Lots of coffee to start with a roasted bean flavor. Light vanilla, lactose-sweetness and marshmallow at mid palate. This ends with a strong bit of cacao nib. Hard to believe all this comes in a 7.5% package.

22oz bottle $7.99. Typical stout appearance, not much head. Aroma of chocolate and mild coffee. Flavor is coffee and a lot of sweetness, not my bag really.

Tan head. Black in color.

A nice chocolate and cocoa flavor up front. Nice coffee flavor with the right amount of roast. Vanilla ends in the finish.

Medium bodied. Cola like feel to it.

Nice milk stout with a lot of good flavors. Easy to drink.

Packaged on 11/12/2015. Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque dark brown/black color with a small tan head that forms a ring on the top of the glass.

S: Coffee, carob, roasted malt and hint of vanilla.

T: Coffee dominates the flavor with malted milk balls, roasted malt and vanilla joining the flavor parade.

F: Silky mouthfeel with a pleasant, long lasting coffee and milk sugar aftertaste.

A very tasty milk stout from a rising Chicago brewer.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and moderate cola brown highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy dark tan head that reduces to a medium to large sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of freshly brewed coffee, cacao nibs, and roasted malts with lighter aromas of dark malts and vanilla.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of roasted malts with light flavors of dark malts and just a hint of lactose sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of freshly brewed, freshly roasted coffee and light to moderate flavors of vanilla and cacao nibs. Moderate amounts of lingering roasty bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: A really nice combination of coffee and chocolate but I wish the lactose sweetness was a little more present. Enjoyable and a nice sipping beer.

A: The beer is close to being jet black in color—slight traces of brownish amber are visible near the edges of the glass when held up to a bright light. It poured with a short dense tan head that quickly died down, but left some wisps on the surface and a collar around he edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of cocoa nibs are present in the nose. Some coffee becomes noticeable as the beer warms up, followed by vanilla.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts along with notes of cocoa nibs vanilla and hints of coffee.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No creaminess is perceptible.
O: This stout has a nice mixture of flavors but I didn't get any lactose. You really need to let this beer warm up to let the aromas and flavors to develop.

This is a really nicely put together milk stout, which has a very prevalent vanilla latte feel to it. Pours a pleasing dark black with a hint of warm brown. The balance is great here - with a lower ABV than an imperial stout this really gives you an easy drinker without losing anything in body, feel or flavor. Hersheys chocolate on the finish with some coffee bitterness and almost a dry nature, which is added to by the slight carbonation. Seriously good stuff.
