12oz bottle pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, lactose, molasses, and licorice. Taste of sweet chocolate, coffee, smooth lactose, toasted oats, finishing with slight anise and some bitterness. A solid sweet stout. Beyond (23) - Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 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!

$2 single at HyVee, Ankeny, IA. Nice sweet cocoa nose from the first pour. Filling a whole glass just brings out more of that milk chocolately goodness. Brownish-black in the glass, with a thick brown head. Taste is not as sweet as the nose would lead you to expect, but that’s not a bad thing. Instead, I get a regular malty sweetness of dark roast malt without being overdone. Not that estery, instead a good balance of malt with, well, malt. Bitterness is just there for support, except for a slight tickle at the top of the palate. Plenty of body to this, even though it goes down easily and quickly. Now I’m wishing these guys would expand to our area. madvike (3264) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle - Pours black with a foamy tan head. Nose is milky dark malt, a touch of coffee, milk chocolate--and because it’s in the description, I do get some anise/fennel notes. Definitely has that oatmeal stout smoothness. Taste is the same. It’s sweet, but it’s tempered by the oatmeal milkiness. Subtle ashy roast in the finish, with dark malt all the way through. Pretty thin bodied, but velvety smooth and fluffy. Very nice beer. arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with decent tan head. Nose is chocolate and coffee. A little watery in the mouthfeel. Nice bitterness. Travlr (24781) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2015

What you’d expect from a good milk stout. Sweet and chocolately with a nice sourish finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel.
