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 (5360) - 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 (7133) - 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. mixinnixon2000 (226) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 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. Whatís with the tartness in all their stouts and porters? nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - 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 (907) - 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. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2008
12oz bottle notched the first week of May from Sparky27--thanks Eric! Clear deep brown with a small beige head, fading down to a ring and small island of foam in the middle of my glass before long. Milok chocolate and coffee up front in the aroma with a little bit of toffee. Nice. Flavor manages to keep the milk chocolate intact pretty well with the aforementioned coffee and some added roasty malts. The finish turns slightly wet cardboardish with some ashy char, and bitterness peaked around a 2. The finish was semi-dry. Low carbonation with a slightly watery body. Worth trying again at some point if it were on tap and nothing crazy were available. Overall, not too bad--though anything would taste good after the stupid t Smisje beer.
