Had a happy accident at the brew kettle.. Got this little guy for free due to a beer mix up on delivery.

A - poured a beautiful black with 1 finger off white head. Head decimates quickly and almost no lacing.

S - getting a nice amount of chocolate.. Faint coconut..

T - full bodied, roasty, creamy.. Tastes of cream, chocolate, hints of coconut and lactose.

M - super easy to drink, very creamy the whole way. Reminded me of a roasty chocolate milk.

O - beautiful beer especially for free. Very easy and can session this all day. Will be returning for this beer.

On tap at the brew pub, presented with a nice looking pint. Dark black with a nice thick mocha head minimal lacing.
Smell is just sweet roast grain.
Taste is fantastic. Sweet hints at coconut and chocolate and it just lingers there getting better between sips. Just fantastic.
Mouth feel is smooth creamy, perfectly carbed
Overall this is a fantastic beer and so very refreshing and drinkable.

I love this beer. Tried it on tap a few nights ago then bought the first 6-pack I saw in a store. This is a tasty, TASTY beverage!

Thick, black in color. Little to no head retention. Smell is sweet with hints of coconut and maybe dark chocolate.

Flavor is high in milk chocolate, with some faint earthy stout tastes in the background. Big coconut flavor on and off, some sips you notice it and others you dont. A bit nutty. Someone else here mentioned a Mounds bar, and I'd say I agree with that.

If you are into this type of beer, then I am sure you will be fond of this one.

Had this on tap at the brewpub and it was so good I lugged a growler back 600 miles to NYC.

64oz Hill Farmstead growler into a Southampton oversize snifter... to really enjoy the aroma.

Pours a 1 finger light coffee head with poor retention. Beer is opaque black and full of carbonation. Lacing is spotty with little cling but decent legs.

Nose is coffee, roasted malt, milk chocolate, lactose, fudge, and mild coconut. Real sweet and rich but at the same time light and refreshing. Very nice.

Opens sweet chocolate, roasted malt, and coca cola. Mild vanilla, lactose, and coconut towards the middle. More lactose and sweet coffee at the end. Nutty finish with some sweet, roasted coconut in the aftertaste. Incredible. I don't think I've had better.

Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Bubbly in the mouth but smooths out as it warms and going down. Sticky finish with a lingering aftertaste. Perfect.

One thing to note is that this is mis-categorized as an imperial stout. It clocks in at 4.6% and is just a regular milk stout. Judging from that category, this is the runaway winner in that style. Just an incredible beer with such complexity and flavor and at the same time, such drinkability. Wish I could have this all the time.

On-tap at the Brew Kettle in Strongsville, OH...

A: Pours a nice deep black with about a half finger of mocha colored head. There is a slight amount of lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is sweet. I get hints of chocolate, caramel, and lacto sugar. I don't get a whole lot of coconut in the nose, but I'm ok with that.

T: Really nice. It's sweet, creamy, and slightly roasty. I'm picking up a ton of chocolate, a little caramel, and a dash of coconut. This is an underlying roasty quality that mixes wonderfully with the over the top sweetness of this beer.

M: Full bodied beer. It's super creamy, and the flavors linger on the palate forever. It's one of those beers where the more you drink it, the more you want to keep drinking it.

O: This is a really wonderful beer. If you ever make it out to the Brew Kettle, and you see this on tap, it's a must buy. Color me impressed.

Poured into shaker pint

A: very dark in appearance pretty decent creamy off white head good retention on the glass and lacing


S: This beer smells like dark chocolate and roast coffee has a little bit of an oatmeal taste too


T: Very chocolatey with coffee not as sweet as you expect slight off flavor at the end water maybe 


M: fairly thin but that's par for the course with a milk stout 

O: really liked the tastes on this one for a milk stout it was not bad it was a little thin but overall it was good and not too sweet on the finish. I'd drink this again if I ran across it
