UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 3/26/12-re-rate from Stout Fest. Had to try this one again and see what the deal was. Second time around, much improved. Much more malt driven with drying roast and less cloying milk sugar. The chocolate is a bit more subdued and less sweet overall. Much, much better this time around. 3.7. 5/26/11 -Draft at Fountainhead. Pours black with a tan head, pretty good looking beer. Nose expresses chocolate, hersheys syrup. This is going to be sweet. No hop aromatics. Some light roast notes are present. On taste, sweet. Cloyingly so. The lactose overtakes the cocoa notes. It rides the tongue and wraps it up. I cant get past the sweetness. Reminds me of Dark Horizon 3. Not my bag at all...2.4

Growler fill from half acre... Pours a deep stouty pour, barely lighter at the edges with a frothy light beige head quickly dissipating to a thin wispy film... Aroma of cocoa and soft to medium roast, perfectly fine for the style bu nothing out of the ordinary... Milk chocolate and a moderate degree of roast, semi-sweet in nature. Carbonation is light but present and body is o the softer to medium side. Not bad but not all that special.

Taster at the Half Acre taproom. Tan beer with a thin ring of foam. Deep choclate smell, kind of carried away by the roasty malt. More roasty stout in the taste. Pretty dry, and seems lighter in alcohol than even the claimed amount.

An incredible stout from half acre. Super chocolately and smells like chocolate. Easy to drink. Had at half acre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Draft at Devils Den in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Complex malt aroma with a nice balance of sweet and roasted notes. Hints of sweet and dark chocolate, oatmeal, coffee bean and toffee along with lactic sugar/cream. Smells like a chocolate milk shake. Slightly chewy medium body with a nice balance of sweet and roasted chocolate malt along with earthy, bitter hops and lactic sugar. Really chocolate-y with hints of caramel, toffee and nut. Some roasted dark malt notes and hops contribute bitterness. Hits of oatmeal, coffee and toast but the silky chocolate and lactic sugar notes dominate making this beer silky smooth and easy to drink.

Feb 2016 batch. Thin black pour. Very light. Milk stout lacto. Unsweetened chocolate chips. Light stout / Porter roast. Bitter chocolate finish. Flavors are all very light, about what you would expect from 6%. Body is pretty light. Skim milk creaminess.

On tap at Timothy OTooles in Gurnee. Big chocolate malts, leaning to the sweet side - although the bitterness fought through at times. Solid and tasty. 14

About half way through one of the growlers I picked up. Pours very dark brown with nice large dark tan head. Beautiful looking stout. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavors of roasted malt and unsweetened chocolate. A bit of lactose, but not much. Finish dry and roasty. Mouthfeel is a thin. A little thicker body and we would have a real winner. Solid beer none-the-less.
