Nice chocolately stout...I love chocolate stouts, and this is a very easy drinking, smooth example of this to me. I like a lot of the heavier examples, but this is something light enough to drink a couple of on a weekly basis. Not too heavy, not real high alcohol, very drinkable.

shout out to AtlCarl for this one! thanks man!
A: pours a deep/dark brown color, creates about 2 fingers worth of head formation with very nice lacing. a nice bubbly film remains once the head dies down.
S: the chocolate character is awesome. a solid mixture of sweet fudge and milk chocolate with just a touch of bitter dark chocolate. there's a slight dark fruit character lying in the back ground adding just a touch of complexity. The brews is fairly one dimensional, but it is still pretty nice
T: all chocolate here (slight fudge, but mostly just milk chocolate) with a extreme cream finish. solid malt backbone. That's really all that is present.
M: on the lighter side of medium bodied. goes down very quickly leaving just a slight sweet milk chocolate taste on the palate.
O: glad to have tried this brew. this would definitely be something that I would purchase if I can access to it, as it would be fantastic if paired with some desert.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark brown color. It's not quite as ultra-opaque as the WnB I had just before this, but it's still dark enough to block out the light. The head is a two finger mocha shade with meh retention. There is a bit of lace left on the glass, at least.
S: Surprisingly nutty in terms of aroma. There also seems to be a combination of roasted and charred malts, as well. I don't really pick up a lot of chocolate on the nose.
T: Wait, did I say that I don't pick up a lot of chocolate aromatically? Because the chocolate is really battering the palate here. It opens the flavor profile like a wrecking ball - almost as if Terrapin melted a 70% dark cocoa bar into the beer before bottling it. The midtaste brings a lot of lactic cream in a balanced manner. It's sweet enough to make this a slow sipper rather than a chugger or even a gulper. At least the lactose never comes across as being acidic, sour, or harsh.
M: The body comes across as thicker and more syrupy than it really is, which I would attribute to the finishing cream flavor. There's some finishing astringency, too, but it's not dry enough finish-wise to balance it out. Carbonation is mediocre.
O: I feel like milk stouts are the Tito Jackson of the stout family - but this one hits my chocolate tooth enough to separate it from the pack. Totally rock solid as long as you don't expect it to be WnB.
