Mmmm, have now enjoyed 3 bottles of this at various temperatures. Cold, warming, and nearly room temperature and it works at all 3 levels. A nearly silkly smooth stout (about as close to nitro as you can get w/o being nitro), and a perfect level of chocolate flavor. I can't stand chocolate stouts that are too heavy on the chocolate - it's beer not YooHoo.

This is exactly what I love beer to look like. Satiny black, that winks back at you when you look at it. Just a touch of espresso foam brown that dances away as soon as you look at it, but leaves its marks on the wall. I've been excited to try this beer for some time, and I can already tell I'm going to like it. A lot.

Kind of a let down, though putting my nose to it. Not unappealing, just not really... anything. Smells kind of roasty-ish, hints of chocolate, and I swear something kind of rubbery. Huh.

OK, well that's more like it. The first thing I notice is just how incredibly creamy and smoothe it is. It's decently carbonated, too, so to have the effervescence playing off your tongue and still have an overwhelmingly creamy experience... it's a good 'un. The flavours are as you would expect: sweet creamy chocolate dominates everything else, with the sweet being bolstered by a definite lactose... sweetness. I figured this would be dessert, and it fits that bill quite well. There's some general roastiness and a hint of the thought of considerations of coffee perhaps, though that could just be a Pavlovian response to expecting to find it in dark beers. milky, syrupy goodness through and through.

Glossy sable black, decent head of mocha that dissipates quickly. Great looking beer. Smell is an initial flash of piney, crisp-fruit hops, like grapes. No real chocolate, but some coffee, lightly. Taste is an odd thing- initial taste is of vinous fruitiness, like grapes. Not what I'm expecting from a self-declared chocolate milk stout. Throws off the whole beer. There is some light pseudo cocoa tates, but the overall impression is of apple sweetness, herbaly hops and an odd finish. Taste is poor, i do not care for this beer.
