Pours a fading head that lasts around the glass that is tan with a dark, clear brown body. Aroma and flavor is a milk chocolate milkshake with alcohol. Not too bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: looks like a stout should; dark brown to black, with a fluffy tan head. Aroma: strong aroma of sweet dark creamy chocolate, dark toasted malts and some fresh coffee. Taste: dark chocolate, sweet cream, a hint of cherries and dark brown bread. Finish: dry, smooth and slightly sweet; the chocolate lingers. Notes: The most chocolatey of the chocolate stouts I’ve had this season. Very tasty, but the chocolate was just a hint on the too-sweet side.

Heavy, bitter, and rich with a taste very much like bakers choclate. the hop spice came out a bit through the malt and helped bring it together. It reminded me of getting into my moms baked goods. Very delicious. this is my first review so go easy on me

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a small, foamy brown head. Aromas of sweet milk chocolate and cane sugar, vanilla, and caramel. Flavor is mildly bitter cocoa, grass, and a little sweet milk chocolate; a bit disappointing and one-dimensional here. Medium carbonation and slightly creamy. It’s alright, but fell apart at the flavor for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Motor oil color. Thin tan head that left AWESOME lacing and covered my glass on the way down. A pleasant sweet DEEP chocolate aroma that made me think of extra dark chocolate candy. Palate is sweet dark chocolate with a DEEP intoxicating ,roasted coffee flavor. For some; this maybe to sweet of a stout,but not for me! If you like sweet stout, buy this!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Distinct boiled hershey’s syrup aroma right at the beginning, followed by a gentle movement of roast and chocolate malt. Pours a brown-black, with plenty of soapy bamboo-colored head. Flavors give off more of that canned, cooked, corn-based, hershey’s flavor that I find off-putting. Wasn’t expecting it, just hoping for a chocolatey-tasting stout. In the end, that overriding character and the general flaccidness of this beer make it undesirable for the style.
