2012 version in a 12 oz. bottle that pours a very dark brown body, nearly black. Decent two-finger light tan head that doesn't hang around too long and leaves very little lacing.

Not very complex in the aroma: mostly chocolate with a touch of malt and figs in the background.

The flavor is very similar to the aroma. Mostly chocolate nibs and a small amount of malt in the background. The is an occasional sour note like a ripe raisin, but overall it is as expected - chocolately.

A bit light in texture for a "stout" but it is, again, as expected for a milk stout. Overall, a decent interpretation and fairly enjoyable.

Bottled poured into a CCB Snifter. Thanks to Smokinoak for this one!

A: Opaque black with a nice, dark, tan-colored 1-finger fluffy head. The head disappears pretty quickly and doesn't leave much lacing on the glass.

S: Definite chocolate smells. Malty, with some wofts of black licorice and even some dark sweetness that almost smells like fruity figs.

T: Chocolate through and through dominates. A little malty.

M: A little watery for my liking. Not as thick as I would have loved. Good level of carbonation, but not real creamy like I would anticipate.

O: Not bad, but I had some pretty high hopes. If I would have gone in with zero expectation I wouldn't have been disappointed, so I'm trying to think of it that way. Just wish it would've been a little creamier. Overall ok.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a black color with a half finger head and some lacing.

S: Chocolate, sweet malts, and some licorice.

T: Milk chocolate and roasted malts. Slightly watered down, but tasty.

M: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.

O: A little lighter than I prefer, but appropriate for a milk stout. Quite enjoyable.

12oz bottle into a pint glass
2012 Vintage

A: Pours an opaque black with less than 1 fingers width of mocha colored head. Dissipates down pretty quickly. Leaves only the faintest hints of spotty lacing.

S: Chocolate, milk/lactose, peanut butter fudge. Quite sweet. Not terribly complex but smells really nice.

T: Lots of chocolate. Milk chocolate upfront with bakers chocolate on the finish. Hints of roasted malt. The lactose characters arent overly prominent, which is nice, as sometimes I find that unappealing in a Sweet Stout. Tasty.

M/D: Smooth, appropriate low carbonation, a touch thin, but drinkability is very good.

O: Overall, this is a well done brew. Im not a huge fan of the style, but this is one of the better ones I have had. Is a touch thin, and not terribly complex, but nice aroma and flavor, with good drinkability. I would drink this again, and am looking forward to making a Wake N Moo.
