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!

Very enjoyable milk stout. Cannot remember a chocolate beer that tasted so much like chocolate.

Poured from a can into a tulip

A. Pours a very dark brown, opaque with a light tan frothy 2 finger head. Nice lacing.

S. Big chocolate as expected. Roasted malts.

T. Agreeing with the nose chocolate and roasted malts take the show.

M. Kind of light bodied for a stout. Also a decent amount of carbonation. Finishes pretty clean.

O. Not a bad beer. Flavor is kind of one dimensional but they got what they were aiming for so I can't flaw that. But its just a little light for a stout for me.

12 oz can poured into a shaker pint.

Deep brown with a short tan head that dissipates quickly. Some light penetration along the rim.

Cocoa nib, milk chocolate, cola, caramel, and roasted barley.

Taste
Milk chocolate, cocoa, and cola. Roasted barley and caramel. Some decent lactose sweetness.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, crisp, balanced, and well carbonated.

Nice chocolate flavors for such a low abv.

12oz can, date stamped 11415 on bottom - canned on date perhaps. I was happy to see this one changed to the 12oz format recently. The bomber format was overpriced and I couldn't bring myself to buy it even though I was very interested
A - dark brown body, foamy tan head holds a bit of retention
S - cocoa nib, chocolate, roasted barley
T - sweetened cocoa with a bit of roast in there, milk chocolate
M - medium body, creamy, well balanced
O - great beer for the chocolate lover. I may buy this from time to time.

A: very dark brown with finger of tan head. Sticky lacing
S: chocolate, also sassafras, root beer cola, bitter coffee
T: get some chocolate upfront, sweet, root beer, roasted malt. it's good but more like a chocolate soda than chocolate milk
MF: a little thin for a chocolate stout, some prickly carbonation, overall very drinkable
O: good but not great chocolate milk stout, cola taste dominates more than the chocolate, little bit thin and too carbonated

From a 12 oz can: Pours very dark brown with a good head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, as one would expect, though not particularly strong. Upon sipping, a delicious smokiness surprised me because I did not detect it in the aroma. A rich chocolaty flavor with a sweet finish. Feels very light and smooth for such a dark beer. Not creamy as might be inferred from the name. Overall, nice and refreshing, like a glass of chocolate milk. Easily sessionable, and very enjoyable.
