HMOG 2014. Forgot about them even making these until the bottle made its rounds. Flavor was lots of lactose/creamy cocoa, sweet vanilla, coffee. There is certainly a bit of harshness here and not sure where it is coming from. Still very good and actually makes for an interesting milk porter. jrob21 (3661) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2014
HMOG 2014. Bit of a whiskey alcohol aroma. Flavor is smooth with some wood and creamy milk chocolate. Could have sworn this was a barrel aged beer. EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2014
HMOG 2014. Is it possible that this beer got so much better with age. Scent is an earthy spice. Starts sweet and finishes with a nice spicy bite. Bottle - Shared at HMOG ICEatALAMO (1349) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark with a nice tan head. Nice sweet aroma and very inviting. The taste is a little harsh upfront. A little sour in the middle. Good beer, but not what I expect from a milk stout.

From the July 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized dark tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was bitter malts, port wine, vanilla, anise and cocoa. The flavor was port wine, vanilla, cream, anise, cocoa, coffee and lactose. The finish was long with port wine, vanilla and anise lingering. Creamy and thick body. Very nice.

Bottle brought by someone to Bartowel tasting at my place. Dark brown with almost no head, more of a just a mocha lacing. Lactose, chocoalte, toffee, alcohol. Silken texture, moderate to full body with slightly low carbonation, sweet but slightly bitter on the finish. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle at Max’s. Pours brown with no head. Nose of molasses, booze, cocoa. Super astringent mouthfeel with notes of char, smoke, sweet chocolate. Not a big fan. italarican (1546) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle shared at the NY Meet the TURD tasting. Pours dark chocolate with khaki lacing. Aroma is rich of fudge and whisky. Flavor is full of tobacco and chocolate extract. Oak and milk chocolate sweetness in the background. Long lasting pipe smoke with sweet milk chocolate in the finish. Thin, silky smooth body. Increasing whisky flavor. I liked this a lot more than others at the tasting. Lubiere (13772) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
A deep dark brown porter with a thin dark brown head. In aroma, a sweet chocolate with sweaty soy sauce, salty notes, licorice, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet milky chocolate with light iodine notes, light warming alcohol, smooth and warming. Tasted with the Bartowel crew at Pushkinwow’s, March 23, 2012.

Bottle. Pours a dark black with caramel colored head and lacing. Aromas of milk, whiskey, cheese, sour lactic wine, nuts, and smokey malt. Taste was more milk chocoolate, and fish like. Simple. Rustic. Yes!
