This stout is smooth going down. It has a wonderful cocoa aroma. It may have been my pour, but for a stout, I would have liked a little more top, its dark brown allows you to expect its perfect cocoa flavor.

Shiny black...like thinned motor oil. Thick foam head that dissipates to a skim on top. Some cocoa smell also caramel and toffee. Hints of hops. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with a taste of cocoa and maybe buttery toast.

12 oz can, unclear date code

Pours almost black in color, but some light gets through the edges of the glass. Tan colored head. As expected, big milk chocolate aroma. Similar taste, sweet but not cloying. Long finish. Medium to thick bodied, silky feel.

Nice dark coloring with good initial head. Wonderful chocolate milk aroma. Slightly burnt chocolate taste but mouthfeel is smooth and silky.

They did a good job of making a chocolate milk tasting stout. Big rocky head when first poured. Hint of roast on the nose. Taste is balanced chocolate malt stout with lactose supporting sweetness. Not my favorite beer, but they nailed the style.

4 Hands Brewing Co. "Chocolate Milk Stout"
12 fl. oz. can. The production code on the bottom of the can is illegible but starts with "16 255"
$2 @ Wegmans, King of Prussia, PA

Look: A rough pour brings up a two-finger thick head of dark tan foam atop an opaque brown-black body. Better than average head retention and good lacing.
Smell: Very much like a cup of hot cocoa and a little bit like a glass of "Ovaltine".
Taste: Cocoa, milk chocolate dark chocolate. Mildly roasty and coffee-like. No yeasty fruitiness, no hops. Balanced by a stiff bitterness. Mainly dry finish with bitterness stepping forward and then lingering, somewhat akin to very dark bittersweet chocolate.
Feel: Medium-light in body and crisp.
Overall: It walks the line between becoming a sweet dessert beer and a standard chocolatey stout because of its bitterness level, and to a certain extent its mouthfeel, and I'm personally not sure that I wouldn't prefer it to be one or the other. The chocolate component is quite nice. Worth trying for fans of chocolate beers.
