Lacks body and aroma, and may be a little over carbonated. However these shortcomings are made up for with a moreish flavour that has all the elements a milk stout should have in the taste department.

Plenty of sweet chocolate to be found here, and very easy to drink. Definitely worth a try

Served in a shaker pint glass.

Well, we've gotta do something now that we've left the new Bigby's, so why not crack open a chocolate milk stout that VDubb tells me is quite tasty? It pours a straight black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose confirms the name, comprising cocoa powder, mild roasted malts, and a touch of sweet coffee for the ever-loving sake of it. The taste brings in more of the same, the milk chocolate character shining in all its cocoa-y glory. The body is a lithe-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a rather tasty stout, one I'll likely purchase several times in the near future. Get some.

Cool label! That's about the highlight of this beer for me. Frankly, I don't even taste chocolate ... I taste and smell burnt espresso beans. Also kind of watery. I expect a stout to feel/taste thick and rich ... this one seems thin and weak. There is so much potential for a beer like this but it seems this brewery (and many others like it) are just trying to ride the profit wave with uninspiring products. Too bad. I suppose there's a chance it somehow became skunked? Bottled on 3/25/14.
