Udder Domination Imperial Milk Stout – Dead Frog Brewery

From Aldergove’s Dead Frog Brewery comes their new “Udder Domination Imperial Milk Stout”.  The beer pours a black opaque colour with a light brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, chocolate, some espresso, milk and sweetness.  The flavour is of chocolate, mild roasted malts, some earth, espresso, milk and some sweetness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.9% with an IBU of 30.  While this is not an overly complex Imperial Stout it is still quite tasty and worth checking out if you find it in your local liquor store.
