esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Brown with a very thin brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, chocolate, coffee, sweet malt, molasses, alcohol and cocoa. Taste of sweet malt, coffee, roasted malt, coffee and alcohol. Creamy and bit thin with a finish that’s mildly bitter with some sweetness to it. Preferred the one and three stout versions to this.

Pours exactly like motor oil from the bottle with a thick dark borwn head of foam. Mild cocoa aroma. Creamy and malty as advertised. Very balanced and enjoyable.

BossHossBikes (148) - California, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours like their other three big stouts, black as night, medium viscosity, and with a deep, dark burgundy/brown head. The aroma is very roasty with hints of a tangy darker fruit. Cocoa notes are quite prevalent along with the also noticeable coffee. Smooth lactose notes are very, very subtle. The brew is somewhat light on the tongue but provides some nice smooth creaminess. The initial flavour is very milky with hints of a light pomegranate tanginess. As the brew proceeds to pass the tongue, tanginess bursts a little before a nice blast of chocolate mixes perfectly with the milky qualities. Piquant notes of roastines really enhances the cocoa flavours and creates a dryness that counterbalances the creamy lactose. Mmmm, delicious.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Courtesy of CigarCityBrew. Pours deep darkness with almost no head. The aroma is bold and inviting. I get highly roasted to burnt malts along with chocolate, coffee and sweet molasses. Smells great. The flavor enters with some smoothness and starts with a black licorice note then vanilla and burnt malts. It then moves into coffee, chocolate and more burnt malts. Everything goes together nicely.

The Dan Journal #199. Tasted 7/10/08. 12oz bottle. Dark brwon hue. Gnarly eyeball of khaki head. More toffee and cream in the aroma than the One Stout. Subtle dose of alcohol in the nose. More so vanilla and creamy and richer. Mild bitterness. These Guys are good!

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Poured dark brown with ruby highlights and a large fizzy/frothy brown head. Rich sweet aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, a bit of alcohol, some light bitter coffee. Flavor follows with notes of roasted coffee beans, some 60% cacao bitter chocolate, a bit of vinous fruits, some dry alcohol. Im impressed how this beer balances sweetness and bitter roastiness. At first I thought they traded off, with sweetness coming first and bitterness following, but as I went though the glass I felt more that they somehow worked side-by-side, the virtual ideal for a milk stout. Mouth feel is sufficiently creamy for the style. Overall I was very impressed by beer which finally penetrated my select group of favorite stouts that are not brewed Bells.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle courtesy of someone from the Tampa crew. Pours black with a small tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium creamy mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Bottle, courtesy CIgarCityBrew I believe. Black pour, not much of a head, and a ring of white lacing on the glass. Chocolate nose, giant roasted malts, some oats. Creamy chocolate flavors, some lactose, oats, malts are very fulfilling, with full of life. So good. Smooth and frothy mouthfeel, drinkable, delicious.
