Pours a deep, dark brown almost black. No light shines through. Three finger head overflows the pint glass. Mocha colored foam. Slowly settles leaves great lacing. Aroma of cocoa, coffee and dark malts. Taste is sweet milk chocolate and chocolate malts...wonderful. Mouthfeel is like velvet. Creamy and smooth with fine carbonation.

A great session beer this is an awesome chocolate milk stout, one of my favorite styles. This is by far the best of Half Acre's many departures from their world-class hoppy beers. Don't get me wrong, I like Baume Rye stout and Chub Step porter but this blows them away. Again, I am partial to sweet stouts. Reminds me of Mackeson Triple Stout back in the 80's. A grand slam from my friends at Half Acre...cheers!

Rating based on the nitro version. The regular is only a small step down. So good and creamy. Super dark and roast character. Pairs amazing with coffee.

Deep, dark black pour with a thin brown head. Great, rich chocolate aroma with some roasty notes on the nose. Slight coffee taste with the roast and a light but rich chocolate flavor. Very drinkable. Shared with a non BA friend who thought the same and said he should start trying dark beers again as he very much enjoyed this beer. The low ABV and thin viscosity also help with the enjoyment of the beer. It could be a hair thicker for my taste, but overall a very tasty milk stout.

Poured from a 64oz growler into a thick stemmed Dogfish Head snifter.

A: Pours a rich deep black that shows off a slight crimson at the edges when the glass is tilted to the light. One creamy finger of dark tan foam spreads out on top and hangs around for most of the glass. Lacing is a bit light with some delicate webbing.

S: Excellent roasty nose right off the bat. As it warms, out jumps aromas of bakers chocolate, burnt malt, caramelized brown sugar, sweet dark raisins, medium roast coffee, and a touch of fruit.

T: Smoky, burnt malt mixes it up with dark chocolate covered cherries, char, fudge brownies, bruised plums, bitter dark chocolate, campfire smoke, and sweet chocolate cake icing.

M: Starts off pretty roasty and spicy. Around the end of the beginning, the lactose comes on and breaks off some of the dryness and ushers in a sweet creaminess that sticks around until the very end of the finish when it turns a little dry again.

D: This was exceedingly easy to drink. This is one of those styles that I don't drink nearly enough of. Then something like this comes around a reminds me to broaden my horizons a little. Excellent job guys!
