4.05/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured black with a tan-colored head. It's very difficult to see through this beer when holding it up to a light but there appears to be a moderate level of carbonation based on the amount of bubbles rising to the surface.
S: There's a gentle aroma of chocolate with some notes of roasted malts.
T: The taste is both creamy and somewhat sweet and filled with flavors of milk chocolate. There are also some hints of roasted malts. The finish is slightly bitter.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, smooth and a bit thin on the palate; the finish feels somewhat dry.
D: It's very easy to drink and goes down very smoothly; this is definitely a sessionable beer.

4.15/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a black color with a creamy tan head; tiny bubbles galore, great retention and good lacing

Smell: Smells like...chocolate milk

Taste: Starts out with a sweet milk chocolate flavor; after the swallow some modest bitter elements kick in, providing a slightly balancing effect

Mouthfeel: Rich and creamy; very low carbonation

Drinkability: Extremely drinkable, although the flavor is not as interesting as the bottled version
