EithCubes (5369) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Oily dark chocolate nose somewhere between íviscousí and ísultryí, pleasant dark roast and bouncy malt but itís really all about the cocoa nibs. Pitch pour with a light brown head. Not too crisp, medium-full body, mild roast with strong chocolate/cocoa nibs, lightly acidic but not really any bitterness, light sweetness not overpowering. Passing grade but unspectacular.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours an opaque dark brown with a sparse tan head. You can smell semisweet chocolate, and malts. Flavors of malts, and cocoa. Very sweet. Leaves a residual oily mouthfeel with a bit of bitter tang.

Chalsk (1101) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On the (my) Tenth Day of Christmas, the beer gods gave to me... Well a little late here due to a bad bout of the flu. Took out most of the house. But we carry on. Pours a dark brown color with a tan foam head. Aroma of roast, vanilla, and hints of chocolate. Has a light sweet caramel taste with roast and chocolate notes. Tasty. Solid milk stout.

Pours a very dark brown with a medium-sized head. Very delicious - you can definitely taste the chocolate. Some coffee and nut notes as well. Slightly smoky aroma.

Reviewed 12/23/2012. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a very dark brown color. Itís not quite as ultra-opaque as the WnB I had just before this, but itís still dark enough to block out the light. The head is a two finger mocha shade with meh retention. There is a bit of lace left on the glass, at least. S: Surprisingly nutty in terms of aroma. There also seems to be a combination of roasted and charred malts, as well. I donít really pick up a lot of chocolate on the nose. T: Wait, did I say that I donít pick up a lot of chocolate aromatically? Because the chocolate is really battering the palate here. It opens the flavor profile like a wrecking ball - almost as if Terrapin melted a 70% dark cocoa bar into the beer before bottling it. The midtaste brings a lot of lactic cream in a balanced manner. Itís sweet enough to make this a slow sipper rather than a chugger or even a gulper. At least the lactose never comes across as being acidic, sour, or harsh. M: The body comes across as thicker and more syrupy than it really is, which I would attribute to the finishing cream flavor. Thereís some finishing astringency, too, but itís not dry enough finish-wise to balance it out. Carbonation is mediocre. O: I feel like milk stouts are the Tito Jackson of the stout family - but this one hits my chocolate tooth enough to separate it from the pack. Totally rock solid as long as you donít expect it to be WnB.

Chocolate aromas with a touch of roast. Deep black with a full tan head. Sweet with chocolate notes. Full bodied with a sweet finish.

Aroma of chocolate. Black pour with tan head. Tastes like your typical sweet stout with a little chocolate. pretty underwhelming.
