Taste is chocolate milk and some vanilla with coffee and toasty malts towards the end.

Very thin mouthfeel and very easy to drink. Alcohol is hidden well. Great dessert beer.

Cola black with a permanently thick, dense creamy tan head.

Smell is pretty standard and nondescript roasted malt, nearing coffee, with notes of spiced cola and milk.

Taste is much more unique, like chocolate milk spiked with a little roasted coffee.

Thin but creamy soft with a uniquely dry chewy finish.

definitely a unique taste for a stout. a little light when it comes to mouth feel but the taste delivers a creamy vanilla with a nice sweet aftertaste. great dessert beer.

Poured from a 16oz Nitro can into a Voodoo Teku glass. Thanks HoppyBastard1 for this generous extra.

Pours a beautiful deep brown body with a big frothy cloud-like head that has a nice brown-to-light brown gradient that eventually settles to a thick layer of retention and lacing. All the great looks of a nitro beer.

Aromas are coffee and chocolate. Taste matches the nose with a deeper chocolate flavor.. very fudgey, very chocolatey. Milk chocolate with a lightly roasty aftertaste. Smooth, silky mouthfeel, very easy to drink.

A nice change of pace.. a very well done nitro beer. This is where nitro adds something to a beer.. but not all styles would benefit like this one.

Tasted on tap in a sample glass (and ultmately a snifter). Truly a unique beer - pours a dark brown with a one finger mocha head. The nose is straight chocolate milk, and the palate follows suit with notes of coffee quickly being drowned in a creamy bath of chocolate milk. The body is where this beer really falls apart though. The cream of the chocolate milk is very evident at first, but gives way too an extremely thin, almost watery mouthfeel. This is the antithesis of what this beer should be going for in terms of body, and the watery mouthfeel only accentuates a palate that is ultimately disappointingly one-dimensional. There's absolutely a novelty factor to this beer, but it falls far short of being balanced enough to stand on its own throughout an entire glass.
