COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by slackers, sweaters, eccentric friends and exotic drinks. This decadent chocolate milk stout has been a year in the making and has been piloted and tested at the brewery countless times to ensure its quality. The final masterpiece pours midnight black and is capped with a tan pillowy head. Eight different malts and whole vanilla beans create flavors of chocolate and espresso, offering a perfect way to mellow out after a rough set on the lanes.

Tasted from growler at the late night tasting after the Grand Tasting at RBWG Asheville. Pours opaque dark brown with an average tan head that leaves average lace. The nose is some dark roasted coffee, and creamy dark chocolate. The flavor is a bit more vanilla, full of roasted coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. The body is full with average carbonation and a long vanilla and dry bitter finish.

Growler shared during RBWG 2014 Asheville - Late Nite session. Cheers! Pours clear, rich brown with a creamy tan head. Great balance to this one. Nice rounded chocolate character, some earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dry chocolate in the finish, with moderate earth and roast. Really solid overall.

tia (1737) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Tap @ brewery. Dark brown with tan head and decent lacing. Smells very sweet and a little chocolaty with some dry roast. Flavor is a little funky- set them a touch sour then roasty. A tad disjointed but not unpleasant.
