4.05/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass
A - pours an intensely deep brown that forms to black in the glass. A creamy head two fingers deep and light brown in color builds and reduces to an elegant coating lasting for the duration of the glass. A moderate amount of lacing.
S - intense sweet milk chocolate and cocoa. Slight nose of molasses. Condensed milk.
T - much of the same from the nose. Intensely rich with milk chocolate and cocoa. Nesley's Quick. Sweet. Caramel sweetness on the late palate. Some malt throughout. Very litter to no bitterness. No noticeable hop presence in either the flavor or bitterness. Chocolate malt shake.
M - slightly creamy, medium bodied.
D - very easy to drink one down. One being the key word.
Overall - I really enjoyed this libation with some tortilla soup tonight. Extremely sessionable for at least one bottle. More of a desert type beer like a Young's. This would be a fun beer to make some "black and tans" with using some framboise. I think I'll pick up a few more bottles to experiment mixing with vs drinking it on it's own.

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.
