Sample glass at tasting.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy fairly dark brown to black color with a thin layer of white foaminess to the head.
The smell had a nice roasty to sweet blend of chocolate to coffee.
The taste was mainly sweet with an ample amount of roasty sweet coffee to chocolate intermingling between. There’s a slight sweet milky chocolate aftertaste leading to a sweet sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. There’s a nice carbonation to the beer.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good sweet stout that I would have again. stef73 (620) - Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014

10/30/2014. On tap at the brewery. Black with a creamy tan head. Sweet milky aromas with roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Full body, creamy and rich. BrettTaylor (776) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2015 4 ounce taster at brewdo. Pours a dark rich brown with mocha colored head. Notes of coffee and roasted nuts on nose with maybe a touch of cocoa. Taste follows suit, but it felt like it was missing the creaminess I expect as mouthfeel from a milk stout.
10/26/15 - re-rated from bottle. Bottle has that creamy mouthfeel I thought was missing from taster. Rating increased accordingly. DocJitsu (1974) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours an opaque, very dark brown with a lovely, fluffy, tan-brown head. Moderately dark roasted malt on the nose with some lactose and a note of plastic on the nose. Smooth, nearly unassuming palate. Nutty, sorghum, unflavored cocoa, and lactose flavors.

[on tap at Local, PHI airport]
Coffee with milk aroma with some light vanilla roasted barley notes and licorice accents. Clear garnet-black that is nearly opaque under a lacy, thin white patch. Delicate coffee and vanilla flavour with just a hint of hops flavour and a subtle bitterness that is just enough for balance. Light body and leaning towards crisp, medium carbonation. ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from unknown, via Dan S. Pours a dark black, little to no tan head. Aroma slightly roasty, milk chocolate, some coffee. Body medium roasty, some sweetness and chocolate malt. Not bad, but I prefer Split Shot. solidfunk (8941) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Nice! Very bitter and toasty. Pours black with great head and lacing. Mocha head. Quite a bitter finish and lactose adds texture but not a huge element to aroma. Bottle. generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: The body has a dark black look with a a one inch thick off white head. The head holds on well and makes some nice lacing.
Smell: The aroma has nice toasted/roasted maltiness and mild sweetness.
Taste / Palate: The flavor is nicely balanced with mellow toasded and roasted maltiness. It has a nice molasses like sweetness and equally balanced bitterness. It’s palate is a light medium and very drinkable. CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours almost black with quick disappearing, khaki head. Smells basically like chocolate and roasted coffee note. Tastes like dark chocolate, coffee, yum. Palate's a bit light for me. Overall, it was just ok, the taste was more like a Porter.
