3.63/5  rDev -15.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

2013 bottle courtesy of wade5614 into a kuhnhenn tulip.

a - brew opened with a pop...no gushing, but there is a lot of carb. 30% pour of the tulip was filled to the brim with foamy head that seemed to just grown and grow and grow. i poured fairly carefully as well. none-the less, after a LONG time of settling and pouring and whatnot, i got a decent pour. black as night with the grey cream colored head that i already spoke about...which really dominated the beer and the pour.

s - nose is chocolate with some strong char.

t/m - the taste is where this one comes to life. like chocolate milk...smooth and silky and fairly soft. the carbonation shows itself in the mouth on the finish which is a bit harsh and overly charred.

o - overall, not a highlight for me from the kuhnhenn catalog, but far from a bad beer. if the carbonation was more under control, this one could've been a moo hoo killer, but alas the carbonation is intense making the foamy head overbearing at times. as always, glad to have tried it!

4.05/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

2014 Batch. 12 oz poured via bottle inversion into a pint glass.

A: Dark black, opaque to light. Even with the hyper aggressive pour minimal dark brown creamy head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin and unrelenting surface film that stuck around throughout.

S: Hershey's cocoa powder. Intense dark chocolate is really the only thing obvious on the nose. There is some roasted malt, dry lactose, and espresso bean hidden behind that chocolate.

T: Follows the nose. Chocolate milk with very well balanced roast profile and minimal bitterness. The sweetness of the lactose is very reserved, dry, and stands on its own against an appropriately moderate roast bitterness. Typically expect a little more lactose on a milk stout, and a little better integration, it kind of reminds me of raw lactose powder. Nothing here is overdone or EXTREME. Subtle vanilla on the mid-palate that I completely missed on the nose.

M: Smooth and creamy. This would really benefit from a Nitro pour, I can see the potential and it left me drooling for what it could have been. Very minimal carbonation that faded throughout.

O: I don't really know what an "Imperial" milk stout is or is supposed to be? That said, this beer hits a little heavier in terms of flavor than most milk stouts. The lactose is somewhat poorly integrated - the chocolate carries everything. A powdered truffle in a glass.

3.51/5  rDev -18%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dark brown to black. completely opaque. poured fairly strong but no foamy head formed, hardly even enough to cover the surface.

Smell: supper chocolaty. good dose of milk sugar. some roasted malts but mainly hidden by chocolate

Taste: opens up with pure cocoa. very strong and unmodified chocolate. some milk sugar that plays in with darker malts.

Mouthfeel: fairly light and creamy.

Overall: when i think of imperial in a beer i look for a lot of character and intensity. this beer has good flavor and intensity with the chocolate but i think it needs more dimensions. maybe some more dark malts or dark fruits. just missing a little something to push it to a new level.
