Bottle from Total Wine in Huntersville, NC. Pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma is a bit of lactose and cocoa. Taste is strange, hard to characterize. Perhaps extra roasted with a touch of burnt something. Good, but not great.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Heavy black color with brown and ruby undertones and a full and lasting light tan head. Good lacing. Chocolate and coffee mix nicely in the aroma but it is all suppressed by too much of an alcohol smell. An easy feel to this beer that goes along with some sweet chocolate and plum flavor. Finish is moderatly bitter with a nut flavor on the back of the tongue. Decent but seemed like a strange mixture.

OK for a milk stout. Sweeter than most. Not as heavy as I expected. Good overall.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Decent chocolaty malt on the nose at an arm’s length. Pours red molasses in color. Almost black. Vigorous tan frothy head holds together. Full chocolaty flavor with out an aftertaste. Very smooth. Very easy on the palate. Not as suripy as it’s pour suggest. This stout doesn’t assault your buds with a excess of bitter endings, but is a nice-an-easy drinking stout. Not a feather weight nor a heavy weighed brew, but nicely in the middle.

WBF-Raleigh. Dark ruby brown body with a small light brown body. Sweet malty aroma. Dry roasted malt flavor with some chocolate hints.

User37895 (3042) - - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle, courtesy Shag/Clash. Poured a mahoganey brown, not as dark as the porter I had right before this one. Normal off-white to tannish head, lacing was decent, nothing spectacular for the style, though. The aroma was coffee-choco notes, probably a little more of roasted coffee than the chocolate. The flavor followed suit along with a cherry type flavor. Finished sweet, but not as sweet as the Porter (odd, given this was the "sweet" stout). Lacto notes practically lost. A decent brew, a little thin for what I was expecting. Thanks, Matt!

thebaldwizard (1207) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle from Turd. Very creamy coffee aroma is nice. Black body with a thin head. Full palate for a sweet. Taste matches the aroma and this is very easy to drink.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2007
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Some lacing. Has nice sweet lactose taste throughout brew. Has hints of roasted malts and barley, and finishes heavy bodied with nice sweet taste on tongue.
