Very dark and oily looking. Chocolate and coffee in the nose. Medium/full mouthfeel. The flavor wasn’t as chocolaty as I’d hoped. Good stout.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Very dark, almost black, thin short lasting head. Light chocolate aroma with a little roast. Alot of rich chocolate up front, dry roasty finish. Touches of vanilla and caramel linger. Slightly tannic feel. Overall pretty decent.

taylor714 (9) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2011 does not count
Upfront chocolaty and roasted nose. 2 Fingers of thick head with a moderate pour. The taste is smooth, sweet, with a touch of lactose and a milk chocolaty taste. Much more chocolaty than I had expected. I’m not huge on sweet stouts, but the touch of sweetness complements the milk chocolate flavor and aroma. The palate is smooth and slick, not to viscous, not too thin. Overall a solid dessert beer that’s great when you’re in the mood for something sweet!

ExpendableHero (762) - Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Brewers take note: this is the right way to do a milk stout. Dark brown beer with a frothy tan head. Aromas of sugar and sweet milk. The taste is undeniably chocolate. Very sweet chocolate, with lactic sugars. It really tastes like chocolate milk. This beer also manages to avoid the whole coffee thing too. Well done.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4973) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick and black with a medium sized dark brown head that faded quickly and left decent lacing. The aroma was faint chocolate milk and light toasty malts. The flavor was strong lactose and chocolate milk with light notes of biscuit, toast and marshmallow. The finish was long with cocoa, vanilla, lactose and marshmallow. Full, thick an creamy body. Well done.

Metalchopz (2318) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2011
Thanks to Lilihel’s parent for bring this one up from Nashville, for Christmas 2010. Pours a dark colour with a creamy beige head that creates lots of lacing and decent retention. Mild sweet smell of chocolate and maple syrup. Smooth mouthfeel with a little stick. Milky chocolate taste with hints of vanilla and coffee. A decent sweet stout.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle pours black and inky, with a small light brown head. Aroma is subdued, with only milk chocolate and a walnut nuttiness picked up. Prickly carbonation enlivens the medium body. Tastes like Hershey’s Kisses with a hint of coffee. Very little bitterness, dark roasty or otherwise. Finishes with a lasting lactose sweetness which I suppose is appropriate for the style. A bit too sweet for my palate but nicely constructed with the chocolate addition.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottled. Deep mahogany brown ale; deep w/ hues of ruby. Nose is bitter & sweet in the happiest way possible! That carries over to the palate; great balance between complex bitters combining w/ lite roast notes & sugary choc. w/ sweet malts. So drinkable. Well done.

steelcitybrew (430) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Sweet, very drinkable. chocolate, roasted malts, and candy. Palate is a bit weak but otherwise a very solid beer.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2011
Pours black with a slight brown head and light lacing. Nose is roasty with coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of hops. Flavor is sort of weak and less chocolate-milky than advertised, leaning more toward a standard cream stout. Finish brings out a little more milk and less roastiness and this is as close to its namesake as it gets. Good stuff though and something I’ll try again.
