A- pours dark brown/black with an obnoxiously large khaki head.
S- milk chocolate, cocoa
T- cocoa, sweet, milk chocolate, chocolate gets more bitter towards the finish
M- thin body and high carbonation
O- a good representation of the style with copious amounts of chocolate. It could stand to have a smoother mouthfeel but tasty none the less.

Black in color with no light penetrating this brew. A fingernail of khaki colored head rests on top. Brussels lacing. I smell lactose,chocolate, and dark malt. The flavor is bitter dark malt in the front of the palate. There's a restrained amount of chocolate and lactose present. The mouth is smooth and creamy.

Enjoyed this pint with some perfectly suited chili caramel corn at the cool and inviting 4 Hands brewpub in downtown St. Louis before a Skinny Puppy/Front Line Assembly show.

Appearance: Dark complexion. Ruby highlights. Light lace on glass.

Aroma: Ooh the decadent chocolate. Some roastiness, but they certainly captured the spirit of chocolate here. Yum.

Taste: Exquisitely smooth. The lactose infusion makes this one sooo easy to drink and mellow. Chocolate flavors all the way here, with some roastiness rounding out the flavor profile. Absolutely delicious, so much so that we grabbed growlers to bring some more home (as bottles were all sold out during our visit). Very impressed!

pours cola brown, little bit of cocoa cream head.

lots of bitter chocolate on the nose. roasted malt and slight coffee.

although a milk stout, i picked up very little sweetness. heavy on bitter chocolate and roasted malt. not overly complex and slightly one dimensional but that is not really a bad thing. would have liked a bit more sweetness.

light body, moderate carbonation.

decent overall, good stout, easy to drink.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Despite thr description, it is not black as the night. Deep brown. Collar of foam and a single tentacle of foam.

Smell - Really chocolatey. Impressive milk chocolate aroma. Slight peanut butter aroma.

Taste - Less impressive, but still decent. Milk chocolate. Less intense. Not much else going on. Not a lot of lactose, which I like. Still has a bit of peanut butter to it.

Mouthfeel - Very light and thin. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Nice chocolate. Maybe I had this beer too late in the tasting, but I don't get a lot else out of it.

Pours mahogany with a thumb of mocha colored head. Great lacing & head retention, great looking beer

S: Chocolate & a little roastyness

T: Follows the nose, a touch of mocha notes as well up front. More of the same as this warms, roastyness,with just a touch of woody hops. Finishes dry, roasty & with some serious mocha flavor

MF: Fairly creamy, medium bodied

True to its name, nice cocoa presence in this, drinks easy
