Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

A - Pours a inky black with a one-finger light brown head. Moderate lacing.

S - Dark roasted malts, chocolate milk, and a hint of dark fruit. Overall aroma is "mild".

T - Big milk chocolate notes forward. Nicely sweet. Some mild bitterness from the roast in the mid-palate. A hint of lactose sugars. Chocolate taste not at all artificial. Reminiscent of a rich chocolate cake. Very tasty. Warming alcohol in the finish.

M - Oh so smooth and creamy. Like drinking a milk shake. Full bodied, with soft carbonation. Drying, sticky finish. Amazing.

O - Nicely put together in all areas; excels in taste and feel. Probably the best chocolate stout I have had. So many of these taste like someone dumped cocoa into a beer. The depth and richness of flavor here stands out.

I rarely ever pour a beer out, and I love odell, but this is overwhelmingly sweet, so much so it tastes artificial. Like 2% milk mixed with nutrasweet. Really wanted to like this one.

If you let this beer age in the refrigerator for a year, a miracle will happen! It lost all of its alcohol taste, became a little more sweeter, and the chocolate was much more intense. The consistency seemed to be thicker as well, and so much smoother. Thought I was drinking a "Five Dollar Shake". This was one of the best Stouts I've ever had, only second to Stranahan's aged Yeti.

Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 5/24/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - pours a dark brown. Sits black in the glass, but a bit of light comes through. A thin beige head that leaves sheets of lace!
Smell - very tame nose; some light roasted coffee beans and very little chocolate notes.
Taste - wow, wasn't expecting that after a ho hum nose...flavorful bittersweet chocolate, some vanilla cream!
Feel - mild body, very flavorful, bittersweet chocolate feel and very easy to drink for an 8.5% ABV stout!
Overall - a tasty stout; worth a try, but not something I'll seek out.
