Black, decent tan head. Smells like a Milk Dud, or maybe a YooHoo, with a lot of milk chocolate character. Flavor is a lot of milk chocolate, too, with a good dose of vanilla. Hints of coffee creep in as it warms.

From notes. Had on tap at Schlafly Taproom.
Was about halfway between a vanilla milkshake and a great shot of vanilla vodka, but without the alcohol. Aroma was sweet and roasty, with milk chocolate and vanilla notes. Taste follows but the vanilla was more pronounced but not overblown. Chocolate notes as well.
Slick and sweet, very true to style. I doubt many will ever have this one, but the ones that do are quite lucky as it’s very tasty.

Sampled at HitC. This smelled really sweet and lactic. The flavor is less o of both. Bitterness is very soft. Nice.

Tastes like milk. Dark black. Solid vanilla. This should be served to kids instead of chocolate milk.

Tasted at the 1st annual Urban Chestnut - Wolpertinger beer festival in St. Louis, MO, USA from tap into beer boot sampler. Poured a mostly clear dark brown color with creamy, aromatic beige foam and some lace. Smooth, creamy, lots of residual sweetness from lactose and grains, loads of vanilla. Low hops, low carbonation. Medium body, syrupy and chewy. Overall impression was chocolate milk. Too sweet and vanilla-y for me, but unique and well-crafted nonetheless.
