3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10 ounce sample on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Denver. Sweet, sugary, cocoa-chocolate aroma present. Light roast and vanilla, too. Mostly opaque dark mahogany body with a small-medium light tan head. Starts with sweet, chocolate, sugary maltiness. Some vanilla character comes through in the middle. Finishes with more sugary chocolate. Reminds me of a chocolate-covered cherry. Kind of cloying, but flavorful.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark black with a one inch dark tan head. Taste is of chocolate, milk, roasted malt, smoke and some vanilla. Similar, clean aroma. Has a a creamy body, with a touch of warming alcohol. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable.

Pours dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, notes of malt. Taste is sweet and chcolately. Not quite as complex or rich I’d like, but maybe I’m trying to make this into an Imperial. It is smooth, creamy, and very drinkable. A good beer, and I’d give it a clear ’thumbs up’.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Comes out of the bottle dark with a thin tan head. Smells like milk chocolatey goodness, and some coffee. It tasted much darker and a little more bitter than I had expected, nor as creamy. Chocolate flavor is like a dark hershey’s bar. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Overall a good beer, but I think some other local CO chocolate/milk stout’s top it.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma smells quite strongly of chocolate and lightly of roasted malts without the overall aroma being overwhelming, and the color of the beer is pure black with nearly no head (with what exists being tan). The taste of this beer is an indulgent mixture of slightly umami, slightly bitter, and quite sweet; furthermore, the palate combines a soft carbonation, full body, oily texture, and a long finish.

Overall, a solid stout. Complex and well carbonated. I'm not a huge fan of milk stouts but I enjoyed this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 Pours dense near black with lingering khaki foam. The aroma is sweet slightly roasted grains, sort of a boozy beer chocolate note. The flavor is smooth slightly creamy roasted grains with a grainy chocolate, a little vanilla like. The lasting flavor is semi sweet chocolate almost bittering grainy afterward with the alcohol being more present. . Good initial taste but the grainy beer finish reserves it to being better with a pairing.

black pour with creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, soft licorice, roast. Full bodied. Flavor is a lot of chocolate, some lactose, but there could be more. Overall an enjoyable brew.

Have tried a couple chocolate stouts recently. Saw this in the store, didn’t get it, then saw it on tap when I went out for lunch with a friend. You really smell the chocolate, just like chocolate milk, at first, then the sweetness moderates and it finishes with a mild bitterness for a nice combination of tastes. Will have to pick some up soon as it is seasonal and goes out of production shortly.

Dark black pour, slight beige head subtle roasted chocolate nose. Creamy mouthfeel, one of the easiest drinking thick beers I’ve had in a long time. Super smooth, chocolate and a touch sweet.
