Served in a nonic pint glass.

Taking in some fireworks on my buddy's boat with a nice beer in hand. Good times on the Fourth. This stuff pours a deep, dark black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, chocolate syrup, and a hint of sweet coffee, similar to Kahlua. The taste brings in more of the same, with the chocolate really taking center stage, as one would expect. The body is a hefty-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, a pretty damn tasty beer, one that went rather well with the fireworks and the nautical activities. Good times.

bomber batch 32 into a tulip.

pours a dark black with nice inch thick beige head. attractive pour. smell is very chocolately and malty, just as promised. the taste is extremely chocolatey at first but finishes with a nice lasting bitterness. I dig it a ton. medium bodied, mild carbonation.

overall very impressive. really like this.

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.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My first beer from Spiteful Brewing, out of Chicago. These guys have been creating a buzz and have been putting out lots of new beers at my local beer store. Awesome label art; I can't wait to try it.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a slick solid opaque black colored body with a finger and a half of luscious dark chocolate mocha head. Head recedes to a fat dark mocha ring. Looks truly mouthwatering.

S - Smell is of milk chocolate, some cold coffee, used coffee grounds, cream, hint of hops, and a strong powdery lactose / milk smell. As it warms, I get a cherry / strawberry jam aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose: some bitter dark chocolate / coffee bean roast, cocoa, cream, and some crisp bitter dark fruit tartness on the finish.

M - Feel is powdery, sticky, and creamy. Dry cocoa and coffee bean roast on the finish. Medium-bodied with maybe just a tad too much carbonation, but otherwise, delicious.

Overall, an awesome chocolate milk stout. Definitely rivals some of the bigger and better know stouts I've had from other breweries. Three Floyds Moloko comes to mind as a comparison, but I couldn't say if it's better or not. Either way, this is a delicious first beer from Spiteful Brewing, and I look forward to trying the rest.

Spiteful Brewing Mrs. O'Leary's Chocolate Milk Stout ---4/5.
