Tessic (842) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 21, 2013
This chocolate stout poured a deep black colour with a big, tan coloured, creamy head. Scents include chocolate to the 9th degree, cherries and cream. First sip was a shitload of cocoa flavor with additional flavours of cherries, cherry whiskey and Cherry Blossom chocolate bars. Finish is cocoa to the extreme, almost syrup.

Finally a beer in a box that lives up to the box’s hype. Pours black with a big tan creamy head. Aroma is of big milk chocolate, coffee, and chocolate syrup. Tastes of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, coffee, and tootsie rolls. Has a heavy chocolate milk body that is also a little sour with low carbonation. Very smooth with a bitter chocolate aftertaste and a boozy burn near the end. Perfect for dessert.

Dark beer with big foamy brown head. Big, rich chocolate syrup nose. This is all about chocolate, with chocolate ice cream, Hersey’s syrup, cocao powder and melted m&ms. Thick mouthfeel. This is a dessert in a glass.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted sweet chocolate, tobacco and alcohol aroma. Heavy sweet roasted malt flavor with a heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

Wonderful. Not complex, but incredibly flavorful. Solid milk stout, with strong chocolate overtones.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin khaki ring. The aroma and flavor have big sweet chocolate, vanilla, some lactose, becomes almost syrupy chocolate and very sweet, I like it, but wouldn’t want to drink a bunch of this.

750ml bottle, thanks to Micah W. for sharing. Geez... Nose is exactly like nestle chocolate milk. The nestle powder you put in milk. Cocoa puffs. Dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Leaves good dots and short ropes of lace. Some vanilla in the flavor. Lactose. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Kind of a spicy taste in the finish. Alcohol is well hidden, just a light spicy bite at the end. Pretty nice chocolate milk stout. Fascinating nose. Reminds me of drinking nestle cocoa milk in Beirut.

Koelschtrinker (10669) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Intensiver Kakaogeruch. Sehr süßer Schokoladenantrunk, der schon übertrieben wirkt. Das Bier bleibt sehr süß, die Schokoladennoten bleiben konstant, der Alkohol ist erkennbar. Nach mehreren Schlücken hat man das Gefühl einen Zuckerschock zu erleiden, etwas Rum. Mir zu krass. 8/8/7/8/12/7

TheCaptMatey (32) - Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Poured a dark black colour with a thick mocha/caramel head that had decent retention and much lace. Had a rich aroma that reminded me of a powdered hot chocolate. Very sweet chocolatey taste which masks the taste of hops and malted barley. Borders on the realm of a true dessert beer. Alcohol also hits very quickly.

pootzboy (1590) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours a light defying deep dark brown with a lush mocha colored 3 finger cap goes to a surface lace. Aroma – what can I say chocolate and milk sweetness – chocolate milk … but is this this gorgeous concoction beer?? ….lets see – malts and hop have a hard time breaking through the coca and lactose richness but they do mid palate and more so in the big wet viscous finish – if this beer has a signature it is the cocoa/lactose intensity is barely held in tow but pleasant – and not a hint of the substantive alcohol these intense flavours hide – a beautiful big bad brew. 2 thumbs up

libertine (210) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
pours black with a dark brown head. Huge chocolate aroma right when I opened the bottle. everything about this is chocolate. alcohol is very well hidden. has an oily mouth feel. full bodied. does not finish as bitter as you might think. Pretty much as close to perfect as I could imagine. Make this in a nitro version, would be fantastic.
