Our chocolate milk stout pours black as the night sky with aromas of dark chocolate, chocolate malt, & more chocolate. With a firm, tan head & a rich velvety mouthfeel our Chocolate Milk Stout is a perfect addition to the change of seasons. Brewed with two pounds of cacoa nibs per barrel this beer is a chocolate lovers dream!

Tasted 16 February 2013.

Pours black in the glass, deep brown at the edges. Half-finger of pale tan head, relaxes to a thin ring around the surface, and a touch of lacing.

Smell is a light milk stout topped with woody cacao and coffee. It's thin; fortunately the lactose adds some body and smoothness. A touch of smoke leaks in from the dark roast. But mostly it's bottom and top, and hollow in the middle. Lacking body, oomph, robustness.

Taste is thin, a bit flat, and dominated by a char bitterness and wood. I get very little milk or chocolate, which is disappointing. This beer isn't terrible, but I'd have a hard time calling it good.

Mouthfeel is fine. It's a low-ABV stout, so it's not super surprising that it's thin. But the milky feel isn't there, and it's even thinner than I'd expect. Carbonation is fine.

Nothing impressive about this one. As I said above, it's not terrible. But I'm not loving it.

Pours deep black in color with little head. Smells of chocolate and tastes of it as well. Not my favorite chocolate stout but very drinkable.

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.

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!
