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.

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 Iíve had at the mills

16 oz can to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, only better and with more chocolate. Nice and smooth on the palate. Enjoyable.

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2014
This beer pours from the can a dark smooth black. Almost looks thin. A foamy vanilla mocha colored head tops it off. A sugary toasted almond aroma. Flavors really revolve around the sugary sweetness from the milky vanilla ice cream notes mixed in with chocolate syrup. Very light overall. With its lack in overall flavors it makes up in other points. The milk chocolate flavors really leave a nice chewy layer on the mouth feel. Also surprisingly enough it feels somewhat thick. Which really pulls anything together that this had going for it. In the end a light stout that you can really drink quick... if thatís what youíre into.

Can. This is a rich thick stout with a sweetish start and a tart burnt coffee/darl chocolate finish.

On draft at Alexandriaís 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.

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 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.

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. Itís pretty decently made.
