Lucky me, I found these in a singles cooler and bought the three they had left and put it in an $9.99 mix-a-six. I think these are about $12 for a four pack, no?

Appearance (4.5) : Super dark chocolate milk colored head about three fingers tall; a tightly knit creamy density. The body is coffee brown/coffee black with 100% opacity. The head leaves generous lacing all the way down as it recedes at a snails' pace.

Aroma (4) : Chocolate milk, cocoa bean, fresh plant, some esters, more milk chocolate, and some roasted coffee bean. Bouquet is medium strength.

Taste (4.25) : Very smooth. Roasted coffee bean with some milk chocolate and hoppy bean bitterness. Some faint char and roasted malt remains on the palate on the finish.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : A little more watery than I expected, so that's a let down. But what is there is creamy, smooth, and oh, so yummy. It's got a medium bodied mouthfeel with some tangy zippy carbonation that zaps the tongue.

Overall (4.19) : I'm glad I bought this and if they stock more, I'll go back again. This is a nice, potent, lovely aromatic and full-flavored stout. There's not a whole lot of chocolate like the name suggests, but it's a damn good beer nonetheless.

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!
