Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a black color with an enormous creamy-soapy brown head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish and toasty with notes of vanilla, marshmallow and chocolate. The flavor was toasty and mildly bitter with chocolate, vanilla and a lactic note. Long toasty chocolate and almost marshmallow finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pint can from VE. Nose nice dark roast, and surprisingly dry to my sniffer. Pour darker-than-cola brown with a large and foamy tan head. Light-watery body with low sweetness (surprising for style) and a high level of roast, not too much scorch, more on the nuttier side. Lightly airy, minimal fruit in the background, and some booze seeping through. Sort of aloof, distances itself from you, and as we all know, we’re often attracted to the things we can’t have. Like the novelty here, though they call it a milk stout, a lot more like Beamish or Guinness than a syrupy-chocolaty mouth-filler. Dangerously repeatable, would love to have this again.

From a can the look of this borders on a 5, nicely done without a widget. Fairly friendly gentle stout aroma. Head fades. Feel is hollow at times. Smooth going and easy, could have less of an apparent alky personality. Roasty stout personality. Hope nobody thinks this is going to taste anything like a milkshake, heheh.

On draft at Alexandria’s in Findlay. Pours a stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some sweet chocolate, some vanilla, an caramel with hints of lactose. Flavor starts off with sweet chocolate then moves to vanilla then to some lactose and maybe some dark chocolate. Light in body and lingering sweetness on the finish.
