A: Black body with 3 finger frothy foam. Lots and lots of lacing.

S: Not much smell... but some chocolate, some malt noted.... and maybe oats.

T: Yum. I like it. It's definitely not a huge beer by any means, but it kind of tastes like an Irish Stout with chocolate flavour.

M: Thin and good amount of carbonation. I thought it would be creamier.

O: Very good beer that is readily available near me. I had this several times, but finally get to review it.

Appearance is a dark brown to black color reminiscent of bittersweet chocolate. There was at least a finger of frothy tan head that dissipated quicker than expected. However, enough foam remained to make healthy rings of lace on the glass as I enjoyed this offering. Mild roast in the nose. Smooth and creamy with definite hints of chocolate. Most offerings that promise chocolate fall flat - this one delivers!

The combination of roasted malt, modest sweetness and a touch of alcohol burn on the finish make for a fairly easy drinking 6.5% offering.

nitro-can served into a pint glass

It looks perfect. Pitch-black. Dense, khaki head that never ever goes away ever. Nitro beers always look tremendous. This is no exception.

This beer doesn't really give off much when it comes to aroma. Cocoa bean, watery roasted malt. Maybe some lactose sugar. Maybe the canned version does something to tighten the nose? It's fine, but not expressive.

The taste is better. Lots of milk chocolate, a small bit of watered-down Maxwell House, a sort of dairy note, and sugar sweetness. Again, not complex. But this beer isn't going for complexity.

The mouthfeel, given what this beer wants to do, is also perfect. It's smooth as...nah, it's not smooth. It's smoove. Smoove. And quite full-bodied for a milk stout. So smoove.

Overall, this is a tasty little milk stout. "Double Chocolate" suggest something bigger/more flavorful than this beer actually is, but you won't regret buying this.
