3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kuhnhenn Brewpub. 11:47 black with a creamy brown ring atop and sticky lace. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, dark roasted malts and Hersheys syrup. Taste a bit like Hershey’s syrup too with cocoa, roasted malt, mocha, light fruit and some darker malts. Zinde would like this, while not bad, a touch too cloying for me.

Draft. Sweet and rich milk stout... Almost just missing the coffee / roasted for more balance. Thick, creamy ... Just sweet.

Slightly thin in the body but cocoa and sweetness are present, very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Kuhnhenn for the Winter Solstice. The pour is a nice black with a darker khaki colored head that quickly disappears leaving minimal lace. The aroma is very sweet. With a nice roasty character and a little bit of chocolate. Maybe some coffee as well. The flavor is much of the same. Still sweet. The mouth feel is just a little thin, but the flavor lingers in a wonderful fashion.

Bottle thanks to JStax ! Pours a rich burnt umber color with a huge billowing khaki foam... four plus fingers and three pours to get it to settle enough to sip. Nose is lots of milk chocolate, roasted malt, cake and oreo cookies. The palate follows with lots of sweet chocolate notes a tangy bitter undertone and a long roasty finish. Creamy body with a slightly sticky finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from a 12oz bottle, 2013 vintage. Black color. Thin brown head. Some loose bits and ropes of lace. Roasty nose, some coffee. Bigger bitter roast and coffee character. Some dark chocolate. Light bite in the finish. Medium to bigger body. Light carbonation, lightly dry finish. Interesting imperial stout... Seems more russian style than milk, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter (shared by dudeabide). Looks good; an opaque brownish black with fluffy tan head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; smooth dark malt and pleasant roast. Tastes like it smells with a sweet backbone. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased at the Blueberry Eiabock release. Poured into my bourbon county tulip. Pours an ominous black in color with maybe a quarter fingers worth of off-white head. Nose is comprised of chocolate, vanilla bean, and lactose. Vanilla dies down in the flavor and this is more of a traditional milk stout. Prominent chocolate and lactose. Mouthfeel is light and oily, acrid, with gentle carbonation, and a lingering finish. Pretty good milk stout, glad I only bought 2 though.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle graciously cracked by someone at best western legendary 2 night tasting. Poured thick and murky like fine mud. Light creamy lacing and head. Full flavors and scent of vanilla beans, chocolate, quick and milk, nuts, malt and sweet bread. Mouthfeel was about medium with lasting finish. Better than miloko and moo hoo guys. Excellent beer from the Kuhnhenn team.
