look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Looks like a porter, smells like a porter (anyone who can school me in how to better rate porters based on appearance, feel free to BM me). Extra points on appearance because I love the label - makes me hungry for chocolate and milk, which made the beer irresistible.
The taste is great, it's an awesome porter, but I'm suspicious that the brewers were able to hide behind the milk/chocolate notes, the way a guitarist might hide behind his effects pedals... I think it's awesome, but I also think I expected more... and based upon the kick-ass label, I don't think that's unreasonable! I'm just an ignorant consumer, after all...
As far as mouthfeel is concerned, I feel like it's got the mouthfeel of a typical porter - I'm usually not a fan, but it works with this beers sweetness, so I'm happy with it.

Overall, it's a good beer, but if it were available in my market I don't think I would buy it very often. Very happy to have gotten to try it, and hopefully we get it here soon (because I DO like it, and I WOULD buy it, just not all the time).

Thanks again to CreepinJeeper for this awesome extra!

BIG TIME EDIT: I just realized this beer is classified as a stout... I know that porters are stouts, and stouts are porters, but this changes things. This is a little weak for a stout. Too carbonated, too light. Still Good. Carry on.
