Found a pretty cool beer spot close by to the hotel and headed over that on my last night in Atlanta. Wish I would have seen this the night before. Thought I had this one before, but alas I had not. Sounded pretty damn good.
Poured a pitch black color with three fingers of creamy white, rocky head when I got it. Appeared to be nitro it was that creamy. Excellent foamy lacing. Almost perfect foamy retention. (Sight - 4.25)
Smelled milk chocolate, bitter coffee, vanilla, caramel, toffee, espresso hints of hazelnut, maybe even peanut butter (wishful?). (Smell - 4.50)
Taste followed the nose, maybe not quite as good. Chocolate milk, vanilla, caramel, toffee, roasty nuts and milk chocolate. (Taste - 4.25)
Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.50)
Just loved this beer. Can’t believe I had never tried it, but I want it again. (Overall - 4.50)

Pours black with tan head, the aroma is milk chocolate, chocolate, malted shake. The flavor is chocolate up front and throughout. The flavor a dark chocolate milk shake. Overall the body is just right this is very good. Would recommend over youngs chocolate stout.. Aggiebob (1212) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Draft. It poured a dark brown with a nice tan head. The aroma was milk chocolate. It was very sweet, like drinking a glass of hard chocolate milk. tfontana (1044) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Appearance is dark brown with finger-width light brown foamy head with fair retention and fair lacing. Aroma is strong cocoa. Taste is strong sweet milk chocolate with light bitter ending. Palate is medium bodied with smooth, thick texture, average carbonation and mix of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, it certainly scores high on the chocolate front and if it tasted like this without cacao nibs I’d give it higher marks, but it is pretty much a one-trick pony without any complexity. Good dessert beer.

12oz pour on tap at Stout W33rd St, NYC on 11-Nov-2016. Brown in colour with a thick creamy beige coloured head. Aroma of sweet cocoa, coffee and malt. Medium body and soft carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel, with chocolate, mocha, roasted malt and spices. Light bittersweet finish. A chocolate desert in a glass. oobawa (1589) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Thin and mild, with a moderate chocolate middle and a modest mocha fade. Weak on the front and finish. Hey, WOB Savannah: clean your damn tap lines. PanMarek (462) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Dark brown pour with thick, quick beige foam. Malty nose with lots of chocolate and toasted notes. Light / medium body with slightly slick texture. The taste is strongly milk chocolate but not cloyingly sweet or overpowering. Very tasty with dessert. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2016
This beer has a solid sweet milk chocolate aroma and flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety. While i do not get actual lactose in the flavor profile, there is something milk shake like about this brew. Nice desert beer. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a deep black color with a finger of sticky foam that coats the glass. Aroma is purely sweet milk chocolate, smells like a milkshake. The first sip is a huge rush of sweet milk chocolate flavor with a thick malt backbone. But this beer tastes all cocoa, all the time. A slight tinniness on the aftertaste. Medium body with moderate carbonation.
