A - nice dark brown black opaque beer with a mocha head that sticks and leaves nice lacing
S - chocolate, coffee, creamy goodness, slight cherry/dark fruit
T - chocate, cream, coffee, vanilla, dark fruits, mild roasty malts, mild burnt marshmallow
M - pretty thick mouthfeel, alcohol covered, aftertaste is chocolate, roasted malts
O - would be better if it was a higher abv, I can tell spiteful has talen, this beer seems like it's just begging to be an imperial chocolate milk stout

poured out thick and dark with a very small rim

hints of chocolate and a touch of anise

smooth entrance on the tongue ,good hints of chocolate, not bitter, and some licorice notes

medium mouth feel with no lingering aftertaste

I thought this spiteful offering was decent, for me tho, perhaps a bit more sweetness .for the price of 9 bucks for 22oz., I would sample again.

The brew is black with a mocha head. The head is small and quickly disappears. Nothing above average here.

The nose is very inviting and makes me hungry. The smell is dominated by what can only be described as rich chocolate milk. The aroma is unmistakeably chocolate, however there's something about the aroma that makes me think of chocolate milk. I suppose it's the lacto, but I cannot say for certain. Beyond the chocolate are hints of roasted grains.

The flavor is a little more complex than the nose. I think there is more balance between the chocolate and roast flavors.

The feel is a solid medium. There's lots of creaminess as well which coats the mouth nicely. The coating lets you continue to enjoy the flavors. The finish is dry.

Overall this is a very delicious and rich chocolate milk stout. The flavor deserves the most praise, however it's close to being too much. In other words, if the flavors were turned up a couple notches I would consider this brew to be cloying. This stout has Spiteful's trademark dryness and roast that we've enjoyed in past brews.

This would be much better if it didn't taste like raspberry. It's smooth...creamy..roasty...light buy that fruit flavor is overwhelming. Overall a nice milk stout...almost perfect for a holiday desert.
