Another Schlafly Post

Yes, yet another Schlafly post.  This one is courtesy of my brother Eric, who so thoughtfully brought me a growler of Schlafly's Milk Chocolate Stout!  Before I begin with the review, this beer is NOT available at your local grocer.  This is a draft only beer.  Unfortunately, it's not realistic for a small craft brewery, like Schlafly, to bottle fifty-plus brews.  Thank God for the invention of the Growler!

The aroma is very pleasant.  Reminds me of Cocoa Puffs.  No joke.  I was expecting it to have a strong milk chocolate flavor, but I was pleasantly surprised.  It tastes like one of those $5 bars of expensive dark chocolate you can buy at a health food store.  Really smooth, delicious, and slightly sweet chocolate taste for a stout.  The dark chocolate stays with on the finish, which is nice. 

This is one of those beers that you wish they would bottle, at least as a seasonal brew.  I was about to just type here for someone to bring me another growler of Milk Chocolate Stout from St. Louis, however it looks like it has already come and gone...  Guess everyone will have to wait one more year.
