22oz bomber poured into a tulip glass. Aroma is spicy, soy sauce, leather, a little chocolate. Taste is spicy! It really takes over this beer, too much for me.

December 22, 2014 - bottle from Binnys a couple years ago. Says batch 62 and I think this is from 2012. Black pour with huge tannish head that almost foamed over the top of the glass a couple times. The head didnít last long though and didnít leave much lacing. The aroma was chocolate, roasted malt, some spice (including cinnamon) and sugar/lactose. Taste was consistent with aroma with some vanilla, but nicely balanced with the sweetness, roast and spice. The combo of flavors also gave off a woody flavor in the finish that worked well. Maybe a bit too much carbonation, but nice amount of thickness in the body. Glad I waited on this a bit, age seems to have done this well.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy milk chocolate, light-moderate cinnamon/spice, vanilla, and a touch of pepper heat. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a large fizzy brown head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate, vanilla, and molasses. The finish has light vanilla, cinnamon, and faint pepper heat. I think the prickly carbonation lessens the peppers. Itís medium bodied with lively/prickly carbonation. Overall, itís pretty tasty, but the heavy carbonation is distracting.

Bottle: Batch 62. Slow, slow gusher. Super dark brown body with a big, chunky tan head that settles quickly given the initial size. Aroma is a rich combo of slightly dark chocolate & smooth cinnamon sticks. Light undertones of roast, chili pepper spice, faint vanilla, prune, & some mild molasses. Little over carbonated, kind of thin & even spritzy or effervescent. A lofty stout? Wut? Flavor is heavier on the chilies with a nice spice that lingers. Notes of bittersweet cacao, mild cinnamon, vanilla, & roasted malt are also present, but the chilies are left resonating in the finish, maybe with a hint of bitter chocolate. Pretty nice aroma & flavor but the excessive carbonation & billowy mouth feel hurts the score.

This cacao milk stout provides strong coffee and cacao in the nose. Expresso and bitter chocolate on the tongue. A touch too sweet.

Dark sepia, thin cream ring, heavy particulates. Newspaper factory nose, light bubble gum and anise, cocoa. Chocolate front palate with light oat mid, really dusty. Creamy palate. More balance in the end but not beginning?
