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.

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.
