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.

Big thanks to ZachKelly for hooking me up with this bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company pint glass.

A: Pours a dark, dark brown and essentially opaque. Forms a thin tan head with fairly low retention and low visible carbonation.

S: They nailed the aroma - essentially perfect white Russian aroma. Creamy milky lactose, vanilla, coffee, roasted malts, and chocolate.

T: Follows the nose, but is a slight letdown. Lactose, roasted malts, vanilla, coffee and cream. A mild touch of cacao. Malty sweetness without and brown malt cardboard flavor. Roast bitterness and lactose sweetness in the hang.

M: Body seems a little light, but probably average for a milk stout. Low alcohol presence and fairly low carbonation.

O: Milk stouts are often not my favorite style, but this one was a nice beer in almost every aspect. They succeeded in making a very tasty, well-crafted beer on a somewhat gimmicky platform - not the easiest thing to do. It was very much a white Russian beer, as the name suggested. Very glad to have tried it.

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.
