on tap at the camba taphouse in munch - at least this was one beer on the menu that they didn’t tell us was out. rich dark brown with a minimal head; loads of milk chocolate in the aroma and i mean loads; semi-sweet but not sickly with some modest bitterness

Draft at BFD. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Sweet chocolate syrup aroma. Roasted malt and thin chocolate flavor. Texture is more watered down than I expected but still enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Bottle at Hobbit Cafe. Very very dark brown with a right cream colored head. Aroma of milk chocolate and light roast. Taste is chocolate and roast, a little more bitter than anticipated from the smell, but in any case a touch thin. Medium creamy body.

Very dark. Strong chocolate smell. Surprising watery and milky taste. After that chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!

had a small cup of this .. . smell is of heavy dark chocolate .. . light mouth and a mild empty finish, leaves some coco on the tongue .. . dark chocolate but a bit artificial .. . about what you would expect from atwater, if not a bit better .. . . and even though I’m proud my father invented the rear view mirror, we’re not as close as we appear.

Decent chocolate ale....sort of pitches itself as a stout but sits somewhere between a porter and lighter bodied stout. Reminds me of chocolate chips prior to being baked into a cookie/cake. Not bad but I would not seek it out. Pulled from an Atwater Winter variety pack.

12 oz bottle. Pours a soda brown with a small khaki colored head that leaves some spotty lacing. Huge cocoa aroma! Smells like Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Getting marshmallow in the nose too. Simply mouthwatering! Taste is a big letdown after the aroma. Good but nowhere near as big as the aroma. Pretty much only cocoa with a hint of maple syrup and toasty malts. Getting a subtle metallic taste too. Nice finish of cocoa. Palate is the killer here. Very, very thin and watery with high carbonation. In serious need of thickening. May have worked better as a milk stout or oatmeal stout.

Big thanks to Adam for gifting me this and other Michigan beers. the beer is near black (the lighting was low) with a small tan head. This beer is all about the chocolate. The scent and the flavor are rich, dark, chocolates. A hint of espresso bean, cocoa. medium bodied with a light sweetness. perhaps I was in a chocolate mood. This was delicious.

Smells like pancakes at ihop. Looks black with a weak head. Smells like chocolate and tastes like milk. These milk stouts are really wearing thin on the beer scene.
