Single can from Binnys, Downers Grove. Frothy brown head over a brownish black body. Chocolate nose, but not quite as roasty, thanks to the oatmeal. I note the texture first, since its been carbonated, and thats worth noting after so many stouts with nitro and widgets. But its also leaving some stickiness on my lip and has a hint of a tangy Guinness sour note, followed more of that chocolate roast. Then there is a slight note of vanilla once my palate has been brought into equilibrium. An enjoyable session beer to welcome back cold weather, though being in a full pint can may make it seem a bit less sessionable.

Tap - Looks good, pours black with brown edges, resilient tope head. Coarse lace. Aroma is coffee, roasted nuts, cocoa. Nice carbonation on the tongue. Roasted earthiness. Nice breathy finish of coffee and cocoa. Great but not elite.

12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 6/8/2017. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, light pepper, slight smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, light pepper, slight smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast/hop bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great milk stout! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, almost refreshing. Very flavorful, with a nice body and mouthfeel for the low ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured out of the can a deep almost black with a thick tan head. Lovely chocolate and cream aroma. Love love the flavor, just so easy to like with perfect creaminess and sweetness, although a bit more roast in the finish for that espresso type finish would have been a nice counter punch. SO happy though to find this in Mississippi.....best thing I can think of that I can find locally.

crusianbeer (116) - Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Can from mcnellies in tulsa. Pours into a guiness glass thicker and blacker than I thought. About a finger of head. Sweet Chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. Very mild nose, moreso than I would have liked, but on par with a milk stout. Very sweet milky smoothness, but ends with a bitter finish. Much drier than any other milk stout I have ever had. Chocolate and roast on the palate. Not bad for a 5% stout. They pack a lot of flavor in it.

Butters (4050) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Sampled at the Richmond 14th Gathering. Nice very dark brown pour with thin tan head. Roasty and chocolate and not vegetal at all. A little watery thin, but good for the style. Love that this is being canned.

16 ounce can, 11 238 stamped on the bottom side of it. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some coffee. The taste is just like the aroma, with a good balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, its a little on the thin side but also a bit coating with moderate carbonation. Its smooth and very easy to drink. I think its a solid overall brew, Id buy this again.
