This is my favorite beer. The worst thing about it--it's a seasonal, available only about 2 months out of the year where I live in El Paso.

This one literally tastes like chocolate milk with a slight bitter burn on the finish. It's really nice and strangely refreshing for a dark beer, although there is no balance.

Pours pitch black with a finger width foamy head. Retention and lacing are both good. Has a more faint aroma than most stouts. More roasted malts with hints of coffee and some chocolate. Has a very silky smooth taste with roasted malts up front. From there, if is almost like milk chocolate is moving along your tongue. There is mild coffee bitterness at the end. More heavy bodied with moderate carbonation. It is a very enjoyable beer.

Odell Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout, 8.5% ABV, 18 IBU. Pours moderate (not thick, not thin), opaque, almost no head, smells chocolate. Taste is chocolate, smooth, not bitter, a bit sweet. Mouthfeel is short of chewy. I found a new one for my favorites list.

It's a milk chocolate shake in a beer. Nuff said

I'm already filled with dessert, but just for the heck of it, let's cap it off with this dessert like beverage. Onto the beer:

Ink black colored and topped with an espresso tanned head with solid retention on top. I smell some fruity booze here, some cocoa, and vague fruity esters. It certainly has that Imperial Stout strength to it.

Imperial Stout Meats milk chocolate
The beer itself is quite smooth in texture with a light buzz of booze. Sweet milk chocolate and cherries are all wrapped up in a very smooth liquid that's full-bodied.

I think I've had enough dessert for tonight. Until next time...
