Very creamy from the nitro. Flavor is most definitely dark chocolate on the back of the palette, but no lingering sweetness that would come from actual chocolate. Enjoyable.

4th bottle in a mug...

Opaque black color. The brown foamy head dies fast. Strong legs. A little dull.
Awesome smell of sweet chocolate and coffee, almost nutty, with spicy herbal hops.
Extra rich toasty and strong bitter taste of chocolate coffee. Too much spices and bitter for my taste. Too overwhelming; should be more sweet.

Creamy heavy body with faint carbonation. Chalky with chunks of detritus.
Very long bitter and strong invading mouthcoating.

An average beer with a treacherous smell. I find it hard to drink and tasted better local chocolate beers...Disappointed!

It's ok. More dark fruity than chocolatey though.

I was disappointed by this beer. Tasted bland, and barely noticed any chocolate flavor or aroma.

Surprised that this beer is so highly rated. It taste like beer and chocolate tin cans. Perhaps only because of the broad availability and rated as a comparison to other stouts? Compared to the quality microbrews of this variety, I find it inferior.

At the strong end for chocolate notes with a nice sweet-bitter aftertaste.

I had this in a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color. A thin white to off white foamy head appeared and dissipated within seconds barely leaving any lacing.
The smell had a large amount of roasty chocolate-ness. Light coffee intrudes in a decent way.
The taste was basically the same and had a sly coffee/chocolate aftertaste leading to the same sort of finish.
The mouthfeel was somewhat sharp through the carbonation but smooth as it carried itself over my tongue.
Overall, in my opinion, I like this milk/sweet stout. I'd have it again as dessert.
