Fudge is an imperial milk stout brewed with an authentic mix of raw ingredients intended to emulate the flavor of chocolate fudge in a beer. By utilizing milk chocolate, lactose, and cocoa powder, we are able to coax flavors of melted milk chocolate, gooey chocolate fudge, and chocolate syrup out of this truly seasonal, decadent treat. Fudge is a confectionary treat through and through, and one we are quite proud to have produced a deliberately selected and utilized set of ingredients in harmony with our refined stout making process. Fudge is our endeavor to bring friends and family alike together this holiday season - enjoy!

Decent head production and retention.

Nose features some classic stout notes, along with the expected dose of chocolate. Cola, prune, caramel, toffee, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and cream.

A touch thin on the palate, given the aim to invoke chocolate fudge in a beer. Fairly regular milk stout notes stand strong, along with some extra chocolate, but nothing particularly strong or impressive. Additional notes of red grape, toffee, caramel, and leather.

While this is a tasty enough beer, I simply don't get the whole fudge thing. If it's truly meant to evoke chocolate fudge, I think it misses the mark.

Canned December 11, 2019. Appearance is pretty much like every other stout, with the only interesting item of note (at least to me) is the discrete yet persistent small center of carbonation that bubbles up from a single point of focus just off center from the middle of the glass. Almost like the bubbles are struggling to escape something very thick and have to band together to gain the collective strength to breach the surface.

Aroma is very sweet. It doesn't burst from the glass, but up close it's pleasant. Maybe a hair more lactose than I'd prefer, but that sweetness is mostly balanced from some nice underlying chocolate and faint roast notes.

Taste is better than I expected, with a little bite up front (whether from the cocoa or some roasted malts I can't say) doing a nice job of balancing out some underlying sweetness. I do get impressions of chocolate from this, but it's not all the way to fudge. Creamy and full feel, as expected.

Overall, good beer. I don't think I'd want to drink two back to back, but as a slow sipper on a Sunday morning, I'm enjoying it.
