Strong chocolate character on the nose. Appearance is a very dark brown with a small tan head. Flavor tastes like a chocolate wafer with a mild acidic bite on the backend. Mouthfeel is medium high with medium low carbonation. Overall, this beer is ok. The chocolate is there, but it tastes one dimensional.

Rather lack luster and forgettable. Expected more. Aroma was solid and appearance was average. Felt like it needed something more body wise. Kinda thin and light with less creaminess than I was looking for. Slightly fizzy in the mouth. Flavor was sweet but i thought i was going to get more chocolate. For some reason i kept making a connection to a cola. Wont be revisiting this one. ttutony (949) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Dark brown with a brown head. Aroma of chocolate and a slight bit of coffee. Fairly light and easy drinking for a stout. Seems more like a porter. But overall pretty enjoyable if not slightly sweet stout/porter/whatever you want to call it. JStax (7307) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a thicker brown to black with a thin, khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has chocolate, graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, chocolate milk powder. The taste is sweet and chocolaty. Thicker mouthfeel with lower carbonation. Pretty nice.

12 oz bottle and full case from Rick - thanks! Tastes like a thick and delicious chocolate milkshake. A pure natural taste abounds. Stunning!

on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon, PA - thought it would be sweeter and more chocolatey. Not as good as expected. outlawskies (564) - Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2014

12oz bottle. Poured a black color with a smaller sized head. Roast, chocolate, lactose, and a bit smokey and burnt. Brigadier (3780) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2014

A nice example of a sweet stout, this beer reminds me to check back on Penn at some point in the near future. A good balanced of lactose, chocolate, and malt results in a drinkable blend that is also workable as a session beer due to the lower gravity.
Aroma / Appearance - The watery presence tricks you into underestimating the contents of the glass. Underneath the creamy tan head is a blend of chocolate pie, crust, whipped cream, and an ephemeral sweetness that fades in the summer heat.
Flavor / Palate - Chocolate pudding, sweet vanilla sprinkles, and delicate malts pair with a dry transition that carries to a low key finish. Rather than being forgettable it leaves the mark of Diet Coke with a splash of alcohol. I would love to revisit this and try a full fresh bottle.
