3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours opaque black with a 3-finger tan head. Nice chocolatey aroma with a roasty malt note beneath. Body is medium-to-full, with a light thickness and a mild dryness to the finish. Flavor of chocolate with a strong char underneath. A light, sweet note of dairy cream shows at the back before the char returns in the finish. An excellent variation on one of my favorite milk stouts.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Opened up a 22 oz sitting in my fridge since Xmas and gotta say the aroma is the best of any Chocolate beer I’ve had. Like rich, hot cocoa with the slightest roasted grain. Pours pitch black and flavor hits right away with deep dark roasted malts, coffee, leather and of course chocolate!! It finishes with a perfect hop bitterness that brings balance and an almost bittersweet chocolate finish. Just a tad thin around the middle, so not a grand slam, but definitely a home run.

Bottle from craft ale house. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Big chocolate on the nose. It’s infused well into the taste of the beer. Don’t get as much lactose as I’d expect or was hoping for but the chocolate is nice.

Draft at bistro. Pours black with minimal head. The aroma is full of milk chocolate. The taste is light roast, slight chocolate flavor. Disappointed.

Dark brown with a tan head. Amazing aroma. Smells like Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar. Creamy. Roasted malt flavor with slight note of smoiness. Lot’s of rich chocolate flavor. One of the best Chocolate stouts I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under small fizzy light brown head. The nose is crazy intense on the cocoa and chocolate, this smells more like a candy than a beer. Some nice light nutty, caramel, and roast undertones, but this is all about the chocolate. The flavor is fairly sweet, but not as much as I was expecting. The cocoa actually fairly well balanced with the roast and lactose flavors. Medium bodied with just a slight clinginess on the finish and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice Sweet Stout, a bit of an improvement over the regular Milk Stout.

Deep dark color with a decent sized tan head. Sweet, smooth, with distinct chocolate flavor over the roasted malt. Strong finish. The lactose sweetness is in your face without being too strong.

Bomber from Whole Foods. Pours thick jet black with minimal head. Nose is dark chocolate, cacao, hops. Tastes rich and very chocolatey, with a smooth and hefty mouthfeel. The finish brings more chocolate notes, some lactic oaty flavor, and a roasty finish.

This silky smooth stout surprised the hell out of me. Reminded me of Youngs Double Chocolate Stout, very smooth, almost creamy. A definite winner from Lancaster
