4/5 rDev +1.3%
Draft at Devil's Den in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.
Complex malt aroma with a nice balance of sweet and roasted notes. Hints of sweet and dark chocolate, oatmeal, coffee bean and toffee along with lactic sugar/cream. Smells like a chocolate milk shake.
Slightly chewy medium body with a nice balance of sweet and roasted chocolate malt along with earthy, bitter hops and lactic sugar. Really chocolate-y with hints of caramel, toffee and nut. Some roasted dark malt notes and hops contribute bitterness. Hits of oatmeal, coffee and toast but the silky chocolate and lactic sugar notes dominate making this beer silky smooth and easy to drink.

Poured a deep black with a tan head that dissipated fast. In its defense I was outside in the rain enjoying this during Philly Beer Week. so I can forgive the head.
The aroma offers a ton of milk chocolate. The flavor is the same, deep milk chocolate notes with a bit of carbonation and a very soft mouthfeel. Very drinkable, an easy drinker, but also a great desert beer. Wonderful finish and a great intro to a new brewery that I have never previously tried.
This was definitely one of the top two beers I tried at that evenings event. I am now organizing a trip to Chicago so I can visit the brewery and indulge in some more.

Served from a growler filled at the brewery.
Poured a dark, non-translucent brown that appeared to be totally filtered. Produced a thin light mocha head that faded to a mere ring around the glass. Smells are of roast, sweetened coffee, dark chocolate and caramel. Tastes mirror that with a definite milk/cream taste. A sweetened coffee taste is highly present. After I had a piece of chocolate, the tastes seemed more woodsy and roasty. The mouthfeel is decent but it seems too crisp for me. Needs a bit more body, perhaps. It leaves a mere milky aftertaste. Overall, a solid brew. Another good offering from Half Acre.

Poured from a growler into a mug
A: Pours opaque black with a touch of dark brown. There is a foamy tan head of two fingers with decent retention. Layered curtains of lacing.
S: The aroma is deep and malty. Chocolate and roasted malts are key. There are some notes of toffee and brown sugar sweetness as well.
T: Bittersweet chocolate is the first flavor I detect, followed closely by a light brewed coffee. Toffee and faint vanilla give the flavor some good depth. Finishes clean with some mild lingering chocolate bitterness.
M: Smooth and creamy. Medium bodied for a stout. Pretty damn enjoyable. Medium-light carbonation.
O: Good chocolate notes with a sweet backbone and creamy mouthfeel. Tasty and drinkable.

Deep black, tan head, disappates fast, looks like a Stout. Nose is subdude, not alot of malt, but lots of milk chocolate. The flavor is the same, deep milk chocolate notes with a bit of carbonation and a very soft mouthfeel. No big Stout backbone, don't need it. Very drinkable, at the brewery they said the ABV was closer to 4%, I believe that is true, hard to tell. This is an easy drinker, but also a great desert beer, have it closer to 60 degrees if you really want to get all the flavor. A sessionable stout, yes please, keep it coming.
