12oz bottle into a Imperial pint glass.

A- Very dark brown, almost black, color. Opaque with ruby brown highlights. The big 2f head, airy and fluffed, is dirty linen-white colored, and holds up to a thick film leaving sticky web lacing.

S- The chocolate that I expected is barely there. Instead I get too much grain. mineral, and artificial porter smokiness. Maybe some milky sweetness.

T- It sure tastes like it was brewed with 5 grains, as advertised. Chocolate, cocoa, and lots of grainy malt.

M-Smooth and drinkable. Not heavy. I can't escape the mineral taste and feel, though.
Milky sweet chocolate finish.

O- I had hope for this one when I saw the 89 score. To me, it doesn't measure up.

Thick, dark tan head. One dimensional aroma of cocoa, but a big, thick chocolate milk flavor and body. Lives up to the name. I'm not normally a fan of nitro stouts, but this may be one where it makes sense.

Way too much chocolate. Hard to drink very much of this one.

Bitter but not fully. Mouthfeel and chocolate of a shake, but no sugar.

Delicious brew, rich chocolate in the nose, taste follows. Rather quick finish leaving the same chocolate flavors. Overall good beer and was what I thought I was buying but I will say the mouth feel kind left me wanting more. I wish it was a little thicker like a chocolate shake, instead I feel as though I got chocolaty skim milk.
