Pours a black from a bottle, aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor similar, with that sour milk flavor of a milk stout. Thin as a milk stout always is. Meh.

Bittersweet chocolate with some coffee aroma in the background. Not to heavy or intense, it’s very smooth for a stout. Very drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at DIA. Almost black in appearance with a lacy tan head. Aroma of milk sugar, shitty coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, roasted grain, lactose and light earth. Similar flavor, with a medium body and a creamy feel, a little thin for my liking. I had heard this was pretty good so I was a bit disappointed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark ruby brown color, frothy beige head, cobweb lace. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt that adds light fizz on the swallow, followed by toasted chocolate as it moves to a lightly bittered finish. Outstanding example of a cream stout, full-bodied without being heavy. Highly recommended.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. BBD Dec 2015. Pours a thick, well retained, beige head, with heavy, almost Belgian lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body......nose is roasted malts with cocoa, chocolate, hints of coffee, no esters, light herbal hops......taste is lightly sweet, with mild toffee/caramel notes, heavier cocoa, chocolate, cereal notes, all from the malts becoming bitter from roasted malt and light hop tones.....mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, creamy texture from carbonation. This is a relatively dry version of a sweet stout with the result that it is a tiny bit astringent and mildly heavy on the cereal side. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7
