Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet chocolate upfront, lighter roasted malts, and moderate sweetness in the finish. Not overdone. The end.

Jesterdeal (1640) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle shared at the 11k/7k/5k. Kind of a no surprises beer. Aroma is chocolate milk and roasted malt. Pours black with a white medium thick head. Taste is cocoa, milk chocolate, slight espresso and a light malty finish. Marshmallowy mouthfeel and not overwhelmingly sweet.

RABinVA (1009) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Took about 30 minutes to get half a glass to pour that wasn’t just straight foam. Eventually settled to a watery dark brown. Aroma and taste? Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. Not chocolate milk. Not milk chocolate. Bittersweet baking chocolate. No balance. Like chewing a handful of chocolate chips.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
22 oz. bottle. It pours a very dark brown color with a nice tan head. The aroma is intensely chocolaty with lactose and hints of vanilla. Roasted malt is fairly strong in the background. Smells dessert-like and delicious. The flavor is creamy and chocolaty with lots of strong, dirty roasted malt and hints of menthol, floral hops. Mild acidity and more chocolate and ashy roast in the finish. I love this beer since it delivers on everything it advertises from the label to the name… no off flavors and supremely satisfying.

This one actually smells like milk chocolate, with lactose sweetness and malt. Pours dark brown with a giant tan head that leaves lacing and recedes to huge bubbles. Taste is pretty weak at first, with a surge of chocolate and malt, then giving way to a watery finish. Think yoo-hoo. Palate is virtually non-existent. I was disappointed with this one. I really wanted to like it because I’m from STL and always trying to support our microbreweries.

HuskerTan (343) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 8, 2014
(Thanks Peter "russellcrow") Bottle. A- Coffee, cocoa, tobacco, doughy, roasty. A- Black color, black liquid, tan head. T- Cocoa, bitter chocolate, malty, coffee, mocha. P- Full body, thin texture, medium carbonation, dry finish. O- This beer was a pain in the ass. So much head that I poured nothing but head, continually for almost an hour before I managed to get the whole beer into the glass. It’s a solid sweet stout with more coffee than chocolate flavor in my opinion, but it’s not worth the time it takes to pour. Something had to be up with this bottle.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle at Clocks. Pours a deep brown body with thick brown head. Aroma is full roast and sweet chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sugary lactose, sweet chocolate and light roast.

jtclockwork (7107) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle at 7K/5K. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of chocoalte, Baker’s chocolate, toasted black malt and cocoa nib. Lighter medium body.

vtafro (2455) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with tan head. Sweet chocolate and lactose. Chocolate and sweet vanilla flavors. Taste almost dead on for chocolate milk.

boxofrane (1872) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2014
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours pitch black with minimal head. The aroma is primarily milk chocolate with limited complexity. The taste is sweet chocolate, some lactic note.
