Hugely overcarbonated and definitely infected.

Really disappointed in this one since it was received in a trade and I have no way to replace it. Only writing this review in hopes of warning others. This is from the most recent release in November 2015.

This bottle was infected. It poured like molasses with excessive carbonation. Occasionally large clumps poured out. Based upon seeing other reviews, this seems to be a recurring issue. I wouldn't mind giving it another chance if I had the opportunity.

Bomber into a snifter appears black in color with an excessive amount of brown head that fills the glass.

Aroma opens up with something that is quite tangy along with some vegetal matter, chocolate and roast. I dont even need to taste this to already know that something unintended is going on in this brew based off the foaming carbonation and now a sour smell.

The taste is as expected based on the initial impressions and not in a good way. Sourness is the leading trait of this and not much remains of a coffee milk stout. I cant drink more than a sip or 2 of this, its bad.

Light in body, excessively carbonated and obviously infected. The milks gone bad Charlie Murphy...

Looks like their were some infected bottles around. Looks like I was lucky enough to get a non one.
