4.16/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into tulip 16/2/14

A black liquid with a deep cola edge, two fingers of mocha foam sits around for a few sips but leaves zero lace

S Hershey's chocolate syrup hits me strong, chocolate covered cherries, chocolate milk, reminds me of black forest cake in a big way with chocolate, cherries and cream, not sure where the cherry comes from but I can't shake it, smells beautiful

T not far off the nose, just a hint of coffee, fudge, and booze comes through a little, it is what it claims, this is a chocolate monster

M not overly thick for a big beer this dark, enough carbonation to give it some life, very sticky on the lips, a little heat, chocolate syrup and faint coffee linger

O so over the top with the chocolate but I dig it, goes down with no problems and I'll be tasting chocolate tomorrow at this rate

this one lives in chocolate land, not much else but I do love chocolate, the nose is divine and no major complaints elsewhere

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle. Served n a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with almost an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is very chocolately. The brew smells like milk and bittersweet chocolate, malted milk balls, tootsie rolls, chocolate syrup, just chocolate in general. There's also some cherries and roasted malt noticeable too. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma. This beer is full of chocolate, with a good amount of sweet and bittersweet/dark chocolate flavors, and some cherry also in there. Not much of a surprise that a brew that's called a triple chocolate milk stout is a chocolate bomb. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's a bit slick and coating with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew a lot, and I'd like to try it again. It's certainly a beer for people who like chocolate! $11.99 a bottle.

4.4/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours a dark chocolate brown/black with a finger of mocha creamy head.

Smell- Holy chocolate! (dark and semi-sweet), vanilla, lactose, roasted malts, hint of espresso bean.

Taste- Again, holy chocolate! Dark and semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa, roasted chocolate malts, touch of espresso and vanilla. Nice lactose sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Pleasant creaminess.

Overall- A stellar and well crafted milk stout. The flavours blend well together. This is one bold chocolate brew that would have chocolate lovers coming in droves.

4.29/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

750ml bottle, enclosed in a very wordy (well, I guess it is a manifesto of sorts, after all) shiny cardboard box.

This beer pours a solid black, no edges, no highlights, no nuthin', with one measly finger of weakly foamy, and placidly bubbly brown head, which leaves (somewhat surprisingly) a bit of low-lying sea-spray lace around the glass as it quickly wafts off.

It smells quite readily of chocolate milk syrup (Nestle Quik, etc), after it's been liberally squirted into the glass of milk, with some of the sweetest milk chocolate chunks added to the mix, all before a chocolate-wrapped caramel candied malt makes itself known, alongside some of that bullshit sugary chocolate vodka that someone likes enough that they keep making it. The taste is still all about the rendered cocoa bean - melted, yet cool, milk chocolate fudge, vanilla cream, more ice-cream topping syrup (and the ice-cream, for that matter), a subtle raisin and currant black fruitiness, Caramilk, free-radical milk sugars, and a suggestion of coffee borne out by the temperature-dependent alcohol - Kahlua is hardly out of the question by this point - best I keep my wife away from this, then.

The bubbles are pretty much on low-fi standby for this whole heady affair, the body medium-heavy in weight, due in no small part to you-know-what, and smooth, creamy, and silken by the same measure. It finishes sweet, of course, the overbearing chocolate relaxing somewhat, possible in light of the persistently understated alcohol, and under-appreciated caramel malt.

While this surely has more cocoa than the BNL release, it it less rich, weirdly, even with all the milky components. It does seem to lag a bit from its audacious introduction, but that's hardly a reason for deduction. If there's a better (or more brash) credo for chocolate and milk stout out there, I don't think my tastebuds are capable of processing it, not after this. True to style, but amped-up a notch, or rather, a logarithmic tenfold.
