Growler shared at a tasting. Pours black with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet chocolate with some nice dark roast to balance it out. Medium light creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is smooth chocolate that has a hint a sweetness that is done really well. Its not cloyingly sweet at all. And its balanced with the right amount of roast. This is an outstanding brew. Thanks Brad!

This is my kind of stout. 32oz growler thanks to George. Pours an almost black with a small beige head. Nose is lots of roast chocolate, creamy caramel and oatmeal. Flavor is big on mouthfeel with a extremely creamy chocolate character up front. Chewy caramel malt center finishes with a slightly roasted mocha finish. This is a really good milk stout.

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

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.

This came out on tap at Jackie-Os on 2/14 this year, I was looking forward to trying it since theyíd announced that it was upcoming on their blog. Didnít 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 itís 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.. itís 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 itís niche very well, it is what it is.

Sample at Jackie Oís 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.

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.

Sample from Growler - thanks Josh!. Poured a dark black color with a small sized tan head. Aromas of chocolate, lacotse, roast, cherries and I was getting a bunch of berries. Tastes of chocolate, smoke, roast, and cherries.
