Sampled at Volo IPA Challenge. Poured deep black with a thick mocha head. Aromas of rich coffee, roasted malt and some sweet notes. Flavour dominated by roasted malt, coffee then a sweetness. The finish was hoppy, long and bitter. Flavourful for such a relatively low alcohol beer. RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2009
On tap at Volo. My first encounter with a milk stout. Upon inquiry, I was informed that the beer is made with lactose to achieve that creamy milk flavour. I must say that it certainly didn’t disappoint.Creamy mouthfeel led way to a milk chocolate flavour with slightly bittersweet undertones. Congrats to Mill Street for coming up with an interesting beer. Mind you, don’t have too many at a time or you just may upset your stomach. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2009
[2049-20090325] Tap. Roasted chocolate malt aroma is sweet. Black body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Milk chocolate roasted malt flavour has a long roasted finish. Full body has some rough bitterness. Tasty, and quite aptly named.

Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice, darkest brown, small cappuccino head. Flavour has coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, woody and nutty. Light bodied, very well balanced, quite bitter, sourish, a real treat. Very good.

On tap at volo. Nice roasty taste with good chocolate notes, good bitterness in the finish. A bit too sweet for me, but a fine milk stout. piscator34 (2539) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
On draft at Volo. Near black in colour with moderate to low carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, red grapes, coffee, and a hint of herbal hops. More of the chocolate + mild roast coffee combo in the mouth, along with notes of vanilla and caramel. The lactic sweetness makes the mouthfeel a bit cloying for my taste. blankboy (7702) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
Draught at Mill St. Brewpub. Pours black with a small creamy tan head. Good lacing on the glass. Overly mild aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Nice flavour of roasted malt, coffee, light green hops and a roasty, dry bitter finish. Average bodied. Well done, a good Stout.

Draught. At Mill Street Brewpub. Opaque black, thin looking, with a thick creamy lasting tan head (4-). Served a bit too cold, so mild aroma of light herbal hops, sweetened coffee - roasty with a bit of cream. Taste is similar, but a little fuller - roast coffee, cream, lightly herbal, a hint of mint, oddly strong for <5% - and licorice. Average body, silky, decent (if maybe a bit too much) carbonation, pleasant bitterness in the finish, prevents it from being cloying. Pretty solid.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2009 On tap at The Kick Off in Waterloo. Taps a very nice opaque brown with a large mocha head. The aroma on this one is awesome! Roasty malts with coffee, out-done by sweet vanilla and cream, very nice. Flavour is very sweet, but not cloyingly sweet. Waves of malts, roasty, coffee, toffee, creamy, vanilla, and very smooth feeling. A tad bit of residual sugar in there too. Goes down easy for something so sweet, and I usually hate excessive sweetness in a beer. Everything blends really well in my opinion. Definitely one of my favourtie stouts I’ve tried. I have no idea why other people are finding this thin and light, it’s got plenty body, perhaps they’re put off by the sweetness or w/e. I love it. Wouldn’t drink boatloads of it in one sitting, though I can’t really think of any stout I would want to do that with.
