A- Pint glass pour from a bottle with a black body. Light brown head forms to about a finger in size but doesn't retain well at all. The cap had a bubbly texture and leaves only a thin ring behind. Lacing is pretty much non-existent for me.

S-Reminds me of chocolate milk in a way with a sweet milk chocolate note coming off strong. Besides that just some roasted cracked grains and a slight dark fruit hint. Mostly the milk chocolate.

T- Follows the nose with the massive amount of milk chocolate. Reminds me a bit of Choklat in a way, a rich sweet cocoa/chocolate milk like flavor. Deeply roast grains and dark fruit besides that. Some burnt hints as well.

MF- Creamy and foamy overall feel but a bit on the thin side with lower end carbonation. Burnt and roast bitterness in the finish.

Very rich flavors, especially of decadent milk chocolate. The body isn't as good as it could be but a pretty good beer nonetheless.

This is a really lovely beer, I especially love that chocolatey aroma that hits you immediately upon cracking the cap off. One thing that makes Harpoon beers so great is the intersection of great beer and not too expensive. There are definitely better chocolate stouts but they tend to cost more, and for a local Bostonian, ya gotta love a good Harpoon. They need to start serving Harpoon Chocolate Stout at the party at the end of the Brewery to Brewery 148 mile bicycle ride!
