L: It's dark, non-see-through, and has little head retention or lacing when poured down the side of the glass.
S: You can definitely smell the chocolate and typical milk-ish smell that comes with milk stouts. It definitely smells good.
T: Tastes like chocolate, cream, and it is vaguely bitter. Excellent!
F: Medium-bodied, and well balanced. Sweet, but somewhat bitter on the finish, never leaves your mouth feeling dry.

Overall, fantastic stout. I am sensing a lot of this stuff in my future.

4 Hands is one of, if not my absolute favorite brewery in my home state of Missouri. I've yet to have a beer from them that I didn't enjoy and this is no different. I've always been hesitantly curious about chocolate beers, so its only been recently that I've decided to get over that and try them. This was the first one that made me get on board. Its a dark beer (black/dark brown) with a very sweet milky/chocolate scent. To me I pick up a slight hint of coffee as well. Taste is similar as well, with the back end tasting something along the lines of Hershey's chocolate syrup. It is not overly heavy, which is something I enjoy, so this one will be in my lineup during its season with us.
