16 oz can

Pours jet opaque black, finely textured light tan head retains as a film.

Smells of cocoa, vanilla and cookie.

Flavor is of chocolate syrup, caramel, brown sugar, pecan, vanilla and cream. Woody finish.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Pretty good tasty chocolate stout with good flavor and a beautiful pour. Drinks easy. Lots of flavor for a lower abv. Worth trying.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 11/8/2018. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass. Looks nitro. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, cream, roasted nuts, and toasted dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of coffee, molasses, dark fruit, smoke, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, cocoa, vanilla, lactose, and mild earthy hops/fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, cream, roasted nuts, and toasted dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of coffee, molasses, dark fruit, smoke, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy hop and roasted bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, cream, roasted nuts, toasted dark/brown bread, coffee, molasses, light dark fruit/smoke, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, cocoa, vanilla, lactose, and mild earthy hops/fruity yeast flavors; with a solid roasted bitter/sweet balance, and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is an excellent milk stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, cocoa, vanilla, lactose, and mild earthy hops/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the minimally bitter/drying finish, not overly roasty. Very rich malt complexity with balanced cocoa, vanilla, and lactose flavors; with just enough earthy hop presence against lingering sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Very impressive for the ABV.

16 ounce can, canned on 11/08/18. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that stuck around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like cocoa, cream, roasted malt, and some earthy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, with milk chocolate, cocoa, cream, roasted malt, earthy hop, dark bread and light coffee flavors. More hoppiness than I expected in this, but I'm not complaining at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. Smooth and easy enough to drink. I thought this was a good milk stout, glad I bought a 4 pack of this one! I'm guessing Singlecut is new to Ohio since I haven't seen any of their brews around until recently. $15.99 a 4-pack.

Poured from an undated 16 oz. can to a diagonal cut tumbler.
Pours dark, slight red in the pour stream, black in the glass. Mild 1/4" tan head the fades quickly.
Close your eyes and you swear you are drinking fat free chocolate milk with a small dash of bourbon.
Despite the thin up front mouthfeel there is a tongue coating the lasts for quite a while.
This is a well done beer for what it is. However, like a lot of stouts, its slightly too sweet for me.

Aroma is roast, with a touch of chocolate. The beer pours an opaque black with a dusting of light tan head. Full, slick mouthfeel, with some notes of chocolate and roast. The vanilla doesn't really stand out, and there's very light carbonation in this beer. The lactose is used with a gentle hand, so it's not overly sweet. Some more carbonation would really help this beer out in my opinion.

Thanks to Brutalfarce for this one. 16oz can poured into 14oz teku. Poured a solid black color, and poured very still. Low carbonation, so just a thin cap of tan head that left very light lacing.

The aroma had nice roast upfront, and some underlying sweetness. Just a hint of cocoa. Pretty much the same on the tongue, with the chocolate being a touch more prominent.

The body was typical, medium-full, and had a semi-sweet finish. Drinkability was good, smooth, even, and easy. Overall, a solidly enjoyable brew. Worth trying if you see it.

Poured from a tall bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Dark, dark pour... nearly black with thick foamy brown head. Modest ring of lacing.

S: Sweet and roasty... cocoa, espresso, and roasted sugars.

T/F: Just like the nose... dry roasted grains up front followed by sweet cocoa, light coffee, and some bittering hops. Surprisingly light bodied... well carbonated.

O: A really solid milk stout. A little light in the body for my taste, but great flavor and super easy drinking.

2/22...pours dark black with fast and highlights of brown foam. Builds and drops to a thin layer. Bitter baking chocolate nose, strong and broad ranging. Bright bitter open, firm, and creamy. Coffee flavors throughout. Like a cold brew coffee. Real good.
