Just yes. All of the flavor: luscious chocolate is the headliner. Sweet milk chocolate and coffee linger on the tongue. Appearance and aroma on point

22oz. bomber poured into 4 Hands mason jar.

Look: Dark, dark chocolate in color. Pour brings out a light brown head that settles into slight froth.
Smell: Slight roast; mostly chocolate.
Taste: A little milk sugar, mostly roasted cacao and dark malts.
Mouthfeel: Creamy. Carbonation that lingers on the tongue.
Overall: A delicious chocolate milk stout; on it's own or with cake, ice cream or other rich dessert. One of my favorites in this style. 4 Hands really nailed this!!!

Had this one on tap. Enjoyed it a lot. Might not be the best stout I've ever had, but I was tempted to give it 5's cuz it lived up to the description perfectly. Black body with creamy brown head. smell is chocolate milk...not cocoa or roasted malt or dark chocolate, but really I immediately thought of chocolate milk. Was worried the taste was going to be artificial, but it too was excellent... chocolate milk. Extremely balanced taste where I never forgot I was drinKing a good stout. It's fair to say there were light coffee notes, hints of roasted malt, and more. In the end though, it was chocolate milk. The sweetness was there but not overpowering. The taste wasn't fake, Just very nicely balanced. Figured it would fail in the feel and be either tOo thin or too syrupy. Nope, it is super creamy and, well... like chocolate milk. Overall great experience, and I'll admit I ordered a second.

Gonna pick up some cans and see if they deliver the same. Like others, I stayed away for a while because i figured this was a gimmick beer. Now I can't wait to try Four Hands Peanut Butter Stout.
