I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Deep, dark brown with a fingers worth of tan colored head. Light amount of lacing.

Smell- Light aroma of roasted malt at the start that turns into a milk chocolate smell.

Taste- Light roasted malt and slightly bitter chocolate flavor that turns into a nice milk chocolate aftertaste. YUM!

Mouthfeel- On the light end of full bodied and very creamy. Light amount of carbonation.

Overall- Delicious. This just became my favorite milk stout.

A: Dark, opaque brown. Light tan colored silky head. Leaves full-glass lacing and settles into a thin layer of froth along the top of the brew.

S: Roasty java. Dark chocolate. Vanilla. Malty. Cherry sweetness.

T: Vanilla is more present than nose suggests. Roast, but not java like the nose. Dark chocolate bitterness. Hazelnut and caramel. Tastes like chocolate milk with dark chocolate Hershey kisses melted in it.

M: Creamy. A bit boozy. Wet. Medium body. Medium carbonation.

O: Boozy chocolate milk. This one is balanced well and complex. I'll pick more of this up and other Odell finds whenever I'm in MN next for work.

Dark brown color, nice and professional looking. Mild light brown head on it, only about 1/4" in depth. Doesn't leave lace. Its a pretty color and juxtaposition of light and dark brown though.

Aroma was mild chocolate, thought it would be more impressive, but its still a nice breath of aroma from a stout that isn't all about massive roast in the nose.

Taste, a good, cocao and smooth chocolate sensation. Alcohol is amazingly covered up in the mouthfeel, at least at first, it does come out a little more downstream. Not really all that sweet. They got the lactose addition just right. I can't tell if that's vanilla or just a different kind of interplay between the parts giving it a slight bitterness at times (lactose and powdered chocolate milk?). Its a good beer, but its not going to rise to the elite level of chocolate beers.

Thanks to koufax21 for bringing this to the March Madness 2013 bottle share. Of course, a big no thanks to David Hurley, bar guy at El Dorado, for going back on the El Dorado's word of supporting our bottle share. These guys don't support craft beer, they don't support loyal customers. Grade A jerk.

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt, oatmeal, hint of sour, slight roasted malt, pale malt, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a Milk / Sweet Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and creamy with a low carbonation level. Reminiscent of a Baltic Porter. Tastes of roasted malt, tartness, sweet malt, hint of hop, and slight oatmeal. Overall, very weak appearance, but decent aroma, good body, and good blend.

Soft malt with light roast, some sweetness and a touch of lactose. Nothing wrong, but nothing exceptional for style either.
Loud fizzy head that settles out pretty quickly, really. Very dark body.
A very rich drink. Full flavors. Milk and chocolate come through loud and clear here. Alcohol is noticeable with a little heat and spiciness/perfume to the taste- seems out of balance. Also get some warmth in the gut. Some sweetness shows
Moderate to lighter than that body. Reasonably soft feel and carbonation. Drinks lighter/easier than what it is. Could be kinda' dangerous.
This is a perfectly fine drink. No where near the best milk stout I've experienced.
