4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz. bottle. Unsurprising very dark pour with a thin tan head. Lite chocolate nose with some roast malts in the background. Creamy body. Medium sweet milk chocolate, followed by hazelnut flavors. Its a sweet stout for sure, but not too sweet. Can’t taste the hops, however they balance this from being too sweet. Same flavors continue into the aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall this beer should only be drank at certain times, it is sweet, and if this was poured on a summer day instead of a cold night night like now, it would not be as enjoyable.

Pretty close to black with a great big tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, roast, and raisin. Tastes like bittersweet chocolate and roast. Nice creamy body with mellow carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Reviewed from notes. From my AZ trip.
The appearance was a pure dark brown closer to black color. One finger off white foamy head tries to cling but slides for the most part.
The smell was a super nice arrangement of bitter coffee to smooth milk chocolate.
The taste was mainly sweet milk chocolate enticing the taste buds to indulge in more of this luscious brew. Light chocolate to coffee aftertaste leading to a nice somewhat dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body, not that sessionable but I wasn’t expecting it to be considering the style. Carbonated exactly how a milk sweet Stout should be. It has one the smoothest and creaminest mouthfuls one could ever ask for from a milk sweet stout.
Overall, this would be my wow beer of my Arizona trip and am fantastically amazed and settled in knowing that I would have this again in a heartbeat

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Smells strongly of milk chocolate. Taste is strongly sweet, milk chocolate, and hints of dark chocolate. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, ODell Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout finishes with a lingering semi sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown to black pour with a small tan head. The aroma has quite a bit of chocolate as well as some roasted malt and cream notes. The flavor is more of the same with a few additions. I get some heavy, sweet chocolate milk notes. There is also a good bit of coffee thrown in to the flavor. I get some creamy, lactose notes as well as some roasted malt. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer, glad I got to try it and glad to have Odell here in Texas.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Not bad. A little bourbany. Little bubbly. Its drinkable. Chocolaty, dark chocolate that is. I was getting over a flu, so..........?

Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown-black with a high chocolate-brown head that disappeared faster than a politician’s ethics. Nose is baking chocolate, coffee, raisins -- and lettuce. (Lettuce?) Much sweeter than it smells; rich chocolate, really tasty. Round and creamy on the palate; the milk is center stage. Very good.

Draught > Common Table. Great beer. The best sweet stout I’ve ever had, easily. Just the right amount of chocolate and the right amount of lactose. Our average local breweries(Lakewood and 903) can learn a big lesson from this one. Sneaky big at 8.5%! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
