A robust and smooth chocolately stout brewed with fair trade Peruvian cocoa powder, lactose (milk sugar) and a touch of flaked oats. With an inviting aroma of dark chocolate and a silky smooth unfiltered malt body, this unique stout is the perfect winter treat.

Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to WingmanWillis for this one. Very dark brown with cream head. There is a milky creaminess to this along with a sweet chocolate character, milky rather than dark chocolate to me. There is a malty bitterness later on. Not really to my taste this one.

Decent stout, in can at Stouts. Good balance between sweet and bitter, though nothing extraordinary in either. Smooth mouthfeel, good drinkability.

Cask. Deep black pour with a tight white head. The nose is fairly chocolatey with some grassy/herbal flavour. A little bit of light sweetness and a touch of lingering light chocolate flavour. It doesn’t come across as terribly milk chocolatey but it’s okay.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 2012-11-23. Quick notes. Les chocolatey than I remember. Pleasant relatively dry roast character. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Chocolate comes out more as it warms up. Enjoyable. Can shared by Tupalev

2012-09-14. Dark black body, tiny brown head if you swirl it enough. 3+ Modest aroma, dryish cocoa, light roast, muted fruity accents. 6+ Flavour is also milder than expected, finishes dry, mild cocoa and roast. Alcohol is not strong on the tongue, but leaves the mouth lightly tingly, light fruit comes out as you go, not super chocolaty. 6+ Smooth medium to full bodied palate needs more carbonation. Okay, shows potential. On cask at C’est What Festival of Small Breweries

Cask at C’est What Fall Festival of Small Breweries, Sept. 14. Pours a very dark brown with no head. Mild aroma of lightly roasted malt and chocolate. Flavour, also mild and a bit watery, of chocolate and malt -- not much going on here. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Meh.

Ferris (5267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft - Dark roast, dark chocolate and some nice molasses. Jet black with a rich brown head. Little bit of molasses and booze, dark chocolate and a sweet boozy finish. Not bad, but booze dominates.

solidfunk (4549) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Has a pungent aroma of musky malt with some smoke and a little lactose and coffee. Palate is a little watery. A little lacing, pours pretty black with some head. Some bitterness at the end. Pretty full taste - among Wellington’s better. The lactose isn’t that prominent. On tap at volos.

24th Jan 2015: another bottle shared at the Cotteridge Wine meeting, cheers Wingman for this offering. Really dark brown with a cream coloured topping. No hiding that this is a Sweet Stout and it’s name gives away the flavours somewhat! Yes, this is a milk Stout with plenty of chocolate notes in both the nose and taste, smooth and fairly creamy in texture, nice feel to the brew, I liked it. Good alcohol kick too.
