It's a milk chocolate shake in a beer. Nuff said

I'm already filled with dessert, but just for the heck of it, let's cap it off with this dessert like beverage. Onto the beer:

Ink black colored and topped with an espresso tanned head with solid retention on top. I smell some fruity booze here, some cocoa, and vague fruity esters. It certainly has that Imperial Stout strength to it.

Imperial Stout Meats milk chocolate
The beer itself is quite smooth in texture with a light buzz of booze. Sweet milk chocolate and cherries are all wrapped up in a very smooth liquid that's full-bodied.

I think I've had enough dessert for tonight. Until next time...

Charcoal black with just a finger of clingy tan in spite of vigorous pour. 3.75
Tin, meat crust, and ash - no chocolate. 3.75
Licorice root, cocoa nibs, some roasty sweetness, purple plums, slight Maltesers and a mildly, finish. Thickens up with molasses notes as it goes. 3.75
Creamy, round, past medium, chewy. 4

There’s purists who say that milk chocolate isn’t much chocolate at all, and that’s the problem here. Roasty dark notes can’t compete (no coffee notes!) with the abundance of malts (it is 8.5%, after all) that make this creamy, sure, but also a bit too sticky and hard to work through. That might not matter if there was euphoric truffle and cocoa powder notes (Choklat, Young’s Double) but… milk chocolate. 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Black with a nice brown head and good lacing. A pleasant fragrant smell of chocolate and maybe a bit of banana. The feel is very smooth and creamy. The taste is nice and sweet and chocolatey. A nice beer!

Pours a very nice black color, with some pretty nice carbonation, which leaves a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger light tan head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with chocolate/toffee notes, slight vanilla, slight roastyness. The taste is malty, very nice sweetness, chocolate/toffee. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, for being available in sixers, and at this ABV, this is a very nice Milk Stout.

Poured dark and opaque. Got pretty much no head. Smell was a mixture of chocolate and sweetness. Taste was what you'd expect nice and chocolately, sweet but not overly so, didn't get any bitter chocolate flavor. Beer was mildly carbonated and nice and smooth. supremely drinkable, it hides the ABV very very well. Overall a really good chocolate milk stout - definitely one of the better ones out there.

Appearance - dark in color, nice retention along the glass. Smell - chocolate and bitter chocolate. Taste - follows the nose but nice and sweet, without being overly much so. Overall - very solid beer. Would def get again. Girlfriend cringed and said it was awful. Funny, she likes DIPA but not stouts... women.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: The liquid settles in with a translucent coffee color and the rocky beige head leaves a lot of foam sticking to the side of the glass

Smell: Chocolate milk, lactose and a hint of vanilla

Taste: Milk chocolate from start to finish, with just a slight grainy tinge developing in the middle

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Every now and again I enjoy a milk stout; it's not something I like to drink frequently but this one is one of the better ones I have encountered; hides the ABV well

Pours deep brown/black with minimal head that goes away quickly. Mouthfeel is on the heavier side and the beer coats the glass as you drink. Smells of coffe chocolate and roasted malts. Tastes mainly of coffee to me with a roasty chocolate aftertaste. Very smooth with minimal sharp edges.

This beer poured a dark black color with a nice dark tan head into my snifter glass. The gives way to the sweetness of this beer with some nice chocolate overtones along with richness from the sugar. The taste is not overly sweet to me a nice blend of chocolate and other flavors in this beer. The mouth feel is smooth. A really nice take on a chocolate milk stout and would like to enjoy this again
