4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black/dark brown beer with beige head. Aroma is mainly cocoa, milk chocolate and bit of carmel. Medium carbonation and almost no bitterness. It’s like a milk chocolate in bottle. Excellent chocolate stout

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
550ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a 2 finger beige head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain and herbal hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A fairly decent brew for the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (550 ml). From Sammy, thanks! Brown with a medium mostly lasting beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of intense milk chocolate, cocoa powder, marshmallow, caramel and vanilla. Taste is sweet (almost cloying) with a ton of milk chocolate and cocoa along with vanilla, marshmallow and carmel. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Chalky mouthfeel. Unidimensional and too much milk chocolate/cocoa powder forward. Not bad, but not really enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a small head which doesn’t last long. Aroma is lots and lots of milky chocolate, slight hints of coffee. Taste is all about the chocolate- it is smooth and silky, velvety mouthfeel, you want to bite down on it. Really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours clear brown with a very nice creamy light beige head, some retention and lacing. intense milk chocolate with marshmallows, vanilla, dusty sweetened cocoa, hazelnuts, nutty caramel, chalky, clean and tasty yeast. not necessarily cloying but fairly sweet. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, sweet and slightly grassy-peppery finish. finding myself really enjoying it even though this is a cold malted milk chocolate. tasty but somewhat linear.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A good chocolate aroma with a matching taste. Not too sweet with a nice finish. It’s what a Chocolate Stout should taste like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not that great. Tastes like fake Nesquick. Bit of a let down after some major hype from my brother.
