500ml nitro-can served into De Molen stemware in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. I've had this before in its other forms and it was pretty good. I'm glad they went with the nitro-can for this; it would probably be ruined in a regular can. Expectations are pretty high.

A: Pours a 1.5 finger head of lovely cream, good thickness, and pretty good retention. Colour is a solid black.

Sm: Chocolate, nuts, and heavy cream. Moderately strong.

T: Very creamy but the chocolate is unfortunately restrained. Slight nuts. It's a bit bland and simple for a chocolate beer, but it's still pretty good. I preferred it on nitro-draught. Balanced but badly built.

Mf: Creamy, smooth, and wet. Sort of suits the flavour, but not really.

Dr: They should just brew a cream ale and be done with it. The emphasis here isn't on the chocolate - contrary to the epithet. Very drinkable but also quite forgettable (at least out of the nitrocan). I won't be purchasing this again.

Pured into a pint glass from a bottle...

A: Dark black brown color with a creamy light tan head.

S: Roasted malts, chocolate notes, hints of grains sneak through. Some coffee in thier too.

T: Very sweet, rich dark chocolate, more chocolate, sweetness from the malts. Slight hop bitterness.

M: Extremely creamy asnd smooth with minimal carbonation.A bit chalky but drink very well.

O: This was very enjoyable. Very smooth and delicious. A good desert beer.

Nice looking pour with a giant head. Classic black and tan. Aroma is a faint smell of chocolate milk. Taste of bitter chocolate powder with coffee tones and chicory. Mineral presence is evident in the hard water metallic aftertaste on the tongue. Mouth is creamy and thin. Overall a decent example of a milk stout. Although this could be sweeter and heavier for the style, It is very drinkable and pretty tasty. Nothing really offensive or outstanding, but a good stout and great value.
