COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout is not as bitter as the Sacri-licious Stout. It is brewed with milk sugar(lactose) to impart a fuller body and sweeter palate.

For all those people that rank the aroma low, I offer these kind words: "it smells better than a hooker’s chocolate starfish at the end of her shift."

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Deep opaque brown body, thin tight beige head. Rich roasty nose with cocoa and woody acidity. Roasty body with light lactic sweetness and a woody, acidic bite in the finish. Subtle sweetness but it enhances an average stout.

ICEatALAMO (938) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. The aroma is a little malty, but not getting much more out of it than that. The taste is decent for a stout, but not very complex and a little thinner than I like my stouts to be. Can taste a little bit of the milk and has a nice sweetness to it.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, smoked malt, and a hint of lactose. Flavor of lactose with bitter chocolate, also there is sort of an odd tartness. A decent stout but odd tasting and the lactose and chocolate malt flavors did not quite come together. 6/4/6/3/13 [3.2/5]

ChopsandBailey (10) - USA - OCT 28, 2009
Had a glass on tap. Very thin khaki head with nice consistent lacing. Very dark smooth color. Not very aromatic at all, just a hint of sweet malt. Flavor was very nice, malty and sweet with a mocha finish. If your ever at the Mills you have to check this out.

cwondo (24) - Rochester, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Tap. Dark brown with almost no light getting through. Tan head lingered with nice lacing. Thick, malty, sweet aroma with not much else. Tasted very sweet and malty, lingering vanilla extract taste. A bit of tartness to it. Very nice creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty light for a stout. The best beer I’ve had at the mills

lampeno420 (320) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2008
A little on the thin side, but good flavors all the way around. Liked the milk and creamyness it had. Just a little coffee in it to make it have a stout feel. Easy drinkable and nice balance. I’d drink a few more of these.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
MiBGF 07: Nearly opaque with a nice creamy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of bittersweet and milk chocolates, roasty malts, plum, smoke , lactic sourness and a bit yeasty. The taste has a nice creamy sweetness supported by mild acidity and lactic twang. The finish displays some coffee and hop bitterness. The mouth feel is creamy and smooth. This was a very solid brew and worth a try.

Pailhead (4808) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2005
On tap: Dark chocolate and roasted coffee aroma. Dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head. Okay lacing. Real light up front. Light roasted malt. NIce roasted coffee and dark chocolate finish. Light hops in the finish. Seems a little thin for a stout.
