OK so did you ever have a baby just finish nursing who you lifted above your head for a big smile, and while your mouuth was open the baby spit up the breast milke? well that is what this tasted like add banana baby food to the mix...watered down; very thin.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 15, 2009
Pours black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is cream and caramelized sugar. Body is fairly light for a milk stout, with flavors of chocolate, coffee and milk sugar. Not too bad.

Dark red/brown with tan head. Bready, wheaty wow, smells just like wheat bread, tastes like wheat bread. A tad milky but the hearty oats and wheat dominate the taste landscape of this beer. Interesting, but I dont think I could get by my first impression to get anything meaningful out of this beer.

Very good looking, black, small biege head. No aromas. Bitterish, sweet, roasted taste and nothing more. Not interesting and too much lactose/dextrine. meh...too watery

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Pours a dark brown with a bubbly red-brown head. Aroma is some caramel notes, not much else. Taste is a touch bitter, creamy, sweet; also a bit coppery but I suspect that has more to do with the bottling/handling than the brewing. Its not great tasting but it goes down smooth. Not one I would recommend.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2009
This poured a sparkling yet impenetrable dark brown, almost black colour. It was virtually headless, and almost devoid of any aroma as well. I could barely detect anything (chocolate milk, maybe?). The taste was quite mild, rather un-stoutish with that underlying chocolate milk thing again. Mouthfeel was not so bad.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a pint glass. There is no freshness date on the bottle. Appearance: The body has a nice dark chocolaty brown color with a light brown, chocolate milk shake like head on top. The head has very good retention makes tons of thick light brown lacing on the glass. Smell: Its aroma has a mix of leafy hops, minerals and smoky roasted grain. Taste/Mouth Feel: The flavor has hints of coffee with cream, some smoke, sweet roasted gain, leafy hops and a light dusting of dark coco powder. It has a nice medium body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. It is slick but not overly thick or cloying at all. Notes: There is a lot of flavor packed into this little beer that has only 3.8%abv. This could be a nice dark session beer.

Butelka 0.25L
Wygląd: Ciemnobrunatne, rubinowe, klarowne. Piany prawie nie ma wcale.
Aromat: Mało intensywny, lekko czerwone wino, porto, śliwka suszona, karmel, miodowy, słodowy, lekko metaliczne nuty,
Smak: Rozwodniona kawa zbożowa i pustka po za tym.
Odczucie: Wodniste, faktura wodnisto/metaliczna, wysycenie niskie.
Całość: Kiepskie w smaku, delikatny ale dość ciekawy aromat.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Pours dark brown, but almost black with a slight reddish hue. Foamy tan head. Aroma was mildly sweet with chocolate and weak coffee. Thin mouthfeel. Chocolate, light caramel, milk, and nuts on the tongue. Boring finish. Not my favorite style, but its drinkable.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Pours deep brown with red edges. Theres some sweet malt aroma at first, but it gets overshadowed by a vegital weirdness. Flavor is a little off from what I was expecting and tastes like a bad eastern European beer. Very little carbonation, and a weird skunky character give this a bad score.
