Notes / Commercial Description:
Made with TCHO Ghanaian Roasted Cacao Nibs. This chocolate milk stout is full-bodied and creamy, with sumptuous chocolate notes and a delicate roasted character. Black Hand pours a rich dark brown with a milky coffee-colored head. Bittersweet chocolate and roast envelopes the nose, carried by roasted cacao nibs and chocolate malts. The aroma blends effortlessly with soft flavors of dry chocolate and darkly roasted malts. The addition of milk sugar provides a silky smooth body, with a subtle natural sweetness of cream.

My favorite brewery, I love all their beers. This beer was drinkable but I would have to say this was the worst one I've tried from Speakeasy. If you can find it, the Scarface Imperial Stout and Payback Porter from Speakeasy are way better. not a bad beer though, just compared to their other beers I didn't care for this one too much.
