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.

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.

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.

Thanks to Josh for sharing this growler. Pours a deeper brown with little to no head (although was from a growler that was traded). Aroma of lactose, chocolate, tobacco and nuts. Flavor of roasted malt, smoke, chocolate and lactose.

hopscotch (8893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2010
Growler… RBWG ‘10… Pours motor oil black with a very small, fat-bubbled, beige head. The aroma is nutty and chocolaty – more nutty than anything else. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is much like the nose, plenty of sweet chocolate, almonds and cardboard-like oxidation. Fades rather than finishes. Thanks to darkguardian for bringing this one along to share!

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Sampled at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting, can’t 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.

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.

Growler
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.
