A: Very dark brown, though appears black in the glass. Forms a minimal dark tan head that quickly reduces to nothing but a ring around the edge of the glass. No lacing.
S: Very nice. Chocolate forward. Some deeply roasted malts, brown bread, and a touch of molasses. But really, the chocolate is the dominant smell.
T: Taste is likewise dominated by the chocolate flavor. It's certainly a milk-chocolate type flavor, not as strong, complex, or "dark" as the good stuff. But considering this is a milk-stout, I guess the milk chocolate reference is to be expected. Mild to moderate sweetness. Some weak coffee notes and a little earthy, woody on the finish. Finish is quick.
M: Medium bodied, but would have appreciated a bit more "chew" on this. Mild to moderate sweetness. Low bitterness, though there does seem to be a hint of tannic astringency, possibly from the cocoa nibs. Medium carbonation.
O: Glad they finally put this one in bottles as I've been wanting to try this beer for the last two years, but was unwilling to commit to an entire growler. A nice beer.

Had this on-tap at Churchkey during the Craft Beer Conference 2013.
A: Poured out pretty much black as night, with somewhat of a thick consistency, yet still fairly light looking overall. Slight head, but nothing too foamy.
S: Definitely hints of cocoa and some toasted grains. That's about it.
T: Ha! This brew resembles Coca-Cola more than any I've ever tasted. My wife and I both sample this at the same time and said that exact same thing! Yep, Coke is it (80s pun intended) along with some subtle hints of cocoa.
M: Grainy, almost the same texture I get when I sample many Black IPA. Still, that was a nice, memorable characteristic, along with the smooth cocoa finish which was fun.
O: I see a collaboration with the a carbonated beverage company in Half Acre's future. At the very least, I'd love for them to brew a root beer sometime.

On nitro-tap in the tasting room.
Nice cascading carbonation from the nitro pour. The only downside was waiting a few minutes for it to set.
The smell is faint hints of milk chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt.
The chocolate has a light bakers chocolate bitterness to it. There's a mild sweetness from the lactose. The roast is almost a woody smoke, but faint.
The mouthfeel on nitro knocks it out of the park. I imagine this is smooth from the bottle and nitro compounds that. It's amazingly smooth, soft, and velvety.
I'm looking forward to trying this out of the bottle.
Tried out of the bottle. It's still a fantastic and extremely drinkable milk stout but the mouthfeel is a bit less smooth, for obvious reasons. It has the same flavors but the sweetness tastes a little more like artificial sweetener than I remembered it being on nitro. Out of a bottle I give this 4s across the board.
