4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured pitched black into a tulip with a tan head dissipating quickly. Aroma has a nice bitter chocolate with a hint of coffee and roasted malts. I was not prepared for the amount of chocolate that was going to hit the tongue but the palate on this is incredible. A chocolate milk stout, without question. This beer is dominated by bittersweet chocolate, heat is detected well after the finish but so smooth for 8.5%. Mouthfeel is almost thick with a creamy finish.
2014 Bottle from partner. Dark Brown Pour no head. Chocolate nose. Taste chocolate and lactate like sort of chalky or maybe latent milk allergy off taste. Not my favorite. Iphonephan (7510) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2018

Aroma is milk chocolate, cherries and dark malts. The flavor is milk chocolate, dark malts, mild bourbon/liquor and a sweetish/warming alcoholic finish. kevinator (2887) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Milky and chocolate. Roasted malt with vanilla. Dark brown body with a medium weight and smooth. saltyseadog (82) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - NOV 25, 2017
12oz bottle from Urbandale Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Aromas of sweetened condensed milk, caramel, vanilla, milk chocolate, plums and a trace of damp earth. Pours oily brown with a thin cover of fizzy khaki head and a profusion of carbonation all over the glass. Flavors of light-roast coffee and sweet cream up front and caramel and toffee mid-palate, with a moderately long semi-sweet chocolate finish and a pleasant alcohol warmth as it hits bottom. Full-bodied with respectable weight in the mouth and a slight mouth-coating sweetness. A fine beer with very nice aromatics and range of flavors to match. That pricetag is discouraging, and it's not as pretty visually as my favorite beer I this style, but certainly on the right track. Thank you Odell Brewing Company!
