3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger foamy tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that eventually disappears. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, light coffee, cream, herbal, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good dark/roasted malt balance; and decent strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, light floral and roasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a bit. Good balance of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid milk stout. Good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; and very smooth to drink. An enjoyable offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can served in a snifter.
Pours is a deep dark brown, opaque in the glass, with a tan head that has limited size and retention but leaves decent lacing.
Aroma: sweet malts and chocolate
Flavor: lightly and appropriately sweet, with a richer and darker malt base than I would have guessed from the smell alone. Still, not quite as robust as I’d like.
Feel: medium-full body; medium-light carbonation.
O: a satisfying milk stout in a can.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from a trade. Nose is big in cocoa and fudge. Light milky creamy sensation. Pitch black pour. Small white head. Taste is initially bitter, seemingly thin mouthfeel. Second sip doesn’t show much more. Just meh at best. Seems to be lacking in everything advertised.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from drakes party center. Pours black with a shitload of khaki lacing. Coates the glass with it too. I get a bit of the cocoa on the nose. There’s some lactose as well. I don’t know if it quite suggests a milkshake but it is a solid milk stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer out of the can with a short lived foamy tan head. Big chocolaty with some dusty grains. Molasses sweetness with chocolate, vanilla, lactose, roasted grains and a bitter coffee bean finish. This is pretty tasty and even better as it comes out of a can.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
