3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Dark brown, nearly black with a creamy, swindling beige head on top. Looks a touch thin. Aroma packed with milky chocolate, mostly sweet with a hint of roasted malts in the background. Light coffee with dry undertones to blunt the sweetness towards the finish. Mouth feel is slightly thin, but still retains a moderately creamy essence which is nice. Almost silky. Flavors of sweet bakerís chocolate, roasted malt, toasted nuts, & a good bit of coffee. Not black coffee, more like "heavy cream & sugar" type coffee. Creamy milky chocolate finish with a slight roasty bitter twinge for balance. Far from cloying, actually quite drinkable. Tasty stuff.

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 Iíd like.
Feel: medium-full body; medium-light carbonation.
O: a satisfying milk stout in a can.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 thatís smooth and a little creamy. Overall, pretty nice. A little sweet but Iíd drink this again.

Decent beer. Pours a dark brown. Lightly carbonated. Rich and creamy body. Lots of chocolate and minimal roasted barley. Very sweet. Nice beer.

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.

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

Beer is much better than concept! Ugh to a milk shake rather than a beer! However, this was medium body, with a fine roasted malt and bitter chocolate flavor.

Mich Brewers Guild sample. Pours black with no head. Smell of chocolate. Taste is light chocolate flavor, but mouthfeel seems a bit thin. Slight bitterness. Only okay.
