12oz bottle, i think the four pack was $11. Dark black color, tan head, standard stout appearance. Aroma is mostly dark chocolate with a tinge of stout Flavor is more chocolate, cocoa powder, alcohol. Slightly sweet. I've read lots of comparisons to chocolate milk and while this is indeed chocolate heavy I really don't agree, its just chocolate beer. Honestly, a glass of Horizon chocolate milk tastes better than this does.

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.

Reminiscent of Guinness in terms of appearance. As dark brown as you can go without being black. Does not let light through. Smell that roasted malt and milk chocolate. It's dessert time! Like carbonated,alcoholic chocolate milk sans milk. Viscous mouthfeel. Somewhat of an alcoholic aftertaste.

Dark velvety brown, near black in the Duvel tulip. Attractive low head but plenty of fizz on the tongue. Smells faintly like chocolate.

This does taste exactly like chocolate milk, if that's what you're looking for. Sweet and rich. There is a tart flavor that comes along, which is quite welcome, almost a capuchin yoghurt flavor. The dark roasted malt is what you'd find in a stout, though buried somewhat under the milky sugar. Towards the end of the glass it starts tasting more biter, like burnt malt. A little thickly bodied but it still pours and drinks like a beer.

Tangy and surprisingly drinkable, though you really have to like chocolate a lot. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Jubilation Fine Wines in Albuquerque.
