4.15/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a dark chocolate with almost no head. Head is a thin tan colored line which disappears quickly. Very little lacing.

Smells of milk chocolate, sweet cream, vanilla, and cocoa powder. This is basically chocolate quik.

Tastes identical to the aroma. Pure chocolate milk. Need to drop the stout from the name and just call this Moo-hoo Chocolate Milk.

Thin but rather creamy mouth feel. Moderate carbonation. Sweetness lingers.

This is a rather rich milk stout with big chocolate flavor and aroma. Would pair great with a sweet dessert.

One of my favorite stouts. Bold chocolate flavor, without being too sweet. Wonderful aroma. Not as heavy as a lot of stouts, which is good. Releases every year around November. It's a tradition in my household to seek it out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Dark hersey chocolate pour in a chalice yielded a dark walnut colored head of 1/2inch of short retention. No lacing, no visible carbonation.

S: Deep roasted chocolate malts are rich, sweet mixed with a soft coffee roast and a bit of dry vanilla bean and creamer. Nice level of awareness.

T: Big bold rich chocolately character, really sweet, milky rich, marsh-mellow, cocoa with a flash of fresh cold coffee. Finishes smooth, less bitter, sweet with vanilla creamer and a lengthy sweet milk chocolate tease on the tongue.

M: Body is light to medium, creamy, very smooth texture, milky, with no carbonation detection.

O: Overall a very sweet milk stout, limits mulitples, best as a rich dessert treat. Like 3 pounds of milk chocolate condensed into a 12oz serving. Its good for what it is, but its ultimate sweetness may deter the causual fan.

My favorite stout EVER that I got through an IP trade. Pours like motor oil. Doesn't retain much head as it dissipates after an aggressive pour. Defiantly get very pleasant chocolate notes. 6.5% ABV. Not so sweet as to keep you from having another.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Dark brown-black, opaque with just a hint of light around the edges, tan head, forms up like cola and fades quickly but not completely. Some lacing.

S - Milk chocolate, primarily in the form of cocoa powder. A bit of alcohol burn underlying the chocolate.

T - Big chocolate, with hints of roasted malts giving the beer a bit more depth. A subtle bitter close. Acidic overtones throughout from the carbonation, but with how sweet the beer is, that is not a problem.

M - The one knock on an otherwise stellar beer. The beer is highly carbonated, and pours like cola, making the fizzy noise I associate with pouring one into a glass. A bit thin.

O - The extensive carbonation helps lift the cloying sweetness you'd expect from a chocolate milk, so it helps with the overall experience. The result is an interesting, tasty beer.

Pours out black with brown highlights and a thin frothed milk tan head. Smells of dark chocolate milk with toasty malts. Tastes of chocolate and vanilla. Roasty grain and lightly sweet plum. Body is medium with creamy, smooth carbonation. One of the best chocolate stouts around.

The name says it all. It's Yoo-Hoo with some alcohol added. The aroma was so incredibly TOOTSIE ROLL it almost threw me off the entire tasting. It did have a slight acidic hit that helped cut that sweetness, though. If creamy and chocolaty is what you're after then you're set with this one

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Short light-tan head under a black bodied beer. Not much lacing and the head dies quickly.

Aroma: Faint burnt roasted smell with a rubbing alcohol scent. Not the best aroma...

Taste: It has a light roasted grain flavor that is a bit watered down.

Mouthfeel: It has a nice smooth mouthfeel. There's a slick feeling on the palate.

Overall: I don't get a whole lot of chocolate from this beer and it is a bit watered down in flavor, but it has enough roasted grain flavor and it is smooth enough to make it a nice drinking experience.

Great Tasting Milk Stout! Dark, well black as tar but smooth and creamy. I have turned on several people to stouts when I get then to try one of these delicious beers.

Poured into a snifter. Black with a bit of light around the edges. 2 fingers of head that didn't last too long.

Smells great. Obvious chocolate scent.

Tastes pretty good. A lot of chocolate. Bits of toffee and coffee, but mostly just, without being overly sweet.

Mouth feel could use some work. For a milk stout, it didn't feel too thick and milky. A bit more lactose would turn this beer from good to great.

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

A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is black with a thin wisp of a greyish-colored head.

S: Chocolate and cocoa powder and a wee bit of roast.

T: It has that lactose milk stout flavor to it, along with a modest amount of chocolate (I was expecting more for some reason) and cocoa powder. Slightly roasty. Modest dark chocolate bitterness. No real hop presence.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is good.

O: Good stuff. Chocolatey but without becoming too one-dimensional. An easy drinker, though to be honest, I probably wouldn't want more than one at a sitting.
