A jet-black ale with a roasted-malt character that's offset by residual sweetness and full body - think of sweetened black coffee. De-bittered black and chocolate malts yield a pronounced - but not harsh - roast grain quality, while lactose (an unfermentable milk-based sugar) yields a rich sweetness and creamy mouthfeel. Very nice as an after-dinner drink instead of coffee, or with chocolate desserts.

Good stout, poor head retention Review by Brendan
Rating
I relize that the before mentioned poor head retention was probably my fault, it poors a lovely tan thick head but deminnishes like a Dr. Pepper, with the same fiz. Never had this happen before, so I feel like it was probably some error on my part, probably a rinse error. It has not disrupted the drinking of this beer at all, I enjoy somehting different thrown into my drinking sessions with pals, this fits the bill (Posted on 1/25/11)
Great taste!!! Review by Stan

Great taste... Very easy recipe.
BUT.... As a novice brewer I found out this the hard way.
If you have any issues with lactose use great caution with this brew. Your posterior will punish you for any over indulgence. (Posted on 7/1/10)
Great brew! Review by HoZr

I made this as my second brew and everyone that tried it was blown away! I even made a rather large error in the primary and it STILL ended up being my whole crews favorite. I used a starter and pitched before the temperature was optimal. As such I got some esters that really ended up adding a good kick to the final product. I used Munton's KreamyX Priming Agent at bottling and the final product had some great hints of chocolate and bananas. All in all I will be brewing this again. (Posted on 5/4/10)
