From BeerAdvocate Magazine #90 (July 2014):

Roasty, Smooth, Cocoa, Thick

The subtlety of extreme beer, here we have a robust sweet stouts brewed with not only lactose and Cacao nibs but with Berger cookies. These are simple but tasty shortbread style cookies with a thick layer of chocolate on top, now think of these brewed in a stout and then pairing those cookied with the beer. A beautiful thing.

While at first I thought it was a total gimmick, I'm slowly coming around to this offering (full disclosure: I love Berger cookies). Pours a pitch black with a minimum amount of mocha-colored head. Smells of your typical stout, albeit with just a bit of burned cocoa to it. Tastes of heavily toasted malts, burned cocoa (lingers a bit), and a tiny bit of a dark bitterness you'd expect in a stout. Mouthfeel is nice, but would be *ideal* with a nitro offering. While it doesn't taste like an actual Berger cookie fudge icing-bomb, the chocolate is unmistakeable. Not bad for a nightcap (with an actual Berger cookie, of course).

Chocolate, vanilla, Berger Cookies: What's not to like??? Only one problem - these things exist on the label only. Pours a jet black color: Head a bit weak. Decent thickness/creamy mouthfeel though with some lacing. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Taste is dry, bitter: Basically a generic Guinness; definitely not sweet; definitely not milk stout. The Perfect Pour in Columbia more or less giving this stuff away as an overstock, which now makes sense. Nice idea: failed execution.

Did you buy the milk stout? yeah you did. But it has COOKIES and it's from BALMER HON! Let's see what gives?

Boy this is real dark and has a very inky pour. Nearly black but just a hint of brown to it. Two finger barely tall for the head, very light tan and coffee brown. Manages a good thin puck and collar while settling.

Bit of lactose like souring going on, or possible mild acrid quality, but nothing horid. Milk and dark chocolate starts to dominate as it warms, a bit of chewy quality also. Fairly decent.

Palate brings a nice mild and milky texture. Fairly balanced with a soft roast and mild bitterness. Not particularly sweet but a hint of bakers like chocolate in the mid palate a bit. Finishes a little dry, much of the sourness hinted on the nose doesn't luckily come through on the palate. A bit of playful carbonation but the fizzy quality has some jarring to it.

Overall fairly decent and ok.

I've had this been on tap and out of the bottle. I prefer it on tap but it's excellent both ways. I could drink this stuff every day and it's one of the best chocolate stout beers out there. People have said it doesn't taste like a Berger cookie but I think the chocolate part does and it's well balanced with the vanilla
