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.

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 sample from RBWG. Thanks darkguardian. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is chocolate, hops, coffee, booze, and lactose sweetness. Flavor is similar with chocolate and lactose throughout. Light to medium bodied beer that finishes with lingering chocolate. Another very enjoyable beer from Brad.

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, its 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.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2010
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.
