3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A viscous sweet stout with some weird flavors. Meh.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed a month or two after purchase.
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose is hot-chocolate, some phenols, tar, black liquorice. Taste is rather sweet which is not surprising coming from Southern Tier. Sweet black liquorice, burnt cereals, molasses, hot chocolate, ink, worchestire sauce, salty soy sauce. Body is very viscous, more so than a 7.5% stout should be. More than just lactic notes, I thought this beer was in-your-face milky. This beer didn’t work for me, not something I need to drink again. Not bad per say, but a little 12oz was enough, just an excuse to add another rating to ratebeer. And our beloved ratebeer website may not be the best thing on the internet but it is not so bad either, what really saddens me the most about the internet is all the weird sick stuff you can find out there and how I’ll never have time to see it all.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: a fairly demure nose of roast coffee, creamy milk and a touch of bittering cocoa.
A: deep black color with a thin head with low retention.
T: sweet and roasty with some plum and date notes; most of the chocolate and coffee are left back in the aroma. Sweetness is a bit strong at the end.
P: crisp and a little smooth, medium-to-heavy body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A very nice double take on the style. Its a little bit to astringent from the roasted malt which cuts into to the sweetness. But a very nice beer that is the standard by which I measure all other DOUBLE milk stouts.

Bottle from Market Street. Pours black with a thin khaki head. The aromas are milk chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a heavy body and light carbonation. Cheers!

On Tap (and on Nitro) at the River Room, Whole Foods,Boise Lovely light tan Nitro head . Dark roasty aromas and flavors. Easy on the lactose sweetness but it does soften the edge. Very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate and roasty malt. Flavour is chocolate and roasty malt, some subtle dark fruit. Not as heavy as expected for the ABV, but still flavourful and pretty well balanced for a sweet stout. Tasty.

Quite enjoyable. Nice dark reddish brown color that s almost opaque. Deep dark chocolate nose, a bit of a chocolate cream and a teeny hint of coffee. Semi-sweet chocolately finish, creamy palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured. Pours a cola black color with a quick fading head. Malty, sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor is a ton of sweet chocolate flavor, with a nice roasted flavor to it. Definitely a sweet, milk chocolate. I am one of those that believe dark chocolate clearly dominates milk, so this one lacked the bold flavor that I enjoy in a lot of chocolate stouts, but overall this was a good beer.
