Pours black with a mocha head of a quarter inch fading quickly.

Great nose, thick with chocolate, cream, coffee, roasted barley, lactose, milk chocolate, sweet and sensuous.

A solid rock of a beer that I'm going to drink way to quickly. Thick and creamy with big roasted barley through the finish with layers of sweet milk chocolate and lactose. Some light dark fruits including plum and black truffles. Way to easy to drink.

Enjoyed on tap at Winking Lizard 10/23/2015.

Look - Brown. Tan head. I've let it sit for an hour and still has a ring of head.

Smell - Sweet chocolate. Dark chocolate. Soy sauce.

Taste - Chocolate.

Feel - Creamy. Smooth. Full.

Overall - This is a thick milk stout. It is nice to get the higher ABV and feel.

Thanks beace for hooking us up with this growler. Split three ways. Poured from a swing top growler into pint glasses.

A- Pours a dark, chocolate brown color. Produced two fingers width of tan head. Some lacing as the beer was consumed with a bit of head retention.

S- Mellow, sweet chocolate with plenty of malts. Has a definite milky presence. Bit of molasses on the back end. Simple, yet it has a very delectable aroma.

T- Much more depth here than in the aroma. Bitter chocolate upfront that is accompanied with a good amount of lactose. Lends a smooth milky flavor. Midway through to the finish a roasted flavor comes forward. Finishes with some roasted qualities and minor sweetness.

M- Medium bodied and very smooth. Really liked the texture.

D- Extremely drinkable. Lovin' the lactose.

Overall, this should be a regular offering.

On tap

Pours pitch black with a small fish khaki head. Smells of lactose, chocolate, toasted malt. Taste is strong roasted malt, followed by lactose, dark chocolate, charred wood & coffee. Medium thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation, thick and creamy finish. One of the better milk stouts I've had

Big thanks to Deuane for bringing me this growler back from a recent trip to the brewery. Thanks again buddy! Growler poured into a duvel tulip.

A - Pours pitch black with a nice half finger tall dark tan head leaving very light lacing down the glass.

S - Tons of sweet chocolate and dark roasted malts mix well with a bit of lactose sweetness and the faintest hint of booze to create the core of this beer. More and more chocolate comes thru as it begins to come to room temp.

T - Plenty of chocolaty sweetness mixes well with the dark roasted malts, ground coffee, and lactose sweetness. Finish has plenty of sweetness throughout but it gets a bit hot as it warms up. Pretty good stout but nothing too mind blowing. I am looking forward to trying some of the other offerings from Jackie O's.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit thin but no big deal there. Finish has plenty of dark roast and strong chocolaty sweetness.

D - Pretty good. Based on the fact that I drank nearly half the growler myself I must have enjoyed some part of this one. The balance was good but it was just a bit too sweet. Still pretty good tho.
