look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle into a Guinness pint glass

A- Nearly opaque, black/dark brown, with about an inch and a half of toffee-colored head, strong lacing.

S- Hoppy for a stout; sweet, fruity bourbon notes; rich, malty character; hints of cream soda.

T- VERY creamy, sweet on the back with hints of bourbon. Definitely hoppy as milk stouts go, but not overly so. Sweet espresso finish.

MF- Very thick, almost syrupy. Smooth drinking, with notable carbonation.

D- Smooth, rich, and heavy. Creaminess stands out above all else. Coffee aftertaste comes out more as it warms.

Pours a dark and cloudy brown, topped by a fleeting beige head, finally just some resiny streaks on glass and a couple amoebae floating on surface.

The smell is dark caramel, sharp rye whiskey, oak, coffee, vanilla, and a warm and spicy alcohol vapor aroma holding it together. Stunning

The taste is a full frontal mixed martial arts attack of rye whiskey, dark caramel, sweet oakiness, tannic oakiness, alcohol warhead, vanilla, and a finish of roasty malt, light bitter, spicy alcohol, floral hints, and a coffee note to carry it into its own infinity of flavor. This may have Mother's Milk as its base beer, but this is not your mother's Mother's Milk, this is freaking huge.

Mouthfeel is very full bodied, low carb., drinks as easily as a stout this big is capable, has an astoundingly delicious finish. Hard to rate this to style, as this beer is a style of its own.

Drinkability is hard to rate. Thirst quenching? Hardly. A complex and delicious sipper that beckons you to the next taste? Definitely.

Impression: Not likely you will have the chance to try this, but if you do grab the chance, this beer fucking rocks.
