This is an excellent stout. Dark as night, packed with milk chocolate flavor, and high enough alcohol to really get your attention. Many stouts are bitter, but this one is not. Available in four-packs and a bit more expensive than most similar beers, but very much worth it.

Fairly light milk stout, very drinkable—even, I'd think, on a warm evening—but, best of all, the layers of chocolate shine through much clearer and cleaner than many other chocolate-premised stouts I've had. Nice sweetness, toeing the line nicely between clean and cloying—and aided in this by the very detectable presence of the chocolate notes and their attendant bitterness. Not much nose, outside of dry malty sugars and the faintest hint of lactose carried though out of the tulip's curve. Very dark, and slightly mahogany-brown when held to light, this somewhat still, light mouth-feel stout seems to fairly well achieve its ends—though I think, given the sweetness, it'd pair much better with a hunk of meat than a dessert.

Thick and dark with a nice amber head, though it doesn't stay around very long. This is the best chocolate stout I have had to date, and my personal favorite beer as of yet. Odell does it right. My only problem with this beer is that it is a 4 pack seasonal :(...
