Pretty thin in the palate - not as creamy as I expected. Nice milk chocolate flavor with moderate sweetness. Light bitterness from the roasted malt, providing pretty good balance. Not a whole lot of complexity. An easy-drinking stout.

Great beer! Sweet but not to the point where itís weird, a lot of deep malt character. Very drinkable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashiís. Thanks troubles. Clear and very dark brown. Chocolate milk with some alcohol in the nose, sweet, chocolatey taste with hints of alcohol. Smooth, medium body, hot chocolate thatís made with water finish. Nice.

Black with a red tinge along the edges; Filmy head with good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, lactose, roasted barley, and some mild coffee ground notes. Flavor is is heavy on the chocolate and lactose with some notes of whipped cream, sugar and roasted barley and malts. Sweet and roasty aftertaste. Light body and light carbonation; Very smooth texture. I enjoyed this quite a bit!

BadAprilia1000 (260) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a very dark red turning to brown with a decent chocolate cream colored head. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, roasty malts, espresso, slight smoke. Taste is cocoa, roasty marshmellow, smokey, malt, and coffee grinds. Texture is very smooth and easily drinkable. Overall a very pleasant surprise, one I would get a six pack of if I can find it again.

jahshuwuh (376) - USA - JAN 16, 2014
A fairly dark black/brown color with some off white head that tapers off quickly. Smells of grape, rye, coffee, musty, malty, roasty. Tastes range from malty, roasted hop bitter, coffee, salty, caramel, low carbonation, finishes with just a slight roasted bitter, coffee. A little tiny hint of sour grape towards the end, but I may be crazy. Does have a creaminess to the mouthfeel. Flavors are fairly tame overall nothing jumps out too much, but that's not bad, it's kept pretty balanced. The roasted tones are nice and are what dominate overall. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
