Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Thin looking pour with fluffy khaki head.
Nose is some nestle crunch milk chocolate, a hint of coffee and some roasted malt.
Taste is more robust malt foward, and that milk chocolate in the nose turns into baker chocolate.
Mouthfeel is medium carbonated and quite thin bodied.

Dark and a bit thin looking. Resembles Coke. Minimal head. Strong chocolate nose with a little bit of coffee. Fairly mild coffee flavor with definite sweetness. That sweetness is just kind of sugary and hollow, though. Bit of a coffee finish.

Very sweet, and a Great dessert beer. Strong chocolate smell and taste. Pitch black with nice light lacing on the glass.

This one was really tasty. As expected the mouthfeel was pretty thin, but the flavor was on point. It really did have a nice chocolate milk taste to it with a nice semi bitter finish.

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

Pours a deep brown to black with a nice light brown head. The nose is all chocolate; both roasted and sweet. The taste yields, you guessed it - chocolate. There's a good sweetness to it, but there are also notes of roasted malts and touches of caramel. The finish has a touch of lactose noticeable along with the sweet chocolate. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy and it goes down nicely. Overall, it's a good sweet stout but it's slightly too one dimensional for me. Still, it's enjoyable and a good desert beer.
