Fatehunter (1384) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Finger and half of dark tan head. Black colored body. Smell of roasted malt, milk chocolate and toast. Hits the mark. Smooth taste with a good bite of bitterness. Roasted malt a heavy hitter. Great balance and flavor. Smooth texture with low carbonation. An excellent drink.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body, almost black, with a small fizzy brown head that had pretty decent retention before fading to a thin film. The nose is quite sweet and chocolaty with some roast, light coffee, and maybe a bit of a weird dry roasted peanut like note. Flavor wise, itís indeed quite sweet up front with a lot of milk chocolate and some coffee. It finishes a bit on the drier side though, with a slightly burnt and acrid malt quality that really lingers. Iím a fan of it not being overly sweet all the way thru, but the finish seems a little off. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. This is drinkable, but not something that Iíd seek out and buy again.

Dark brown pour. Creamy tan head. Very light chocolate, lactose, plastic. Flavor is like magic markers mixed with a milk stout. Meh.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Black pour with a small creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of ash. Flavor presents a nice roasted character with bittersweet chocolate, coffee and creamy sweetness. Medium bodied with a sweet finish. Solid offering from Widmer.

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Good beer - an easy drinker. Lacked a big aroma. It had some roasty/marshmallow characteristics, but not a lot. The flavor was roasty, toasty, but need a silkier mouthfeel. It was a solid beer, just wanted more creaminess and something to mellow out the big earthy hops.

elmillero (8) - Granite City, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2012 does not count
Sight: Classic stout color and pour, hardly any head, but what there was, was crema in color, like a nice espresso. Aroma: Nutty, slight chocolate, vanilla, slight coffee. Taste: Slight chocolate start, vanilla, toffee, roasted, bitter middle, bitter finish, not unpleasant by any means. Lingers. Mouth: Smooth start, slight effervescent, good fullness. Finish: Lingering bitter, continual flavor of taste. Very good Milk Stout.

Reid (1944) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2012
12 oz single from Rothís Sunnyslope Market, Salem Oregon. $1.89 Black body with a quarter inch sized creamy tan head. Creamy milk aromas over burnt oat notes..with some treacle thrown in. Taste is very cream like..with nice dark fruitiness and molasses and slight pipe tobacco..very nice. Nice feel in the mouth its not as thick as anticipated but still holds together. Very nice tasty stout here.

boFNjackson (4171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle... Poured pitch black with a thick forming, frothy, eggy, light khaki head. Smooth, full bodied mouthfeel. Along the lines of chocolate milk with a lot of cocoa, lactose sugar, mocha, and roast. Added char quality was sort of astringent but not overbearing.

Perfectly smooth, strong, silky, and sweet. Easily Widmer Brothersí best beer.
