this actually tastes like chocolate milk, like, really chocolatey milk, the kind you make when you are a kid and mom says you can make your own, so you drain half the bottle of hersheys syrup into the glass and splash just a little milk over it, half stir it, and basically drink chocolate. the ratio is whack, but it sure is delicious. this reminds me of that. there is a ton of milk chocolate in the aroma and flavor here, and i am surprised to read its made with cocoa nibs, as i usually associate those with a more earthy, bitter, roasty dark chocolate complexion, its usually not this desserty, but there must be some lactose or even vanilla in here sweetening it up. the base stout is really good too though, frothy and thick and textured right to accommodate all this chocolate. there is a creaminess about it, a definite melted chocolate character, and a finishing sweetness thats prominent but not too much that i dont want to crack another can as soon as i drain the first one. it seems like a lot of breweries are trying this sort of thing now, but sometimes less is more, and a simple and chocolate heavy approach is all you really need to succeed. this is at the head of its class, my favorite chocolate stout i have had in awhile, and oddly drinkable for what it is. im sad when my glass is empty. these guys are killing it right now, especially with the dark stuff!
