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.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
