When you first pour it has a thick milky chocolate colored head which quickly fades. The color of the overall beer is dark chocolate in color.

Smell is great got a roasted chocolate coffee aroma. The coffee smell I got was a med to dark roast, the dark chocolate smell immediately hits you with the coffee following and if u search there’s almost a hint of sweetness like carmel.

The taste was cool definitely is consistent with the dark chocolate smell and coffee. Again the dark chocolate taste is predominantly the taste throughout. The mouth feel was a little thin I was expecting it to be a little more thinker giving the chocolate. Towards the back end I felt the alcohol which wasn’t too bad just a little kick. Overall it’s a pretty good beer. My first from Lancaster

Near black with a reddish hue and chocolate milk colored head. Solid lacing. Roasted malt and a little umami in the nose. These continue up front in the taste up with a definite milky, lactose addition and strong powdered chocolate behind. Sort of Nestle Quik-like. Medium bodied with a moderate creamy slickness to the feel. A bit more roasty than I generally like in a milk stout, but still pretty tasty.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours deep black in color with a thin foamy khaki colored head that quickly reduces to just a ring around the edge

S- big notes of rich milk chocolate, along with caramel/toffee & milky sweetness. A hint of coffee but overall lots of dark milk chocolate

T- sweet dark milk chocolate up front, along with notes of caramel. Mid-palate gives some char and roast, the finish gives a hint of coffee and linger of milk chocolate

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel than finishes a bit flat

O- I prefer this to the regular version as it seems to have more milk chocolate notes

Black in color. Poured with a short, rich, dark mocha foam with good retention. Medium high dark chocolate aromas with a sweet cream and light roasted malt notes. Medium full bodied with a thick, creamy feel through the middle and pleasant boozy warmth near the finish. Medium high, sweet chocolate flavors with medium light roasted malt. Similar to the aroma there’s a sweet cream flavor beneath the chocolateyness. Medium light, lazy hop bitterness through the middle cuts the sweetness just a bit. Bitterness shuts off like a light bulb at the end with a pleasant touch of boozy heat followed by a semi-dry finish and yes, you guessed it a light chocolatey malt aftertaste. Probably the most chocolate character I’ve ever experienced in a beer. But despite the chocolatey sweetness, it’s pretty drinkable. The bitterness could’ve been a little higher and the roasted malts were petty muted, but I guess it is a sweet stout and overall was true to style and pretty good.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of milk chocolate. Taste is chocolate, lactose, slightly sweet, touch of hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very good beer, the best I have had from this brewery.
