12oz bottle into snifter - thanks Penguin

Deep black pour with a bubbled crop of tanned head perched on top. Bubbly retention, spotty lacing and a wisp of film.

Mild chocolaty scents with cocoa, milk sugar and caramel. Roasted dark malts and soft warmth.

Intensely flavorful milk chocolate, cocoa powder and caramel swirl together into a beery transformation of hot cocoa. Sweet and balanced, roasted dark malts, bread crust and milk sugar. Finishes a bit chalky and chocolaty.

Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, chewy and smooth on the tongue. A delicious, chocolate-forward stout, although I wish the nose was as impressive as the profile was.

ODell Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout: You will pour pure magical blackness into the glass, but a fine head will form to keep the elixir in its place. The aroma is subtle. The flavor is big, bold and spot on chocolate milk. There are Imperial Russian Stouts that I like better, but if you want a chocolate milk stout, man, this is the one! I wish my fifth grade milk program served this brew. Top it off with the humorous label and ODell has a winner on its hands. Must try beer. You may get your wife into stouts with this creation, and your kids as well!

Appearance: Pours out a dark brown that appears pretty much opaque black in the glass. About 1/2" of dark tan head forms, that has okay retention and does retain some lacing. Pretty good looking milk stout.

Smell: Smells pretty roasty, with chocolate and lactose coming through as well. Very aromatic compared to many milk stouts out there.

Taste: Lots of chocolate, roast and lactose flavor coming through in waves. Very sweet. Mid palate and on the finish though, it turns pretty cloying and you can really tell it is 8.5% ABV.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Medium bodied and pretty creamy. Again though, it turns a bit hot on the end and drinkability is not high at all. Very much a one-and-done type of beer. Overall, a very flavorful milk stout that is pretty enjoyable and unique. Would probably buy again at some point if given the chance.
