Served in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a nearly pitch black with a thin brown head. The head faded relatively fast giving a moderate level of lacing.
Smell – Pleasant roasty and chocolate notes are nice and heavy. The roast of is darker-bitter chocolate malts with only the faintest bit of sweetness hidden within.
Taste –The taste is as the nose would suggest. Roasted chocolate flavors are heavy up front and throughout the taste. Along with the darker chocolate in the beginning, that are some notes of espresso mixed in. Toward the middle, the bit of vanilla sweetness that was detected in the nose comes into fruition, but is soon largely lost again to a more bitter cocoa flavor at the very end.
Mouthfeel – The body is on the creamier side with a lower level of carbonation. It’s creamy body makes it sooth the tongue. This soothing is only enhanced by the very lightness of the carbonation, which gives the beer a chance to “cling”. Together the two characteristics create quite a nice mouthfeel
Overall – This was a nice roasty-more bitter stout. It has nice chocolate flavors and a very nice mouthfeel. Not to shabby.

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.
