Pours an opaque brown black with a frothy mocha head that lingers. Chocolate and cocoa counter nutty and roasted malt in the aroma. There's a touch of dark fruit tartness, and a hint of tar. Flavor is on the sweet side initially, with chocolate melding with light tart cherry underpinnings, finishing slightly roasty and a touch bitter. Nutty, toasted malt waves throughout, but chocolate sweetness rules the day. The tart character prevents it from being cloying. A little short on the roasty stout character and heavy on chocolate. Guilty pleasure of a beer.

This is my first brew from Breckenridge, and I'm having it from a bottle.

Appearance: Jet black cannot see through it. It had only a 1/2 finger head with an aggressive pour.

Smell: It smells fresh and like a Hershey kiss.

Taste: I'm getting some coffee notes with a strong chocolate taste overall, only slightly bitter.

Mouth feel: It has a nice feel thick and satisfying.

Overall: It is a good beer and a great start for me from Breckenridge. I do believe this is my first milk stout also so cheers.

Good chocolate cream beer. Character is similar to Sweet Baby Jesus beer but unique in it's
own way. $10 for a 4 pack! Wow, that's expensive. I should have been a Wall Street trader.
((sigh))

Great look to this beer. Completely black with no light at all. Finishes with a chocolate taste and hints of coffee overall. Poured a 2 finger head. Surprisingly has a slight spice feel on the mouth but still remains smooth.

3.84/5  rDev -0.5%

Look: Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass, it's a very dark brown, almost black with about one finger of head which fades to nearly nothing in a short time.

Smell: A hint of chocolate and some fruity notes. Some sweet spicy notes.

Taste: I'm not getting much chocolate. It almost has a slightly spicy feel, similar to cinnamon. It has sweet flavors, some fruits, and creme. There is a small hint of chocolate left after each sip.

Feel: Medium bodied, high in carbonation.

Overall: Pretty good beer. Nothing to rave about, but it's good. Not sure I'd go out of my way to find it, but it it's there, I may pick some up.
