A: Dark black and opaque, modest tan head that sticks around but doesn't leave much lacing.

S: Unsurprisingly, lots and lots of chocolate.

T/M: Big chocolatey flavor, giving way to a bit of a roasted malt aftertaste by the end of each sip, with an occasional touch of coffee shining through. Delicious: loads of sweet chocolate up front with the roasted flavors and coffee imparting a little bitter edge as the followthrough. Very creamy and smooth.

O: A really nice chocolate stout, very rich and tasty, with just enough extra going on to prevent it from being totally straightforward.

Poured from a nitro can beautifully. The pour is so sexy you can't wait to sample it. It's a jet black with a lighter tan head. The nose is all chocolate, the taste is all chocolate. There's not much more to say than that. It's a fairly regular stout with an extra dose of chocolate combined with some nitro, so the pour and mouth feel are rather creamy.

well this was fun. grabbed a 4 pak $9.49 whole foods plymouth meeting made this an enjoyable, affordable treat. that being said, my nitro pint of lancaster milk stout was better, better base stout, and my favorite milk stout.

love the nitro pour, yea thats a 5. darkest brown leaning towards black, big creamy head, nice milk chocolate aroma. try to drink as much of the head as possible, thats the best part of this beer. roasted malts, chocolate, slight hop bitterness in the finish.
i think i drank the first too cold, this definitely got better as it warmed.

would i get this again? depends, may just stick with chocolate milk, much cheaper (hehe) but this was very cool.

This pours a dark black colour with a small tan head.

The smell is roasted malts, bitter chocolate,coffee and even a little smokiness.

The taste is milky,some bitter chocolate and roasted malts.

The mouth feel is milky and creamy with a very low amount of carbonation.

This is a pretty good stout,very smooth and flavourfull.

In a nonic:

A: dark brown colored body and had a three finger tan head that eventually dissipated after about three minutes. There was some speckled foamy lacing around the sides of the glass. No carbonation was seen rising only because the brew was so dark in the body.

S: consistent blend of the milk chocolate with the dark chocolate.

T: centered around the blend of milk and dark chocolate with some coffee slightly in the background. Some light roasty malt flavors and a tad of bread come out but they are really faint.

M: rich, creamy and smooth. The carbonation is well balanced as it soothes across my tongue.

O: this is a superb stout. I'm very impressed especially for the fact that I was looking for a milk/sweet stout for a cupcake recipe that my wife was asking about and wasn't necessarily looking for this. Though I was looking for something else and decided to go with this, I am really looking forward to tasting those cupcakes soon. This is a top of the notch brew I can't wait to have again.
