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.

12 oz bottle, no date

Black, tan colored head. Huge fudgey aroma. Tastes like chocolate milk - but not too sweet or cloying. Thicker bodied. Great dessert beer.

20 oz stout glass.
Pours almost black..fairly thick, with little lacing or head.
Smells of rich sweet chocolate, and a dash of malts. Tastes of rich, sweet and savory chocolate(s), with a mild hint of vanilla. Very smooth, with a slight bitterness, that doesn't take away from the malted backbone.
Overall, a good stout that delivers on its description.

Very generic & pedestrian sweet stout, but it doesn't do anything bad. Expected light roasted malt flavor, no real chocolate beyond a bit on the nose, maybe a tad watery

Poured into a custom pint glass: color is black, solid, dense looking, head is tan with fine bubbles; head presents at least 1/2 inch thick, lingers well and remains a solid top with some bubbly lacing on the glass.

Smell is moderately strong cocoa, chocolate, milky/creamy like sweetness.

Flavor is similiar to the aroma with strong cocoa/chocolate flavor, light malt, hints of lactose and cream, subtle hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is moderate with decent carbonation and strong lingering cocoa/lactose sweetness.

Overall, a good beer with great presentation but a bit strong for me personally on the sweetness.
