Pours a dark brown with a medium brown head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt and hints of milk chocolate, coffee, caramel, and vanilla. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Decent but quite a sweet stout.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2012 This is not bad... but sweet... I guess I rate my milk stout off left hand. This one is a bit more sweet. Not bad not great.... but its in a can.. id get it for backpacking. Rerate... its really good. The true challenge... body can very ... If they can get it consistent... it may beat left hands milk stout. For now, it cant stand.

This is a solid sweet stout. Moderate roast, with some coffee and chocolate, and well done lacto quality. Very smooth palate.

tmoreau (4089) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 16 oz. can shared at a recent group tasting and poured to a sampler with a very dark brown hue, fluffy, tan head foam, and nice cling to the curtainy lacing. The aroma was light roast with an ultra milk chocolate scent and creamy sweetness. The flavor was similar, with low hop bitterness, but thin texture, low carbonation, and light to medium body. Tasty, but the flavor disappointed in comparison to the exceptional nose. On tap the next time at the Cornerstone Pub in Baileys Harbor, WI.. Presented an added touch of ruby highlighting to the black/brown color and same impressive appearance. With roastiness, a little burnt, with some day old coffee taste, creaminess to the mouthfeel, but somewhat watery texture. Same conclusion.

16oz can as a trade extra. Black in color with a massive, dense tan head that looks almost nitro-like. The aroma is dampened a bit by the big ol head it seems, but some roast and dark chocolate poke through. Very roasty and even ashy flavor with bittersweet dark chocolate and a hint of espresso. A bit thin on the mouthfeel with average carbonation level. The description says, "It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste." Well, that sure didnt happen - it tasted like a normal sweet stout.

cheap (5635) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
From a pounder can. sweet volatile and stouty aroma, but not like an impy stout. Very attractive black beer look, no head. Taste is not as bitter as expected and is quite laid back for a stout. Good smooth flavors almost tart at times but never quite gets there, nevertheless, it is a pleasant aspect of the beer. The palate morphs, it goes from a sizzle to nearly a flat in aabout 5 seconds in the mouth. Nice black beer drinken experience. Finish is almost roasty bitter but pulls back. Gets better as the session continues. Enjoyed this big can.

A bit more coffee in the nose and taste than I care for, but not a bad beer in my opinion.
