Bottle courtesy of markwise from the fourth Local Beer Swap. Thanks Mark. Pours a dark black with a medium to large dense dark tan head that deflates steadily. Sweet cocoa, chocolate, lots of roast on the malt with a thick vanilla backbone. Medium bodied, sweet coffee and chocolate, lots of cocoa and sweet vanilla. Chewy vanilla and chocolate, cocoa. Very tasty, easy drinking, super smooth, roast and cocoa. Very nice stuff.

Bottle from Justin. Aroma and flavor of Nesquik and milk stout with a nice amount of carbonation. I could drink this stuff all day, but I only got the one bottle. Much more tame than Wake-n-Bake, but very good beer in its own right.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle served in a CBS snifter. 2011 seasonal. Big thanks to Holland(Eric) for the extra!
A: Pours a solid black with a very thin tan colored head forming on the pour. It dissipates quickly leaving a very thin collar.
S: The smell is mostly consistent of milk chocolate, some brown sugar, and a light toasted malt. Fairly straight forward for the style.
T: The taste is mainly a grainy dark malt and milk chocolate up front, very sugary. There is a milk dud like quality to it, but overall it is very sweet.
M: The mouthfeel is thin to medium and just has a sugary sweetness that stays with the palate for a little while.
O: Milk stouts of all kinds just arenít for me. They are too thin and sweet for the stout style IMO and I just really do not like the characteristics they bring to the table. The beer wasnít bad, but itís just not my cup of tea.

Pours translucent black. Aroma is chocolate and not much else. Taste is something else, though. The chocolate/roast is just about perfect for the style - really full flavor without being overpoweringly sweet, and the finish has a decent bite of alcohol. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque black pour with a medium beige head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of milk chocolate and malt. Medium, creamy body with flavors of cocoa, chocolate malt and mild coffee. The finish is chocolatey with a lingering sweetness left behind. Pretty enjoyable overall.

Poured from the bottle (thanks Donny). Dark brown in color, small amount of tan head. Very sweet chocolately aroma. Smooth, almost creamy taste with strong chocolate notes. Chocolate lingers in the aftertaste. Probably one of the best milk stouts Iíve tried, very tasty!!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
!2oz bottle share...Thanks, Donny. The aroma is is very chocolatey and sweet. Dark malt is very prevalent. The appearance is black almost no head. The taste starts out dry and dark and rolls into a fabulous sweet chocolate, then it finishes dry and dark again. On the palate it is a little heavy, and you get a little tingle from the dryness. Overall, this is a fantastic beer. I look forward to having this again some time.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Pours a pitch black color with a small eggshell/brownish color head. Retention is OK, not great
S: Whoa, really close to chocolate milk...tons of lactose up front, cocoa, lots of caramel, toffee, chocolate, and a lingering sweetness that you can almost taste
T: Lactose, residual sugar, caramel, fudge, chocolate...basically chocolate milk but with a unique cocoa powder. Not terribly balanced, but Iím diggin this.
MF/D: Sweet, velvety, smooth, and creamy feel to it. Carbonation is low, finish is rich milk chocolate and lactose.
Notes: Dessert beer for sure, sipper for sure. Very sweet and chocolatey, but great to drink once in a while
