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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Growler at RBWG in March 2010. Pouring a deep and dark mahogany color that is slightly translucent at the edge, the body is topped with a small, swirly, khaki colored film. Minimal, spotted lacing marks the glass. The nose is very rich and chocolaty, as it better be with a name like Sweet Chocolate Love, sporting notes of rich, lactic milk chocolate, subtle dark chocolate roast, and hints of creamy flaked oats. Hops lend a touch of earthiness, but largely stay out of the way. Flavors follow suit, very rich and chocolaty, with a good amount of milky sugars that are balanced nicely with a touch of roast. Moderate in body and carbonation, the palate is soft up front, drinking easy, but it finishes with a bit of a chalky feel. Overall, it’s a very fine example of a chocolate milk stout. Tasty stuff.

Maybe this lost a bit of its luster overnight but by the time Chris opened it to kick off a winter tasting it was still holding up very well. If it is a reflection of what Jackie O’s can do with other styles I think I may have to detour out of my way sometime and find out what the hype is all about. If only Athens were closer to civilization I might have already gone.

Aroma / Appearance - Flat (as expected) the deep brown body still showed signs of life. Rather than limply swirling it clung to the sides of my sampler glass. The rich chocolate and malt reminded me of a malt ball that had melted a bit in the sunlight.

Flavor / Palate - Straight up chocolate is not my thing so the fact that this was dominated by that flavor profile did it no favors. However it did not overdo the effect and soon I was warming up to a decent stout. Paired with the right dessert this would be the perfect thing to wrap up an evening.

Poured on draft. Appearance is a a dark brown with a thin, khaki colored head of foam. Aroma is loaded with chocolate but has a nice subtle oatiness to it. Taste is sweet and roasty. Aftertaste is a sweet chocolate that just sets on the tongue, begging you to give it some more.

Growler from the source. Dark pour with a thick beige head. Aroma is cream, bakers chocolate, vanilla and roast. Complex flavor. Creamy/silky body. Caramelized sugar, chocolate, coffee, roast, and maybe some special b. Solid offering

Received in a pint glass. 3.5 A: Black color. Came without a head. 3.5 S: Quite chocolate-ty with deep caramel notes and molasses. Hints of diacetyl. Supple roastiness and oatmeal to round this off. 3.5 T: Sharp chocolate, caramel, slight woodiness, oatmeal. Again, hints of diacetyl. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy. 3.5 D: Tasty beer that works with or without a bourbon barrel. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 03-25-2012 21:04:52

A-pours a jet black liquid with a tiny bit of deep brown head. S-the nose is light and has some light mik chocolate, notes of oatmeal and some soapy hops in the back. T-the taste is more bitter, the oatmeal and milk chocolate are still there but bitter burnt coffee ridns come in behind as the soapy hop flavors come by themself in the finish. M-good full body with a thick and creamy feel. the finish is nicely carbonated and semi dry. D-this is reasonably nicebut the hop presence seems out of place and slightly off. Still, the smooth oatmea stout body and weight make it drink smooth and easy.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Growler at RBWG. Pours a deep, dark mahogany color and topped by a small head of tan colored foam that recedes quickly to a thin film. The aroma is rich and filled with several varieties of chocolate from sweet milk chocolate to some darkly roasted chocolate. Some earthy hops lend some bitterness which oats lend a nice smoothness. The flavor follows suit with the sweet milk chocolate, roast, and lactic sugars. Medium bodied with subtle carbonation that leads to a sweet chocolate finish. This is an easy drinking chocolate milk stout.
