Thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing this brew. Served in a Russian River tulip glass.

A - Pours with a finger of tan foam that settles to a thin ring and some patchy film, but minimal lace. Dark brown body that is lighter at the fringes.

S - Smell is very strange. Tar, alcohol, and dark chocolate, and very little lactose character at all.

T - Taste is more in line with my expectations. Straight-up lactose sugar, milk chocolate, and some faint roast and coffee as well. Very sweet, but on point for the style.

M - Smooth, Nestle Quik texture. Lower carbonation that is style-appropriate. Pretty enjoyable.

D - Too sweet to drink a lot of this one. Glad they put this one in 12oz bottles as it'd be hard to kill a bomber with anything less than a few friends without getting diabetes. Weird smell is also unpleasant, but if you hold your nose this is a pretty solid brew.

With chocolate, coffee, and heavy cream at the forefront, this beer leads a flavorful charge but with medium-full flavors and textures for an even and smooth drinkability.

The beer pours a dark brown hue with perhaps a modest haze that's difficult to assess because of the darkness. Formitalbe head formation leads to sturdy retention and clinging lace- all reinforcing the beer's character and quality.

Aromas of cocoa, molasass, walnuts, and cream all mix in a somewhat grainy scent. With no esters, phenolics, or off aromas, the beer is simple and pure with the classic Milk Stout profile.

Flavors of caramel/molasass start the sweeter start with a mix of heavy cream, coffee, cocoa, and nuttiness to follow. Perhaps with a the balance of the beer tilting toward the chocolaty portions, the milk chocolate flavors take a slight lead in the taste. Low on hops, the beer's hop profile offers balance and maybe a mild earthy taste without interference with the silky, chocolate taste.

Creamy and full up front, the beer releases its carbonation slowly and evently toward a cocoa powder and grainy-sweet finish that never really dries, but provides a lingering chocolate and nutty linger.

A very nice Milk Stout that pushes the chocolate malts without over-doing it. With a dash of experiment and a dose of Terrapin identity, the beer holds firm to the parameters of Milk Stouts.

A stellar chocolate stout for beginners and anyone trying to get away from the booziness of the stouts you normally see recommended on BA. Also, for those who has a bit of a sweet tooth... you're going to love this. Lots of creaminess and LOADS of chocolate flavor. Pour this puppy with your bottle nearly upside down. At 6%, yeah it is a bit heavy on the sugar scale but its smooth, delicious and perfect for an hour or so after you've digested a nice little meal with your pals during the winter months.
