Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Black in color with a very small beige head. aroma is of mocha, hot chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and marshmallow. Taste is a lot like a 3 musketeers bar with chocolate, mocha and marshmallow. SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2009
22 oz. bottle - thanks riversideak!! light brown with thin tan head; texture is thin and it drinks smooth; kind of a cross between a porter and stout; aromas of chocolate, sweet candy, vanilla and touch of spice; very nice, but didn’t jump out much to me Palidor19 (3188) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2009
aroma is a bit weak, some sweetness and the slight kibble like smell. there is a sweetness with a touch of coffee and fruit. smooth around but gives some over fizz. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2009
The aroma is good except for a touch of cat food. There is also cream, coffee, chocolate, and toasted malt. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma minus the cat food. The palate is average for the style. Overall it’s a nice tasting, quality beer. bvc (1242) - Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2009
22oz bottle shared by riversideAK. Pours dark dark brownish black in color with a thinner looking body and a condensed off-white head. Nose is mildly roasty with some sweeter mocha notes. Taste is more of the same, with some smooth creaminess but not a overly thick. Good and easy drinking.

Bottle from BeerBunker. Dark pour, almost black, thin foamy head. The aroma is somewhat roasty with a good amount of sweetness too. Dark chocolate, mocha, roast, a little soy, and a touch of lactic flavors too. Smooth and very drinkable. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Sample from my man StFun - thanks, Josh! Been eager to try this, and the beer did not disappoint. The mouthfeel wasn’t quite as thick as I’d like, but it was still lovely and rich. Love the play of the creamy palate and the lactic flavors, but there’s a surprisingly deep hop presence to this too, and a long dark chocolate finish. Nice one! emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2009

Sampled at Backus’ Backyard Bash. Dark brown with no head. Yep, it’s a milk stout, 3F style. A stupid sweet chick beer, IMO. Not bad, but not for me, either. Nice velvety mouthfeel. Chocolaty and lactic, 3F yeasty, typical 3F hop profile. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
