A- Black, opaque.
S- Chocolate, toffee, raisins.
T- Strong bitter espresso taste followed by slight raisin fruit character. The finish is bitter and alcoholic.
M- Creamy like a milk stout.
O- An awesome brew. I'd drink it, but not for 10$ a pop. I'd go Lagoo Capp Stout. Awesome brew though.

Look: Fat, dark tan head with frosty top that reminds me of Wendy's milkshake. The opaque, deep brown body promises something rich.

Smell: the milkshake theme continues. No doubt about t, this beer's main perfume is that of a milky chocolate shake, with plenty of powdery, malty sweetness. Secondary scents consist of lightly roasted malt, a dash of bourbon, and a petite handful of dates. The combo makes for a simple, yet yummy bouquet

Taste: It starts out as sweet milk chocolate, then roasts its way into delicious mocha as bitterness enters into the finish. There exists a bit of sweetened dark fruit, chocolate covered cherries in particular. Some earthy and spicy hop flavors and The tiniest pinch of white pepper white pepper give the blend a some hoppy liveliness. The bitterness doesn't go above moderate, however. This is a beer that could convert non beer drinkers with a sweet tooth. any girly girl would like this beer

Mouthfeel: Medium-light carbonation and medium-light body feel a bit too sessionable for the style. A satiny texture brings back a bit of luxury.

Overakk: A pretty typical chocolate stout for the most part. And yet, the rich mocha and spicy hop notes make it a little bit more of a standout.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Nearly opaque black brew with a rich, creamed coffee colored head. Aroma is chocolate milk, coffee, malt candy, raisins, vanilla, toffee, and faint whiff of wood char, smoke, and rum-like booze. Rich and sweet. Like a milk stout on steroids, creamy and smooth, the sweet elements on the nose translating very well on the palate. Each sip features a tripartite chocolate milk/coffee/toffee beginning, dried fruit in the middle, and an earthy, pungent, boozy coda. Cacao powder and mellow ash in the rather dry finish. Alcohol does not burn although one certainly knows its there in spades. Almost a curry-like spice at times (!). The wicked cool label doesn't hurt either. A smokiness does develop over time as the sweetness subsides a little. I might consider sharing this with a buddy next time ... Body on the thick side which amplifies the sweetness, gentle carbonation. A beer for the bold intrepid stout fan, to be sure. I continue to celebrate the arrival of Clown Shoes in this province and this is a more than fitting toast. I could stash a few crates of this and Crunkle Sam and do just fine on an island for a week or two.
