tap at Dash In - Pours black with a small light tan head. The aroma is of roast malt and chocolate. It has a sweet malt flavor with roast character and lactose notes. Full bodied, this brew has some bitterness coming through in the finish. Very good brew. madmitch76 (25801) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012

ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Light dry palate. Mild dark malts with a little chocolate and lacto sweetness. Semi dry finish. All right.
Bottle. Poured a black color with a one finger foamy velvet head. Nice of aroma of cocoa, coffee bean, cream, tootsie roll. Medium sweetness. Light bitter. Creamy texture. Medium body. Light carbonation. Taste is like the aroma. Pretty good. Like the higher alchohol on the milk stout. Not sure I had a high alcohol one. Aurelius (5589) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Nearly opaque, brown-black beer, with a skimmy light tan head. Good label. Olivine, cold water, lightly fruity, roasted aroma. Tangy, a little metallic in the middle, sweetish, cola. Medium-heavy body. Quick, sweet finish. ABC Liquors, Bull Run. Cybercat (6208) - Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Comes out of the bottle dark-chocolate brown with a fairly thick and rather persistent frothy, fine-bubbled wheaten head that leaves fairly thick lacing. Aroma has a core of roast, slightly burnt malt with notes of molasses, licorice and coffee. Lip-smacking flavor has notes of roast malt, mocha and molasses, with nutty and earthy hints. Smooth, firm texture has a decent amount of fizz and leaves a nice smoky, slightly sweet finish.

Bonus courtesy of markwise. 12oz bottle pours dark brown with tan head of foam. The aroma has some nice chocolate and then it heads toward earthy malts and an echo of dark roasted malts. The taste is similar with some sweet malts riding into a bit of chocolate and earthiness. In between those notes are slivers of dark roasted malts. Overall the sweetness takes the lead in the flavor profile ahead of the various dark roasted notes. starewich (170) - - OCT 4, 2012
The doubled strength comes across mostly as the added taste of booze (just how much darker can beer get, anyway?) and relegates the milkiness to an afterthouht. A good stout for sure, but others are both better and easier to find. I do appreciate the relative prominence of the hops that usually are subtle at best in dark beers. jason1970 (143) - Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Very mild for what they claim is a hard core stout with lots of flavor. It’s not bad by any means, just average really. Has the usual chocolate, malt and coffee that is prevalent in most stouts, but nothing really pops in either the aroma or taste. I don’t have much experience with milk stouts, but I think I prefer oatmeal stouts based on my recent tastings. badgerben (5341) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Black color with no head. Aroma of fresh cut grass. Bitter pine flavor. Quite astringent and bitter. Is this a mis-labeled Black IPA? Murrow (112) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottled 3/14/12. Pours deep brown to black with beige head. Light, sharp aroma of dark chocolate and fruit. Mellow toffee and caramel up front, developing into a nice mix of hop and malt bitterness. Warm alcohol finish. Rich mouthfeel, medium to full-bodied. Very easy-drinking, pleasant milk stout.
