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, 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.

Bottle purchased at Vickerís Liquors and opened on the fourth of July, this year. Darkest brown in color with a huge tan head. Malty and roasty nose with notes of chocolate and cream. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a creamy lactose character before a bitter coffee finish. Pretty nice.

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.

22oz bottle in an English pint. Pours black with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of milk, some coffee and chocolate, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good milk stout.

Aroma is milk sweetness, roasted malts and a hint of tartness/acidity. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, milk sweetness, a hint of fruit and mild acidity in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle. pours black with a small, stable, creamy brown head. milk chocolate aroma with some toast. creamy, full palate. flavors is not as sweet as i like. it has some milk chocolate notes with some toast, dog food, and way too much foresty hops for the style. i donít understand the cascade hop addition in a milk stout. its like drowning a filet in steak sauce.

Very dark brown pour with good dark tan head. Nice roasty cocoa pervades the senses. And it seems real, not fake or medicinal. Soft vanilla notes. Creamy and Silky smooth on the tongue. VERY pleasantly surprised with this one!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
How am I the first to rate this?!? Anyway, bottle. Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with a moderate, though quickly disappearing, head. Some nice roasted flavors to the nose. Just a little bit of sweetness to the taste, but some nice roasting to the taste as well. Happy to drink this one.
