    I don't think this qualifies as a sweet/milk stout.

    Burning alive might be a little extreme, it's just not what OP was asking for.

    It's not a Milk/Sweet Stout.

    Mogli is an Imperial Porter with chocolate.

    You havent had it yet? Just open it, if you love it theres plenty on shelves still. If not, then its not worth aging.

    I've had it a few times. I was given one as a gift a few months back and figured I'd see how it does with some age. I think it's great but wanted to give it a shot and see what happened.

    Only if it's barrel aged and the bottle is dipped in wax.

    When I was first introduced to it, the name led me to think that it's a Milk/Sweet Stout :slight_smile:

    It's definitely sweet for a BA Double Stout, there's no doubt about it. It's a good beer. Not the right beer for the OP's question, for sure, though.

    IMO it's more of an Old Ale-English Barleywine-Quad than an Imperial Stout that's been barrel aged. On the other hand BCBS and the variants are very sweet too.

    Remy's Pappy says it is a double stout/RIS, but it really came off as a BA sweet stout

    Sweet horizon is hands down my favorite desert beer. It's thick, rich & full of chocolate, vanilla & bourbon notes.

    Keegan Ales Bourbon Barrel Mothers Milk Stout. Amazing creation, wish they would make it more often.

    Already mentioned but worth repeating is CCB Imperial Sweet Stout aged in Cognac Barrels. Best milk stout I have tried for sure.

    Black Xantus is pretty good. Not sure if classified as milk stout, but does taste like it.
