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.

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!

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.

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.

Look: pours a thin black. Tan head, very thick and pillowy. See brown hues around the edge. Smell: chocolate. Roasted malts. Sweetness. Slight alcohol burn. Taste: big roasted malts. Coffee. Bitter chocolate. Feel: slightly thin for a stout. Medium low carbonation. Overall: decent beer. Not as chocolatey as I like but still a good beer. First drank: home 4/12/15 Vintage:

Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and the sweetness of lactose. Taste is roasted malt, lactose. The balance of lactose and roasted malt just hit it right for me. Wonderful One of the better milk stouts I’ve had. Creamy. Nice lacing.

AWISLguy (2082) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2015
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

ARH (1045) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2014
22oz bomber poured into a tulip glass. Soft, but present aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and lactose sugar are noticeable. There’s also a slight hint of bourbon-like alcohol in there. It pours a clear and oily dark cola brown color with a light, soapy, light brown head. The head reduces down to a medium thick, sudsy ring with a filmy and soapy surface. A very light soapy lace is left behind. The taste is a medium sweet with a touch of bitter. The beer is a buzzy, creamy and stick, full bodied beer with notes of chocolate, cola, and a hint of nuts. The finish is grainy and slightly woody with caramel and a touch of alcohol warmth. The aftertaste is fairly clean with a light licorice and toast quality.

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.
