Growler with ElGaucho (that is a week old but still tasty!) Not too much of an aroma but some nice coco in the aroma. Surprisingly good pour with coffee head on a week old growler. Nice milky chocolate flavor with some coco and some hoppiness on the finish. Not syrupy or heavy which is great!

Draught at the brewery. Listed as 5%. Light smooth cocoa nose. Dark thick brown color. Great sweetish dark roast maltiness / coffee, chocolate, and Ovaltine / tinge of hopping and then the chocolate returns. Thin-medium body. Very pleasant. Like a slightly boozy breakfast drink.

Tap. 10oz at taproom. Black. Strong chocolate and coffee aroma. Roasted coffee flavor from the start, the milky chocolate is underlying and is balanced well. Slightly bitter finish. I don’t love milk stouts, but this is quite good.

Decent chocolate, not overwhelming but clearly the driving force. I felt the aroma was something like I sensed walking outside of Amsterdam coffee houses but my friend (with infinitely more marijuana experience than I) said otherwise. Still, a richly textured beer. (on tap at brewery taproom)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at APN 2013, dark black pour with tan head, aroma was dark chocolate, baker’s chocolate into roast, lactose, slight dark fruits and coffee in there as well, focused on the bitter chocolate. Taste was roast, coffee, and dark fruit into dark cocoa, cocoa powder, finishing fairly bitter, slight milky notes but mainly just added to the body. Tasty.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at brewery. 11/2/13. Aroma is chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla. Appearance is jet black, tan head, very little, almost no lacing. Chocolate is present but not dominant, slight sweetness from lactose. Hits palate nicely, balanced flavors. Velvety without being thick. Overall very nicely done. Top 5 chocolate stout. Now make more of it so I can get a growler.
