Nice smooth aroma. Pours very dark with little carbonation. Starts out as sweet vanilla and then sours to a more wood/bourbon/coffee flavor. I love that this is readily available because it's one of my favorites.

Bottle from Rayl101. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Aroma is alcohol, berry, vanilla, milk chocolate. Taste is sweet with lots of vanilla, oak and marshmallow. Slick on the palate with alcohol burn. I donít actually get the sense that this is a stout since the body is so thin. Good, nevertheless.

22oz bomber from FEUO. Pours dark and rich with a nice brown head. Quite nice looking. Very sweet aroma with a bit of booziness. Taste is very light, with tons of oak and sweetness. Very drinkable for being 10%. I am really enjoying this and Itís not extremely complex, but is doing the job on this 30 degree Orlando evening.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Surprised never reviewed. Pours a dark black with reddish-orange tints and a tan head. Aroma has vanilla and whiskey and lactose and faint roast. Taste is of sweet milky sugar, vanilla, some dark fruit and wood. Alcohol constantly present, which overwhelms the underlying flavors. Finishes sweet and alcoholly. As most New Holland offerings, more underwhelming than presented.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 (Bottle). Aroma is bourbon with deep brown complexion with fluffy tan head and lacing. Well roasted malt with oak and bourbon flavors with burning alcohol (but in a good way). Silky palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cracked this one open in time for valentines day. Poured thick, black, and syrupy. Nice mocha colored head. Aromas of chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Looks and smells awesome. More than anything I taste oak, vanilla, and bourbon. Limited chocolate flavor and a hint of coffee. Palate is slick. I have to say, the bourbon was a bit much for me. Still, obviously a well crafted stout. Maybe there was still bourbon left in the barrel when they filled it... ha

This was billed to me as the quintesential milk stout. I very much enjoyed it, however it was not the best ever. I smelled great, but wasnt as balanced as I was expecting, and little more bitter than I would have liked.

Bottle. This oneís for you Todd! Deep brown pour. Nose is cocoa powder, light coffee, some faint dark fruit, and a little oaky vanilla. Flavor is mildly sweet cocoa/chocolate and vanilla. Finishes with chocolate and light to moderate oak tanins. Pretty light and approachable for an imperial stout, with only a mild alcohol presence. Not bad.
