No date that I can find. Quite fresh given that this wasn't even entered into BA yet. Maybe two weeks old.

A: Pours pitch black with a big frothy medium brown head. Head fades pretty quickly, leaving zero lacing behind. Almost zero head retention too, can't stir up anything.

S: Big time milk chocolate, cream and cocoa powder. Surprisingly decent coffee bean too. Kinda smells like chocolate covered coffee beans if I'm honest.

T: Loaded with chocolate. It's an interesting mix. There is bitter cocoa powder and there's a sweeter milk chocolate component as well. No real sign of coffee here as mentioned in the aroma, maybe I was mistaking the bitter chocolate element as coffee. Earthy bitter cocoa in the finish. Lingering chocolate (duh) in the aftertaste.

M: Surprisingly not as heavy as you'd expect for a 10% ABV brew. Low carbonation too. Fairly creamy.

O: Well, the label describes this as an imperial chocolate milk stout. That's exactly what it is. Pretty one-note, lots of chocolate flavors from start to finish. That doesn't make it bad, in fact it's quite enjoyable. It reminds me a lot of Southern Tier Choklat. Pure chocolate with lots of sweetness. This isn't QUITE so sweet, it actually has a little bitter cocoa aspect but it's close. At the same time, it just doesn't hold up quite the same. Maybe not quite as rich? Mouthfeel seems a little thin compared too. I didn't mean for this to be a comparison element, but if you've ever had Choklat you will understand what I mean.
