I poured this from the bottle into a mug.

The only reason I gave it below a 5 for appearance is because it lacked a head....none! But it poured thick and I could tell right away it was gonna be a creamy, thick stout.

Smells like sweet smokey chocolate.

It is massively sweet. It is everything that I expected, and you can taste the stout behind all of the chocolate. The only drawback is, it is a little too sweet. It would be hard for me to drink more than one. That said, I'm glad I got it and I really enjoyed it.

Mouthfeel is great. It's thick and carbonation is just right. (low)

Overall, I really liked it. It is the sweetest beer I have had yet, which is to a degree that is its only downfall. Very good though.

Pours a dark chocolatey color but unfortunately almost no head.

Smells strongly of lactose, mild sweet milk chocolate, maybe some vanilla.

Taste is much better, huge milk chocolate flavor, sweet malty vanilla and lactose, excellent.

Mouthfeel is pretty thick, silky smooth, a little low on carb but still good.

Very good beer, would buy many four packs if Odell distributed here.

8.2/10

This was my first milk stout and it lived up to its promise. Appearance was chocolatey dark, with very little head. Taste at first favored a roasty nature, but as I drank more the chocolate and sweetness came through. Virtually no hop aroma or flavor, which suited me. I did not match this well with dinner (salmon), but it went perfectly with dessert -- a chocolate, coconut, caramel cupcake. That was an ideal combination.

A new beer from Odell, and a chocolate milk stout at that! Tasted 1 February 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours deep dark brown, mostly opaque. One finger of medium-tan head. Okay retention, pretty good lacing. Not bad.

Smell is rich, chocolatey, and sweet. A touch of smoke reveals the stout in the back, but for the most part, this is rich chocolate milk. It has a touch of the artificial (a la Southern Tier), but just a hint.

This is tasty. Sweet, luscious, and chocolatey. It's definitely dominated by the chocolate and the lactose, but they're pure and harmonious. The stout comes through as support, and a soft touch of dark roast coffee.

Mouthfeel is as it should be, which for a milk stout, is usually quite enjoyable. Slick, smooth, and fluffy. Carbonation could use a boost.

A really nice beer. Definitely nails the chocolate milk, but has enough beer to it that I don't feel like an elementary school kid watching afternoon cartoons. Quite good, and one I'll pick up again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Nearly pitch black, small caramel 1 finger head.

Smell: Big rich chocolate smell, moderate amount of roasted coffee malts coming through.

Taste: Lot of chocolate, sweet, a little coffee but not as much as in the nose. A little bit of hop bitterness on the backend.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, right where you expect a stout.

Overall: Solid all around, nice balance. Very drinkable.
