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.

On tap @ Black Finn. Dark brown, tan head. Roasty with medium sweetness, lightly creamy, quite light considering the ABV actually, but nicely balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Sake no Taniguchi, served in a snifter. I’d been meaning to try Revolution Brewing’s Mad Cow Milk Stout (7.5%) for awhile android finally got my hands in a bottle.
The ABV is kind of high for a Milk Stout but it pours a beautiful inky black with a tan head.
The aroma is savoury dark chocolate and molasses. Full bodied and smooth.
The taste is savoury, a bit roasty, smokey, nutty and rich milk chocolate.
This is a fine example of a robust or imperial milk stout.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2015 bottle poured into a snifter. Aroma was faint yet picked up some sweet chocolate. Appearance is dark brown almost black with a one finger light tan head. Taste is a mildly sweet milk chocolate with a very light roasted flavor. Has a milk like presence to it. Palate is very nice with a good balance between overall vicosity and carbonation. Overall one of the top Milk Stouts I have ever had and worth seeking out. Cheers!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark with a good head retention that was khaki brown in color. The aroma is of lactose milk sugar, some roasted notes, and chocolate. While tasting I noticed a creamy mouth feel with a good body. There were flavors of sweet milk sugar, roasted dark malts, some caramel, hints of chocolate malts, and minor prune fruit tastes. Overall the finish is very good and the beverage was kind to my palate. This is one of the better milk stout that I have had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a three finger, fluffy tan head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, sweet malt, caramel, a little char, lactose and sweet nutty notes. Flavor is roast, chocolate, dark fruit and bread crust up front, then a big wave of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, dark caramel and lactose sweetness in the middle, finishes with lingering lactose, dark fruit, roast and chocolate, some dry leaves, piney and grassy hops. Medium to heavy body, creamy to gloopy entry, light, but very blanketing and quite sharp carbonation and gloopy to slightly dry finish. Good stuff overall, a little too gloopy, and the dark fruit notes just do not work well with the rest of the beer, or possibly and milk stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Antioch. Pours cola colored with a bit of an off-white head. Aroma has cafe au lait, simple sugar and caramelly malts. A lactose-y presence as well. Taste is of sweet caramel - overlayered - with some chocolate notes, some lactose and sugar. Quite sweet and medium bodied with alcohol. Finishes sweet with light bitterness. Long, strong and sweet. The barreled versions are better when the sweetness is cut a bit. 14.1
