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.

on tap at the brewery, i was really impressed with this one. a deep dark stout, not overly sweet from the addition of milk sugar, and not overly chocolaty, but the contributions of both make this beer unique. i like that its not overdone there, lets me drink a stout first rather than a flavored beer like their vanilla porter is, the accents are subtle, and the beer is rich without being too sweet. dense matte black brown in color with just an inch of tan head in the stubby tulip. the nose is dark roasted malt with a hint of cocoa and coffee there, but definitely grain first, the flavor is similar, but instead of a dried powder cocoa on the chocolate side, its more of a melty dark chocolate, still bitter, but much more silky and decadent. the body here is only medium and the alcohol doesnt show through at all. i really like this one in a holiday context, think its far better than some of the other breck beers, and would rank it up there with the best chocolate beers around right now. sturdy without being filling, very well put together here.
