Beautiful black color body with a nice tan head.
Aroma is of dark chocolate.
Taste is chocolate first then a little roasted malt and then some lactose come to play
Nice and smooth and a great milk stout.

Overly sweet. Cloying. Disgusting. Vomit inducing.

I love a GOOD chocolate stout; ie: Brooklyn Brewery's seasonal - Black Chocolate Stout.

However, this stuff is foulness personified. People can moon on about the composition and characteristics but what matters is the taste. This beer should be poured down the drain. You couldn't pay me to drink this crap.

Harmonized with bonbon milk. Appearance: black, opaque, no foam perhaps be stupidly cold; Aroma: very light chocolate, roasting; Taste: I felt more chocolate in the aroma than in the flavor, but helped enhance harmonization, hops this full bodied. With the chill last night fell well!

Very nice chocolate and coffee aromas. Pours black with tan head. Medium to heavy bitter taste. Full bodied with creamy texture, soft carbonation, and bitter finish. Pretty good, but slightly to bitter for my taste.
