Notes: WE’VE GOT A FEVER – And there is only one cure: a lusciously creamy, slightly sweet Stout that sits atop a roast malt base and huge cocoa infusion that will rock all night long.

Wow what a great milk stout! Sweet but not overly so with good chocolate, cocoa nibs, and slight coffee. Good to sip but easy going enough to chug! Would get it again even at 4 bucks a pounder!

Just about a close to black as brown can get, the contents of a pint can are now situated inside a clear glass liter mug. Well carbonated, but little head was witnessed. The aroma is obviously roasted malt and chocolate. It's almost milk chocolate sweet, but not quite milk chocolate smooth. There's none of that roasted malt bite that some stouts include. By virtue of its self-described category, it isn't supposed to have any. The mouthfeel is smooth enough and the sweetness isn't unbearable. Maybe a little more chocolate flavor would help. This isn't bad, but it's not a treat.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Look: Pours a rich, almost pitch black, chocolate brown with a one finger khaki head of foam. Minimal lacing.

Aroma: Hershey syrup, sweet chocolate chips, wafer cookies, marshmellows, floral vanilla.

Taste: Chocolate praline cookies, nougat, Jamaican coffee, Italian chocolate ice. Sweet but not cloying. Ends on flavors of chocolate chips and hazelnut.

Feel: A little thin for the style. Low carb, mid/light body - the milk sugar gives it a little extra weight on the palate. Velvety. Low alcohol profile.

Overall: Great flavor; very light body for a milk stout and easily drinkable. Recommended.

The directions on the state to decant this unfiltered beer carefully. Even so, it still generated a modest head over a very dark body. Rather weak aroma of coffee & chocolate. Slightly sweet, no bitterness. The flavor is a little more substantial & complex than the aroma: coffee, milk chocolate, lactose & roasted malts. Creamy smooth feel, very gentle on the tongue, could use a little more carbonation and/or alcohol. Overall: a very good milk stout.

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is solid black head presents 1 finger thick and is light tan, some lacing. , thin solid head remains.

Smell is light lactose, then some chocolate and light roast, hint of vanilla.

Taste is blend of chocolate, lactose, light vanilla, some roast interlopes; hops are subdued, earthy, light grass.

Mouthfeel is low carbonation, moderate sweetness, light drying finish.

Overall a solid milk stout, stronger lactose note, pleasant counter of roast and chocolate.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells of creamy chocolate. Tastes of chocolate with nice cream, and just a tad of coffee. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

-Brewed with Cacao, vanilla, and milk sugar.

A: Dark almond-chocolate pour is rich and milky on the pour. Dark chestnut toned head is thin and foamy, as well short lived. Nice dark presence in the vessel.

S: Milky chocolate and almond on the nose. Sugary wort and marshmallow, light coco powder, vanilla, all of a good strength. The chocolate nature really starts to come through with some warming as well soft creamer coffee that makes its way through.

T: The flavor was a bit thin and flat on my first impression. Dull chocolate, lightly dry and vanilla powder. Coco powder, middle of the road development, has some tints of roasty coffee and marshmallow that offers some final and saving grace.

M: The mouthful was very smooth, medium built, with a milky texture and feel. Very soft carbonation.

O: The flavor I found to be a bit lackluster, particularly the chocolate aspect. A bit mundane and reserved, and overall didn't hold my attention for long, after a few sips.Just wasn't feeling this for whatever reason. Nice desing on the can, the flavor just wasn't sweet or rich compared to other more top notch examples. An 84 overall from me.

Had to get this one, if only to send a pic to my best buddy of the same name.

Pours dark with a finger of brown head that fades to a thick ring, light lacing. Aromas are heavily roasted malt and sweet vanilla. Excellent tasting stout with mellow notes of cocoa, vanilla, and lactose sweet - none of which are overdone. Super smooth light-medium mouthfeel, and semi-bitter roasty finish. Well done!

Canned 8/28/19; drank 12/29/19 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big tan head; almost no lace.

Cream, stale hops, mild milk chocolate & faint wheat notes in the nose.

Creamy medium thick mouthfeel.

Cream, stale hops, mild milk chocolate & faint fresh earth flavors.

This was a tired amalgam that I won't track down again.

Can from The Market in Bantam.

Black with dark brown highlights, this beer is capped with a brown head that recedes leaving little lacing. The nose is a soft blend of dark chocolate, roast, mellow fruity coffee and a modest creamy, milky and a mild lactose sweetness. The palate opens with a blend of chocolate roast, malted milk, mild caramelized milk. The mid palate has milk chocolate, a little bit of roast, a raisin like chocolate syrup character as well. Medium bodied, this beer finishes mildly sweet with chocolate syrup, malted milk and some honey. Creamy and soft on the palate. Despite being a little sweeter and a little thinner than ideal, this is a better balanced example of the style than the Tree House beer I had last night.

pours black with no head. The no froth was a sign of weakness and sure enough the taste follows
the weak smell and look. The taste is thin and watery. Yes, you get the chocolate and a just a little milk sweetness but overall this is too thin and watery to be a great stout. A sugary aftertaste with no complexity. No alcohol burn but its low ABV for a stout. I did not finish this one, won't repeat.

On tap at Beer Culture, NYC.

Pours a black color with a hint of mahogany. A big creamy tan head is well retaining.

The aroma exudes creamy and milky sweetness. Notes of bright biscuity malts, dark fruit, milk chocolate and light coffee roast.

Creamy, smooth, full bodied, mouth coating and with a low carbonation. Sweet flavors, yet not cloying, with notes of chocolate, brown sugar, milk, lactose, and sweetened coffee with a gentle balancing touch of roasty bitterness. The finish is long and mildly roasty.

I really enjoyed this beer as it is a style I don’t normally favor. I especially like that it was not overly sweet and highly drinkable.
