Well there is a lot to say about this beer. This is obviously a stout but for me there should be a sub class called dessert beers. So I'll judge this stout in the dessert stout beer category.

This pours a thick black with minimal head which a guess seem pretty standard for non nitro stouts. The smell is chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. It's a pretty sweet smell that of course smells like a dessert.

The taste is a very creamy chocolate cake. Excellent for an after meal closer when everyone is ordering dessert but you want to keep drinking. Perhaps in context of eating out and looking for a post dinner closer, it may be the best. It's silky smooth, a little thick and tons of chocolate taste.

I would never crack this beer as a starter or for that matter anytime other than an end of night closer. But compared to other chocolate stouts, this is top notch. Not too sweet and not too bitter. The only knock on it is that its a complete nitche beer. Not sure if I would every want this other than a closer. But for what it is , it's a great beer from perhaps the most underrated brewery out there.

Nice chocolately stout...I love chocolate stouts, and this is a very easy drinking, smooth example of this to me. I like a lot of the heavier examples, but this is something light enough to drink a couple of on a weekly basis. Not too heavy, not real high alcohol, very drinkable.

shout out to AtlCarl for this one! thanks man!

A: pours a deep/dark brown color, creates about 2 fingers worth of head formation with very nice lacing. a nice bubbly film remains once the head dies down.

S: the chocolate character is awesome. a solid mixture of sweet fudge and milk chocolate with just a touch of bitter dark chocolate. there's a slight dark fruit character lying in the back ground adding just a touch of complexity. The brews is fairly one dimensional, but it is still pretty nice

T: all chocolate here (slight fudge, but mostly just milk chocolate) with a extreme cream finish. solid malt backbone. That's really all that is present.

M: on the lighter side of medium bodied. goes down very quickly leaving just a slight sweet milk chocolate taste on the palate.

O: glad to have tried this brew. this would definitely be something that I would purchase if I can access to it, as it would be fantastic if paired with some desert.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown color. It's not quite as ultra-opaque as the WnB I had just before this, but it's still dark enough to block out the light. The head is a two finger mocha shade with meh retention. There is a bit of lace left on the glass, at least.

S: Surprisingly nutty in terms of aroma. There also seems to be a combination of roasted and charred malts, as well. I don't really pick up a lot of chocolate on the nose.

T: Wait, did I say that I don't pick up a lot of chocolate aromatically? Because the chocolate is really battering the palate here. It opens the flavor profile like a wrecking ball - almost as if Terrapin melted a 70% dark cocoa bar into the beer before bottling it. The midtaste brings a lot of lactic cream in a balanced manner. It's sweet enough to make this a slow sipper rather than a chugger or even a gulper. At least the lactose never comes across as being acidic, sour, or harsh.

M: The body comes across as thicker and more syrupy than it really is, which I would attribute to the finishing cream flavor. There's some finishing astringency, too, but it's not dry enough finish-wise to balance it out. Carbonation is mediocre.

O: I feel like milk stouts are the Tito Jackson of the stout family - but this one hits my chocolate tooth enough to separate it from the pack. Totally rock solid as long as you don't expect it to be WnB.
