Pours black with tiny brown head. Aroma of chocolate and sweet sweet lactose. Slight bit of roasty coffe smell but mostly chocolate. Sharp carbonaton, but still relatively smooth. Huge sweet chocolate lactose flavor, a bit of brown sugar, and very sweet. A little bit thin. Definitely a dessert beer, and decent for the style.

Darft. Very dark brown, tan head. Nose is coffee beans, lactose, chocolate milk. Taste is chocolate milk, cocoa nibs. Highly carbonated. Probably fares best on nitro.

12oz bottle---->snifter. Pours pure black with the tiniest head. Smells of roasty malt and strong, sweet chocolate. Taste is full frontal blast of sweet chocolate with a small bit of bitter on the back end. Slightly thin, but smooth palate. If you’re looking for a chocolate beer, this is the one.

Aromas of milk chocolate with a little roasted coffee essence. Brown-black with a quickly dissolving tan head. Rich chocolatey flavor accompanied by vanilla, caramel, and coffee undertones, slightly sweet, off-dry, roasty, and finishes clean. Texture is milky smooth.

Successfully marries hops, coffee and chocolate. The sweetness is not cloying, but recalls-- from a proper distance-- the taste of the pseudo-namesake child’s drink.

Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Nose has tinges of sweet in there, but mostly some unsweetened chocolate. Taste is actually a tad sweet with some great chocolaty goodness in there. Very easy to drink.

A mild chocolate stout with some interesting flavors. Not overpowering and not very sweet. Would pair with most stout-friendly foods, as opposed to much sweeter chocolate stouts that should be considered purely after-meal desserts.
