3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 2010. A jet-black pour with a skim of a chestnut head. Milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, and some caramel in the sweet aroma. Medium body. Lots of lactose, sweet milk chocolate syrup, Whoppers candy, caramel, and creamy iced coffee upfront in the taste. A moderately bitter finish with some sour qualities and a little licorice here and there. A malty milk chocolate BOMB! A real dessert treat.

Great chocolate smell, taste; smooth milky finish with a bitter dark chocolate aftertaste. Although smooth, heavy and filling not drinking more than one in a sitting.

This beer poured darker and silkier than any beer i have had in a long time. The head looked like the froath and bubbles that you would get in chocolate milk. Very nice sweet cocao smell and the taste followed was smooth, with a great moutfeel and lots of chocolate.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle from Fireworks. It pours a very dark brown with a frothy brown top. The nose really does smell like Yoo-Hoo but with a little more roast. The flavor is creamy and sweet with lots of chocolate notes and enough roasted malt to add some complexity. Rich, but not too heavy, I could have a few of these. This one is heading to the top of list for favorite sweet stouts.
