4.46/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: very dark. Some ruby highlights when to light. Plush mocha head on the pour that mostly subsides. Messy, clingy lacing.
Smell: as advertised, chocolate, vanilla, and hints of bourbon.
Taste: like the nose. Very easy drinker. Mellow but rich.

Brew: The Bruery- All The Chocolate Cows

Intro: 12 oz. poured into a tulip glass. Had on tap. Shared with a friend.

Appearance: Pitch black, Moderate head maybe 1 inch. Moderate lacing as I drank

Smell: Barrel is upfront followed by chocolate and finally vanilla.

Taste: Followed the smell. Heavy on the chocolate which is fine. Smooth, milky aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth to medium full mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Drink: Smooth and creamy, almost like drinking chocolate milk with a little alcohol

Conclusion: This was enjoyable, however, we had 2 drinks this night and this came up second. Still enjoyable though.

Sweet milk chocolate malty and vanilla bourbon barrel nose on this one! Taste follows with smooth and creamy milk chocolate upfront...and then a vanilla, slightly boozy barrel finish. This is well-balanced and they nailed what they were going for here! Tasty!

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a dense and slightly rocky finger of dark tan head which fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of a lot of chocolate with some barrel notes, along with some vanilla, and roasted malts
T: Taste is chocolate and vanilla up front with some oak and caramel from the barrel, a little roasted malts with some definite sweetness from the lactose. On the swallow there's more bourbon barrel, chocolate, and vanilla, with some lingering roasted malts with a slight nutty quality.
M: This beer has a fairly full and creamy body from the residual sugars. Carbonation is there but it isn't prominent while the beer has a drying finish due to the ABV.
O: Overall this is a really tasty beer. It has some good complexity and the alcohol is fairly well hidden for the ABV. This is one that I wouldn't mind seeing come back as it tastes similar to Chocolate Rain with a thicker mouthfeel and less ABV.

4.34/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Very dark brown bordering on black with a modest sized dark beige head which gradually faded to a ring. A good looking Imperial Stout.

Smell: Prominent chocolate and Bourbon notes, followed by moderate brown sugar notes.

Taste: The chocolate notes and Bourbon from the nose appear front and center in the taste profile which starts off with a bit of initial sweetness. I also get brown sugar and moderate vanilla notes. The beer finishes slightly sweet which has been the case with all the milk stouts I've had.

Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation that's appropriate for the beer. It wouldn't hurt if the beer were a bit fuller in body but not bad.

Overall: A tasty Imperial Milk Stout. The chocolate (cacao), Bourbon and vanilla play well together. A bit sweet but tasty.

So much chocolate. Oh my, oh dear, holy cow. I'm drowning in chocolate, which is a good thing in this case. Might be the chocolatiest stout I've ever had.
