look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cute label. Solid black color with about 3/4" of tan head. The foam laces a little bit.

Dark chocolate and berries and plum in the nose. Soft maltiness with a hearty roast. Yeast smells like this stout has a Belgian flair with that fruitiness. Not picking much, if any, vanilla.

No lactose present, rather mostly berried and chocolaty in flavor. Vanilla appears in the background and grows in the finish. Bitterness is a little bigger than I was expecting, but it keeps the drinkability high and worrying about too much sweetness forgettable. The roast is more showy, too. Good flavors, not overdone.

Full and creamy, but the aggressor is a vibrant carbonation that scuffs across the tongue. Hardly a trace of booze. Well-balanced.

Delicious simple stout. Would totally recommend this to many. It's quiet for the label description, but it's a complete beer for flavor, feel, and aroma.

A-Pours dark brown with a thick creamy head that lingers
S- dark chocolate, marshmallow, some vanilla
T/M- creamy chocolate, cinnamon undertones, slight smokiness, some vanilla, lactose, milky smooth texture
O- I think I expected too much from this. The texture is pretty great but for a beer themed around chocolate, I could have gone for more. The flavors are all good but they're pretty subtle. It's pleasantly easy drinking, great tasting stout that leaves a nice chocolate aftertaste. Well done

A: Pours a rich coffee like back and rich with a nice tan head about 1/2 inch thick,sadly it dissapates rapidly.but clings to side of glass awesomely.

S: Aroma is of dark chocolate and sweet vanilla.

T: Taste is an awesome combo of semi sweet dark chocolate and rich malt base.warm and toasted with a touch of caramel its everything it claims to be on the bottle.Had mine with some smoked gouda and crackers...yummmm.

M: Rich warm and full bodied to medium bodied.Tiny bubbles arise to the top to replenish the foamy head .

O: Overall a great beer with a lot of charachter and worth looking for to try or just sit back and enjoy on a cold night.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark black/brown with a nice 2 inch creamy, foamy head and lots of lacing.

Smell - Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, lactose sugars, brown sugar, molasses. vanilla, fig and rasin. A little smoke and creamy note also.

Taste - Roasty malts, chocolate and cream are noticed at first sip. FLaovr is rather mild and light. Added sugars, cocoa and some creamy notes come out also. Not much hops is noticed, only minor flavors of rasin and plum. A little smokey and coffee flavor comes at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Rather mild, roasted malts, chocolate and molasses coats tounge, and palate. Aftertaste is mildy sweet, chocolate sweet and roasty.

Overall - Well this is rather tame and mild. The flavor is to mellow and forgetable really. Bells cream stout is 10x more flavorful and enjoyble. This is like a light version, how was this released? Its not bad but nothing special and nothing id seek out again.

New Fat Head's!!

Pours out black with about 2 fingers of an off-white head.

The aroma is dominated by bittersweet dark chocolate, some roasty notes, a hint of caramel and a touch of vanilla.

The flavor is also pretty chocolate forward with notes of dark and milk chocolate. There are some nice roasty notes followed by toffee/caramel and some vanilla as well. It's very well balanced between being sweet and bitter so it's easy to drink.

The body is on the lighter side for a Stout and the mouthfeel is decently smooth and creamy.

It's a solid beer, but it's missing a little to be considered great. First, the vanilla should be more prominent, second this would benefit from either an oak-aged version or a nitro version a.k.a. Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro.

Worth checking out and very tasty, but not amazing.

Decently roasty nose. Flavor profile starts off quite promising, but leads to a sweet kind of thing that's really off-putting at first, but becomes less so as time goes on. Smooth feel. Overall, quite easy to drink. A bit sweeter than I would like, but it still works.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours pitch black with just a little light getting through. Nice fluffy kakhi head that sticks around and leaves nice lacing. The aromas are pretty underwhelming. I can't pick up on much chocolate or vanilla. The aromas are pretty underwhelming. Lots of malts and it has grainy/mineral/metallic like aromas. It tastes much better than it smells. The dark chocolate notes come through in the flavors. It gives it a solid bitterness. There's a mild hop kick. There's a touch of black coffee in the mix as well. The vanilla practically goes unnoticed. Ehh. There's some caramel notes that linger giving it a subtle milky sweetness. Mouthfeel is pretty nice. It's medium-bodied, fluffy, creamy, moderate carbonation making it pretty smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

I'm personally not feeling this one too much. Fat Heads brews some stellar beers, so maybe I had unfair expectations. This is average to me and they brew alot of insanely awesome dark beers. I don't think this one is going to grow on me either, but I am going to revisit to double check.
