Great thick dark pour with a lasting head and great lacing. Strong chocolate smell with a bit of roasted malt. Great smoky chocolate flavor. Very smooth and easy to drink. Great beer.

a: the color on this is a very murky dark dark brown & black. real nice 2 finger dark tan head

s: loads of milk chocolate, roasted malt, sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, vanilla, and a touch of lactose. finish on the nose is more of the chocolate

t: like the nose, there is lads of milk chocolate in the flavor. behind that is a big roasted malt flavor, and some bitterness to go along with it. brown sugar and caramel follow the roasted flavor. behind that is more milk chocolate...like a chocolate powder flavor

m: medium mouthfeel. carbonation is about mid-level; not too much

o: chocolate is dominant in this, for sure. it is a sweet stout, but not the sweetest i've ever tasted. there is a nice balance in here provided by the roasted malts that counters the chocolate with a bit of bitterness. its not too cloying, and not too heavy. this is a nice beer which i would rate slightly above average

It pours out a thick black with a one inch foamy tan head. The smell has milk chocolate up front with some nice vanilla entering in sweetly. Light malted roastiness comes through slowly as it warms. The taste is bitter and sweet in different aspects. The mouthfeel is mostly thick. It has about a medium sort of feel. It is fairly drinkable. Overall, this is pretty good. I like it and would come back again. Also, this goes great in brownies.

The nose came across very chocolate and somewhat malty. Chocolate and malt were the primary flavors. if you like the taste of chocolate in your stout then this is the one for you. The aftertaste slightly tasted of the oats and barley used in the brewing.
