very dark brown with medium head. plenty of chocolate and coffee. doesn’t seem particularly sweet to me, but it could just be the coffee acidity that covers it up. either way, it’s a very well done stout. MrBunn (2867) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a leathery dark brown with a thin head and aromas of chocolate, cream, leather and a little bit of earth. Flavor is earthy, milky and chocolate. Mouthfeel is a little slippery with a chocolate and earth finish. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Very good aroma, coffee scent. Nice, creamy pour with some head. Great taste and almost an oily finish, but very nice. Sweet with strong coffee notes but not overpowering. Very nice from a town of 220 people JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours deep black with lactose notes and light vanilla sweetness. A light creamy texture which allows th lactose dominate with a fabulous nuanced bit of toasted sweet grains. Nice oily finish. Love this stout! cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Really good sweet stout. Pours dark with a bit of tan head. Smells like coffee, tobacco, vanilla, milk chocolate, and banana. Smooth and slick palate. Very milky and creamy with nice chocolate and coffee flavours coming through. Roasted malts. Sour cherry finish. Delicious!

Nice aroma out of the bottle, good taste with little to no after taste. Dark on color. Flavors are subtle. oobawa (1862) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Tasty, with a massive roasted java front that screams fresh coffee. That no beans were used in the recipe never fails to impress me; the magic of malt is a wonderful thing. Sweetens as it warms, developing underlying notes of chocolate and dried fruit. Finishes dry, with a prolonged coffee fade. Moo Joos makes a nice pint, a bit of a middle ground between a sweet and a dry oatmeal stout. superspak (6219) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours clear fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Some decent spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, milk, cream, toast, oats, and light coffee. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. I can honestly say this is the first stout I have had that has a true milk aroma component. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, toast, oats, caramel, and light coffee. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, and oats on the finish for a short bit. Quite dry on the finish. Good balance of flavors, but it is a bit on the bland side of things as far as robustness. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel as expected. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a very slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a good milk stout. A little bland, but has nice balanced flavors; and is certainly enjoyable. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pours a rich black with a smal tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet with notes of chocolate, malt, and caramel. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, cream, caramel, and notes of cloves and anise. Rich, smooth body with little carbonation. Very good. Ratman197 (15624) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting creamy brown head. Aromas of roastiness, bitter chocolate, vanilla, carmel and light coffee. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness, coffee and bitter chocolate with a smooth lingering roasty finish.
