"I miss the old Widmer winter seasonal, snow plow (kinda sorta a 5% version of this beer). The alcohol makes the body a little more robust but not quite as epically smooth as the old Standby. Milk chocolate and roast abound, though, and for $5, a good deal too." NikkTwist (3342) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Draft at Moriartys. Is this new? Not expecting to find a brand new beer here. But anyways ... Opaque brown pour with a nice pillowy brown head that died to a light foam after 5 minutes. Dark vanilla nutty aroma. Tasting black coffee. Chestnuts. Vanilla Tootsie Rolls. Some creamy elements bring some fullness but the darker notes provide most of the flavor. Semi-sweet chocolate. Charcoal. Burnt marshmallows. Creamy middle but a slightly bitter finish - not in a bad way. If the finish were sweet one would get sick of this quickly but the bitter finish proves oddly thirst quenching, so one keeps on keeping on. Feels like a Milk Stout but without the bloated feeling. Someone thought this brew through and I appreciate it. robforbes (2266) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2012

Bottle: Very dark brown pour, darker tan head. Soft aroma of dark chocolate and roast. Same traits in the taste... silky mouthful. A little espresso. Really smooth and seamless from roast to cocoa. schmidtguy (39) - Englevale, North Dakota, USA - JAN 18, 2013

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hearty super-dark brown pour with a light brown crown. Rich roast aroma, coffee and chocolate notes. Hearty roasted malt with a nice sweetness and acidity that keeps this highly drinkable despite it being quite full-bodied. Yum! AaronDaniel (53) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours black with an ample fluffy tan head that laces nicely. Smells like sweet malts, bread, milk, and barley. It has a very subtle flavor (like Guinness- but a little more full and complex), with mild carbonation. It tastes like creamy malt and cereal, then finishes with soft grassy hops. This is a good milk stout, but I’ve had better. Don’t get me wrong: I didn’t NOT enjoy this brew. It is good drinking. It seems like the more I drink, the creamier it gets. The more I drink, the more I like it. williamstome (1989) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2013
Deep black pour, medium dark brown head. Soft chocolaty aroma. Creamy, chocolaty flavor; very tasty! Hanuta06 (486) - Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles.
Aroma: light chocolate aroma.
Appearance: large, rocky, light-brown, initial head with mostly diminishing longevity and very good lacing. Dark-brown/black body.
Taste: moderately chocolatey initial taste and dark-roasted, moderately bitter finish with long duration.
Palate: full bodied with oily texture and lively carbonation.
Overall: very good. Lots of flavor. I’d like to try this again. JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle purchased at Vicker’s Liquors and opened on the fourth of July, this year. Darkest brown in color with a huge tan head. Malty and roasty nose with notes of chocolate and cream. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a creamy lactose character before a bitter coffee finish. Pretty nice.
