Pours a lighter brown shade, huge billowing tan head of foam, fairly long lasting retention also. Halo of delicate lacing in the glass, looks pretty nice.

Milk chocolate aromas, some husky black malt underneath that.

Very light bodied, authentic chocolate flavors mingle with roasted malt and coffee flavors. Initial natural sweetness and lingering dry roast, clean feel. Deceptively simple, though more than the sum of its parts.

Thanks to Mark & Kathy for this one!

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.

A - Opaque, jet-black color with a one-finger,light brown head of foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of sweet milk chocolate and cocoa nibs.

T - Good chocolate flavor like cocoa nibs, some roastiness and just a touch of bitterness.

M - It was crisp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a clean finish.

O -This is a really delicious beer. I can't say enough about how much every 4 Hands beer impressed me. Keep 'em coming.

An interesting beer to have while making supper. Thanks to rudzud for giving me this to try.

Pours a dark colored fizzy 1 finger head that fades slower than I expected from the many bigger fizzy bubbles, but still a med pace, decent frothy lacing, just about pitch black beer.

Nose just erupts with cocoa and chocolate, milk chocolate and a creamy lush chocolate, cocoa nibs and a little baker's choc, even a bit fudgey, I think a hint of lactose through that, and a little doughy cookie note, bit of a chocolate chip cookie.

Taste is more of the same, lots of chocolate and cocoa, quite a creamy milk chocolate, even a little chocolate milk but not a lot as a bit of lactose comes through. Again a mild doughy cookie malt center with hint of caramel and more chocolate chip cookie, mild dry cocoa powder too. Hint of an acrid like roasty malt as well with touch of coffee. Finish is a little sweet but quite dry, lactose dry finish, with a little more lush chocolate and cocoa, mild bitterness, and that's about it.

Mouth is med bod, fairly creamy and lush, nice carb.

Overall not bad, lots of great chocolate and cookie dough, nice cocoa and lactose milk chocolate, even a hint of roasted malt too, pretty tasty and enjoyable. Thanks Matt!

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

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.
