12oz bottle into a pint glass. Picked this up at Inari Wines in Bristol, VA. Since Terrapin pulled out of NE TN this is the closest place to get it.

Pours jet black with a thin head that quickly fades to a ring around the side of the glass.

Smells of chocolate along with some roasted malt.

The milk chocolate is quite up front in the flavor with some roasted malt falling in behind. Lactose sweetness is quite present as well giving this beer a chocolate milk quality. There is a slight bitterness to balance out the sweetness.

Overall this is a very nice beer. The sweetness never does become cloying and the chocolate is very nice.

2010 Seasonal, according to the label, but I'm pretty sure this is from the 2011 batch; Poured in a tulip.

A - 1/2" of mocha colored, fizzy head that doesn't stick around long; Very dark brown appearance - next to black; Not too much lacing left in the glass

S - Very sweet aroma comprised of chocolate milk, cocoa nibs, and just a bit of caramel, cinnamon, and ginger spices; Very inviting aroma

T - The chocolate milk sweetness is present here as well, but it's not as pronounced as the nose; Cocoa nibs are present as well with a touch of cinnamon and ginger; Roasty flavors and a slight bitterness come through in the finish to keep this from being an overdose of chocolate

M - Good amount of carbonation; Medium bodied; Smooth mouthfeel, but zesty from the carbonation as well

O - As the name and label suggests, there is a good bit chocolate milk flavor in this beer. I think the aroma had a bigger dose of the chocolate than the taste, but the flavor had a nice addition of spices and roasty character to provide some balance. Overall, I enjoyed the 4-pack I bought of this beer and would like to have it again when next year's batch comes around.

12 oz. bottle served in a CBS snifter. 2011 seasonal. Big thanks to Holland(Eric) for the extra!

A: Pours a solid black with a very thin tan colored head forming on the pour. It dissipates quickly leaving a very thin collar.

S: The smell is mostly consistent of milk chocolate, some brown sugar, and a light toasted malt. Fairly straight forward for the style.

T: The taste is mainly a grainy dark malt and milk chocolate up front, very sugary. There is a milk dud like quality to it, but overall it is very sweet.

M: The mouthfeel is thin to medium and just has a sugary sweetness that stays with the palate for a little while.

O: Milk stouts of all kinds just aren't for me. They are too thin and sweet for the stout style IMO and I just really do not like the characteristics they bring to the table. The beer wasn't bad, but it's just not my cup of tea.

I picked up a bottle of this while in North Carolina this week. Poured into a pint glass at home.

The beer is dark brown and nearly opaque, with a thin tan foam that looks creamy due to small bubble size. This has a really sweet aroma, chocolate being dominant but with lactose coming in strong too. Same with the taste, this is like a liquid firm of Hersheys milk chocolate. While that SOUNDS really good I found that this gets tiring after a few sips. It just got too sweet for me. Lasting sickly sweet aftertaste.

One and done. I couldn't drink more due to the cloyingly sweet taste. Still, a solid effort and probably Terrapin achieved their target on this one.

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.
