Love when beer tastes exactly as advertised, tasted like drinking a Hershey bar, without being overly sweet on the tongue and wasn't to heavy, finished creamy yet also pretty carbonated, drank like a chocolate soda with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Really different and pretty delicious. big fan.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with a smallish fizzy brown head that quickly goes to a thin film.

The aroma is sweet lactic chocolate, some coffee and some bitterness from the roast.

The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate with some roast. It's a little acidic with some vegetal notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK milk stout with a few off notes. Not as sweet as I thought it would be. A bit pricey at $10 per 4 pack.

Bottle into quasi-tulip glass

Appearance: Opaque deep brown, almost black. Unimpressive, lacy, fine head. Head improves as it rests, very resilient

Smell: Milk stout! Sweet, sort of syrupy smell

Taste: Wow. Not complex, but a wallop of light chocolate with pleasant milky vanilla backbone. No chocolate bitterness at all. Is this beer hopped at all?

Mouthfeel: Like very decent chocolate, melting in the mouth. Resilient coating.

Aftertaste: Mild but slightly warming and pleasant.

My take: A sweet and excellent beer. Not overpowering enough to make a bad day great, but the perfect compliment to other quiet joys. This beer makes me happy.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

LOOK: Black, thin but sticky tan lacing

SMELL: Roasty grain, fine chocolate, rose water, mild coffee, prunes, alcohol, light molasses

TASTE: Creamy, silky smooth, thick bodied, milky, subtle roastiness, chocolate throughout, modest hopping, big juicy kiss of alcohol, date sugar, mild spice, dark berries, faint orange peel, sweet creamy finish

This is a big brew, 12oz bottle took a while to conquer though I did not complain once. Seek this one out for something completely different.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Brownish-black with thin tan head and spotty lacing.

Smell: Strong roasted aroma, with definite chocolate, some cream, and touches of coffee and dark fruit.

Taste: Strong milk chocolate taste, semi-sweet, with sharper roasted layers underneath. There are light dark fruit flourishes, and a very minor coffee bite at the end. Some chocolate and cream lingers.

Feel: Medium-full body that is quite creamy and smooth, with low carbonation. Finish is just slightly drying.

Overall: This is exactly as advertised - a chocolate milk stout. Quite enjoyable, but I would like a little more bite and/or dryness.

The stout poured out from the bottle a dark, cloudy brown colour. Smelled of rich chocolate with roasty malts. Tasted almost the same way that it smelled; chocolate, malt, and a bit alcoholic. Left a lingering syrupy mouth-feel to it.

Would I buy this beer again? Probably.
