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.

2011 vintage poured into a tulip.

A- nice coffee black with a two finger chocolate head. The head faded quickly and held nicely to the edge of the glass.

S- The smells of chocolate, milk, roasted malts, faint coffee and vanilla are found throughout. Smells like good chocolate milk. Although the smell is pleasant I wish there was more.... kinda faint.

T- Chocolate, milk and roasted malts. I get sweet milk chocolate at first and bitter coco at the finish. The sweet vanilla and milk flavors make for a nice blend of bitter and sweet.

M- Smooth but thin. Carbonation is pleasant. For a 6%two stout I don't expect much and there isent.

O- A nice stout for the style. Would love to see an imperial version. There's just not enough to make this one of the best but still a good beer to have.

2010 Vintage

A - Pours black with little to no head (what is there is tan in color) and minimal lacing.

S - Sweet cream, milk chocolate, faint hints of coffee and roasted malts.

T - Really sweet, it does taste like I remember chocolate milk tasting (it has been years...). Some roasted malts in the background.

M - Surprisingly thin in the body, a little too much so. It is smooth and very drinkable though. Good carbonation.

O - Moo Hoo lives up to its name, this is a sweet chocolate milk beer. It's not one to blow you away and it is too thin, but if you're in the mood for a sweet stout this one does the trick well.

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

A: brownish head on a black body. Looks thick. Good head retention on this.

S: sweet caramel, malt, roasted flavors like milk chocolate and coffee.

T: taste is not too sweet, which I very much appreciate. Many milk stouts go over the top on sweetness. This is like drinking a nice chocolate milk. Full of roasted flavor, but sweet. Excellent.

M: sweetness and thickness abound, but it's well carbonated.

O: mmm...unfermented sugars. I like this quite a bit, and at $7 for a 4 pack I'd do it again. Just the right price point for this beauty. Not over the top in any way, but a great example of the style.

Pours a deep black with a two finger frothy tan head.
The aroma is rich with chocolate with a bit of almond and caramel. Nice roasty malt presence.
Flavor is defiantly dominated by cocoa, with toasty malt, and just a tiny bit of dark fruit. The light, smooth body and soft carbonation really lends itself well to this beers delicate flavors.

3.9/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Black with very dark brown edges. Light mocha head.

Smell: Smells just like Ovaltine (chocolate powder for making chocolate flavored milk). The similarity is uncanny. Lucky for the brew, I loved Ovaltine as a kid, so it scores points for unlocking a sense of nostalgia in me. Other smells are roasted malts, chocolate and a bit of caramel.

Taste: Far more roasted malts and less chocolate than the nose, at least up front. Don't get me wrong though, it is extremely chocolaty. A bit of coffee mixed in. It is, as other reviewers have said, kind of like a chocolate milk for adults.

Mouthfeel: A bit thin in my opinion though it is definitely adequate. Light carbonation and a very velvety texture.

Overall: Definitely delivers on its mission of being a chocolate milk beer, better than any other beer I have had besides Williamsburg Alewerks Washington's Porter (have yet to try Chokolat though). Washington's did blow this out of the water however. One then I found very nice about this really good brew is the variety between the smell and taste. It is hard to remember this much variability which makes it special in my opinion. Very nice brew.

pitch black body with a half inch of khaki colored creamy foam settles to a thin ring. head has poor retention and lacing. smell is mostly milk chocolate, there are also hints of roasted malts and dark chocolate. taste follows the nose with milk chocolate leading the way and a bitter dark chocolate finish. mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. medium to thin body with decent carbonation. overall this is a really good milk stout, and i am glad i finally got to try it.

Was very excited to try this beer and was slightly disappointed. This stout is a milk stout, but also a chocolate milk stout. nice dark color, but the smell tells the truth. it is extremely chocolatey! If you like chocolat youll love this. Dont be scared of the name stout, its not very stout.

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A: Pours a deep chocolate brown with a thick creamy foam the color of caramel. Nice head retention. Leaves a nice sticky lace down the glass.

S: Smells like...chocolate milk. Seriously. The more it warms up the more the chocolate note comes out. Getting maybe the slightest waft of coffee and some slight toasted notes.

T: Toasted/burned malts are much more apparent than in the smell, and in a good way. The 2nd half of the sip gives way to bitter dark chocolate. The finish really does taste like chocolate milk, but for adults. Like the nose, only the fainest coffee hint.

M: A good mouthfeel. When you swallow you know you've just taken a swig of beer. It definitely leaves you wanting to have the 2nd sip. If i have the smallest most nit-picky complaint, it would be that it could be just a touch on the thin side. Pretty insignificant.

O: A very solid offering. I could easily put back 3 or 4 of these. It's really quite tasty. It has pushed it's way to one of my favorites. Love it.

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

A - Black as coal. Thin tan head on vigorous pour. Head resides quickly. Decent lacing is evident.

S - Lots of roasted barley aroma. A creamy and caramel smell behind the roast is here. Roasted barley has a slightly astringent smell.

T - Big does of the roasted and astringent barley up front. Not very pleasant tasting in the beginning. Chocolate and coffee with a hint of cream after the initial roast tastes. Aftertaste is definitely of chocolate milk.

M - Heavy bodied with no discernible alcohol burn or carbonation bite.

O - A decent beer. The roast is a bit too high for me, it makes the beer astringent and unpleasant at times. Overall it's slightly above your average beer.

2011 bottling

Pored from a 12oz bottle into a Bruery tulip.

A: Pours an opaque black color. No light shining through. Two fingers of creamy tan head with decent retention and not much lacing.

S: Roasted malts and bitter chocolate round out the nose.

T: Roasted malt up front and then the chocolate milk flavor comes in on the back end. Finishes fairly clean with a touch of chocolate bitterness.

M: Nice smooth medium body. Light carbonation dances on the tongue. Smooth and easy to drink.

Overall this a nice example of the style. A unique easy drinking stout.
