3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost black in color with a finger of off-white head. The nose is heavy on the roasted malt and chocolate with a nice touch of lactose, too. Maybe even a touch of vanilla? A fairly sweet nose, but quite nice. The flavor is not as nice. A little too much roast which comes across as harsh on the palate. Good coffee flavors and a moderate lactose sweetness, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep brown/black, slight ruby edges, with a very thin khaki head. Nose is milk chocolate and lightly roasted grain and almost a touch of banana in there. Taste is really sweet, with a light roasted bitterness. Palate is on the light side of medium, smooth, but prickly from substantial carbonation. Not bad, but I think I want more body and balance, and definitely less carbonation.

Milk stout, also called ‘cream’ or ‘sweet’ stout, is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Because lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer. YUM!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice dark brown/black with small, dissipating tan head. Smell is faintly of coffee and the sweetness from the lactose. Taste is heavy on the coffee and dark chocolate, with a sweet lingering aftertaste. Nice beer overall, but lacking just a bit, like most of the Southern Tier brews.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark and oily. Head non existent. Faint aroma. Alcohol and carbonation of the bat gives way to a decent stout flavor, but lacks the smooth mouthfeel that a sweet stout should deliver.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 mL bottle. Looks the part, although the beige head is a little thin. Cappucino stands out in the nose, but there is a real sharpness that stands out above everything. Underneath is some booze and a little chocolate milk. Flavour is smooth and creamy, with chocolate milk and a little roast. Not big or complex, but very drinkable. Nice stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with a fingers worth of a creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, milk chocolate and very faint hop bitterness. Sweet milk chocolate dominates the flavor with the lightest bit of bitterness in the end. Displays much more of a creamy and viscous body than milk stouts I’ve had. Enjoying this one.
