3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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, it’s 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. I’m 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 I’d 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market, Salem Oregon.
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
