Our full-bodied stout with milk sugar. The piney and orange citrus hops find themselves paired with roasted, coffee, and dark chocolate balance. Werd.

Sampler at Standard Market. Okay, my review gives this beer a ranking: Black in the rounded sampler glass, a thin yet bubbly ring of foam. Dark chocolate milk nose. Taste has a nice sweetness and noticeable alcohol like a cordial. Also chocolate again, and threads of vanilla. The usual bitter stout malt in the background.

22 oz bottle from trader Joe’s. Giant tan head which stays four a long time. Smells really good, hoppy with caramel and molasses. Not too much going on from a flavor perspective, it is understated. Some hop kick. Good, would drink again.

Bottle. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose/taste of milk sugar, coffee, cocoa, piney hops, resin and roast chocolate. Medium body.

Aroma is yeast, candy/sugar and a hint of dark malts. The flavor is dark malts, chocolate, candy/sugar and fruit/citrus/acidity in the finish. Noticeable hops in a milk stout is interesting but not something I’ll have again, it just doesn’t work well in the style.

Bottled: This stout is hopped forward with piney and citric overtones along with moderate roast and mocha. Some lacto notes but much more reserved that the last beer, likely caused by the abundance of bitterness. I like but it is damn close to being a Black IPA plus some "pickle" notes start to show as it warms.

A perfect american milk stout. Just the right balance of coffee, milk, and bitterness. Smells like coffee and pours black with a sticky tan head. Really crisp and crushable. Love this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, shared at game night. Dark brown with a light brown head. Lovely dark malts, semi-sweet chocolate and coffee, with a surprising dose of citrus and grassy hops in the finish. A nice hoppy sweet stout.

[Tap] Tasting notes from 12/2013. Pours a deep brown color with a thin brown head. Mild cocoa and vanilla in the nose. Sweet taste of lactose and chocolate blends with piney hops. Soft carbonation. Good stuff.

A deep dark stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, nice coffee chocolate malt with espresso overtones, grassy resinous hops, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet chocolate malt with caramel and coffee, resinous hops, well balanced, excellent. On tap at Timothy O’toole’s.

Enjoyed on tap at Emporium Arcade Bar in Chicago, IL. Appearance is pitch black with a rich off white head. Aroma of piney hops, chocolate, lactose, sweetness. Taste is like a sweet black IPA, roasted chocolate notes with a pine / citrus hop profile and a touch of coffee and lactose. Pretty good stuff, definitely a sipper, but good.
