"Seasonal 2013." Cute graphic of their mascot turtle in a cowsuit complete with prominent udders, holding a sheaf of grain.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a tall tumbler.

a: Black with a hint of clear ruby at the bottom, topped by a two finger thick brown head which receded rather quickly to a thin surface foam film and a little lacing.

s: Chocolate.

t: Milk chocolate over a thin dark malt base. Chocolate flavor seemed artificial at first, although we are assured on the label it comes from "cocoa nibs and shells."

m: Light to moderate, light for a stout, verging on watery.

o: A different-tasting chocolate stout, more watery than milky, but easy-drinking and becomes more pleasant. First impression is novelty, then a bit grating, then smoother and more pleasant.

12 oz. bottle obtained on trade (thanks, GMRFx!), unknown bottling date but 2012 vintage, poured into my *** snifter glass, drank 19/14 over ~30 minutes

A: 3/3 - pitch black, no clarity, poured with a creamy mahogany head that settled into a subtle glass lacing with some mild froth on top. moderate alcohol legs, low-to-moderate carbonation

S: 10/12 - lots of milk chocolate, Yoo-Hoo, marshmellow and some coffee notes, but the star of the show is certainly chocolate

T: 18/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a soft bitterness supplied by the chocolate and roasted malts; in the middle of the mouth, there's a subtle creaminess with a chocolate-caramel sweetness; albeit there is some alcohol, the booze is not especially present

M: 4/5 - creamy but thinner than I expected in an American sweet stout; again, moderate alcohol body and subtly inviting aftertaste

O: 8/10 - I have had it before but this experience with 2+ years on the beer really solidified the quality of this example of an American sweet stout with an emphasis on chocolate; cheers!

TOTAL = 43/50

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle dated 12/15/13 so relatively fresh, into a tulip glass

A - Black, one finger head that dissipates almost immediately. No lace to speak of

S - Chocolate, lactose, but overall somewhat muted. Hoping for a little more but not much of an aroma on this until... it warms! Smell now shines. Sweet malts and chocolate and vanilla, very nice

T - Dark and milk chocolate, cocoa, lactose, roasted malts, light coffee, hints of vanilla in the finish

M - Pretty smooth but a thin and carbonated feel, rolls off the tongue nicely

O - Pretty solid offering, nothing spectacular. Has a good mix of sweetness and ABV. As it warms im finding it to be a more well rounded beer but it feels too close to chocolate soda for me

Poured from bottle into tulip. I think I picked this up at State Line Liquors, Elkton, MD...
Pours black with a quick 1/2 finger tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and chocolate. A slight crispness to it. Taste of chocolate...well more cocoa if you know what I mean...more raw chocolate than say Hershey...a bit of roasted malt and milkyness as well. Its really smooth and super easy to drink. Really nice milk stout. Not usually a fan, but this is nice. Would love to have this on cask.
