I picked this up on a whim because I'd never seen cold coffee chocolate milk before, and I had a long workday ahead of me so I figured I'd need the pick-me-up. I was faintly worried because I'm mildly lactose intolerant, but for the appealing idea of the drink, I decided to take the risk.
The milk carton packaging suited the beverage better than a bottle would, because the milk base is predominant in the texture and flavour. There was a nice soft bitterness from the coffee that didn't linger, due to the cold brew process, and instead served to underline the richness of the chocolate. Just like putting a touch of coffee into a chocolate dessert heightens the cocoa taste, the same holds true for this coffee-chocolate drink.
I wouldn't really call it a mocha, because that's a stronger coffee profile than the chocolate milk. Due to the richness and milkiness, it's not refreshing exactly, but it's good for if you want some energy and also something elementally familiar and comforting.
