This was a nice little tasting at a local liquor store. Tastes of mild milky chocolate. Not much bitter. Major sweetness to this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, i think the four pack was $11. Dark black color, tan head, standard stout appearance. Aroma is mostly dark chocolate with a tinge of stout Flavor is more chocolate, cocoa powder, alcohol. Slightly sweet. Iíve read lots of comparisons to chocolate milk and while this is indeed chocolate heavy I really donít agree, its just chocolate beer. Honestly, a glass of Horizon chocolate milk tastes better than this does.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a medium, rapidly diminishing beige head over a clear, but dark brown (SRM 35) body.....nose is heavy chocolate, lighter cocoa, hints of coffee, very light toffee/caramel....taste is heavy chocolate, sweet throughout, hints of cocoa, lighter coffee, finishing with a light bitter finish......mouth feel light of medium, sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds a foamy carbonic quality. The chocolate sweetness overwhelms any complexity in both aroma and flavor. This reduces it to a very simple profile. It does not taste bad it is just that it is really one dimensional. It is really reminiscent of carbonated chocolate milk rather than a Stout. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Pitch black pour with little head and retention. Nose and taste are tons of dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and maybe a little more bitter chocolate. Fairly creamy mouthfeel. Similar to Chokolat from Southern Tier but not as sweet or hearty.
