Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma is full of rich chocolate that is creamy and sweet with some roasted malts and dark grains backing. Flavor has a similar rich chocolate note with sweet dark grains and some roasted malts backing.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a strong chocolate aroma. There is a slightly carbonated sweet chocolate flavor with a dry finish. A nice dessert beer.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2015 I bought this pretty much based on the aroma. I guess a bottle must have broken in the case and when i picked up it bottle it was sticky. But that stickiness had an amazing rich chocolate milk scent to it. Unfortunately, the rest of the beer is a bit lack luster. The flavor does have some chocolate and lactose in it but does not live up to the rich aroma. Somewhat watery mouth feel also did not help the experience.

Pours dark black. Has a strong chocolate aroma. Has a strong coffee and chocolate taste with some dark fruits - mostly prunes - that linger.

gripweed57 (911) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2015
22 ounce bottle. Translucent brown color. Moderate rocky tan head. Rich sweet roasted malt nose is redolent of milk chocolate. Reminiscent of Cocoa Puffs. Bittersweet roasted malt flavor has notes of bittersweet chocolate and toasted walnuts. Hints of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. Nicely done.

Smells and tastes like chocolate, this beer is fantastic. Smooth when cold or warm, it's delicious without being too heavy. My only knock is that if it was a little creamier, it would be better than Young's. Fantastic overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dhatton (137) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours a thick, deep, dark body with half-inch tan cap of foam that dissipates relatively quickly. Inviting aroma with rich, milky chocolate up front and some earthy nuttiness on the back. Taste is not nearly as sweet as the smell. Coffee and vanilla flavors combined with a robust, raw cocoa taste, likely derived from the added cacao nibs. Roasted malt backbone finished with a hint of acidity. Lactic taste offers a warm balance. Slightly bitter finish, yet exceptionally smooth.

From bottle, served in tulip glass. Inky dark with tan head, rich chocolate aroma. Very nice dessert beer, sweet chocolate caramel flavor with clean finish. Not a subtle chocolate stout, but enjoyable.
