poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Not dating that I could find.

Poured an oily black with less than 1 inch oatmela hea. persisted in some form until the end, lacing was thin, but consistent.

Aroma was somewhat sweet, with faintly roasted malt

Smooth tasting stout. getting the sweetness. Vanilla aftertaste

Mouth somewhere between thin and medium.

Certainly the best beer I've had from Breckenridge. Would pick it up again.

Bottle poured into the nearest glass available.

Appearance: Medium-brown head two fingers thick. Body is black and opaque.

Smell: Smells sweet and a tiny bit boozy (but not in a bad way). Vanilla, caramel, a tiny bit of citrus.

Taste: About what you might conjure from an imperial milk stout. Chocolate? Hard to find. As I often do with barrel-aged beer, I think the bourbon masks some of the depth. The first few sips finish with metal, presumably from the alcohol. That dissipates over time and tastes more balanced. No real hops to speak of.

Mouthfeel: Clean up front, lingering sugar toward the back, and dry in the very back. Carb is fairly light.

A: black ale body, fat dark mocha head coalesced into a creamy head that laced the sides of the glass, as it persisted throughout the drink.

S: dark sweet chocolate and malt aromas, some suggestion of vanilla, and milk caramels

T: creamy cocoa and mocha suggestions right up front, sweet milk-infused chocolate malt; creamy, again hinting at vanilla and caramel

M: medium to thin body and light, slick, almost fluffy; super soft and creamy-feeling

O: milk/sweet stouts are not a style I often go for, but the idea of an "imperial chocolate cream stout" was very inviting. Great body and feel, perhaps a little too sweet, but then again, I knew to expect that; decadent sweetness and chocolates in creamy black ale - like an ice cream float. Great dessert ale.
