3.54/5 rDev +1.4%
A - A very full bodied looking with a deep dark black and a 1/2 inch of mocha head that pulls back to just a mild lace ring. No sticky lacing.
S - Some milk sugars and chocolate highlighting with some roasted malts but it seems to have a hoppy edge even for only 20 ibu's
T - Not a bad milk stout maybe a touch more metallic and less "sweet" than they described. Sweet chocolate malts, then acidic roasted malts, and a sugary malt finish is what you get. Has some harsh hard water undertones I can't ignore.
M - Medium bodied, with only mild creaminess.
Overall only having one of their brews I find this hard to believe it's as sweet as they say. Also it could use more body and maybe a touch creamier rather than hard water edge. These guys should re-make their recipe.

A: Hersey chocolate pour, with a bronze-twany topping that displayed a length retention. Really love the head coloring here as well a nice lenghty topping display. Milky frothy lacing.
S: Dark chocolate, semi-sweet, fresh coffee beans with a hint of sweet lactose and creamer and decent level of awareness.
T: Flavor of sweet chocoalte and lactose. Caramel, a bit dry in the middle but sweet with some dry cocoa rounding things out.
M: Creamy near full body with a good tingle of carbonation and a lengthy fade of dry alcohol and chocolate.
O: Overall decent, dry and sweet, comes in middle of the road per style for me, but it probably wont make you regret a single purchase. Easy drinking, dessert beer.
