From a bottle poured dark brown with a good amount of head. Nice strong sweet toasted malty flavor with a lasting finish.

I donít care what the ingredient list says, I donít get how theyíre calling this a sweet stout. tap @ RnH: dark black pour, arouma of oats and coffee. Dark roasted malts backed by a nice hoppy kick. Creamy mouthfeel. finishes with some astringency. A simple, poorly constructed "sweet" stout thatís not really that sweet.

Nothing objectionable here, just not very good for this style. The aroma is roasty, oats. The appearance is deep brown, red hue, tan head, a little thin looking. The flavor is roasty, coffee, bitter dark chocolate, oats. The fin ish is sweet, and bittered by roasted malts. Medium/thin mouthfeel, watery. Decent and enjoyable, but too thin for this style.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2010
12oz bottle. Small tan head atop brown-black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, milk chocolate, some coffee, oat. Taste is moderately sweet, lactose, coffee, milk chocolate, roast, light oatmeal, faint earthy, cinnamon. Light-medium body, light acidity but fairly smooth. It doesnít stand out compared to others in the style, but itís still tasty.

bottle poured a black in color with a thin brown head. aroma has lactic chocolate, sweetness, light roast, and malts. mouth feel coats well and the carbonation is low. flavor gets bolder with the roasted malt, nuts, chocolate, lactic sweetness, and metallic bitterness on the finish.

zach8270 (3219) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black pour with a creamy tan head. Lightly roasted malts in the aroma along with some cocoa and cream. Flavor begins with roasted malts but then quickly turns to a very sweet and chocolaty flavor. More roasted malts come in near the middle followed up by a heavily roasted malt finish. Oats give a little sweetness, but really didnít notice the milk. Smooth and creamy.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle ( 12oz ). Opaque black, thin-looking with a large frothy tan head. Dry, moderately lactic and herbal aroma, hint of raisin, coffee and nutshell. Taste is nutty, milky, roasty, somewhat sweet but with good balancing dry bitterness, chocolate and a hint of mint - light alcohol. Slick, smooth, creamy mouthfeel, not at all astringent or acidic, really lovely on the tongue - really nice for the style, pitchers please!!

BelgianBeerGal (3014) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Traded bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a milk chocolate head that settles quickly into a ring. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and even a little bourbon? Flavour is mostly bitter baking chocolate and a touch of hops. Pleasant.
