4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout - It Melts in Your Mouth!

Every so often you sample a beer from a brewery that hits it just right. The flavor is really balanced throughout the beverage and you sit back and enjoy sipping it, feeling it is wrap around your whole mouth, until it is completely gone.  I had one of these experiences at Meridian Pint and it was truly remarkable.

4 Hands Brewery's Chocolate Milk Stout
Chocolate Milk Stout, brewed by 4 Hands Brewery (1220 South 8th Street, St. Louis, MO 63104 V: 314-436-1559 Web: is one of these beers. It advertises chocolate milk, but it is not anything you have had in glass before. Its a blend of dark and thick milk chocolate, all whipped into a glass. From the minute you taste it, you are hooked. It takes you back to that warm chocolate milk that your mother used to make coming home on a rainy day. It just felt so good and you did not want it to end.  The thing is reminds me most of is Hershey's Special Dark, before Special Dark was available on a regular basis, because of the blend. 

The ABV is 5.5% and there is no IBU. From their website:

Our chocolate milk pours black as the night sky with aromas of dark chocolate, chocolate malt, & more chocolate. With a frothy tan head and a rich velvety mouth feel, our Chocolate Milk Stout is a perfect addition to the change of seasons. Brewed with over three pounds of cocoa nibs per barrel, this beer is a chocolate lovers dream! 
  I gave it an Untappd score of 4.75.
