Drank from bottle. Smells like a Hershey’s chocolate bar. Taste has a lot of chocolate to it. The aftertaste reminds me of chocolate milk. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Good beer

Fresh bottle. Aroma is chocolate, chocolate malt. Taste is sweet chocolate, cream, malt, lactose, vanilla. Creamy mouthfeel but it does not linger. The Wake and Bake is better for a middle ABV stout.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into a Boulevard tulip glass. Pours a deep black with a faint brown hue when held up to light. Light brown head that disappears fairly quickly. Aroma is subdued milk chocolate with some type of off-putting scent in the background that I just can?t place. Taste is bitter in the front with yoohoo/chocolate milk shortly after. There’s also a little more roasted malt than should be in a brew like this. The chocolate milk taste is not nearly as strong as I thought it would be, given the name and label. Mouthfeel is thinner than I would like, and the carbonation could be a little more prominent. It?s not the greatest milk stout I?ve ever had, however, with some tweaks, this could be an incredible milk stout.

You can smell coco beans, but the aroma is surprisingly mild. The look is very dark, but it tastes too watery for my tastes. I was expecting better.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a dark black with a deep caramel head. Nose has a heavy roast that really dominates and doesn’t allow much chocolate, the hints I get are bitter and dry chocolate. Taste has much more chocolate, the body gets very thin towards the back with the roast lingering through a short and under carbonated finish. The roast doesn’t really come through the flavor (just lingers after the finish). There is some rich milk chocolate but still a fair bit of dry and bitter chocolate. Not very well done.

First impression is that it is super sweet. Kind of like cream soda. Not sure if it lacking hops or malt is overpowering. Maybe I have just been drinking better stouts lately (YVBC) Baltic porter bells expedition. Has solid chocolate notes and a lighter mouthfeel than I would expect. Usually a big fan of stouts but not this one b

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rcvd through trade.
Into a nonic, I poured a gentle dark brown body with a three finger off-white head that quickly settles to one finger leaving some nice clingy light lacing in rings above the bulb of my nonic. The head is level with some small light bubbles noticed in the center. The aroma has a strong milk chocolate up front, some light alcohol in the background. The taste has some sweet but balanced milk chocolate that seems a bit more balanced, and has a slight bitter acceptable aftertaste. On the palate, hmmm...I would say its about a light to medium, sessionable, creamy, carbonation is barely felt, sweet sticky finish. Overall, what a nice milk/sweet stout, I’d have this one again, maybe not a superior beer, but still good.

Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Big semi-sweet chocolate right up front, with lighter roasted malts, moderate sweetness overall, and nice lingering chocolate flavor without any cloying sweetness. Good stuff.

Pours a dark chocolate opaque color with thick tan head. Smells of roasts with cocoa notes. A very creamy feel. Tastes like roasted cocoa beans with a slight coffee flavor. Tasty.
