In a snifter the beer was black in color with just a rim of head.

Roasted malt aroma. Cream. Fairly boozy.

Milk chocolate/dark chocolate. A little coffee. Booze.

A rich stout. Very boozy, but enjoyable. I didn't think the alcohol was too intrusive, it seemed to enhance the taste.

Had on tap at Pour Farm, New Bedford

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, black in color, opaque

Smell: char and cream

Taste: dark chocolate, light char, cream, and a light smoky backbone

Mouthfeel: heavy body, sweet with char bitterness, low carbonation

Overall: A good not great sweet stout with just enough char to offset the sweetness. The alcohol sneaks up on you. I would get this again, but I would not rush out for it.

Pitch black body with a cream tan head, 10% heavy hitting imperial chocolate milk stout. Off the bat the head doesn't stick around very long speckled lacing follows suit. Aromatics, deep dark chocolate, notes of soy sauce, creamy lactose notes, and again big dark chocolate additions the gangs all here folks. As it warms up I'm getting dark fruit notes within the chocolate/milk chocolate notes. Flavor coats the palate with dark chocolate syrup, cream textures of lactic yogurt notes, earthy nutty notes from the cocoa additions...a really great beer as a whole. It gets a bit cloying sweet be sure to share with fellow beergeeks four to eight ounces is enough for me, 22 ounces is unbearable. Mouthfeel mellows out a bit just a touch of booze notes going on, with full bodied malts. Even flowing carbonation going on down through each sip. Overall, it's a nice beer big chocolate malts enough sweetness to induce diabetes disperse this amongst friends.

Pours black as ink. Gurgles into the bottom of my snifter. Produces a two finger milk chocolate head that recedes to a small ring around the glass.

On the nose is milk chocolate and booze. Some toasted malt comes in on the end but it's mostly booze.

Taste is boozy. Bittersweet chocolate hits first and there are some toasty notes. But the alcohol really takes over on the end.

This beer is retardedly thick.

The booze kills this beer for me. Doesn't hide the alcohol well AT ALL.

At TJ's Everyday today decided to try something new, going with the Brash Smoglifter. It had everything going for it - looks, nose, taste. This was easily one of the best Milk stouts I ever had. TJ's listed it as an Imperial Milk Chocolate stout. I tend to let this style warm up, but even cold out of the tap, this demonstrated a fine palate pleasing profile.

Pours black as the night with a quickly fading dark tan head.
Nose shows roasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate, alcohol and earthy coffee notes. Tempting!
Very decadent flavours. A fair bit of chocolate is noticeable alongside bready roasted malt. Quite and aggressive finish of roasty bitterness and alcohol.
Needs a creamier mouthfeel.
