COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The combination of four different malts, along with a low hop level creates a deep dark beer featuring rich, sweet roasted flavors. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) adds complexity, body, and a residual sweetness lending a smooth creamy texture to this full-flavored brew. Once a Seasonal offering in the pub, now prominently featured due to popular demand.

16 oz can to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, only better and with more chocolate. Nice and smooth on the palate. Enjoyable.

PorterPounder (7678) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Sebring, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 16 oz can. Dark crimson fading into black pour. Earthy aroma with hints of black earth, licorice and coffee. Flavor has some nice licorice accents, plenty of chocolate and coffee with a finish of black earth. Mouthfeel is nice and sticky, Rochester Mills raised the bar on this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a black color with an enormous creamy-soapy brown head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish and toasty with notes of vanilla, marshmallow and chocolate. The flavor was toasty and mildly bitter with chocolate, vanilla and a lactic note. Long toasty chocolate and almost marshmallow finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Solid.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
MiBGF 07: Nearly opaque with a nice creamy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of bittersweet and milk chocolates, roasty malts, plum, smoke , lactic sourness and a bit yeasty. The taste has a nice creamy sweetness supported by mild acidity and lactic twang. The finish displays some coffee and hop bitterness. The mouth feel is creamy and smooth. This was a very solid brew and worth a try.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2005
On tap: Dark chocolate and roasted coffee aroma. Dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head. Okay lacing. Real light up front. Light roasted malt. NIce roasted coffee and dark chocolate finish. Light hops in the finish. Seems a little thin for a stout.

EithCubes (5715) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Pint can from VE. Nose nice dark roast, and surprisingly dry to my sniffer. Pour darker-than-cola brown with a large and foamy tan head. Light-watery body with low sweetness (surprising for style) and a high level of roast, not too much scorch, more on the nuttier side. Lightly airy, minimal fruit in the background, and some booze seeping through. Sort of aloof, distances itself from you, and as we all know, were often attracted to the things we cant have. Like the novelty here, though they call it a milk stout, a lot more like Beamish or Guinness than a syrupy-chocolaty mouth-filler. Dangerously repeatable, would love to have this again.

cheap (5579) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2015
From a can the look of this borders on a 5, nicely done without a widget. Fairly friendly gentle stout aroma. Head fades. Feel is hollow at times. Smooth going and easy, could have less of an apparent alky personality. Roasty stout personality. Hope nobody thinks this is going to taste anything like a milkshake, heheh.
