Bottle from Kensington Liquors from my Hopslam run. Very dark brown pour, with a brown head. Aroma has thickly layered bakers chocolate, caramel and molasses. Later some dark fruits showed through. Taste is of sweet caramel, bittersweet chocolate, some roast, some molasses and some creme de cacao. Medium to full bodied and not very smooth, with some alcohol. Finishes mostly sweet, but with a solid bitter kick fighting to be noticed - a nice balance for a "sweet stout". Not too smooth, the blend could have perhaps turned out better. 13.6

12 oz bottle pours black, big fat frothy brown head. This thing smelled and tasted like a milk chocolate drink from my youth called Kayo. It brought back memories, and I’m probably dating myself. Let me just say this, I enjoyed this for what it was, and I feel my rating was accurate, but as a flashback, this is a 5.0, without a doubt. I love it.

Burnt brown appearance with light spitty, spotty light lace. Aroma of vanilla, nutty like, chocolate, minerally light roast, slight fruit maybe. Taste is rich smooth slick, with refined caramel malts/roast malts, hint of booze but not much, chocolate flavor more noticeable in finish, light roast/ashyness. Has some berry like flavor as I get a lot in dark beer, particularly black berry boysen berry or blueberry. Has some dryness in finish. Overall pretty good a bit refined and mildy complex but somewhat generic at the same time almost but maybe not. Ive had a lot of bad experiences with Breckenridge but this one did pretty well. They did well with the chocolate character in this.

Bottle. Cola brown. Roasted fudge aroma. The taste follows with a pillowy marshmallow finish. Creamy feel with soft light carb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle: Pours dark, almost black. Medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla. Taste is bitter with strong chocolate and a vanilla finish. Good malt backbone. Smooth, creamy, just a tad thin.

JHeath99 (1413) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Tap. Pours a dark cola brown with a thin spotty layer of tan head. Was interesting due to the creamy sweetness intermingling with the higher abv. Aroma and taste of milk chocolate, roasted malts, and some hints of vanilla.
