Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a fine cap of tan head. The aroma was on the sweet and lightly roasty side, with milk chocolate and heavy cream leading.. a hint of sour charred black malts on the back.. sweet and desserty. The flavor found sweet chocolates and lesser vanilla at the core with milky sugars laced throughout.. touches of coffee and molasses on the edges.. finished with sweet milk chocolates and butter cream. Light-medium bodied and very sweet on the palate.. smooth flow across the palate with complementary lactose-like tanginess on the back. This was very, very drinkable.

One of my favorite beer names and a new state for me. This beer pours black and red with a short lived tan head. Visually, it reminds me of a thin version of the style. A big roasted and coffee aroma with some dark fruit noted as the coffee settled. Flavor is muddled. Coffee and cream stand out but hops are in the background that don’t compliment. Some molasses, dark fruit, smoked peat. Warmer temps smoothed some of the rough edges but not quite enough to call this above average.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 16 oz. can thanks to GrandaddyKC. Dark black color, with white head that retained. Aroma is dark roasted barley, sugar, small amounts of coffee and cream. Flavor is nice level of chocolate, sweet lactose, roasted barely and mild burnt coffee. Good lingering roast character. My favorite aspect of this brew is the creamy texture, very velvet like. Damn nice sweet stout, thanks Brad!

16oz can: pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted malty nose with some milk chocolate character. Body starts with effervescent carbonation and light caramel malty sweetness with plenty of chocolate and light roast before a slightly drier nutty finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Dark brown color/ fleeting head. Nice dark roasted malt, coffee, mocha aromas. Light to medium body. Lightly sweet chocolate mocha flavors with mild roasty malts, a bit thin.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Can:   Deep dark brown, thin light beige head, sparce lacing.   Sweet lactose and soft roasted malts.   Faint bakers chocolate too.   Not as flavorful on the tongue.   Soft roasted malts, softer lactose like sweetness.   On the lighter side, could use a little bit more to make it a bit silkier.   Soft sweet roasted malts linger.   Simple, decent, clean, but wished it were a bit chewier.

Aroma is chocolate malts and coffee bitterness. The flavor is chocolate, cream, sweetness and a fruit/acidity in the finish.

Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Can. Exceptionally beautiful pour for an American stout ... towering head of off-white foam over a pitch-black brew. The aroma is full of warming roasts. Although a little thin, the beer drinks with a nice rounded roasty flavor as well ... with a moderate bitter chocolate finish. Good stuff. (#4137, 6/12/2011)

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2010
16 oz can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is very roasty with a hefty lactose sugar note. Some coffee creamer, burnt malt, and a very minimal hop note. The flavor is a little overly sweet, even for a lactose stout. It’s totally overpowering the rest of the beer. It does finish a little better with some dark-roast coffee and roast. It comes across as a little too thin in its maltiness, a litllte more might help to balance out the lactose some. Medium bodied, slightly slick and oily in texture with minimal soft carbonation. Stll fairly drinkable, but not one to contemplate for too long.

ajnepple (6622) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2015
On tap at Boonie’s on the Avenue. Black appearance with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, pretty sweet with a light earthy bitterness. Medium body with a smooth creamy feel. A little too sweet for my liking but still pretty good.
