Pours a deep brown with a small off white head. Aroma is malt, roast, chocolate. Flavor is roast, coffee, nuts, malt, chocolate. Nice slick mouthfeel with a sweet yet slightly bitter chalky finish.
Pours relatively dark with a moderate-sized foamy head. Aroma is weakly of chocolate and miscellaneous sweetness. I was a little surprised by the sweetness present in the flavor-fruits, floral, and a bit of malts are present. The body is disappointingly watery, though. Unfortunately, I tend to prefer thicker beers, so this effect was a little lost on me. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - APR 21, 2009
Sampled on 4/20/2009. This sweet stout pours a deep black color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized off-white foamy head with a quickly disappearing head. The aroma is chocolate and coffee. A medium bodied sweet stout. The malts are chocolate and coffee, roasty malts with some sweetness. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. The roasty/bitterness at the start is offset by the sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Pours a dark brown with reddish tinges. A small tan head that disappears quickly. The nose is smoky with notes of coffee and chocolate. Definitel malty sweetness in the background. Flavor is light with a nice sweetness. Definite coffee and a roasted almost burnt (not in a horrible way) flavor mid palate. I like Milk Stouts and this is another good one. Just a little lighter than some others. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Pours a transparent deep mahogany with ruby hues and a large, frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet caramely malt with lots of milk chocolate character and a hint of light fruits. Body starts fairly full and sweet with some lactose flavor and light roasty bitterness. Finishes smooth and semi-sweet with lingering milk chocolate. A decent milk stout, but could use a richer aroma.

Bottle. Steamboat Co. The Working Man’s stout. That’s a good name for it. It’s not too overpowering, but has some notes of fruit and chocolate. That1Guy (2238) - Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2011 Complete rerate. Last time I had this it was obviously old and oxidized. Pours black with a tan head, slightly sticky. Dominated by sweet chocolate and a bit of roast on the nose. Very nice, smooth flavor of mostly milk chocolate with a sweet, somewhat roasty finish. Nice brew.

Pours dark brown with a thin off white head. Smells of cocoa, some dark fruit. Tastes of sweet malt, tarte, some raisins, molasses. What’s with the tartness in all their stouts and porters? nbutler11 (1305) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Pours a thin black color from the bottle with a trim tan head. Smells and tastes of wood chips, mild hops, hazelnut, and bakers cocoa. Has a dry mouthfeel that lingers on the finish. Tastes like a smokey nut brown rather than a milk stout. MatSciGuy (924) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2009
[Bottle] shared by Guerde. Pours a nearly opaque clear brown with a smallish tan head. Aroma is beef stew, roasted barley, lactose, and teriyaki sauce. Flavor matches with a medium mouthfeel and a dry finish.
