On tap at Fat Head’s Brewer’s Brawl
A nice example of a sweet stout, this beer reminds me to check back on Penn at some point in the near future. A good balanced of lactose, chocolate, and malt results in a drinkable blend that is also workable as a session beer due to the lower gravity.
Aroma / Appearance - The watery presence tricks you into underestimating the contents of the glass. Underneath the creamy tan head is a blend of chocolate pie, crust, whipped cream, and an ephemeral sweetness that fades in the summer heat.
Flavor / Palate - Chocolate pudding, sweet vanilla sprinkles, and delicate malts pair with a dry transition that carries to a low key finish. Rather than being forgettable it leaves the mark of Diet Coke with a splash of alcohol. I would love to revisit this and try a full fresh bottle.

Bottle. Pours a flat black body under a small fizzy light brown head that faded quickly. The nose is super chocolaty and sweet with some rich roasty malt. The flavor is just as sweet and full of milk chocolate as you could hope for. If tastes like a candy bar in a glass. No bitterness or burnt notes at all, just tons of milk chocolate. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Nice beer for about 6 ounces, then I could pass on the rest.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated side by side with 3 other Penn brews. Pours black with nearly no head. Aroma if rich cocoa powder and chocolate sauce, some earthy coffee to this, and definite sweet lactose notes. Flavor is light chocolate sauce, a tiny bit of earthy roast, and a nice sweet lactose touch. Medium bodied, smooth, with low plus carbonation. Hey, this is a pretty darn good sweet stout.

Tree bark brown. Minimal lacing, in fact, I don?t see it any more and my beer is still cold. Sweet subtle aroma of chocolate, malt, sugar, wood and we earth. Taste is exactly the same. Very clean stout. How can you go wrong?

Draft at Glaziers pub at Hidden Valley. Aroma is nice huge chocolate notes. Very similar to Samuel smiths organic chocolate stout. Taste isn't quite as smooth though. Medium bodied. Light sweetness. Creamy and slick texture. Nice cocoa and some roasted malts. Good.

Rich chocolate aroma and taste. Enjoy the chocolate forward approach. Body overall average, but a fun beer to have.
