IMHO, one of the BEST Chocolate Stouts on the market today! (granted, living in a rural community, not a TON of varieties to compare, BUT, this beer, for me HAS a LOT going for it! Pours out thick and slow with little tan-ish head that disappears quickly. On the nose, HEAVY cocoa with the stout as a backnote. On the TASTE however the EXACT opposite, the stout comes through, smooth and easy, the chocolate as a DELICIOUS after taste! Very smooth and not overwhelming at all with the alcohol. A definite favorite. Have been curious on cellaring a four pack for a couple years to see how it ages.....

Draft - Chocolate syrup, the expensive kind. Jet black with a thin brown head. Molasses, cocoa, soy and a touch of booze. Nice.

I am not a stout drinker, but this is awesome. I doesn’t taste like any other stout I have add. You can definitely taste the chocolate.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 Bottle: deep black, almost oily pour with a khaki foam that settles quickly to a bubbly film. Aroma is full of dark cocoa dust & some sweet milk chocolates. Smells slightly lactose, light residual sweetness with a roasted malt underbody. Taste is more bittersweet, melted chocolate with a decent milky character from start to finish. Slight alcohol warmth but balanced well with the mild lactose & sweetness. Roasted malt & cocoa dust in the finish.

I need to homer this one a little bit. Generously sent along by IBrew2or3. Pours a nice stout brown with a tan head. Nose is big milk chocolate, dark chocolate, some roast, some mystery, and some lactose. Flavor is similar with a huge chocolate presence, some cocoa, some milk chocolate, and some lactose. Really enjoyable chocolate milk stout; one of the gold standards in the category, I would think.
