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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 don’t favor stouts with heavy dark fruit flavors, but the prune aspect isn’t overly sweet here, & the earthy tobacco elements balance everything nicely. A nice 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.

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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Love this milk stout from revolution. Strong black coffee flavor and bitterness with a milk backbone. Had this out of a bomber at home

growler. aroma is sharp chocolate, general roast, seems balanced immediately. flavor is sizzling cocoa and only a trace of the sweetness expected, easily quaffable and devoid of cloying notes. mushy chocolate pleases.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from atom. Pours a deep brown with thin khaki head. Aroma is light roast coffee with minimal milk chocolate. Taste is light cocoa milk with a thin coffee bean. Overall the silky milk makes this but a little thin in the mouth.
