Had this on tap at McLaddens in Northampton. The beer was thick: dark brown-black appearance with a beautiful, light brown, creamy head. Aromas had a burnt, milk chocolate aroma that was much more vocal with the taste. The beer was very balanced with its flavors with nothing too overpowering: creamy milk and cocoa. Mouthfeel helped this beer a lot by making the beer super dense and creamy; an excellent dessert beer. Overall, a great beer to end your night with.

The look is pitch black with foamy brown head that quickly died away. Only a tiny ring remains, and a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is milk chocolate, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, caramel, burnt toast, and vanilla.
On the palate is lots of milk chocolate, dark chocolate--a good balance of sweet and bitter chocolate. Cocoa powder and chocolate syrup. Lots of vanilla and toast.
Medium feel, moderately carbonated, slick and oily. Leans a little sweet but is actually quite balanced.

This is an interesting offering from singlecut. It has the bold chocolate flavor of a high-abv chocolate stout but without the thick syrupy body I associate with that style. The beer is definitely creamy but it doesn't have the corresponding viscosity I'd expect. I actually think that makes this stout more approachable. It's almost like a sessionable stout.

Served in a goblet from the bottle.

Appearance: Thin brown to black body with medium bubbles creating a tan head which initial rose just under one finger's length. Zero lacing on the glass.

Smell: Sweet chocolate cake with nice light but if caramel scent.

Taste: Sweet mocha and light coffee with a light hint of vanilla. Not overly sweet which is good but wouldn't pair it with a meal, more like the dessert.

Mouth: not overly sticky, malty to a touch and has a toasted bread finish.

Overall: Nice pick up, something different considering these milk sweet stouts aren't my first choice of the night.

A bit of a disappointment from this excellent brewer. Thin body, good chocolate aroma, chocolate-cocoa taste, too much bitterness, too carbonated for the style. I like a smoother, richer body with the style.
Not balanced. The recipe needs extreme tweaking.
