On tap in Denver for GABF 2012. Pours a black color with a medium tan head. A nice big milky nose with chocolates. The flavor is a rich milk chocolate with light metallic roast, very smooth. Good. bytemesis (8337) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 4, 2016

On tap at GTMW. Poured medium brown with a tall, creamy beige head.. looked great! The aroma picked up sweet milky notes, with burnt, darker accents.. milk chocolatey again on the back of the nose. The flavor found warm, milk chocolates throughout, with hints of molasses and honey supporting.. quite milky.. well-balanced.. just what I wanted! Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. delicious! 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.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2010 Draft at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a pretty much pitchblack opaque pour, dark and ominous snifter with a very large khaki head, laces well and cakes. Aromas are a hefty dose of sweet lactose and cocoa, light coffee and roasted malts come in behind, with caramel and smoothed out vanilla, sweet oats, and more creamy lactose sweetness moving in. Initial is medium bodied, a bit nitro’d perhaps, with sweet vanilla and lactose up front, roast and coffee with a touch of ashyness moving in at the backend. More cocoa up front, a touch of caramel, but sweet and bitter chocolate are prevalent, lactose creamy sweetness and a touch of vanilla. Earthy coffee and roasted malts really grow on the backend, making this a sweet stout that balances back towards roast on the backend. Smooth and silky, lingering roastiness and coffee grounds, quite a well balanced sweeter stout in my opinion. Tasty indeed. Probably the 2nd best "Sweet Stout" in regards to overall taste, balance, appearance, palate that I’ve ever had. Really surprised a Sweet Stout (which by nature, is lactose dominant) has such a roasty earthy coffee lingering finish. Very nice beer! I still give the nod to Depth Charge, but this is a great Sweet Stout.

Aroma is earthy/slightly dry malts and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is earthy/roasted malts, mild nuttiness and a tart/sourish finish. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2014
big thanks to hoopi, fantastic stuff. High nitro like carb, big lactosey aroma and sweet rich body that finidhes roasty and dry. Extremely drinkable, great great stuff. TimE (5808) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2016

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. KansaiBeerLvrs (5141) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2016
Bomber from Sake no Taniguchi, served in a snifter. I’d been meaning to try Revolution Brewing’s Mad Cow Milk Stout (7.5%) for awhile android finally got my hands in a bottle.
The ABV is kind of high for a Milk Stout but it pours a beautiful inky black with a tan head.
The aroma is savoury dark chocolate and molasses. Full bodied and smooth.
The taste is savoury, a bit roasty, smokey, nutty and rich milk chocolate.
This is a fine example of a robust or imperial milk stout.
