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.

Poured into a glass mug. The beer pours black with a thin, brown head with some visible carbonation from the side of the glass. The aroma is of milk chocolate and malt with some sweetness in the aroma. The breadiness and roastiness of the malt is more forward in the flavor than it is in the aroma. It blends well with the milk chocolate in the flavor. There's some nice sweetness and some alcohol comes through in the flavor, but it's not overwhelmingly boozy. The body is full with moderate carbonation. The finish leaves a nice roasty aftertaste in the mouth that doesn't linger too long, but it aids the drinkability of this big beer. This is an excellent beer.

Unfortunately, I had this aged a year, and I do not know how it would taste fresh. That being said, it was very enjoyable. I just wish there was more chocolate in it for something calling itself an imperial chocolate milk stout.

Some nice milk chocolate notes in the nose with subtle hints of coffee and a strong whiff of roasted malt character.

Flavor is the same as the smell minus the chocolate. The toasted malt and coffee vie for presence to make a nice, subtly sweet brew that screams balance

Pours a beautiful black with a thin caramel head. Mouthfeel is nice and full and more- than-medium thickness
