At Goodfellow’s on Mackinac Island. Pours black with a tan head and aroma of roasted malt and creamy cocoa. Taste is sweet and creamy, of cocoa, roasted malt, and milk chocolate with a sweet, creamy finish. Solid, enjoyable stout

A dark pour from a pint sized can produces a frothy tan head on top that leaves minimal lacing while drinking. The aroma consists of toasted oats, creamy caramel, and chocolate. This isn’t as lactic or creamy as I was expecting. Zippy carbonation, with a body that seems a shade thin. The flavors are decent but unexciting: chocolate, some roasted malt, a little sweet lactic flavor (although I was looking for this), and light coffee grounds enter the mix. Easy to drink with no major flaws, but very forgettable too.

July 3, 2013 - can shared by Joe. Dark brown pour with limited head. Chocolate and cocoa in the aroma and taste. Little bit of lactose in there as well to give this a thin milkshake type experience.

Big can from Oxford beer store. Nose is malt and sweet toffee. Somewhat thin for a milk stout but still smooth. Bitter coffee notes overpower the cocoa which is ok with me. Limited milk and lactose sweetness which is disappointing. This isn't a great milk stout and I was hoping for more.

Draft from a somewhat local establishment. Dark in color, with thin tan head. Smell was slightly sweet. Smooth, creamy/milky taste with cocoa. Finish was of bitter coffee. Very drinkable, but would like it better without the finish.

16 oz can. Pours a very dark brown with a medium foamy head that fades normally and leaves good lacing. Great appearance. Lactose sweet aroma of chocolate milk, coffee, and some light caramel. Taste is solid. Sweet iced mocha coffee, light bitterness in the finish. A little caramel comes through too. Thin to medium body that’s smooth and a little creamy. Overall, pretty nice. A little sweet but I’d drink this again.

16 oz can to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, only better and with more chocolate. Nice and smooth on the palate. Enjoyable.
