3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep black with an of white head. Aroma of creamy chocolate, roasted malts, and a sugar like sweetness. The flavor is similar with the chocolate dominating and the strong presence of cream. A fun and interesting beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Picked this up at Inari Wines in Bristol, VA. Since Terrapin pulled out of NE TN this is the closest place to get it.
Pours jet black with a thin head that quickly fades to a ring around the side of the glass.
Smells of chocolate along with some roasted malt.
The milk chocolate is quite up front in the flavor with some roasted malt falling in behind. Lactose sweetness is quite present as well giving this beer a chocolate milk quality. There is a slight bitterness to balance out the sweetness.
Overall this is a very nice beer. The sweetness never does become cloying and the chocolate is very nice.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s a really nice beer. It has the sweetness from the lactose and the chocolate from the malts, but there is some lingering roast, burgeoning on coffee. It’s heavy and really good!

4.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma- very subtle chocolate and roasty notes, but still there
Appearance- dark as dark can be. no light passing through it. nice khaki head, very short head retention.
Taste- I cant say anything other than it tastes like chocolate milk with a slight roasted malt taste. Even the mouth feel reminds me of chocolate milk. Leaves a very nice chocolatey aftertaste.
Overall- I think i have a new favorite stout. Its that whole childhood lunch flashback, only with alcohol...

Aroma- milk chocolate, some malt, hay
Appearance- dark as night, decent white head
Taste- nice chocolatey sweetness upfront, smooth middle, slightly bitterly roasted finish
Palate- decent body, decent carbonation, nothing special
Overall- Nice little beer here. Not special by any means, but highly drinkable and pretty smooth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter, sweet chocolate all the way, lacks the bitter coffee after taste some chocolate stouts have with them. If you want a medium bodied sweet chocolate stout, look no further.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good beer. Aroma I’d like cocoa powder and vanilla. Taste is also bitter cocoa powders and very present sweet vanilla.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overpriced single bottle from City Beverage. Pours out a black color with a tan head on it. Smell is nothing but chocolate with a little bit of hops. Taste is pretty close to the same; sort of like eating a chocolate bar with milk in it. Sweet and pretty smooth finish. Would be too sweet to have more than one of these.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep black with a two finger frothy tan head.
The aroma is rich with chocolate with a bit of almond and caramel. Nice roasty malt presence.
Flavor is defiantly dominated by cocoa, with toasty malt, and just a tiny bit of dark fruit. The light, smooth body and soft carbonation really lends itself well to this beers delicate flavors.
