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 arms 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 its pour suggest. This stout doesnt 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.

eaglefan538 (3033) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - 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!

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.

Vanilla and chocolate on the nose. Pours dark brown/black with a thick tan head. Coffee upfront with a lot of chocolate and vanilla, a lot more fuller flaovor than some milk stouts. Thick on the palate. Great milk stout.
