Unfortunately, I had this aged a year, and I do not know how it would taste fresh. That being said, it was very enjoyable. I just wish there was more chocolate in it for something calling itself an imperial chocolate milk stout.

Some nice milk chocolate notes in the nose with subtle hints of coffee and a strong whiff of roasted malt character.

Flavor is the same as the smell minus the chocolate. The toasted malt and coffee vie for presence to make a nice, subtly sweet brew that screams balance

Pours a beautiful black with a thin caramel head. Mouthfeel is nice and full and more- than-medium thickness

Found this beer at some store or other in Grand Rapids. Not familiar with this brewery. Poured into North Coast tulip.

A - Jet black, with tan head which receded awfully quickly, leaving no lacing. Entirely opaque.

S - Smoky chocolate, cocoa nibs

T - Plenty of bitterness, with an initial richness brought on by the lactose which is very pleasant. However, the initial flavour writes cheques which the body can't cash - fades quickly, and leaves very little but nondescript bitterness on the finish.

M - This is the only thing really holding the beer up. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous, with ideal carbonation. I suspect any impression of richness in the taste owes a lot to the mouthfeel of this brew.

O - Disappointing for the price. A study in viscosity, and not much else. I will not purchase this again.
