Live review. Poured from the 550 mL bottle that my brother in law Bruce bought at Save On Tobacco & Beverage in Mentor, Ohio about a month ago. He then gave it to me after a party that he hosted. Thanks Bruce! Price tag on the bottle cap announces "3.99." Stamp on neck of bottle indicates "SI27M1" although I do not observe a "best by" date anywhere on the bottle.
A Great medium brown two inch head over a ver dark body that glows a deep mahogany in front of direct light. Nice look. 4.0
S Gentle stout with nice milk chocolate sweetness. I don't know about anyone else, but this is the best "chocolate stout" smell that I have encountered. 4.5
T Great smell carries right over into the taste. Dark roast malt is classically prepared (I would not expect anything else from Samuel Smith/Tadcaster) and the chocolate is the perfect companion that it was meant to be in all of the chocolate stouts that I have had before this one. THIS is how it is supposed to be done. Bravo! 5.0
M Smooth as silk feel that slips over my tongue and down my throat with ease. That was not always experienced with other chocolate stouts. There is a slight "heat" of alcohol on the back of my tongue and a hint of bitterness but the chocolately smoothness wins over. 4.5
D/O Drinkability is incredibly good. Overall this is a world class Chocolate Stout. In keeping with my traditions, I have not read any other review. It will interest me to see what the BA community thinks. 4.5

A: Dark brown with small head when poured in a Pint glass.
S: The weakest part for me. I'm getting licorice and vanilla.
T: Milk chocolate with hints of cream.
M: Low carbonation, smooth, creamy.
O: Good chocolate beer. That improves as you drink. Most chocolate stouts are heavier...so, like another reviewers stated, I would call it a light stout.
