12oz bottle into snifter - thanks Penguin

Deep black pour with a bubbled crop of tanned head perched on top. Bubbly retention, spotty lacing and a wisp of film.

Mild chocolaty scents with cocoa, milk sugar and caramel. Roasted dark malts and soft warmth.

Intensely flavorful milk chocolate, cocoa powder and caramel swirl together into a beery transformation of hot cocoa. Sweet and balanced, roasted dark malts, bread crust and milk sugar. Finishes a bit chalky and chocolaty.

Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, chewy and smooth on the tongue. A delicious, chocolate-forward stout, although I wish the nose was as impressive as the profile was.

I have had this on tap a few places around Houston. D&T and Hay Merchant most recently.

A: Pours a nearly opaque black color. A bit of brown/ruby red around the edges. A two finger khaki head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Roasted malt, light cereal grains. Then the milk chocolate takes over. Silky, lightly lactic chocolate is the show as this warms.
T: Like the nose, roasted malt and cereal grains up front. Baked bread, and that wonderful silky milk chocolate takes over and is a real treat. Near perfect for the style.
M/D: A full body that is not overly viscous. Moderate carbonation, and I can't describe how silky smooth this is. While the alcohol is a bit strong for the style, it is still incredibly easy to drink. I will need to get bottles asap.

Love it. I can forgive the higher ABV (for my liking) cause this is so flavorful and enjoyable to drink. A really good imperial sweet stout. Highly recommended.

A-Dark brown/black....minimal head

S-Milk chocolate....whopper candy...coffee heavily laden with cream..

T-Nice lactose impressions....whoppers candy again...milk chocolate....just a slight sour note on the finish...very slight..

M-Drinks more like a 5% stout than an 8.5% stout....body is medium with a slightly syruppy impression...the higher ABV is indistinguishable.

O-Nice beer. I bought a single of this and thought it read "chocolate mint stout"...time for reading glasses I guess. Nicely done beer. Could drink a couple or three of these in a sitting...

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.

This beer pours an opaque black color. The head is a quarter inch of tan foam that recedes quickly into sparse lacing. The aroma is of melted milk chocolate, with hints of roasted malt beneath. The taste is full of chocolate with some nice roasted malt and graham cracker notes rounding things out. The mouthfeel is full bodied with a silky chewy texture, and appropriately mild carbonation. Overall, this might not be a mind blowing chocolate stout, but it is a damn good one.

Pours very dark red-brown color with a small, instantly disappearing beige head, seems quite fizzy too leaving a nice sugary layer on the glass. Aroma has milky chocolate, some fruity dark malts and caramel. Flavor is quite chocolaty too, faint vanilla, caramel malts and lingering fruitiness on the finish. Strong carbonation, creamy, roasty, sugary and chocolaty palate. Could have been a bit heavier on the body and a bit less carbonated, still quite nice though.
