This one didnít stand out as having any chocolate milk notes for me. I nursed the pint for an hour. Color is ink black. Pour is thick. Little head. Nose is not too strong. Look, it was a good experience, but not up there like ST Choklat. I feel the expectation of a real presence of that good olí milk chocalte carton was missing.

Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Pours a rich, dark brown, little to no head. Aroma lots of cocoa, Hersheyís baking chocolate. Body lithe, slippery, roasty, slight boozy bite. Overall, really well-balanced, with a lingering roasty bitterness.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle and served in snifter: Pours a deep colour, near opaque with a fading head (likely cocoa oils causing that), zero head retention or lace. A bit brash with heavy roast and char with dark chocolate overtones. Some herbal and piney hop notes in addition to the faint prune, fig, and leathery notes. Still the body seems a tad too thin for the flavor profile, not overly complex despite what wrote before. Drinkable

ellolovey (453) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bomber. Pours a thick black with a frothy mocha colored head. Aroma is so sweet. Loads of cocoa, caramel, and roasted malts. Sweet chocolatey goodness wraps around the palate. Itís so thick and creamy. Sweetness is balanced out by a nice butter tingle on the finish. Pretty enjoyable. ABV is hidden very well.

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle purchased at Sicilianoís in Grand Rapids. Pitch black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma of chocolate, bitter roast and creamy malt. Malty flavor with sweet chocolate before a dense, roasty finish.

Draft at crunchy's. Dark with a dark head. Dark chocolate and boozy. Really smooth.

JerseyHophead (21) - California, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a thick, deep brown almost black with minimal head retention. Nose is strongly of cocoa and a bit smokey. Starts with a strong punch of pure chocolate. Itís a bit bitter on the tongue but it finishes with the sweetness more typical of milk stouts. One of the better chocolate stouts Iíve had. Pretty filling as well. Final note: I was surprised at the alc content because itís masked fairly well.

aracauna (3055) - Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2014
This is a very well done beer. Big without being harsh. Roasty without being ashy. Rich without being cloying. Definitely a hearty sweet beer, loads of chocolate, but not overdone.

fishonmyplane (424) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2014
Very drinkable for the ABV. Plenty of chocolate, with easy-drinking lactose flavors as well. Iím a fan, but it isnít the most complex, and the finish is a bit short for an imperial stout.

AWISLguy (1242) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bomber from the Art of Beer. Pours a very dark brown with a brown head leaving nice streaks of lace. Aroma has sweet chocolate, heavy roast, caramel, some lactose and faint smoke. Taste is of sweet caramel, milk chocolate, licorice, some roasty espresso and sugar. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes sweet and somewhat bitter. Long and lactose-y. If they were trying for "imperial chocolate milk stout", as stated, they hit it. Lotta flavor and depth, but sweet; almost an imperial porter, but even sweet for that. Eyed this for a while; shame that it seems to have broken down a bit, or just the style aimed for is too much.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2014
Strong aroma with coffee and alcohol. This matches the flavor, which has coffee, dark chocolate, and whiskey. The aftertaste is surprisingly short. Medium-heavy body.
