4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from J’s. Pours a deep brown to black with a little bit of foam that dissipates quickly. Big deep milk chocolate nose with some light roasted malt. As it warms some marshmallow comes out. Lots of cacao nib, marshmallow, cream and roasted malt on the palate. Soft mouthfeel with low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel and sweet, but also some nice roasted cacao bitterness. Light graham, but not much. Tasty.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rich black hue under a creamy and fluffy tan head. Stupid amazing aroma with sweet milk chocolate, cocoa nibs, marshmallow, brown sugar, graham cracker, and a kiss of brilliant coffee. Lovely rich flavor that’s sweet with milk chocolate and toasted marshmallow, graham cracker and gentle coffee, and a smooth lactose sweet finish with more cocoa sweetness. Brilliant and complex dessert beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark with a very fast dissolving foam head. The aroma is of molasses, chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts which smells rather nice. Tasting, I got a simple but good mouth feel. It was more thin than I would have imagined too. The flavor was pretty artificial. I got a defined marshmallow taste with a roasted and mildly bitter chocolate malt flavor too. The vanilla is there and the stout was rather sweet. In the end the finish was enjoyable and overall this is an easy drinkable brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with flat, sort of tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, mild coffee, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla. Taste is sweet and very milk chocolate-y, through to the finish. Sort of one-dimensional, although not bad for what it is. Body is a tad too light but creamy with soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. It pours black with a fizzy brown head that disappears completely. The aroma is full of sweet chocolate, a little smoke, some nuts, caramel, cola and hints of vanilla. Very dessert-like on the nose. The flavor has more sweet chocolate, cola, caramel, nuts and a little coffee. Very thick bodied and sweet. It’s a sugary beer for sure, but it has enough body and richness on the palate to remain interesting. Good.
