3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 500 ml bottle from Norm’s, 11/17/12
Aroma: The nose is chocolate, vanilla, some roasted malts, and a little bit of coffee
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown-black color with a small beige head
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, heavy malty, pretty toasty, and with a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it feels creamy, has a soft carbonation, and a lengthy, lightly dry finish
I thought this was a really solid beer, but it didn’t approach world class for me. Still though, it was very solid, and the flavors were right in-line with what they were going for. The vanilla doesn’t overpower, instead, it adds a nice component. Good stuff.
We had this at the Irish pub Leary's landing in Bar Harbor Maine in 2017 this is the very good milk nitro stout

1 Pint 9 Fl. Oz. bottle split by 2 @ "D. & E. Tasting #3". Bottled 11 April 2017. Obtained in a trade with AdamChandler. Dark brown, creamy solid mocha head. Nose is basic coffee, mocha, chocolate, cacao, basic cacao, easy low roast. Taste is basic cheap cacao, mocha, chocolate, low dry, very basic chocolate cacao,… Solid easy drinking every day brew, lacking depth or complexity plus I got zero vanilla,.. Body is the same. Decent but didn’t feel top 50 style to me. tapefuzz (760) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2017

500ml bottle @ Matt’s. Spring CANBIF 2017, thanks byronic.. Pours opaque black with a small tan head. Nose is quite roasted with hints of dark chocolate. Flavour is
also quite toasted with some nutty character and a trailing sweetness. Interesting but I’m not getting much for vanilla. Ferris (16296) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2017

500 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with light bubbly head. Aromas of black coffee and dusty roasted malts. Flavors of same with ash and oats. A bit thin. Can’t get much vanilla. Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2017
Dark brown. On the nose, there’s a lot of toastines, nuttiness. Almost has a smoky quality. On the palate, sweet, with a toasty character, and a light molasses. Decent body...maybe a bit thin but the dark sugars are really nie. For me, it’s more of an old ale or maybe a porter, but whatever you call it, a nice dark ale. meccahh69lol (322) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - APR 28, 2017
Another expensive pint bottle that somehow winds up warranting the price tag from Maine Beer Co. The smell is smooth chocolatey velvety with notes of fresh cut tobacco and pancake syrup. The body is classic stout blackish brownish with a thing root beer head. The taste is rather lovely, smooth choco vanilla that almost gives it a dessert beer vibe, but enough smoke on the backend to prevent any cloying effects. Pret ay pret ay guuud for rocking out to some Waylon Jennings while trying to decide where to get friday night fried chicken product.
