Served in a nonic pint glass.

Taking in some fireworks on my buddy's boat with a nice beer in hand. Good times on the Fourth. This stuff pours a deep, dark black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, chocolate syrup, and a hint of sweet coffee, similar to Kahlua. The taste brings in more of the same, with the chocolate really taking center stage, as one would expect. The body is a hefty-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, a pretty damn tasty beer, one that went rather well with the fireworks and the nautical activities. Good times.

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.
