Bottle. Pours black with a minimal head. Aromas of lactose, rich roasted malts, black licorice. The imperial/milk stout hybrid is clear from the smell. Taste is very rich and sweet. Malts, chocolate, vanilla, some coffee bitterness. Medium bodied, silky/creamy mouthfeel, and soft carbonation.

In my secret santa box. Very dark brown, medium head. Aroma is unassuming, standard stout stuff, not bad. Creamy, oily mouthfeel. Sweet. Like milk chocolate. Really good.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with nice creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, and soft creaminess. Flavor is super sweet chocolate, and a very rich creamy texture, bitter coffee finish. Exactly what you’d expect from an imperial milk Stout. Pretty awesome. Full bodies and creamy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained light beige head, with Belgian lacing, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is moderate chocolate, light cocoa, no coffee from the roasted malts, light toffee/caramel minimal hops balance to the malts......taste is slight lactose sweetness, with chocolate, cocoa, light vanilla, toffee/caramel, with very mild hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, sticky, alcohol warmth present, creamy carbonation, no acid. This is a sweet, chocolate heavy, dessert like Imperial Stout. It is not as sweet as some, is less complex than others, but is a pleasant enough beer. BJCP 7/3/15/4/6

Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with creamy brown head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is cola, toffee, prunes, chocolate, soy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by an astringent bitterness. Overall this is a decent brew.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of lactose, dark sugars, toffee, nice cocoa, roasted notes, nice vanilla in there as well, some slight spice notes. Taste had a mix of nice vanilla, dark cocoa, coffee, hints of lactose and caramel in there, spice notes, finishing sweet, pretty nice.
