ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Reviewed 12/23/2012. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a very dark brown color. Itís not quite as ultra-opaque as the WnB I had just before this, but itís still dark enough to block out the light. The head is a two finger mocha shade with meh retention. There is a bit of lace left on the glass, at least. S: Surprisingly nutty in terms of aroma. There also seems to be a combination of roasted and charred malts, as well. I donít really pick up a lot of chocolate on the nose. T: Wait, did I say that I donít pick up a lot of chocolate aromatically? Because the chocolate is really battering the palate here. It opens the flavor profile like a wrecking ball - almost as if Terrapin melted a 70% dark cocoa bar into the beer before bottling it. The midtaste brings a lot of lactic cream in a balanced manner. Itís sweet enough to make this a slow sipper rather than a chugger or even a gulper. At least the lactose never comes across as being acidic, sour, or harsh. M: The body comes across as thicker and more syrupy than it really is, which I would attribute to the finishing cream flavor. Thereís some finishing astringency, too, but itís not dry enough finish-wise to balance it out. Carbonation is mediocre. O: I feel like milk stouts are the Tito Jackson of the stout family - but this one hits my chocolate tooth enough to separate it from the pack. Totally rock solid as long as you donít expect it to be WnB.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Brown, bubbly head. Black body. Smells of chocolate, roasted coffee beans, citrus. A lot of chocolate and milk taste, some coffee, roasted. Bitter aftertaste. It feels a bit weak, but still a good brew.

Dacrza (593) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2015
DATE TASTED: May 14, 2015... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint... OCCASION: Cavs/Bulls Game Six--closeout?... APPEARANCE: expectedly dark; creamy, milky brown head that settles to a quarter-inch; ... AROMA: milky, lactic whiffs of chocolate; surprising floral hops mix with heavier peat malts; an alluring approach ...PALATE: light, almost thin, and smooth, with warmth at the throat; soft and flat carbonation; long, well received finish... TASTE: as advertised, the chocolate is appreciable and appreciated; the sweetness is noticeable, like a white Russian; some vegetable and earthy notes as well... OVERALL: a reasonable, chocolaty approach, as a milk stout can be; Terrapinís art alone makes for an attractive pint, but the beer itself is a good approximation of the style...

Hopmaestro (398) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2015
Aroma is mild roasted chocolate malts with with shitloads of vanilla. Taste is zero bitterness, sweet chocolate, lactic notes with a mild sourness in the finish. In the end, you just sit there with a childish grin, thinking back to when you were a kid -"If this was around back then, I coulda tricked my mom to serve me this chocolate milk drink for breakfast". One dimensional, but really enjoyable!
