Bottle shared by Brandon - thanks! Deep brown pour with reddish highlights. Chocolate and some lactose. Mild bitterness. Solid. thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle from atom. Pours a deep brown with thin khaki head. Aroma is light roast coffee with minimal milk chocolate. Taste is light cocoa milk with a thin coffee bean. Overall the silky milk makes this but a little thin in the mouth. dwm1034 (784) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bomber from beer frig at lake...pours black with nose and initial taste of chocolate and coffee...thin tan head with nice lacing. Sweet and smooth...a little thin for a typical stout but creamy overall / smooth taste make up for it...smooth and tasty. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2012
On draft at GABF. Pours a hazy porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some chocolate, slight oreo, and lactose. Flavor is similar: lactose, chocolate, some roast, and some oreo. Medium in body and a nice milk stout overall.

Thin-ish body from the pour, certainly brown (not black) in color. Good lace, not much head. Some lacto sugars in the nose, though they are entirely absent in the taste. A pretty good (basic) stout, nothing special here. Theydon_Bois (19481) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle on Amtrak Train 27 - The Empire Builder ( from Binny’s South Loop) - 04/11/12.
Mid black with a frothy head that clears to the edges.
Nose comprises roast malt, chocolate, molasses, liqourice, touch of smoke.
Taste of milk chocolate, roast malt, a little hops. Alcohol well disguised for 7.5% ABV!
Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a roast finish.
Decent milk stout. PhillyCraft (7215) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle, pours a black color with a medium beige head, spotty lcaing patterns. Notes are nice and roasty, with some milk cocoa, sweet malts, candy sugars, and some vanilla bean. Super silky mouth with a good bit of carbonation, awesome aftertaste of smoked nuts, burn sugar, bitter coffee and vanilla sweetness. Pretty earthy overall in flavor. Solid milk stout.

Thanks for the share, Markwise. Nose is chocolate/cocoa, some light roast, and a faint sweetness. Pour is dark brown. Tan head. Taste is sweet roasted malt with some nice cocoa and chocolate flavors. Sweet and delicious. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Big bold robust coffee scents. Taste is similar, lots of coffee with a bit of chocolate. Has a big bitter finish, mouth feel isn't as creamy as I thought.
