FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
12 ounce bottle- poured out a slightly translucent chestnut brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma was dark cherries and chocolate. The taste was an almost cloyingly sweet chocolate cherry with a wet cardboard finish. Palate was smooth, but overwhelmed by the sweet cherry. Not Smiths best.

Murrow (97) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours black, light tan head. Bright, sweet aroma of caramel and vanilla. Flavor is light and sweet without being cloying. Mild roast character. Mostly get sweet notes. Dark fruit, mild chocolate. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking sweet chocolate stout.

Aragh (246) - POLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Kolor brunatny, piana obfita, utrzymująca się, oblepiająca szkło. W zapachu bardzo mocno czekolada i trufle. W smaku zdecydowanie słodki, intensywna deserowa czekolada, praliny, wanilia, śmietanka. Absolutnie brak jakiejkolwiek gorzkiej czy wytrawnej kontry. Średnia pełnia, nasycenie wysokie jak na styl. Bardzo ciekawe, ale jednowymiarowe.

nasty3939 (21) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Ive had this beer many times and has always been delicious. They are so consistent. Aroma and flavor go hand-in-hand as the rich chocolate hits your nose with the same impact as the flavor hits your tongue.

Mindwarp (222) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a dark black with a nice tan head and nice lacing. All I can smell is milk chocolate and that is a good thing. Taste is of milk chocolate but not as strong as the aroma. This is a good chocolate stout not as chocolatey as Southern Tiers Choklat but still really good.

krumbum (1097) - truckee, California, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Big milk chocolate aromas. Dark black with brown head. Thin body lets the chocolate flavor slide in and go down like an Easter basket. Sweet and creamy yet thin, but really Fucking good.

tmzl (292) - SLOVENIA - FEB 11, 2017
Amazing milk chocolate on the nose and in the mouth, pleasant medium sweetness. Caramel. Also fresh, light roasted bitterness, a bit mineral.

Foerdifuxx (296) - Franconia, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2017
Pitch black beer with a brownish, medium sized, good lasting, head. Aromas of sweet peach, dark fruits, sugar, chocolate milk, faint spicy and earthy hops. Taste is similar to aroma, but more dark fruits here and some mint(?), sugar sweet with a dry finish, bit unpleasant sticky sweet floral perfume from grandma. Light to medium body, average carbonation, oily texture.

PanMarek (352) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Black, opaque pour with dense, beige head that lasts. Malty chocolate in the nose with a touch of anise. The taste is similar and brings out vanilla, brown sugar and a little nutty element. Heavy, smooth texture with little fizz. An excellent variation on a milk stout. The sweet flavor is not cloying or unctuous and the relatively low alcohol makes it less ponderous than other, similar stouts.

craftbeersweden (629) - SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2017
A dark brown beer with a two finger high, beige-brown head that leaves lacing on the glass.

Nose: Vanilla, brown sugar, milk chocolate and syrup.
Taste: Caramel malt, vanilla, brown sugar, lactose, chocolate and a litle bit of coffee.
Mouth: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet, very sweet. No bitterness.
