This is like, totally my opinion ... man.

Was looking forward to quaffing this one as soon as I found it. Hard to get ... already sold out for the most part.

22oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint glass.

Wow ... What a massive disappointment.

Appearance was great - Black as night, but with a minimal head that didn't retain for long.

Only way I can describe the taste was thin and acrid. Like burnt coffee mixed with some tepid water. Didn't get much better as it warmed. No complexity, just ... meh. Carbonation went from too fizzy to flat very quickly.

Now, I loves me some COTU, and of course the Dude Abides. Being a Virginia resident I'm big on supporting our local breweries. But, at $10.00 for a 22oz bottle, I feel totally let down. I'm really hoping I just got a bad one.

Let's not start falling into the cutesy marketing ploys at the expense of the beer. (878 characters)

750ml bottle. Pours a half finger off head. Dark deep brownish purple, almost black. Aromas of milk/cream, chocolate, malt and coffee but not strong coffee. More like a breakfast blend. Caramel. Sugar. I expected it to be full and creamy in the mouth. Wasn't. Much lighter and only lightly creamy. Definitely a traditional white Russian stout. Vanilla. Taste hints of milk chocolate. Ain't no espresso in here so that's a bald face lie on the bottle. Goes down smooth. No burn. No bad espresso aftertaste either. Easily drinkable. Guessing not a high ABV (under 8.0 would be my guess). Delightful to consume. Like it very much. Thank you COTU! Can I have another! (684 characters)

22oz bottle from ThatCracker (thanks man!). Vintage 2013 (released 11/13). Served in my Phish snifter.

Pours cola black with a half finger tan head. A thin layer of haze persists and leaves small clumps of lace.

Smells of chocolatey malts, burnt sugar and condensed milk.

Flavors of espresso, dark cocoa, cherry pits, vanilla, chocolate milk and bitter burnt pine. Fairly bitter taste but drinks pretty smooth with no booze bite.

Medium body with crisp carbonation. Bittersweet coffee and cocoa finish.

Overall this was a decent stout. A bit thinner than I'd prefer and bitter for a milk stout but still quite drinkable. (630 characters)
