look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

2013 Vintage
Poured into a Duvel Tulip

Appearance: (4)
Pours a deep black with a 2 and half fingers tall dark khaki head that gradually reduces down a 1/4 finger, leaving some lacing behind.

Aroma:(4)
A nice, grassy hoppiness greets your nostrils immediately, quickly followed by rich, sweet tones of chocolate and dark roasted grains. The nose is strikes up a nice balance of sweet milk chocolate, floral hoppiness and some roasted coffee notes.

Taste: (3.75)
Like the nose, you're struck by quick a kiss of floral hops, followed up by some notes of sweet milk chocolate and a distinctive roasted coffee bean bite. The beer finishes off dry with a staying sorta of wetness on your palate. Lingering notes of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, coffee and an herbal bitterness. For 8.5%, the alcohol is very well masked.

Mouthfeel: (3)
Medium bodied, only slightly creamy with moderate carbonation. Pretty flabby on the back end.

Overall: (3.5)
This is Odell's winter Milk Stout made with chocolate. Overall, the beer smells good and taste decent, but it's the flabby, wet finish that really leaves a lot to be desired. Not a bad beer by any means, I just prefer my stouts to finish a tad more dry. For being 8.5%, the beer is very easy drinking, but at the end of the day, it's just not really my style.

A tan head floats away quickly. Color is pure black.

Has a dark chocolate, grain, slight vinegar, and cream aroma.

Tastes of over-ripened cherries, milk chocolate, plum, taffy and pine. Bolder (but thinner) than expected with a warming alcohol heat and complexity that create distinction.

Smooth and dreamy like a sickeningly sweet pop song that ends with an unexpected kick.

I have had this on tap a few places around Houston. D&T and Hay Merchant most recently.

A: Pours a nearly opaque black color. A bit of brown/ruby red around the edges. A two finger khaki head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Roasted malt, light cereal grains. Then the milk chocolate takes over. Silky, lightly lactic chocolate is the show as this warms.
T: Like the nose, roasted malt and cereal grains up front. Baked bread, and that wonderful silky milk chocolate takes over and is a real treat. Near perfect for the style.
M/D: A full body that is not overly viscous. Moderate carbonation, and I can't describe how silky smooth this is. While the alcohol is a bit strong for the style, it is still incredibly easy to drink. I will need to get bottles asap.

Love it. I can forgive the higher ABV (for my liking) cause this is so flavorful and enjoyable to drink. A really good imperial sweet stout. Highly recommended.

Serving type: on-tap
