Molasses, new plastic, unmalted barley aroma. Cola brown, medium yellow head. Tobacco flavor with hints of molasses but dry. Fizzy. Unrecognizable as a milk stout, but tasty.

Bottle during the Syr./Cal B-ball game. Nice dark brown pour with a big foamy brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt and a hint of coffee with sugar. Some Chocolate milk in the flavor. More roasted flavors and definitely finishes sweet. Good stuff

Tap. Pours a deep black/brown with a creamy head. The initial taste is strong chocolate malt but it mellows as you work your way through the beer. It is sweet with a little bite. OK overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from City Market Onion River Co-Op in Burlington, VT. Pours a very deep brown, mostly black colored body with a bit of a reddish hue around the edges. Finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty sweet with a lot of lactose, a moderate roast, and some dark and milky chocolates. Some dark fruits in there as well. Flavor is better, but still has a ton of lactose sweetness to it. Some creamy, milky, dark chocolates with a medium roast to balance along with a bit of a dark fruitiness. Some vanilla comes out towards the end before this finishes sweet and dry with a light, roasty bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste with a bit of a charred note coming out following a creamy, medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, this wasn’t bad, but it had a bit too much lactose sweetness for me. Some nice, creamy chocolate notes and a decent roast backing, but not much else. Eh.

Originally reviewed: 3/13/11. 22oz bottle, split with my wife, poured my allotment into a chalice. Pours a lighter than expected deep brown. This sits in the glass darker than it pours though. A small wispy tan head rests on top. The nose is sweet and creamy with notes of cookies, bread, dairy. Smooth mouth matches the style well. Easy-drinker. The flavors on this one are underwhelming. There’s some sweet lactose and mild roasted malts at the onset of each sip, but there is nothing lingering and the finish is abrupt. No aftertaste at all. Eh. This is an easy-drinking stout, but I’d like a little more flavor. Glad I had it, and still one of my favorite styles, but this was a bit lacking.
