Fifth time's the charm brewing this collaboration with Hop Butcher for the World. Brewed using unrefined cacao nibs, lactose, and pistachio. The velvet mouthfeel gives way to a smooth, creamy chocolate finish. It's officially the holiday season with this annual tradition.

32 oz. crowler from Mike and Rachel - thanks again, guys! They picked it up right at the source the day before visiting me. Pours a cloudy cocoa brown, pretty deep in hue, with a small beige head that settles into a ring and island of film. The cacao nibs come through more than the lactose or pistachio, but those add a nice texture to this. Smooth and creamy and chocolaty and toasty, with a nice rounded edge. Just light roast and a little earth, leaning more toward the sweetness. Modest carbonation. Really tasty.

Draft at Hackney’s Printers Row. Nutty, milk chocolate, chocolate ice cream, coffee, pretty simple flavor profile. Not bad.

(En fût au Maria’s Community Bar): Des arômes riches de gateau au chocolat et de vanille avec une exubérance de noix assez suave. En bouche ça ne décoit pas, l’aspect pistache prend encore plus sa place. Superbement exécuté.

Milky and nutty flavor. Maybe a coconut kick to it. Black pour with white head. Had this as part of a flight at Dryhop brewery. Very tasty and flavorful

on tap @ millerspub. mocha, nutty finish -- and that weird sweetness some milk stouts have that i don’t care for.

[Tap] Jet black colored pour with a creamy brown head. Potent chocolate and sweet cream aromas. Milk chocolate, lactose, licorice, brown sugar and earthy malts in the flavor. Not detecting much pistachio. Creamy and coating mouthfeel. Very nice body. Lingering mocha latte notes in the finish. Well done!

This is a really unique and awesome beer. It is a really crushable milk stout with a minty pistachio flavored backbone. Smells like coffe with a bitter finish. Had at dry hop tap room ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is freaking amazing. Smell is biscotti, caramel, graham cracker, cacao. Flavor is rich and creamy, very caramally, huge flavor for being 6% abv. Delicious.
