Can't say enough about this collaborative beer from stone (CA) and tröegs (PA). Poured in a 10 oz flute.
Dark roasted espressso chocolate color with a chocolate mousse head. (It looked like a choco-volcano being poured)
smelled like chocolate biscuits and tangy cherry fruit. Hint of Roasty malts too.
Since I had a small glass I waited a few minutes for it to warm up and let the flavors mature. Bittersweet chocolate dominates the palate from the start but the warm vanilla and tart cherrys follow.
Mouthfeel is amazing, so rich and creamy with good carbonation. Hardly a trace of alcohol .
If it seemed like I used the word chocolate a lot in this review its because theres no other way to emphasize the robust cocoa flavor packed into this behemoth. Overall, I have to recommend this beer to anyone who is fortunate enough have access to it. For me its the ultimate in milk stouts.
FYI if you do have access to this, it is on my wants list.
