Big bold robust coffee scents. Taste is similar, lots of coffee with a bit of chocolate. Has a big bitter finish, mouth feel isn't as creamy as I thought. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

December 15, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Dark brown pour with some head. Aroma was chocolate and lactose. Taste was a little bit coffee and milk chocolate.

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.

Draft at Revolution (got a growler to go home also). Pour dark brown/black with dark tan head. Aroma of roast and heavy chocolate. Rich and sweet chocolate flavor. I thought it was a nicely done stout.

Enjoyed on tap at Sheffield’s in Chicago, IL after seeing Will Johnson play @ Schubas. This stuff was exceptionally good. Appearance creamy and pitch black. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, a bit of nuts, coffee, pretty appealing. Taste was fantastic. I didn’t take notes while having this, just remembered this being great.

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

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2012
I liked this one, from the start the aroma gave off a soft cocoa aroma with some light roasted malts as well. This sweet stout is very creamy and full of dark chocolate flavors, leading to a smooth bitter finish. Thanks for the share - you know who you are.

Bottle from Gentiles. Poured dark brown with tan head. Aroma of choc lactose. Light carb med bod. Chocy taste balanced taste.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Thin-ish body from the pour, certainly brown (not black) in color. Good lace, not much head. Some lacto sugars in the nose, though they are entirely absent in the taste. A pretty good (basic) stout, nothing special here.

OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Thanks for the share, Markwise. Nose is chocolate/cocoa, some light roast, and a faint sweetness. Pour is dark brown. Tan head. Taste is sweet roasted malt with some nice cocoa and chocolate flavors. Sweet and delicious.
