Smells of sweet lactose and chocolate, sweet dark malts, not a lot of roast.

Taste is wonderful, strong chocolate but not overpowering, sweet but not cloying, the flavors are very well balanced and integrated. Would be an exaggeration to say this actually tastes like chocolate milk, but there is some similarity.

The mouthfeel is amazing, extremely smooth and creamy. This is one of the most drinkable stouts I've ever had, I could easily session this and I usually have trouble drinking stouts quickly.

Fantastic beer, one of my favorite non-imperial stouts. I drink this multiple times a week during the winter when it's on shelves.

Bottle from Total Wine Tampa FL for 2.50$

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size fizzy beige head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for only 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. There are also some metallic notes and something herbal. It ends with a watery-chocolatey aftertaste.

Overall - It has a great smell, but the taste and the mouthfeel fall short unfortunately. There are some odd flavours and there isn't enough chocolate.

I really enjoy what Terrapin does, and I really like milk stouts. But this was not the best milk stout I've had. Don't get me wrong, this is a very good beer, but I was expecting the best because I know Terrapin.

It's really chocolatey. Almost more chocolate stout than chocolate milk stout. It's really dark, which I like. It doesn't sit too heavy, which is a good thing. I could drink another one (or more). It has a decent head, almost sticks around throughout.

The thing I liked the most about this was the creaminess. Not super creamy, but just enough to notice and too enjoy.

Pours a beautiful black color, no ruby hints in this brew. Tan head is thick, creamy and really nice to admire.From Yoo-hoo as a kid to Moo-Hoo, ..I like it Bottle from 2011.
Smell is upfront a touch of alcoholic heat, spiced dark dried fruit, coffee, a few swirls later cocoa comes out in a big way.Cream, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, bitter oatmeal. I detect black cherries and plum in there as well.
Taste exceeds aroma.Much more chocolate.Upfront is milk chocolate, Hershey, cream, coffee,followed by a nice bitterness-oats, touch of pepper and then the dark fruit comes into play.Dark malts provide a background for this mix of chocolate, coffee, fruit and spice.
Really nice, Wake and Bake is of course in a league of its own,
I'd really like to try a nitro version of this next to Left Hand Milk Nitro.

An extra in a trade

A-Black in the glass, one finger head that doesn't last long. Clear brown around the edges and when pouring.

S-Roasted malt, some coffee, tad bit of chocolate.

T-Roasty, good deal of dark chocolate, some coffee, sweet. No bitterness.

M-Lighter, nice carbonation and creamy.

O-A nice milk stout, would have liked to have seen some vanilla sneek in the flavors as well.
