Other than bein a little htin on the palate, this was awesome, like someone mixed the idea of a chocolate malt and beer... it was most excellent. i liked the mellowed out flavor, and by that i mean marshmallow-ed out. mmm smores... aroma of nesquick or something.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 22oz - Pours black with a frothy tan head that goes about half and inch and laces the glass well. Aroma is milk chocolate and lots of it. This beer is a chocolate lovers dream. Flavor is rich milk chocolate over an oatmeal background.. Quite sweet and quite delicious. Like a big glass of quick, but it is beer! On the palate this is a smooth and creamy drink until the finish then it is kind of bitter and beautifully mouth coating. The hops balance the sweetness an make this quite a tasty stout!

Not too bad, but not my thing... I guess I like seeing the flavors come out when you eat the chocolate seperately. Anyways, still good, nice aroma, almost malty.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle. Damn near black with a healthy light brown head. Has a strong sweet chocolate aroma with some earthy qualities. Delicious smelling. Chocolate lovers dream aroma. Dark chocolate flavor hits you first, becoming intensly bitter and quenching at the finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, and nice mellow carbonation level. Flavors of dark roasted coffee and hops are also present. The hop bitterness is strong, but perfectly balancing the sweet chocolate and dark malts. Drinks like a dream. If you like stouts, especially sweet or chocolate ones, this is one you must drink.

Pours pitch black with a huge deep brown head. Some lace but not alot. Smells of chocolate and cappucino.
Taste is overwhelmingly of dark chocolate. And bitter coffee as you might expect. But there is another dimension to this beer and that’s the sweet milkiness that reminds you of a milk stout. Mixed with the chocolate/coffee bitterness, the creaminess lends a bittersweet quality to this brew. Again, a creamy mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish. But still very smooth. Really luscious and easy to drink. Fantastic stout.

Smells like sweet chocolate with a full tan head. The chocolate is strong and slightly bittersweet but quite excellent. Even reminds me faintly of chocolate milk.

Pitch black with a nice creamy/brown head. Great chocolate and coffee flavors. If I was rich and could afford sitting around all day....this would be my choice of drink
