It's really cold outside.

Classic pitch black snifter pour. Thick beige head retains as a patchy cap+thick ring, impressive for the ABV. Some splotchy lace.

Lots of alcohol in the scent, literally reminds me of a vodka shot. The rest is kind of a super confectionary sugar cherry-vanilla-molasses-coffee dessert. Kind of a really boozy cordial thing going on.

The taste is toned down booze-wise and clearer flavor-wise, though still pretty hot with alcohol and sweet. Cherries, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, and coffee with plenty of sugar make up most of the flavor. Some roastiness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin but smooth, works for a milk stout at least. Medium-low carbonation and good amount of warming alcohol.

The scent is very intimidating but I warmed up to this one after some time. A very sweet and boozy sipper, not sure if the Milk Stout is the best style to amp up to 15%...

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet cocoa and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it is quite sweet and boozy.

On-tap at 38 Degrees in Alhambra. It's classified as a sweet stout, although its alcohol hits 15%! On to the beer:

Black bodied and topped with a small head which leaves a little lacing around. With one whiff of the aroma, I felt that I had taken my weekly allowance of alcohol, as the aroma is extremely boozy. Lots of booze. There's some sherry and raisin notes to salvage something for the nose. Taste it...there's a display of smoked malts, a whole lot of booze, and some sherry. With time and as the beer warms, some of the alcohol translates to more sherry. Indeed, this is a very sweet and boozy beer. My first few sips, I was wondering what I was getting into to. With time, I was dealing with a strong beer which was also enjoyable. Christmas milk indeed....
