A-Pours a dark brown. Thin, watery body is evident by the pour and how it rests in the glass. A condensed, creamy head with speckles of lacing.

S-Very dull. A bit off, too. Like powdered Ovaltine. Not much roast; not much of anything besides that suspicious powdery chocolate note.

T-The flavor is light but still manages to be unappealing. Powdery chocolate and lactose with a slight metallic twang.

M-Light but creamy. Body is too thin. Bubbles are mild.

O/D-Did not enjoy this one.

Poured from 16 oz. can into a pint glass.
A - Pours dark with a thin quickly disappearing head. Zero lacing on glass.
S - Light chocolate aroma but not a lot of aroma from this pour.
T - Initial chocolate with sweetness of a milk stout.
M - Thin mouthfeel. Not a bold stout but as a milk stout this is expected.
O - A thin bodied stout with not a lot to it. M Sweet Stout is not my choice of stouts though. This would be a good "style transition" beer.

Thick, gooey, and black. Tan head is full and thick with good retention.

Nose is lacking. Hints of toffee, caramel, sweet malt, milk chocolate, lactose, and a light roasty quality. Just somewhat out there.

Sweet toffee and caramel malt. With a sour milk taste in the mid palate. Virtually no finish. Hints of vanilla and milk chocolate. A blueberry, black raspberry lingers as it warms up.

Mouthfeel is thin and week overall a beer that is just missing in all the right places.

Reviewed on 6/21/2010. On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, smoked malt, and a hint of lactose. Flavor of lactose with bitter chocolate, also there is sort of an odd tartness. A decent stout but odd tasting and the lactose and chocolate malt flavors did not quite come together.
