Pours a very dark brown with no head except for the medium brown foam that appeared when pouring and immediately disappeared. Nose is of roasted malt, chocolate and alcohol. Taste is of chocolate, alcohol, slight lactose. Milk chocolate but not in an assertive way. Almost ash-y. Body is light to medium and obviously lacking with a quite high carbonation. Powdery cocoa in the finish. Slightly sticky. A fair (chocolate) milk stout but I kept wishing it had a fuller body and a lower carbonation.

Had this beer on gravity feed at C’est What. Poured black with tiny tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, brown sugar, and coffee. Taste is of thick cocoa , brown sugary syrup and dark coffee. Palate was very flat and syrup with a heavy body. The gravity feed may have taken away from my enjoyment.
