L- Pours a one finger headed stout with a dark, almost jet black appearance. The head dissipates rather quickly, but sticks around enough to not be offensive on the eye. Quite nice to look at, to be honest.
S- Malty chocolate sweetness sets itself apart up front. This is followed by a dairy like nuggety freshness and savory aroma. I get hints of whiskey and rye, vanilla and toffee. Another strange, but pleasant pick up is some tart cherry. Pretty interesting and rewarding smell.
T- The flavor is exactly what I wanted and hoped for. Very sweet with obvious hints of milk chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, toffee and vanilla up front. As I let the beer sit on the tongue, I get some nuttiness, toasted oats and stone fruit as well. Very nice. The sweetness isn't over bearing and the hints of each flavor combined is rewarding with each sip. A slight bitterness is present at the end. And I don't know if it's just me, but I get a hint of earthiness.
F- Medium bodied. Fresh, lively but soft carbonation.
O- I would give this beer an award if I could. Wonderfully crafted and loved at every sip. I can't say enough complements about Lugene. Sad to hear that the beer is retired, but I'm glad I got to savor it at this moment. Happy I'm starting off my year of beer reviews with such a winner. Cheers!

The appearance was a pure dark brown closer to black color. One finger off white foamy head tries to cling but slides for the most part. The smell was a super nice arrangement of bitter coffee to smooth milk chocolate. The taste was mainly sweet milk chocolate enticing the taste buds to indulge in more of this luscious brew. Light chocolate to coffee aftertaste leading to a nice somewhat dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body, not that sessionable but I wasn’t expecting it to be considering the style. Carbonated exactly how a milk sweet Stout should be. It has one the smoothest and creaminest mouthfuls one could ever ask for from a milk sweet stout. Overall, very nicely done milk/sweet stout.

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.
