Aroma is chocolate malt with milk notes. Pours black with creamy off white head. Taste is strong chocolate malt with some creaminess. Finishes smooth with chocolate note lingering. Good milk stout, but still inferior to left hand's.

Deep black pour, medium dark brown head. Soft chocolaty aroma. Creamy, chocolaty flavor; very tasty! DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left.
3.25 S: Roasted barley, tangy lactose, licorice. Some caramel, molasses, and maybe a note of coffee.
3.0 T: I’m not too crazy about the taste. It’s a little too roasty or perhaps not sweet enough. The roast clashes with the lactose. It’s not bad, just not what I want in the style. Roast, lactose, molasses, caramel. Less licorice than in the nose, but still some. Not much coffee either.
3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A little creamy, but I want more. Roasty aftertaste.
3.0 D: Again, it’s okay, just not attuned to my preferences.

Black pour with a small creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of ash. Flavor presents a nice roasted character with bittersweet chocolate, coffee and creamy sweetness. Medium bodied with a sweet finish. Solid offering from Widmer. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Overall very nice stout, lots of coffee and chocolate flavors, roasted aroma, full body. A little sweet, would definitely do again.

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy chocolate-khaki colored head atop. The head fades down at a fairly slow pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, lactose sweetness, some earthy hops, black licorice, and coffee.
T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some lactose sweetness and black licorice. Through the middle, some roasted coffee comes through with some earthy hops and some more lactose. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, coffee, lactose, and earthy hops.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, roasted, and lightly sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice balanced milk stout with a good finish. jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a thin tan head. Mild roasted malt aroma with a touch of coffee. Pretty good amount of carbonation for a milk stout. Much appreciated bitterness in the finish with only minimal sweetness up front. jw0406 (1276) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a black color with an off white color. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Good kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 Pours black with terrific head and a good upper ring of lacing. Aroma - piney IPA nose (not appropriate for the style!) along with more appropriate chocolate and milk notes. Watery, alcoholic, piney, funky mess at first, but thankfully finishes well - milk and chocolate hit at the end and leave a good lingering sweetness. All over the place and very inconsistent, though there are some highlights. Will finish the bomber, but do not want to get again. NEXT DAY UPDATE: Said I would finish the bomber - I don’t always drainpour stuff between 1.5 and 2.5 - but after making grimaces while drinking this again, a close associate said I might as well dump the thing, and I did.

Pours black with a thick, resilient dark chocolate head. Aroma is creamy, chocolate, coffee, hint of smoke. Flavor is similar; sweet, creamy, chocolate, smoke with a bitter chocolate finish. Some nice dark lacing. Full bodied, creamy, chewy. My favorite element was this subtle smokiness. It took this Sweet Stout in a direction that I was not expecting but very much enjoyed.
