3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Dad as a gift. Thanks dad! Pours dark brown to black heading into the glass with a big creamy khaki brown head. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, light coffe grinds, hint of roast, don’t get much cherries. Flavor is chocolate and lactose, light roast, caramel, and some additional sweetness that I assume is some cherry, but doesn’t come across as such. Medium bodied with medium plus carbonation for the style. Pretty easy drinking and pleasant. Actually significantly better than I had expected. Worth a drink.

Notes from Pike, Reading, PA, Oct 26. Did not know what to expect when I got this bottle, with the half-naked cowgirl cartoon on it. Cherry chocolate milk stout is ambitious but I’m going to say they pulled it off. Obviously very sweet, one is enough, but it worked.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Kutztown Kutztown...... Geeeeezz that's nice!!!" (those from the area over 40 will get it). And this is incredibly nice. Pours an almost opaque black with the deepest of mahogany fringes; a nice tan head that leaves light suds lacing. The nose is of deep chocolate and lightly toasted malt. Flavors delve wonderfully into the sweet lactose milk sugars, exposing dark chocolate, light roasts, luscious milk chocolate, and finishing with a chocolate-covered cherry and perfectly balancing bittering hop. Never cloying, the carbonation is soft and the mouthfeel is velvety, silky smooth. Awesome, awesome impy milk stout. "Geeeeeezz that's nice!"

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a ark brown body, almost completely opaque, under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is rich and chocolaty with just a light hint of cherry. Lots of roast and sweet burnt caramel. The flavor is rather sweet with lots of milk chocolate and cocoa powder. The cherry is pretty well hidden, but emerges a bit late on the finish. The roast works really well and balanced the sweetness a bit and keeps it from becoming too cloying. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with some sticky caramel and residual sugars. Soft gentle fizzy carbonation. Pretty tasty beer, among the better beers I’ve had from these guys thus far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice black pour w/ a lovely tan head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma is very stout like w/ roasted notes shining through w/ maybe a hint of cherry. The taste has much more cherry flavor than the aroma. It’s like a fruit stout but it works pretty well! It has very good texture & mouthfeel. Well done!
