4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black with a thin white head. Aroma is chocolate with roasted malt. Flavor is rich, dark chocolate with a pleasantly bitter roasted malt to balance. Decadent and delicious, especially with dessert.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very good chocolate stout overall. Pours extremely black with a thin dark brown head. Aroma is of milk chocolate, brown sugar, and caramel.
Taste is smooth with a very very light hops or coffee bitterness that doesn’t linger. Guessing most of the velvety texture is due go lack of carbonation. Contrary to the aroma, this beer is one I’d classify as sweet. Yes there is a sweetness, but it’s highly drinkable. Definitely get the chocolate and toffee flavors coming through.
I’m semi clueless with the slight bitterness. It’s almost a subtle spice causing the flavor.
This is a great beer to try. Not a traditional chocolate stout when comparing to others I’ve tried but still tasty. One of Brash ’s best.

Bottle. Thick dark black pour, nice bit of lacing and a ring of carbonation with a very big aroma of chocolate. Flavor is silky, rich sweet milk and dark chocolate, hints of nuts and just a little peat. Almost a little too sweet, but pretty solid nonetheless.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with thin, caramel brown head. Aroma is loaded with milk chocolate, nutty notes, some roast, a little char and dark caramel. Flavor chocolate and char up front, roast, roasted nuts, caramel, lactose, a little coffee, earthy grain and light piney hops to the finish. Medium to heavy body creamy to oily entry, light carbonation slightly sticky, still oily finish. Really good stuff overall. Gets a little boozy and too charred as it warms. I like a decent amount of char in my milk stouts too.

Dark black pour at the Happy Gnome. Lots of huge chocolate character in this one, perhaps a little more chocolate bitterness than I would expect in an ’imperial chocolate milk stout’ but it was quite nice and would get it again for sure.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Good chocolatey roasty imp stout. Creamy mouth. A bit boozy. I think it would be better at a lower than 10% ABV. Overall, this is good. I’d drink it again if it were available in Texas. Glad it was suggested to me by the guys at RSVP in Portland, ME. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
