Zaprozdower (66) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Pours a rich mahogany with a very thick head. Aroma was very nutty with some chocolate nuts as well. Taste is very much what the aroma promises but with a slight something I’ve encountered only in some dark lagers I’ve had in Germany. Beer warms quickly and hits hard for its APV...interesting beer.

wood28601 (1) - Hickory, Alabama, USA - MAR 22, 2017 does not count
Poured with little carbonation. Sweet aroma. Taste of mocha with a bit less sweetness. Thicker on the tongue but not heavy.wwll balanced. Sweet and bitter blend extremely. I usually only do stouts in winter but this has year round drinkabiliry due to its light yet complex flavors.

jc1762 (1435) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle poured into a pilsner showing pitch black with coffee black rims and very sparse latte colored foam. The nose shows a lactose sweet note throughout on top of a bed of roasted malts. The palate is light bodied with light carbonation. Immediate subtle lactose sweetness appears but closer to a soybean-like sweetness. Barely any bitterness. A bit thin on flavor all around and a very simple milk stout.

3.5
TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with khaki colored head. Baking cocoa powder, caramel malt, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a cocoa sweetness.

3.6
dliberto (217) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Pours a jet black color with a small dark beige foam head. Aroma consists of chocolate, nuts, coffee, and licorice. Taste is semi-sweet with milk chocolate dominating the tongue. Body is full and the mouthfeel is creamy. Nice beer.

Pours a deep brown to black with a brown head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, and some coffee. Taste the same with a little smoke and lactose sweetness. Very complex ale. Light to medium mouth feel. Very nice beer.
