Pours a dark brown. Taste is light coffee and hershey milk chocolate syrup. Medium body and low carbonation, Guinness-like mouthfeel.
Overall good but a bit light in the nose and taste.

Appearance- The beer was a dark black color with a mocha colored head.

Smell - The nose was a semi-sweet combination of dark chocolate and lactose.

Taste - The dark chocolate is more better than sweet. The dark chocolate becomes more pronounced toward the back. I think the carbonation keeps any sweetness from lingering.

Mouthfeel- Again, I think the level of carbonation brushes away any sense of sweetness. The carbonation is too high.

Overall - A chocolate milk stout would seem to target the sweet tooth. I feel like Half Acre missed the mark on this one. It is not sweet enough and the carbonation is too aggressive.

This is straight up chocolate milk in stout form. Pillowy, dairy forward, cocoa heavy with a body that is at once chewy and slick. Great balance with the bitter elements smoothed out by the sweet playful chocolatey pieces. Melt down some ice cream and you'll find a similarly creamy delight. This is good all round.

I pulled this one out of the back of my cellar to split with my wife.

It pours a dark, dark brown with a tan head and lacing.

Lots of heavy roast and dark fruit on the nose.

Initial taste is roasted malts, raisins, a bit of coco, dark chocolate and some coffee type notes. The chocolate notes aren't as strong as I was hoping for, but I'm not sure how old this bottle is, so maybe they faded a bit. The beer has some sweetness as expected.

The mouth is nice being both hefty and slick.

This went down really smoothly. It was a great nightcap!

I will revisit in the future to see if a fresher bottle has more chocolate notes.
