Brash Brewing Company Smoglifter Imperial Chocolate Milk Stout – Milk / Sweet Stout at 10% ABV

Brash Brewing Company Smoglifter Imperial Chocolate Milk Stout Milk / Sweet Stout at 10% ABV (C$9.64 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, bottle date 20-Oct-2014)

Appearance: nearly solid black with one finger of dense mocha head, excellent retention and decent lacing. (4/5) Aroma: chocolate, mild coffee, roasty malts, some dark fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: full body tending a little to the watery, low carbonation, warming finish. (4/5)

I’m not sure it’s “making love to your mouth like a horny sorority girl”, but it’ll do. The body seems viscous at the outset, but turns slightly watery midway. The bitterness does pretty well at balancing the sweetness, but it lingers a little too much, making for a little bit of an edge to the finish. Still pretty good, though! (16/20)
