A: Dark brown in color with a frothy mocha colored head. Tons of lacing and decent head retention

S: Cacao, cream, sugar, vanilla, a faint metallic aroma present.

T: Almost tastes like a chocolate soda I had when I was a kid. Sweet milk chocolate at first that has a creamy consistency to it roasted malts are also mildly present accompanied by creamy vanilla. Very unique.

M: Very thin mouthfeel goes down ridiculously smooth with low carbonation.

O: Overall a very unique beer. I've never had a stout with this level of drinkabilty and still be quite tasty.

Impulse buy at Bottle Revolution.

Pours dark, but not so menacing. Initial pour was very fizzy, but it leaves a nice slightly frothy caramel head.

Very roasty in the smell. Slight notes of coffee. Lots of dark chocolate. Kind of like a heavier Edmund Fitzgerald, or a lighter FIS.

I was really expecting lots of cream, milk, lactose, and chocolate. What I get is nice Stout flavors. Heavily roasted malts, dark chocolate, and dark leather. It seems to be lighter than Im used to. Its actually kind of reminiscent of Big Boss Aces & Ates. The coffee isnt dominant, but still floating the background. Interesting.

Has a light body and is insanely drinkable. Finishes very clean, with one last shot at the creaminess starts to come out.

Poured into a mug

A: opaque dark brown/black color with a minimal dark tan head. Looks quite creamy.

S: baker's chocolate, light coffee, sugar, a good amount of vanilla.

T: grainy toasty dark malt and mild hop up front with delicious milk chocolate sweetness. Hints of coffee, vanilla, and toffee. Much more subtle on the sweetness than I expected from the aroma.

M: smooth creamy silky mouthfeel that still has a crisp bite upfront. Very well done.

O: really delicious milk stout. Easy to drink, not too sweet, just right.

Pours a jet black with a grey/tan two finger head that fades quickly with a creamy swirl retaining and thin wea foam walls of lacing.

The aroma is sweet and earthy with milk chocolate, sugar, vanilla, and mild roast flavors.

Very chcolate with cocoa and milk chocolate flavors, nice balance of roasted grain, coffee hints and vanilla notes. Rich and sugary, sweet with a good roast balance and some earthy hops.

Very well balanced. Creamy, smooth, chewy, and thick.

Great body, balance, and sweet flavor without being cloying. Great milk stout.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip

Pours an ink black, no light getting through this bad boy. A mocha colored head rises to fill the glass, recedes slowly, no lacing left behind.

The aroma is a little muted. Lactose sugar and cocoa nibs, mild roast. I'd like this to be a little more inviting.

On the palate, some mild roast hits first before cocoa nibs and lactose sugar carry through the middle. The finish is of cocoa and sugary sweetness.

Smooth, creamy and lush. The feel is where this guy shines.

This is a really nice take on the style, and I love the concept of a chocolate milk stout.

appearance: yep, that's a stout. Black as hell. Dark mocha rim with some large bubbles and a wispy cap.
smell: Distinct chocolate. I haven't had Hershey's syrup in years but this reminds me.
taste: A little more refined than the nose. Smooth and balanced milk stout.
mouthfeel: Thick and creamy.
overall: Tasty treat. fast smooth drinker.

12oz bittle poured into DFH signature
2011 vintage

A: Pours a deep dark brown. Deep tan color head, about a quarter finger.  Fades quickly into ring around the edges. Some lacing bits on the glass after the swirl.

S: Smells of sweet sugar and vanilla.  Mutes the roasted notes.  I still get a little coffee. And milk chocolate of course.

T: Very nice sip of beer.  It's far too cold, but I get some of the coffee bitterness on the front of the tongue.  Then in the middle of the mouth I get the smoothness of the sugared milky chocolate tastes.  The roasted notes are really subdued.  The finish is clean, even though there is some chocolate bitterness.

M: Medium to full (possibly). It's silky smooth, so much so that it's thinner than expected.

O: B+ on this one. Nice littler beer, but not mind blowing.

Pours a dark, dark brown with a one finger chocolate head. Average lacing on my snifter. This is the darkest brown I've seen... or else it's black and my eyes are deceiving me. The nose is chocolate, coffee, malt, hops. A touch on the weak side, but pleasant. The taste of this beer is like drinking chocolate milk... seriously! The chocolate really shines here, and vanilla makes it's presence known quite well. A little one dimensional, but delicious. Feel is smooth as butter, with malt having its way. Nice chocolate aftertaste. Overall, for the style- I really like this, and would have it again. Cheers.
