look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Look: Dark brown, with an ample beige head.

Smell: Pure sweetened chocolate and or chocolate syrup. (Very neat!)

Taste: The nose never quite materializes in the mouth, with only a whisper
at best of chocolate. Really no sweetness to speak off and the beer actually
transitions fairly quickly to a somewhat smoky and tart finish.

Feel: A bit light for a stout.

Overall: Meh...doesn't deliver on the chocolate promise in the nose,
with respect to a more dessert-like sweet/syrupy beer. Although
the nose was actually a very neat experience in itself, wouldn't
recommend or revisit.

Pours dark brown, almost black, with two fingers of light brown head.

The nose is fantastic on this one. Milk chocolate and a touch of coffee.

I'm surprised this only has an 88 on here. It maybe lacks the deep roasty notes an imperial stout purist looks for, but it's a great representation of milk chocolate in a beer. Creamy and light, with almost no detectable alcohol. Maybe my favorite stout to date. The lactose does wonders here. Very soft and drinkable with just a kiss of coffee and hops. An accessible, marvelous stout. Maybe not as "big" as something like Founders Breakfast Stout, but I frankly appreciate the more milky sweetness. A great brew!

Sampling a cellar temp growler poured into a ssnifter. the beer is a gift from my brother Brian. Thanks man!
The beer pours a dark chocolate brown color with frothy minimal tan head even with an aggressive pour.
The aroma is sweet chocolate milk and a bit of roasted malt with brown sugar mixed in as well for a fairly sweet overall nose.
The first sip reveals a silky smooth texture and average body with minimal and spacious carbonation. expected a little bigger body for a double chocolate stout, but otherwise this is good so far.
The flavor is as the nose advertises with sweet chocolate malt and a bit of chocolate milk ad brown sugar. Not much to speak of for hops or ABV, but a bit of roasted malt notes do shine through. This is a malty beer all around and fairly sweet to boot. Give it a shot if you like sweet malty beers.

Stumbled upon this at my Local House of 1,000 beers now in 12 oz bottles it was only 3 bucks for the single!

A - So far so awesome a deep blackness that is stout glory with a full inch of deep mocha tinted head that takes a while to dissipate.
S - The cocoa nibs add a deep dimension to this milk stout giving it more of a Hershey chocolate syrup like of vibe. Beneath is the typical lactic sugars and sweetness one would expect in a milk stout.
T - Not as sweet as one would expect in the name its mostly just a good bit of lactic milk and some semi dry cocoa nibs. Slightly dry roasts and hops in the finish but it is smooth.
M - Not as creamy as I expected and in a way rather thin bodied but its good like an alcoholic cocoa mix!

Overall this beer is great and not that sweet if that's your thing! Worth trying if you like the style!

22oz bottle, no date. Pours nearly black with a medium sized light brown head. Smells of rich cocoa and roasted malt. Taste follows very closely with dark chocolate, lactose, and malt. It has good amount of sweetness. Medium flavor intensity. Average carbonation and slightly below average body. Although it's a bit one-dimensional, it's a great example of a Milk Stout.

Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and a big two-finger head. The nose has some chocolate essence to it.

The flavor profile is pretty flat - not much chocolate and no roast whatsoever.

The body is light for the style. In fact, this barely qualifies as a double-anything with such a low ABV and thin body.
