3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle from Hyde Park Wine and Spirits. The appearance is a deep brown-black with no head. The flavors and aromas are similar with a roasted malt, milk chocolate, lactose sugar, and vanilla. The mouth is a touch chalky. Could use more creaminess for the name but not bad.

Pours dark with a tan head. Toasty cocoa aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste the chocolate, turns a bit bittersweet on the swallow, and lingers into the aftertaste, very nice. Does have a bit of a creamy feel to it. One of the better chocolate stouts I have tried. Will have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
