3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 1st rating 12/13/2013: Definitely not my favorite milk stout, but a good beer just because it IS a chocolate milk stout nonetheless! Lots of carbonation- wish it was smoother and more like real chocolate milk in the mouthfeel. Not a full enough body to call it a stout...just a porter here.
2nd rating 10/20/2014: I agree with my previous rating that this is more of porter and not quite a stout. Slightly bitter/sour but overall great flavors of deep cocoa. Good job not letting coffee override this one as it tends to do in so many dark stouts/porters.

22 oz bottle shared by phaleslu (06/2013). Pours a cola brown color with a large fluffy beige head. The aroma and flavor have moderate roasted malt, big milk chocolate, lactose, brown sugar with light bitterness to the finish. Hints of vanilla; tasty, but lighter bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar. Brownish-black pour with a medium creamy beige head that diminishes quickly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of milk chocolate, sweet malt and a bit of brown sugar. The finish is sweet with a lingering cocoa aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours brown black with khaki suds. Nice chocolatey roasted aroma. Bitter roasted malt flavor with not as much chocolate coming thru but a nice smooth creamy palate. There is a solid lactose feel but not quite enough sweetness to match the heavy roast. Lingering bitter near burnt malt with some coffeeish tones and lactose creaminess. Decent but I would like to try it on nitro.

The nose is crazy coffee. Coffee, coffee and more coffee. Velvety smooth palate and tastes like a chocolate covered espresso bean

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was from oa 22 oz bottle courtesy of my St. Louis area trading partner Strykzone. Poured a dark brown, with and huge tan head and good lacing. The nose if roasted malts but mostly it is chocolate. The body is medium and the mouthfeel is carbonated and smooth. Flavor is very rich in the chocolate. The finish shows some roasted malt but the chocolate continues to dominate. Very well done and great drinking.

22oz bottle, shared by phaleslu. Dark brown color, clear still. Good thin light brown head. Some loose bits of lace, cocoa nibs in the nose, some bitter hops. Nice sweet taste, light bitter. Good chocolate milk to the flavor. Easy to drink, just the right amount of sweet. Medium body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Light chewiness. Nice, kind of refreshing, easy drinking chocolate milk stout.
