Canned. Pours black (yeah, yeah it’s actually a very dark brown, but unless you’re in direct light, it looks black). Light brown head is initially tall and fluffy but falls to a thin film rather quickly. Dark chocolate bars, roasted almonds, and rich cream dominate the aroma. Flavor has quite a bit of roast - coffee, more almonds, pecans, and extremely dark cocoa. Dry finish with a bit more nut. I would have liked a bit more of a creamy body, as that would put this into world-class range. Still, very solid. I feel like a traitor enjoying this St. Louis beer as my beloved Chicago Cubs take on the dreadful St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS. Go Cubbies!

Can thanks to Tim. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is strong milk chocolate and roast. Medium mouth, milk chocolate, roast, light bitter finish, very good.

Bombers. Thick, dark black pour. Cacao and dark choc syrup in the taste, sweet, thin palate. More a dessert beer.

Smell was kind of minerally with some roast. Taste was about the same with some dark malt. Standard stout mouthfeel and carbonation.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a translucent cola with foamy light beige head. Smells good too; dark malt and loads of chocolate. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust, with a bit of roast and toast as well. Mouthfeel is medium light-bodied. Enjoyable, but smells better than it tastes.

Aroma is chocolate milk and a background of dark malts and earth. The flavor is milk chocolate/chocolate milk, dark malts, mild fruit and a mix of acidity and slight heat in the finish.

Love me a chocolate milk stout. This one is nice and milky and coffee flavored. Really soft on the tongue. So delicious. Smells like chocolate and roasted malts. Had out of a bomber at home

Draft at Baileys range. Pours coca cola brown with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Big, huge, massive chocolate notes on the nose. Beautiful! I get a bit of the lactose on the tongue but when the chocolate is this massively good who can complain. Finishes clean. Nice!
