Seams Wicked Weed has the same base for several beers and changes their profile by minor notes. Milk and cookies, French toast, and Xibalba are all and the same to my palate with minor changes. Bottle date 11-7-17. Raisin is present but a flat after taste. Not getting any vanilla at all. A touch of cinnamon but just not living up to the beer I would expect. It's good in a pinch but better options available. Worth a try.

I'm having this shortly after enjoying French Toast Stout. The pour is a similarly dull, blackish-brown with an additional ruby hue on the edges and a slightly more formidable yet still moderate tan, frothy blanket.

This doesn't smell drastically different from French Toast, but there is a little more cinnamon, as well as a raisin sweetness. I also get that chocolate malt, and little to none of that astringent pine, or whatever it was that negatively influenced French Toast. There is actually, pleasantly, an element of crispy, toasted, brown-sugared oatmeal cookie. Wow.

Taste is smoother and slightly more decadent than French Toast, with raisin, cinnamon, and chocolate chip oatmeal cookie--this is hitting all the right notes without being overly forward or cloying with flavorings.

Milk & Cookies is still in beer territory, but for me it's more like a brown and less like a stout. Again, similar to French Toast, being lighter in body and feel than a good stout, with a thin, frothy fizz and a semi-dry finish.

I like it better than French Toast, definitively.

A smaller pour at a bottle share

It smells like cinnamon raisin cookie. There is a little bit of sweetness there, but mostly spices.

It tastes like it's described and smells. A nice balance between the slightly sour raisin and the vanilla milk sugar sweetness. It is more doughy and bread like than cookie, so a little heftier. The cinnamon is a nice compliment and never takes away from the rest of the flavors. There is no coffee at all to me.

Great beer. Nicely balanced flavors.

16.9 oz. bottled on 11.08.16

Pours black with a creamy tan foam head. Smells like chocolate, milk sugars, golden raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, toffee, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, toasted malts, coffee, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like chocolate, milk sugars, golden raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, toffee, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, toasted malts, coffee, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice imperial milk stout with golden raisins, cinnamon and vanilla.
