Have always had my eyes on this when in Terrapin distro areas but never got around to it. Cousin reminded me of it when in Tampa, thanks Sonny!

A- Poured from the 12oz bottle into a snifter with a black body, not quite as thick as an RIS but still midnight black. Semi-aggressive pour allows a nice creamy thick mocha tan head to form to about one finger. Good head retention and lace starts as a ring at the top and some nice webs result below.

S- A nice roast forward milk stout with a clear chocolate addition above that. It does not feel artificial but reminds me of a good milk chocolate bar. Mostly malty with roast barley, caramel and some toasted hints.

T- Mostly follows what the nose brings but some yeast influence comes out. The yeast brings just a bit of a fruity and fresh baked bread feel but this is far beyond the dominant malts. Roast chocolate malts, milk chocolate, lactose sweetness, toasted nuttiness and slight caramel are in the forefront.

MF- Medium thickness overall with just a bit of creaminess to it. Carbonation is at a lower to medium level and makes it all feel just a bit to watery somehow. Roast bitterness lingers in the finish.

One of the better chocolate forward, lower-ABV stouts I can think of. A lot of vanilla and cocoa beers take on an artificial feel or the flavor just doesn't blend in, this one has a nice balance. The body is just a tiny bit thinner than I would like but the flavor is better than good.

Pour is a dark black with a deep caramel head. Nose has a heavy roast that really dominates and doesn't allow much chocolate, the hints I get are bitter and dry chocolate. Taste has much more chocolate, the body gets very thin towards the back with the roast lingering through a short and under carbonated finish. The roast doesn't really come through the flavor (just lingers after the finish). There is some rich milk chocolate but still a fair bit of dry and bitter chocolate. Not very well done.

The beer comes in a black with a fluffy brown head.

The aroma has milk chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted malt.

The flavor follows with chocolate milk, cocoa powder, a bit of roasted coffee. Almost a chocolate milk “soda.” A slight roasty bitterness on the finish. A medium plus amount of carbonation. Mouthfeel is light plus.

A very smooth milk stout. A bit light on flavor.
