The brew is black with a mocha head. The head is small and quickly disappears. Nothing above average here.

The nose is very inviting and makes me hungry. The smell is dominated by what can only be described as rich chocolate milk. The aroma is unmistakeably chocolate, however there's something about the aroma that makes me think of chocolate milk. I suppose it's the lacto, but I cannot say for certain. Beyond the chocolate are hints of roasted grains.

The flavor is a little more complex than the nose. I think there is more balance between the chocolate and roast flavors.

The feel is a solid medium. There's lots of creaminess as well which coats the mouth nicely. The coating lets you continue to enjoy the flavors. The finish is dry.

Overall this is a very delicious and rich chocolate milk stout. The flavor deserves the most praise, however it's close to being too much. In other words, if the flavors were turned up a couple notches I would consider this brew to be cloying. This stout has Spiteful's trademark dryness and roast that we've enjoyed in past brews.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My first beer from Spiteful Brewing, out of Chicago. These guys have been creating a buzz and have been putting out lots of new beers at my local beer store. Awesome label art; I can't wait to try it.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a slick solid opaque black colored body with a finger and a half of luscious dark chocolate mocha head. Head recedes to a fat dark mocha ring. Looks truly mouthwatering.

S - Smell is of milk chocolate, some cold coffee, used coffee grounds, cream, hint of hops, and a strong powdery lactose / milk smell. As it warms, I get a cherry / strawberry jam aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose: some bitter dark chocolate / coffee bean roast, cocoa, cream, and some crisp bitter dark fruit tartness on the finish.

M - Feel is powdery, sticky, and creamy. Dry cocoa and coffee bean roast on the finish. Medium-bodied with maybe just a tad too much carbonation, but otherwise, delicious.

Overall, an awesome chocolate milk stout. Definitely rivals some of the bigger and better know stouts I've had from other breweries. Three Floyds Moloko comes to mind as a comparison, but I couldn't say if it's better or not. Either way, this is a delicious first beer from Spiteful Brewing, and I look forward to trying the rest.

Spiteful Brewing Mrs. O'Leary's Chocolate Milk Stout ---4/5.
