Dark reddish-black pour with a brown head. Aroma is cocoa, lactose and chocolate. Taste is the sweetness of lactose bombarded by cocoa and chocolate. Roasted malt in the background. Super tasty. Dry finish. OK lacing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown with a medium, smooth, darker tan head. A sweet smelling aroma does give a clear impression of chocolate milk. Additionally, there is cocoa and lighter vanilla. The taste is very sweet, although not to much as to render this undrinkable. Its fairly straight forward, a big dose of chocolate and cocoa, some roasted malts that are more mild, and hints of earthiness. There is a short aftertaste of cocoa and chocolate. Its light in body, with a thin, very creamy texture, and is absent in carbonation. This is good, but a little to sweet for my taste.

Dark color pour from 12 oz can. Hoppy aroma paired with malt, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is same. Silky smooth and well balanced. Just a bit one dimensionally sweet. Not a filling stout which makes it easier to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can - Pours cola with a foamy light tan head. Nose is chocolate, a bit nutty, with cocoa, a touch of coffee, and rich dark malt. Taste is wave after wave of chocolate, mellow, dry, and nutty, with a bit of coffee in the finish. Milky and sweet--just decadent. Thin and watery with mellow carbonation. A bit gritty. Really nice stuff.

Smooth, yet delicious chocolatey and peanut butter flavor. Easy to drink and exceptionally flavorful on the palette. Would be best served as a dessert beverage
