Exceptionally creamy and delicious sweet stout, with pronounced coffee and chocolate flavors. The palate is sumptuous, with a lingering aftertaste of mocha. I drink these instead of dessert..

I think this was a surprise hit for a more experimental brew, but one with the greatest, never-get-the-rights-to-it name!!!! Roasty and chocolatey with a drying acid bite at the finish. Awesome roasty, vanilla espresso aftertaste. My boy, Ian drank most of the keg of this one!!!

On tap at the 2005 Great Taste of the Midwest: Pours a rich robust opaque, with dark brown edges and a thin coating of tan head. Aroma is dry, roasty and chocolatey with a touch of buttered popcorn. Nicely balanced and lightly hoppy with plenty of sweet chocolatey malt and lactose. An enjoyable stout that I hope they someday bottle.

GTM. Rich, stoutish aroma with some chocolate milk notes. Black body, fully opaque, huge light tan head. First impression is of coconut, but is more sweet milk. This brew was named after the "moloko milk" in A Clockwork Orange and quite honestly, this tastes like the sweet, alcoholic milk they referred to in the book. Outstanding. I wish they’d bottle this. Not much bite; smooth. Surprisingly high alcohol for the taste. Well done guys.

Thanks Duane for the hand bottled sample. Black body with no light showing through. The aroma is caramel, coffee, chocolate and a little hidden vanilla. Very smooth and inviting aroma. The taste has sugar sweetened coffee and smoot oatmeal. There is also some baking chocolate. The mouthfeel is slick. Nice version of a style I do not love.

Thanks richlikebeer for sharing this damn nice brew. Aroma was chocolate,coffee and a steamy milk. Poured black with a cream head. Taste was goood, chocolate and vanilla woody character with lactose to finish. I found it to be very enjoyable that could easily turn in to two or three more.

handbottled bomber courtesy of Duane, poured a solid black with a thin cream colored lacing. aromas of burnt coffee, chocolate, molasses and steamed milk, almost creating an expresso/cappucino smell. amazingly smooth chocolate flavor, lactose at the end, burnt coffee and some sweet vanilla in the middle. velvety smooth body, slides down your throat. a little bit acetic tail, but this could be a result of the heat during transport...either way, a very nice sweet stout. thanks alot duane

Tap @ GTMW. Moderate viscosity and midnight brown in color with a few streaks of tan for the head. Toned down aroma, with some rich chocolate, caramel currents in fudge brownies and dark chocolate fudge. Flavor begins with a lovely creamy milk chocolate persona that I’d have any day of the week to stow away in a milk carton and drink with my lunch. Rich chocolate morsels, like spooning out the cookie batter and putting more in your mouth than on the cookie sheet. Some brown sugar and maple oatmea. Medium bodied. This flavor is bitching. A delectable stout.
