Dark brown pour. Light brown head. Tons of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roast, ashy notes. Flavor is loaded with roast and coffee, dry, lightly sweet. Nice stuff! Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle: The aroma is a nice mixture of chocolate, roasted coffee, and a hint of nuts. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger tan head that fades to a thin film and leaves spotty lacing. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate and a touch of vanilla. The finish has light-moderate roasted coffee and a hint of fruit. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice Sweet Stout and I can definitely see myself drinking plenty of this in the near future. tfratzke (99) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Pours pitch black. Seriously. I held it up to light and could not see through it. Brownish tan head. not much lacing on the glass. Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate and molasses. Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Nice creamy mouthfeel with little carbonation and silky smooth on the palate. I enjoyed this Milk Stout through and through.

Had this at a tasting at the Four Firkins grand opening in Minneapolis. Has an awesome arome of chocolate and coffee and the taste matches the scent. Has a nice smooth taste going down as well. FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Looks like a fresh pint of black coffee, near zero clarity, thin latte cap.
Smells of fresh cream, oily coffee beans, sweet honey, more coffee, really a pleasant aroma I think.
Taste - milk and oatmeal as promised, aftertaste like a dark roast with half and half, the oats take a back seat to the lingering latte flavors - mouthfeel could stand to get beefed up a bit.
Overall, this is a solid offering from a brewery that is really hit or miss for me, I’d recommend this to any stout fan

Bottle. Very dark body with light brown head. Smooth on the palate, roasted flavor with creamy milk aftertaste. Gridfather (32) - - MAY 4, 2014
5/04/14 at Red Cow Minneapolis, on tap in pint glass. Aroma is of roasty, toasty malt, as it should be. As dark as midnight with a thick, lingering head. Intense flavor of deeply roasted malt. Malt Heads rejoice! This is a yummy stout! Please sir, may I have another?

Pretty much just a straight -forward milk stout. Clean afttertartaste, great body. poisoneddwarf (2710) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 12, 2017
12 oz bottle bought along Highway 2 somewhere on a recent road trip. Aroma is chocolaty, roasty, coffee, licorice. Pours black with a one finger tan head with good retention. Taste is sweet with a faint bitterness. Pretty much everything you want in a sweet stout. Good stuff.
