I think it a great milkshake stout... remember it a milkshake stout, it will be a little thin and not as heavy...oh just my opinion. Hell im lactose intolerant....uh oh

Pours (from a tall boy can) a nice dark black with a brown head that dissipates quickly. Smell is of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is similar, with a slightly thin mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Overall, solid if unspectacular stout. Don't really pick up creamy/milk feel or taste, but the can is about 6mos old.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a 12 ounce mug
Pours a thick dense 2.5 finger dark tan head, nearly jet black in color.
Smell is of roasted coffee and dark chocolate but I'm getting some tinny metallic smell in there as well, which is disappointing.
Taste is of deep chocolate fading quickly to metal and then to coffee, that metallic flavor irks me.
A rather full and creamy mouthfeel for a milder stout.
Overall impressive flavor for the abv and simplicity of ingredients but somewhat let down by the metal smell and flavor from the can.

Found this guy at Frankie V's in Grand Rapids, MI. Tasty, easy to drink stout. A little citrusy for my preference but quite good.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, smooth, with a foamy, light, fluffy, off-white head. Nose of rich chocolate, subtle bitter coffee, and creamy highlights. Flavors are rich and creamy chocolate forward, with subtle cream highlights, and subtle roasted coffee notes. Smooth, creamy body, with a subtle coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Smooth, velvety, creamy finish. Good beer.

Rochester Mills Milkshake Stout.


Don't know a thing about this one or thia brewery but I needed to round out my mix a six so this is what I chose. A ' milkshake ' stout sounds pretty good to me, so let's see what we get.

Look - From the 16oz can into a pint glass. Pours a deep, nearly impenetrable black with a huge bubbly mocha colored head that nearly fills the entirety of the glass. Is this thing nitro?. Carbonation is unreadable due to the thick coloration. The head has thus far retained exceptionally and will likely stick around throughout the drink. Surprisingly no lacing or stick remains whatsoever.

Smell - The cocoa nibs are the largest player in the nose, with a huge character of roasty meatyneas. Lactate cream and a smidge of coffee are prevelant as well as expected. Not much else going on.

Taste - Chocolate cocoa nibs and lactose are immediately present on the taste buds the moment the beer hits. Burnt meat char rounds out the rest of the flavor with a touch of selrzer water upon the swallow. Not a very complex profile going on here.

Feel - Seeing as the head retained very well even to now the mouthfeel is extremely creamy, but very, very watery and thin. The carbonation appears to vary here and there. Swallows very easily and doesn't hit the stomach heavy. Bit of a tin flavor as it sits.

Overall - This is the kind of beer you give to somebody new to craft beer. Not really a whole lot going on here, and it smells better than it tastes. Quaffable nontheless, but at $8 a four pack I'd pass in the future given the low ABV of only 5%. Not much bang for your buck. Despite that, I would have another beer from this brewery if I found it in the singles section. Perfectly fine beer.

Went to an Oktoberfest party in South Central PA yesterday and a person drove from Michigan and brought a few cans of these along. A very decent and flavorful light stout. Recommend.

A - Very dark beer for 5% with only a 1/2 inch of head that clears rather quickly.
S - Quite good not screaming Milk shake but sweet cocoa nibs
T - Much better than it smells semi sweet cocoa nibs and coffee goodness.
M - Smooth taste like a beer not like water with good flavors.

Overall for a simple stout flavored with cocoa nibs its quite good. Well worth the $2.50 pounder price.
