4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear black pour with a thin light tan head. Nose is big and awesome with creamy milk chocolate tones, with a bodyful roasty depth. Flavor has a big roasty milk chocolate tone, good earthy sweetness, with a earthy creamy finish. Not as custard-y as I hoped, but very delicious and chocolaty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at the brewery. Pours pretty dark with a tight tan head. The lactose comes out in the aroma as a mildly tart thing, which I like. The palate is slick and creamy. There is the milky sweetness along with almost genuine coffee notes. Hints at cacao and soy sauce round out things. I like that they’ve done the chocolate milk thing without making this overly sweet.
