An American styled stout made with copious amounts of flaked oats, semi sweet chocolate bars, and lactose sugar. The chocolate bars were tempered with hot wort over the kettle utilizing the steam from the boil. Additions of the tempered chocolate were frequent throughout the entire boil. Lactose sugar was added to provide its signature sweetness to help accentuate the robust chocolate character.

Sampled at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting, cant remember who cracked this, but thanks! Poured black with a yellowish brown head that dissipated slowly. Aroma was a nice combination of both sweet and dark chocolate notes with a bit of coffee. Flavor was more bitter chocolate and some coffee but not particularly sweet.

This came out on tap at Jackie-Os on 2/14 this year, I was looking forward to trying it since theyd announced that it was upcoming on their blog. Didnt make the connection that it was a V-day beer until I showed up that night, but whatever -- this is legitimately a fantastic chocolate stout, despite the gimmickry. It definitely delivers in the chocolatiness department (I often find a lot of chocolate stouts to be lacking there). Black color, great creamy brown head, leaving plenty lace. Really great-looking. Excellent, thick and creamy texture, bigger body. Slight viscosity / oiliness, but its an appropriate amount for this type of beer.. Light and crisp carbonation makes this easy to drink still, as does the balance. Good taste - really sweet, but balanced with enough bitterness to back it up. How chocolate should taste, really.. its of the darker chocolate variety, but the milk stoutiness comes through wonderfully making this like an really rich chocolate milk. Very fair price at $4 each, and an outright steal during power hour ($2 each). Really delicious - was still wowed by it after the first pint, so I had another... Another half-pint was all I really needed, though, 32oz of this stuff can be pretty intense. No way I could have finished a 3rd. Like actual chocolate, this is one to enjoy in moderation - something to treat yourself to. It fulfills its niche very well, it is what it is.

Nitro draft sample on the brewpub side. Pours a coffee brown with a creamy beige head. Abundant chocolate here, obviously, along with coffee, cream, toast, and earth. The milk chocolate is definitely there, but also some more bitter dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Delicious.

Draft to taster at Dutchs and another that I had a few times before. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have, well, chocolate, dark and some sweeter milk chocolate, light roast, hint of earth, just a solid easy drinking sweet stout.

Sample at Jackie Os on 2/5/11. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate, buttercream and roasted malt. Bitter roasty flavor up front, then sweet milk chocolate and bitter semi-sweet chocolate with a nice creamy character before a roasty finish.

Growler shared by Kan at Stoutfest 2012. Thanks! Pours a rich blackish opaque hue, inky and thick, rich and dark. A frothy darker brown head sits atop, laces ok. Aromas are sweeter overall. Offering cocoa, roast, toast. Gentle caramel, coconut, and toffee. Touches of spice. A bit more tame than anticipated. Initial is fuller bodied offering vanilla and cocoa, touches of toffee, vanilla, and cocoa. Rich flavors mix with coconut, toffee, and cocoa. Touches of dark fruit. Middle offers less thickness, more drinkability, with vanilla, spice, and life. Mellow sweetness pervades. Finish is mellow dry citrus, touches of bitterness, spice, and sweet deep malts. Nice but lacking oomph. Silky sweet palate works well here.

This poured a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was of medium roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some lactose. Flavor was smooth and milky, chocolate flavors are definately there, as well as the roasted malt, not overly sweet though and light hops as well. Decent.

Dark brown mahogany color with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, lactose, toast, and smoked wood. Taste of dark cherries, lactose, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a semi-sweet finish.

Growler, RBWG 2010. Pours a flat black body with a minimal wispy light brown head. Rich chocolaty nose with some roast, light lactose, and some minimal hops. The flavor is full on rich milk chocolate with a roasty sweet finish. Its like drinking a chocolate bar. Medium bodied, a little sticky, with soft carbonation. Very nice Sweet Stout.
