Draft at The Brass Tap, served in a snifter. Pours a dark brown with a deep Amber hue and a centimeter off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves spots of lace. Aroma of toast, mild roast, chocolate, milk sugar, tobacco, and toffee. Flavor of chocolate, lactose, candied nuts, cream, tobacco, and mellow roast. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Good sweet stout.

JMerritt (1813) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottled. Dark brown-red with a large, bright white head that is slowly yet mostly diminishing. Malt heavy aroma is rich of roasted malt, bittersweet cocoa, molasses and mild coffee. Lightly sweet flavor with pin pricks of roasty bitterness. Extremely light carbonation, and the lactose is noticeable in the slick, lightly creamy texture. Finish has notes of bittersweet chocolate and light rye bread. A straightforward sweet stout, well made and a good representation of the style. A nice change from the imperial stouts flooding the market.

tectactoe (2021) - Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Tap @ Revolution: Deep, black center with dark ruby edges; a light beige collar rests around the edges of the brew. Aroma is outlined with a HUGE dried prune character & big, leafy tobacco notes. Large earthiness with a dark fruit, offsetting sweetness. Not what I expected from this lactose brewed milk stout, but I dig the prune-tobacco combo nonetheless. The taste is a replication of the aroma; huge notes of prune, dried dates, leafy tobacco, & some earthy char. I can detect a very moderate, dry cocoa bean flavor in the finish, but it certainly seems tertiary. I normally donít favor stouts with heavy dark fruit flavors, but the prune aspect isnít overly sweet here, & the earthy tobacco elements balance everything nicely. A nice stout.

Love this milk stout from revolution. Strong black coffee flavor and bitterness with a milk backbone. Had this out of a bomber at home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (6572) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Clear red brown color. Thin off-white head, kind of cream colored. Leaves great thicker lace. Nice milk chocolate, mild roast, mild earthy herbal aroma. Moderate sweet taste, but not cloying or sugary. Mild bitter taste, good earthy hop balance. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Nice sweet stout. Well-done.

A lactose-heavy milk stout. Very sweet, but supported by roasty bitterness and hints of chocolate. Full body. Nice, comforting.

hopscotch (9221) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle... Mostly clear, dark brown pour with mahogany highlights and a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a swirl of toffee, caramel and a light measure of mocha. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with busy carbonation. The flavor is a blend of sweet caramel, vanilla and mocha. Decadent, nourishing finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

This beer is just good. Really lactose forward with light roast cocoa, coffee, and toffee. Toasty, malty, rich and really well made. Nice beer and a good surprise.
