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.

Pretty rich and a bit too sweet for me. Anne spotted this cheap can. Very nice nose. Starts good taste wise and ends cloying.

ARH (1045) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2016
On tap, poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is without a doubt a rich, smooth chocolate milk. The beer itself appears as a dark, black-brown beer topped by a tan, creamy head that has good, fuzzy retention and abundant sheet lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and light bitter. The smooth texture has a creamy carbonation and a medium body. It tastes like chocolate ice cream with a hint of berry sweetness and finishes smooth with more chocolate ice cream flavors with a hint of a bourbon vanilla / caramel late. The aftertaste is, surprise, chocolate ice cream that tails off to reveal a light bready character and then a dry, grassy cleanliness.

The aroma was great, like you chocolate milk. Poured black with little head. The taste was amazing, just like chololate milk, easy to drink.

MiP (14656) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle, 6%. Dusty aroma with some chocolate milk powder notes. Black colour, seems hazy. Small frothy, and unstable light brown head. The flavour starts off with a distinct chocolate milk powder. Then comes a more roasted note. Late coffee and roast barley aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy tan head. Clear aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate, with notes of lactose. Sweetish flavour of chocolate and malt, with notes of roast and coffee. Hints of hops. Roasty afteraste with hints of coffee. Nice. A very decent Sweet Stout.

Velvety smooth, chocolate abound in both aroma and flavor. Would like it to be boozier, but it still works.
