Love this milk stout from revolution. Strong black coffee flavor and bitterness with a milk backbone. Had this out of a bomber at home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft taster, June 7. Deep black, with a thin head. Smell has some light chocolate, but the taste goes much deeper to cocoa country. Warming alcohol gives this an impression of a chocolate cordial. Overall impression is sweet, with a bit of roastiness and hoppiness in the background.

Tap @ Revolution: Deep, black center with dark ruby edges; a light beige collar rests around the edges of the brew. Aroma is outlined with a HUGE dried prune character & big, leafy tobacco notes. Large earthiness with a dark fruit, offsetting sweetness. Not what I expected from this lactose brewed milk stout, but I dig the prune-tobacco combo nonetheless. The taste is a replication of the aroma; huge notes of prune, dried dates, leafy tobacco, & some earthy char. I can detect a very moderate, dry cocoa bean flavor in the finish, but it certainly seems tertiary. I normally don’t favor stouts with heavy dark fruit flavors, but the prune aspect isn’t overly sweet here, & the earthy tobacco elements balance everything nicely. A nice stout.

Black pour with a three finger, fluffy tan head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, sweet malt, caramel, a little char, lactose and sweet nutty notes. Flavor is roast, chocolate, dark fruit and bread crust up front, then a big wave of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, dark caramel and lactose sweetness in the middle, finishes with lingering lactose, dark fruit, roast and chocolate, some dry leaves, piney and grassy hops. Medium to heavy body, creamy to gloopy entry, light, but very blanketing and quite sharp carbonation and gloopy to slightly dry finish. Good stuff overall, a little too gloopy, and the dark fruit notes just do not work well with the rest of the beer, or possibly and milk stout.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, via trade. Clear deep reddish brown with a frothy light tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel and light roasted coffee. Flavor is sweet chocolate malt, caramel and a faint roasty bitterness. Medium body with a silky mouth feel. Good sweet stout, lots of chocolate flavor and not overly sweet.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 On tap at Revolution. Dark black pour with a thin head in a tulip glass. Nice nose of roast and chocolate with some of that lactose. The roast and bitterness balances out the sweetness well overall. Overtime it gets to be a little too sweet. But a solid milk stout for sure. 7/4/73/15

22 oz bottled version. The lactose is still a little too much. But the roast and chocolate balance it out well enough. Not too sweet. It works decently well 7/4/7/3/7/15
