Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a goblet. Dark brown black with a khaki head that didn’t sti.ck around. Smells like milk chocolate. More carbonation than I expected. pretty light bodied and clean. Chocolate, light notes of coffee. Not bad, yet not great.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Lots of coffee. Tastes a little closer to an Irish Coffee or sweet after dinner liquor to me than chocolate milk, but who cares, it’s delicious. A little liquory vanilla, too. Quite excellent, I could drink this any time of day. Hopefully Terrapin keeps making its way up the seaboard to New England so I can buy this regularly.

Scopey (12247) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle thanks to Peter at Bruce’s 30th. It pours near black with a small beige head. The nose is big on the chocolate front, toffee, vanilla, honey and roasted malt. The taste is caramel, roasted malt, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, chocolate milk and toast. Medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Smooth and pretty easy drinking. Nice.

Travlr (21204) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown color, scant brown large bubble head. Aroma of boozy milk chocolate. Taste is syrupy and very bitter milk chocolate.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Coffee, chocolate and vanilla merge in this lean and otherwise roasty Sweet Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the blackness.
-Carbonation is frothy and the body slender, increasing drinkability.
-Roastiness mostly appears in the second half, building most of the finish.
-Lactose and general sweetness are there, but the body is easily accessible, never heavy.

Bottle.
