Three strata of raw cacao nibs, cacao powder, and chocolate malt layer a triple doozie of chocolate in this unique Milk Stout. Earthy espresso notes and creamy chocolate dominate this ruby-lit, burnt umber bodied beer simmering with a welcoming 10% ABV of bittersweet warmth.

Pours dark ruby red/brown with no head. Scent is huge, but not pleasant; overwhelming chocolate milk mix aroma that you can smell a mile away, with some overripe dark fruit in there. Taste is much better, with some dark chocolate bitterness, although the chocolate milk mix note is still there. Some toasty malts, cherry, currant as well. Booze is warming but well hidden in the taste. Palate is ok but should be creamier. Not without its positive attributes, but a huge disappointment overall.

OminouSC2 (451) - SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2016
In sweden we have a chocolate milk drink called "Pucko". This is the beer equivalent of that. Dark brown. Aromas are chocolate, cacao, lactose, chocolate bar, milk chocolate and chocolate milk. Taste is like chocolate milk, lot of chocolate, cacao, lactose and some alcohol in the background. Finish is bitter-sweet chocolate. Artificial taste. Not the most balanced beer, but a really fun one.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Dark brown, brief head. Concentrated aroma of plum brandy and milk chocolate. Very sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Milk chocolate with extra sugar, cherries, vanilla and cocoa powder. Candyish and superficial.
