This was a collaboration beer with Jester King. Imperial milk chocolate stout with oranges and dried tangerines. Sample pour at the brewery. Poured black with a little bit of head that faded quick. Smells like they used some kind of Belgian yeast mingled with some malt and a hint of baker's chocolate. I picked up a Belgian style yeast again on the front of the initial tasting, followed by a hint of bitter chocolate and then an orange like finish. If I wasn't picking up on what I call a Belgian yeast flavor, this would be a much better beer. Maybe it tastes better out of the bottle.

I had this beer on-tap in a snifter at Perennial in St. Louis.

Appearance: rich dark brown with a thin layer of brown foam. Good indeed.

Smell: boozy with chocolate, sweetness and maybe just a hint of orange. Good, but the alcohol could be toned down a little.

Taste: boozy, with a decent chocolate and orange flavor on the milk stout background. An interesting beer!

Mouthfeel: medium body with good carbonation and capital milk stout creaminess.

Overall: I like this beer a lot. I'd like it more with a little less overt booziness.

750ml bottle. Dark black body, one finger white head, short retention, no lacing. Smell is dark chocolate, a bit of milk chocolate as well as a bit of vanilla, touch of bitter cocoa. Flavour is dark chocolate with a bit of lactose, smooth creamy vanilla, orange zest, toasted grains, a bit of burnt malt with an odd astringent cocoa flavour throughout that does seem to detract some from the beer. It does provide a bit of balance, though maybe would have been better off without it. Medium-fuller bodied, lower carbonation, astringent finish with a touch of zest. Wanted to like this one more than I ended up doing so.
