I know there are so many other milk stouts out there that are great but this is the best chocolate milk stout I have tasted so far. If you want the next best thing to chocolate milk with alcohol then this is the beer to give it to you. This is one of my every day beers to drink on.

Lightproof black colored beer with a small brown colored head.

Smells of chocolate and toasted grain. Little bit of coffee and a faint smoke aroma. Some Kahlua smell.

Starts out sweet with a chocolate and toast flavor. sweet coffee taste almost like a syrup. Tasty but the taste can be summed up as chocolate syrup.

Mouthfeel is thick.

Overall a really tasty beer, but it is one the far side of sweet for the style.

12 oz. bottle, with best before date 07/24/14 printed on the label. My first encounter with this beer and my first beer from Odell Brewing Co., acquired via my first ever trade with Texan956. Thanks again, dude.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a milky chocolate brown colored body; opaque in the glass with some cola brown showing near the edges. Just over a finger of creamy sudsy mocha head that fizzles it's way out of existence entirely, leaving just a thin ring behind. Some sticky lacing appears on the glass when swirled, but none sticks. Looks very nice.

S - The smell is of lactose, milk chocolate, caramel malt, vanilla, some mild char / roastiness. What's here is pleasant enough, but it could definitely stand to be turned up more.

T - The taste is of smooth milk chocolate, lactose sugars / cream, caramel, vanilla, & cocoa. Mild chocolate bitterness / roast on the finish.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. Sticky and sugary. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Very easy drinking for the high 8.50% abv. Mild roastiness lingering on the palate.

Overall, a wonderful example of a what a chocolate milk stout can be, and I'm happy to have gotten to try it. I would definitely have it again if it was available to me, but I feel that there are better, more chocolate-forward beers that are more readily available to me.
