Pours a very dark brown. Smell is of sweet tar and chocolate. A milder sweet stout but spot on with its alcohol. Good example of the style for sure. Cavie (4717) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Dark black color with a beige colored head. Aroma is sweet, chocolatey, cake and sugar. Flavor is sweet chocolate and cake again. Definitely a sweet stout that has a thick mouthfeel. Nice. superspak (5587) - Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours dense pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, coffee, and light toast. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of sweet dark malt notes; quite unique as well. Taste of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, coffee, and light toast. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, and coffee on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of sweet dark malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice milk stout! Great balance and robustness of sweet dark malt flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering. Sledutah (7530) - Utah, USA - FEB 26, 2013

355mL floating around at Kickbacks for RBWG JAX. Pours a clear cola ruby. Weaker head. Nose is coffee, praline, hazelnut, vanilla. Taste is clean, light lemon, dessert like hazelnut and praline. Surprisingly good.

Bottle at RBWG. Pours clear brown with a faint, beige film. Earthy aroma, some dirty cocoa. Medium sweet flavor, some milky chocolate, mild earthy bitterness, dirt, toasty malts. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate sweet finish, further earthy bitterness, bittersweet cocoa. Good stuff on the whole. mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle from RBWG. Smell of funk, sweet, oak. Front forward and a bit bitter. This really need to be more thick bodied. Way too thin in the back end. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Aroma of milk chocolate and roasted malts. A dark brown pour with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is roasted malts along with smooth sweet milk chocolate (lactose). There’s a fizzy hoppy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very nice sweet stout. Would drink again. dfinney23 (3269) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2013
