4.11/5  rDev +0.7%

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a rich black color with a dense cap of khaki head. Nice retention and great lacing.

Nose is sweet chocolate with a mild plum fruit and brown bread. Smells like a milk stout, thats for sure.

Taste starts with chocolate and mild roast, followed up with a surprising amount of grassy hop. The finish is long and dusty with the alcohol finally making its presence known. The mouthfeel is very nice, the beer is perfectly carbonated and the body is silky smooth. It is not as heavy and sweet as I thought from the aroma, but it is more than enough to compliment a 8.5% ABV. This is quite a tasty treat, I am looking forward to getting some more of this on my next trip up to the metroplex!

Another extra from BullDoza...stoked to try this one as I love a good milkstout

Bottled on date states 6.18.14. Poured into a Woodshop 7th Anniversary tasting glass. Upon opening the bottle there is very little carbonation. A vigorous pour confirms slight but not a ton of carbonation. Appearance is black. Not viscous though. Smells of chocolate and coffee...not a lot of lactose though. Taste is smooth. Slightly sweet. The lactose makes itself known but is more sugary than sweet. Milk chocolate notes. It's almost like a toned down (but imperial version of Left Hand Nitro). Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall, it's a good beer, but it's certainly not the best milk stout I've had. I still rank Beachwood's Udder Love and Left Hand's Nitro the two best that I've had. Still, a decent beer. Cheers!

Appearance: Dark as night with a half-finger head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing around the glass.

Smell: Yum! Caramel, vanilla, sweet chocolate. Mouth-watering smell.

Taste: Delicious beer. It's got a great sweetness to it, highlighted by caramel and some chocolate. I can taste just a little bit of the alcohol, but not much. I really love the sweetness to it. It's very desert-like.

Mouthfeel: A fair amount of carbonation, very easy drinking.

Overall: I love it! This is a great milk-stout with a lot of sweetness. Proud of my homeland for producing such a wonderful beer!

On nitro tap at the Common Table.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a nitro-induced tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and coffee notes, as expected. The flavor features a lot of chocolate and some light smoke, as well as a ton of roasted malt notes. Slick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

3.91/5  rDev -4.2%

A friend brought this back for me from Texas. 12oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. I love milk stouts and I love almost anything Imperial so this seems right up my alley.

Pours a frothy .5 finger light mocha head with moderate retention. Beer is pitch black but looks a bit on the thin side. Lacing is thick and patchy with good stick. Decent.

Nose is bitter chocolate, roasted malt, lactose and smoke. Creamy with a nice balance but this doesn't have the "slug you in the face" quality that I'm looking for from an Imperial stout.

Opens lactose sugar, chocolate, anise, and a touch of liquorice. Mild smoke and roast tartness in the middle balanced by some fudge and cocoa powder. End is slightly boozy with more roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet aftertaste. Pretty much what is expected, which is to say, a strong, bold milk stout. Enjoyable!

Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with the slightest bit of bubbles in the mouth. Silky and a little bit hot going down. Finishes messy with a lingering, sticky aftertaste. Pretty good.

I wasn't sure what to expect here but the combination of Imperial and Milk Stout suggested a beer that just couldn't miss. Although this doesn't blow me away, its certainly a worthwhile offering. Try it!

12oz bottle

Pours a deep dark black color with a light tan head. The aroma is sweet dark roasted malts, cocoa, and a touch of smoke. The taste like the aroma starts out with sweet dark roasted malts with a lingering sweet and roasty notes in the finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth and medium bodied. Overall, this is a solid milk stout that is worth a try for anyone who enjoys the style.
