coffee long after the finish, but its not that pronounced. The vanilla beans are MIA if you ask me. Long coca, vanilla, and slightly roasty finish. very nice!

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big coffee, dark fruit, and espresso bean into a bit of caramel, toffee notes and slight smoky tones. Taste was a mix of coffee, dark fruit, dark chocolate, hints of caramel, finishing fairly sweet, slightly roasted.

dense beige head leaves lacing. coffee coloured. aroma is lots of coffee like cold brew, roasted malts. taste is coffee, vanilla, milkchocolate, caramel with a sweet aftertaste. rather dense body, soft carbonation. nice and very coffee forward, but the sweetness gets a bit tiresome to drink after a while.bottle 65cl / #458

Bomber. Darkest brown in color with a tan head. Big coffee chocolate aroma. Hyper itís right. Huge coffee flavor as well, not a whole lot more than that. Fairly thin body with average carbonation. Pretty good.
