COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The combination of four different malts, along with a low hop level creates a deep dark beer featuring rich, sweet roasted flavors. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) adds complexity, body, and a residual sweetness lending a smooth creamy texture to this full-flavored brew. Once a Seasonal offering in the pub, now prominently featured due to popular demand.

From the can so a little tinny. Dark black with tan head that disappears quickly. Chocolate and coffee. Smooth but not as smooth as some Ive had lately.

Nice head but died off quickly. Very black. Thin to pour. Not much aroma. Sweet and strong.

Can. Pours deep dark brown with some brown head that fades to a ring in the glass. Nose is creamy chocolates, toasted malts, caramels, more toasty and biscuity malts. Flavor is toasted malts, sweet sticky lactose and some chocolates. Pretty solid beer.

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.

Tap...nice creamy cocoa flavor with a touch of sweetness. Easy drinking and one of the better RM offerings.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6537) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2016
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.

Draught at Pour House. Light desert like stout with some chocolate and cream and a fairly light body.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2015
Pour on tap at HopCat, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark milk sugar, some chocolate, coffee, hints of spice into a bit of caramel, slight toffee, slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, hints of spice into some slight caramelized sugar, hints of lactose, finishing sweet.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2015
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 baker’s 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.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2015
Large sample pour of deep brown to black with full khaki head. Nose is roasted malts and sweet caramel notes with lighter sugars. Flavor is smooth caramel and milky sweetness. Lactose qualities grow as it opens. Roast and malt presence more than anything. It’s pretty decently made.
