Did you buy the milk stout? yeah you did. But it has COOKIES and it's from BALMER HON! Let's see what gives?

Boy this is real dark and has a very inky pour. Nearly black but just a hint of brown to it. Two finger barely tall for the head, very light tan and coffee brown. Manages a good thin puck and collar while settling.

Bit of lactose like souring going on, or possible mild acrid quality, but nothing horid. Milk and dark chocolate starts to dominate as it warms, a bit of chewy quality also. Fairly decent.

Palate brings a nice mild and milky texture. Fairly balanced with a soft roast and mild bitterness. Not particularly sweet but a hint of bakers like chocolate in the mid palate a bit. Finishes a little dry, much of the sourness hinted on the nose doesn't luckily come through on the palate. A bit of playful carbonation but the fizzy quality has some jarring to it.

Overall fairly decent and ok.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a borderline black color. The khaki head is about two fingers high; personally, I could use a creamier texture, but that's just my aesthetic preferences talking. It also has decent retention.

S: Well, this brings some decent chocolate character...it's definitely not Choklat in that department, and that's forgivable considering it's a single. Some slight espresso, cream, and even floral hops make themselves known. I've never had Berger cookies before (blasphemy!), but I can tell there isn't much in the way of a cookie note here. Otherwise, this aroma is rock-solid.

T: The chocolate flavors here are frontloaded on the palate. After it immediately hits the tongue, the flavor shifts towards a nutty, almond-y tone, before a dry and slightly bitter finish. Probably my favorite feature here ISN'T the cookie flavor - that's too mild and frankly disappointing - it's how well the floral hops balance the chocolate sweetness.

M: Very creamy, which is nice. Rather thin...which is not-so-much. However, it's thin body and dry finish makes it very easy to drink. I could almost chug this if it were less sweet. Of course, then it would fail as a dessert beer, which is what this is all about.

O: The lack of a defined cookie character is disappointing - it makes this come off like a regular chocolate stout in its stead. Realign your expectations for this one: the cookie addition is more a gimmick in an otherwise solid chocolate stout, and doesn't have much of an effect, good or bad. While I have to dock ever so slightly because of this, it's still an enjoyably quaffable dessert beer.

A- Dark brown pour, settles into the glass as a cola-colored body. Thin, bubbly tan head that settles quickly and leaves a ring around the edges of the glass.

S- Hints of baker's chocolate, some toasted bread, vanilla. Not huge aroma, but a nice nose.

T- Roasted malts, hints of chocolate, some dark chocolate, maybe a hint of sweetbread or vanilla too.

M- Pretty creamy, medium bodied, medium carbonation. Right in the sweet spot feel and abv-wise.

O- It's a nice chocolate sweet stout. Not huge flavors, not a huge nose, but very well done with both. The local love of Berger cookies may have given this one unrealistic expectations, but this is a good beer.
