2.9/5 rDev -28.6%
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a smallish fizzy brown head that quickly goes to a thin film.
The aroma is sweet lactic chocolate, some coffee and some bitterness from the roast.
The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate with some roast. It's a little acidic with some vegetal notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, an OK milk stout with a few off notes. Not as sweet as I thought it would be. A bit pricey at $10 per 4 pack.

Pours black with a two finger mocha head. Nice retention on the head and it leaves a good amount of lacing. The aroma has cocoa and dark roasted malt. Not a very strong aroma, but still nice.
The taste is bolder than the aroma suggests. There is milk chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted malt, and some vanilla. Sweet, with only a little bitterness from the dark roasted malt. Very nice.
Medium to full bodied, with below average carbonation. Creamy. smooth, and easy to drink. I would gladly buy this again.

Pours as dark as you could hope for. A half finger of latte brown head sinks down to a stubborn cap of carbonation that provides a good amount of lace.
Cocoa powder, almond, some brown ale type aromas, mild coffee... this is quite a bit tamer than I was anticipating.
The palate immediately reminds me of Southern Tier's chocolate stouts... rather artificial, creamy and sweet, some kind of metallic cocoa powder on the finish. Maybe a bit of coffee is buried in here somewhere as well. I'm glad I only grabbed a single of this one.

A: Dark brown with minimal light penetrating the edges.
S: Chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, sweet malts, hints of maple syrup.
T: Wow! Sweet milk chocolate, coffee, sweet malts, vanilla, slightly bitter chocolate, more bitter in the aftertaste.
M: Creamy, almost syrupy texture. Very smooth, basically no alcohol presence.
O: A great beer! Its definitely a desert beer. Best milk stout I have tried yet. Let it warm up, the chocolate flavors become more defined as is warms.

12oz bottle to New Belgium Globe.
A: Dark brown pour with lightly transparent edges; minimal lacing.
S: Big lactose sugar, roast and roasted malt, sweeter malt notes, lots of milk chocolate, hint of caramel...vanilla as well?
T: Roast and milk chocolate. Lots of chocolate here, meshing very well with the milk sugar presence. There is some caramel and vanilla here as well.
MF: Creamy body, more-or-less medium bodied, light to medium carbonation lends itself to making this beer smooth and velvety.
O: Tasty, if a bit sweet; hey, this is a sweet stout. Milk chocolate and lactose comes through brilliantly. Pretty nice.

Bottle into quasi-tulip glass
Appearance: Opaque deep brown, almost black. Unimpressive, lacy, fine head. Head improves as it rests, very resilient
Smell: Milk stout! Sweet, sort of syrupy smell
Taste: Wow. Not complex, but a wallop of light chocolate with pleasant milky vanilla backbone. No chocolate bitterness at all. Is this beer hopped at all?
Mouthfeel: Like very decent chocolate, melting in the mouth. Resilient coating.
Aftertaste: Mild but slightly warming and pleasant.
My take: A sweet and excellent beer. Not overpowering enough to make a bad day great, but the perfect compliment to other quiet joys. This beer makes me happy.

Pours an ebony color with a small, very fine head that leaves little bits of lacing.
Smells of chocolate with a bit of sweetness.
Tastes of the sweet chocolate notes mostly. Chocolate dominates the profile with slightly sweet milk chocolate notes. A bit of cream notes come through as well. Coffee notes are understated and definitely not the focus. Some dark fruit comes through a bit more as it warms.
Mouthfeel is medium-full with a creamy amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is solid, but nothing spectacular. Worth a try if you like the chocolate notes to come through.

It pours black with s small tan head of foam.
Notes of milk chocolate and roasted malts on the smell. Not overly sweet as I kind of expected.
Nice milk chocolate flavour up front, gets a bit sweet mid palate, finishes with some semi sweet chocolate and a "blast" of alcohol.
This is pretty good but not something I'd drink much of. Too high on the abv scale for me.

Being a milk stout, sweetness is expected and doesn't disappoint. A dark, smooth pour with some big foam a bit soapy
Milk chocolate and sugary aroma, some caramel and dark plum
This is a smooth stout. Wondered if I would get dark or milk chocolate, and it's the latter. Makes it sweeter. Some dark fruit/berry. Hints of toffee and coffee. Not picking up much to any booze on this one. Pretty nice
Feels sweet and smooth. Carbonation is just right to get the feel of the chocolate. Nice beer
