3.29/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pretty close to straight up black. Some super dark brown at the edges when held to direct light. Head is khaki and super creamy. Drops to a thin cap and smallish creamy collar that persists for the duration. Some splotches of lacing.

Smell: Roasted chocolate. Chocolate malts with a big helping on lactose. Milky sweet chocolate. So much chocolate. Grainy roasted malt. Touch of alcohol and grass in the back. Not a ton of complexity, but what it has is nice.

Taste: Melt a Tootsie Roll down and roast that bad boy and that's this beer. Milky sweet with a ton of lactose sugar sweetness. Incredibly sweet. Crystallized chocolate candy. Boozy. Gritty cocoa bitterness on the back. Chalk. Some vanilla and something almost woody. Licorice and something slightly smoky. Bitter from cocoa. Hops are non-existent.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth. Super creamy. Medium body with a moderate carbonation. A bit dry on the finish.

Overall: I wasn't tempted, but I was intrigued before the diabeetus kicked in.

Entirely too sweet overall. Dial back the lactose a touch and it would be a solid milk stout, very solid.

3.36/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Served in a Three Floyds Teku glass

A - Black, pours medium tan head, soapy lacing, slight persistent head rings glass throughout.

S - Medium High roasty bitter chocolate malts on the front, finishes with a moderate alcohol bite and a slight smokiness.

T - Medium-High Lactose on the front, then Medium Chocolate and Roasted malts take over the palate and finishes with a medium high anise smokiness. Aftertaste is moderately sweet, bitter chocolate, roasty with a slight acidic smokiness that lingers.

M - Medium bodied, Moderate carbonation, Alcohol warmth present throughout and with a very biting finish (almost like taking a shot of alcohol). Medium-High creaminess. Tongue slickness is very much like an oatmeal stout.

O - Too much roasted malts in this for my liking, but a very well balanced beer. I would love to be able to try a bourbon barrel aged or coffee version, as I think it would balance the malt bill and compliment the flavors very well.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for giving me this bottle (months ago)

Consumed 7/24/13

Appearance: Black from a distance, more of a dark, deep brown in the light - pours with a small, creamy, beige head - more or less keeps a cap - leaves some nice streaks and spots of lacing

Smell: Chocolate, roasted malts, and sugar - dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and some semisweet chocolate chips - moderately roasty, with a touch burnt, lots of chocolate malts - loads of lactose, with a milky sweetness and a straight-up dose of sugar - some dark fruits and alcohol in the back

Taste: Roasty dark chocolate sprinkled with sugar - dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa - roasted and lightly burnt malts - some dark fruit sweetness and caramel - tons of lactose sugar and white sugar - it's like someone added Coffee Mate to burnt milk chocolate - definitely malty, but the sheer amount of sugary sweetness is too much - candy-like at times - some slight alcohol as well

Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of medium, nicely carbonated, smooth, kind of a sticky finish because of all the sugar

Overall: I'm certainly tempted to not give this a great score

I understand that a Milk/Sweet Stout is supposed to be sweet. But this is a bit much. It's literally more sugary than a glass of chocolate milk. There is some nice depth to the malts, and some roast, but overall this is not exactly what I'm looking for in the style.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle

Pours a deep dark black color with a light tan head. The aroma is sweet dark roasted malts, cocoa, and a touch of smoke. The taste like the aroma starts out with sweet dark roasted malts with a lingering sweet and roasty notes in the finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth and medium bodied. Overall, this is a solid milk stout that is worth a try for anyone who enjoys the style.
