Thanks to Bobby for this one.
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a mild off-white head forming on top.
S: Very astringent and acidic roasted malts start this one off and there's a mild sweetness to it as well. Definitely not a pleasant or enjoyable nose.
T: A little better as I take the first sip. Some chocolate, milk sugar, and again the acidic/acrid roast. There's a bit of a spoiled milk quality to this beer, which is not really my thing.
M: The body is medium, maybe a bit light, with a medium level of carbonation.
D: I've never heard of this brewery before and I sort of wish that was still the case. Just not good at all.

Dark mahogany brown with a quick rise- and fall- of gray-beige suds. Lacing is modest.
A whiff of roasted grain and some sweet lacto/brown sugar noses that congeal to approximate toffee and milk chocolate. The nose could use a boost in overall volume, but its nice enough.
The flavor profile is washed out to a point where I wondered if I had somehow mistakenly diluted by half with water. Touches of toasty/roasty grain. Some noted lacto/milk chocolate sweetness. A waft of smoke. And a bit of herbal bitterness. And a whole lotta wet emptiness.
The mouthfeel compounds matters with its waif, frail body and overabundance of carbonation. This is the absolutel opposite of how something like this should feel.
Mildly chocolately flavored water. Drinkable in that regard, I guess.

Pours dark, almost black, with a 1.5 finger foamy tan head. Reduces slowly, leaves decent lacing and a bubbly film on top.
Smell is milk chocolate, some roast malts, a little coffee. Pretty standard, and pretty tame. Nothing special.
Taste is milk chocolate, a light tanginess that's pretty off-putting, maybe a little bit of roast? Very one dimensional, not very good.
Mouthfeel is okay. A little thin, but not bad.
Very average milk stout. Not really worth seeking out.

12 oz. bottle poured into a CCB snifter.
Appearance - Dark brown, but not completely opaque with a quickly receding light brown head. Almost gone by the time I got to the table with it. Looks like a porter more than a stout.
Smell - Roasty, bits of chocolate. The smell isn't overwhelming. What I would expect from a weak stout.
Taste - The taste is immediately chocolate and coffee bitterness, giving way to... nothing. It has almost no back end flavor. Nothing gross or sickly, which I was a bit afraid of. Just nothing.
Mouthfeel - Very watery, not thick at all. High carbonation makes it feel like coffee made from club soda.
Overall - I feel like I panned it in the review, even though there was nothing offensive about it. It's easy to drink. I didn't find myself wanting to pour it out. Just didn't have much to it.

2.9/5 rDev -15%
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into St. Bernardus goblet. Purchased from Woodman's in Madison WI for $8.99/6 pack. No brew date. Drank while watching Back To The Future III on 02-21-2011.
Appearance: Appearance is dark brown/black with thin lacing and light brown/cream head. Head was very small and did not last long.
Smell: initial scent has some nice sweet malt to it...lactose. Limited roast to it, not much aroma there at all.
Taste: Very mild sweetness, was expecting more, and got more out of a tap sampling I had at the brewery in early December. Small roasted notes, not overly sweet.
Mouth: Alot of carbonation. Feels borderline fizzy.
Drink and Overall: It is drinkable, that's for sure. A nice session beer with decent overall flavor. A beer with flavor that I could drink numerous of.

3.2/5 rDev -6.2%
A - Pours a deep ruby brown, almost cherry cola colored, with a nice rich tan head that disappears fairly quickly. Minimal lacing.
S - Malty, sweet, almost candy notes.
T - Really just ok. Tastes a lot like a basic stout. I like something a little creamier in this style. It's not a bad roast malt taste, but just not much else to it. Aftertaste is a little sour and clingy.
M - For a stout, it's pretty thin.
D - Not bad, but again, in a milk stout I prefer something a little smoother.
Milk stouts have been one of my favorite styles since I first had Mackeson Triple years ago. They've since taken Mackeson off the market and this style is becoming harder and harder to find. This isn't a horrible version, but there's nothing special about it. It's a decent beer with nothing remarakable going on.
