4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black pour with a thin tan head. Big chocolate and cream aroma with a lot of great roast. Flavor is a nice blend of chocolate and roasted malts with a nice and thick creamy flavor in the middle. Mildly roasty finish with a nice cocoa aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Black pour, dark brown foamy head. Sticky lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa nibs, cooked barley, and wooded hops. Tastes of creamy chocolate, burnt grains, coffee and milk, a touch of lacto in the finish. Very rich and full flavored. The finish is all cocoa nibs in fizz. Wow.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from TJís, Carrboro. Sure enough, the pour actually resembles Yoo Hoo, favorite beverage of Myron Bolitar. Slightly dingy dark brown pour, like rusty runoff more than a stout. Nose is synthetic somehow, with its milk chocolate quality giving way quickly to generic syrup. Mild nuttiness and milkshake in the flavor, and lactic qualities to the mouthfeel do enhance the experience. But the body wasnít quite thick enough, and I just wasnít feeling the stoutage here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours very dark brown and clear with ruby highlights. There is virtually no head. Minimum lacing.
Aroma is mild until the beer warms quite a bit. Then it is mostly alcohol with heavy cream at the forefront. Mild milk chocolate smell is also there.
Tastes is pleasant without the alcohol burn that one would expect from the aroma. The alcohol flavor is present with some milk chocolate flavor as well. Sour cream and some hazelnut notes are there as well. Hops are muted and of the earthy variety.
Low to medium carbonation. Texture is light and mildly creamy.
A very accessible Milk Stout that is mild in most respects. Extremely drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(12oz bottle courtesy of drowland!). Pours black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, licorice, and coffee. Taste is initally sourish with the sweetness following up and finishing with a little roastiness. A decent beer-thought it would be sweeter and have more chocolate though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with nice tan head. Super smooth, not at all dry. Also not overly sweet. Perfectly balanced, you get chocolate notes, a bit of malt and a great full body beer. Really enjoyable, worth picking up a whole six pack of this! Really a great chocolate milk stout for someone who doesnít like it too dry or too sweet! Yum

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oh wow, what a nice offering here! Pours the deepest mahogany, almost black, into the glass with a deep brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving trace lace. The nose is of milk chocolate and roasts. Flavors have a lot of dark chocolate, bittersweet and unsweetened chocolate bark, roasted coffee beans and finishes with a lightly smoked milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is very smooth with ever-so-slightly elevated carbonation levels for activity. This feels like a chocolate covered coffee bean in a glass! It really hit the spot and would have again graciously anytime!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark black pour, cookie colored head and a mellow vanilla/sweet milk chocolate aroma. Mouthfeel is oddly effervescent, although has a light roasted malt and mellow sweet chocolate flavor and some creamy lactose on the finish. Not bad, Iím but this bottle may have had some slight infection. Would love to get another bottle and rerate.
