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 doesn’t stand out compared to others in the style, but it’s still tasty.

zach8270 (3701) - 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 didn’t notice the milk. Smooth and creamy.

HogTownHarry (6199) - 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!!

12 oz bottle via trade. My first beer from my parents home state of New Jersey. Pours out dark brown with a 2 inch tan head and big blotches of lacing. Aroma is malt chocolate, oats, light coffee. Flavor is mostly chocolate and oat, with some milkiness and a wee bit of coffee. Very sweet beer, but quite enjoyable, went down very easily. Would definitely drink this one again.
