Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a J. Wakefield Brewing OG teku glass.

A: Opaque, very dark brown to black, with a low amount of visible carbonation. A half-finger cap of tan head forms with decent retention.

S: Dark chocolate and roasted coffee up front – no surprise there. Cacao nibs and lactose sweetness, vanilla and heavily roasted malts. Notes of tobacco and malted milk balls. Nice.

T: Dark-roast coffee and cacao, vanilla and lactose. Dark malts with a fair amount of roasty bitterness. More drying tobacco under the sweet creamy lactose. It finishes near balanced, with lingering roasted coffee.

M: Overall a heavy body, but a little lighter than some milk stouts. Low carbonation but average for style. The alcohol presence is hidden quite well.

O: Pretty enjoyable. I don’t remember what I paid for it, but as a smaller format bottle that they still chose to wax, I'd imagine it was more than I’d pay for it again. But it’s a solid “imperial” milk stout with good chocolate/coffee balance and nice roastiness.

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a dense two finger light tan head which fades very slowly leaving some lacing
S: Smells of chocolate covered espresso beans and that's it
T: Taste is coffee and chocolate with some nice roasted malt notes. huge milk chocolate and coffee continue to be the highlight of this beer with some lactose sweetness. Swallow is more coffee and chocolate with a slight milky sweetness and lingering roasted malt notes.
M: This beer is one the medium side of things in body. Carbonation is adequate for the style as well while the beer has a slightly drying finish.
O: Overall this is probably the best of the series that I have tried. Great flavors and some decent complexity make this one an interesting drink. This one should become a regular offering over some of the others they have tried.

Look is near black with 2 fingers of dark khaki head.

Aroma is big coffee, chocolate and lactose. Nice.

Taste follows nose. Big dark coffee, some chocolate and then more coffee with some malt/lactose.

Feel is smooth and full.

Overall a nice take on an imperial milk stout. Glad I got the chance to try it.

500ml bottle. 2016 vintage. Appearance: Jet black, opaque, with a minimal khaki head. Aroma: Rich roasted coffee and mocha. Molasses and a slight hint of dark fruit Taste: Starts with a really rich malt sweetness and strong coffee roast that fades into dark chocolate and touch of toffee, only for the strong dark roast to kick back in on the swallow Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a touch of viscosity, and low carbonation. Finish: Roasted malt and coffee most prominent, with a bit of dark chocolate. Very malty, no real nuttiness apparent Overall: Really nice take on an imperial milk stout, with a dominant coffee roast and dark chocolate that isn’t bitter or acrid. Balances well against the sweetness of the malt and lactose

L: Pretty dark and smooth, somewhere between dark brown and black, with a good amount of tan head that lasted.
S: This smells awesome, coffee and chocolate are huge up front and then some other sweet smells come through. A hint of carmel sweet milk at the end.
T: A lot of chocolate to start followed by coffee and some carmel, the finish to me is a milk flavored that I loved.
F: Solidly thick for a milk stout, I tend to think milk stouts are too thin in general, but this one was smooth and thicker than expected.
O: Wow! I really loved this one, definitely going to want more of this. All the flavors were there and nothing overpowering the others.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Rich brown with a tan one finger head that lingered. Thick lacing.

S: Lots of chocolate, cocoa and espresso.

T: A lot like Wake N Bake...until you let it warm a bit. Then the flavors enhance a hundred-fold. Sweet, mellow, robust, milky, creamy. Caramel and hazelnut collide with espresso goodness.

M: Medium with medium creamy carbonation.

O: Sublime but pricey. A can of Moo Hoo is almost as good and a lot less expensive.

Vintage pour, great creamy head and retention. Aroma has some delicate mild espresso with some soft milk lactose and earthy hazelnut. Flavor is also pretty well on the soft side, which is fine as far as it goes. The espresso is most prevalent upfront and there is some milk chocolate through the mid-palate along with some medium toasted malt. Good, just a bit faded. Mouthfeel is velvety and creamy.
