COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A limited release from Atlantic Brewing celebrating Maine’s number one spirit. We brewed a stout using milk sugar in addition to barley malts. We then added fresh roasted coffee from our local roaster, Crooked Porch Coffee of Bar Harbor, Maine. Finally, a touch of natural Madagascar vanilla yields a gentle sweetness and creaminess to the brew.

From the 650 ml bottle. No dates or lot number that I can see. The pour is deep black with a lingering beige tan head. Nice coffee grounds and vanilla aromas mingle with softly toasted dark malts. But also a tad soapy. Medium and creamy body. The taste also has a nice roasted, coffee, and vanilla flavor as promised. Low if any bitterness. Very pleasant drinking.

Rcvd in trade. The appearance is a dark brown colored body almost close to black with a two finger white to almost off-white foamy head that dies at a nice pace leaving a decent amount of foamy lacing in its wake. The smell is a fair amount of espresso coffee beans up front dosed with some nice light vanilla creaminess that comes through slightly roasty. The taste is mainly sweet and roasty but an underlying gentle bitterness adds into the flavoring from the espresso. The aftertaste has a sweet roasty espresso and slightly vanilla with a quick dry finish. The palate is about at a medium with a slight sessionable quality to it. Carbonation runs really smooth as it rolls over my mouth and tongue. Overall, I say this is a pretty good milk/sweet stout with a nice added coffee flavoring to add to its complexity. I would have this again if it was in my distribution, until then, this is definitely worthy of seeking out if you live in New England area.

On draught at Sonny’s, pours dark blackish brown with a finger of head. Nose is nutty coffee, almond, cocoa, creamer. Taste is dusty cocoa, ash, coffee, nutty, a little thin. Finish is ashy coffee, some chocolate cake, and cream. Fine, but nothing too exciting.

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Very dark, opaque brown color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Strong vanilla nose and flavor is vanilla and baked chocolate. $6.00 for a 22oz bottle from Tullys Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Lukaduke (2000) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a slightly translucent deep umber color with two plus fingers of gaseous khaki foam. The nose is big and sweet with tons of sweet vanilla, coffee bean and some malted milk. The palate follows and taste like the inside of an oreo cookie... lots of lactic maltiness, sweet vanilla bean and a bit of bitter coffee on the back end. Pretty damn tasty a little over done on the vanilla and a bit of chalkiness lingers but a tasty dessert beer at a low abv !

Draft at beer fest. Pours near black with a small off white head. The aroma has a lot of coffee grinds, light chocolate. The taste is sweet coffee but a bit watery.

The beer pours a coffee black with hints of brown. The beer pours with a small head of tanning white bubbles but that quickly fizzles to hardly even a scrim. In body the beer is too dark for the eye to penetrate. On the nose the beer smells richly of vanilla and light to medium roast coffee with milk chocolate blended in. Light toasted and roasted malts play out beneath thicker vanilla and coffee. This beer smells very nice. On the tongue the beer tastes sweet and then roasted bitter. Smooth, lactic acidity plays on the middle of the palate. The finish dries out nicely on the tongue. In flavor, the beer begins as rich milk chocolate, moving towards sweet, light roast coffee with rich vanilla syrup mixed in. The vanilla is very nice in this beer but I wish it was a little stronger as it plays a little lightly with the coffee. The finish is beautifully vanilla with light touches of coffee and creamy chocolate, which moves over the taste buds for a while. Slight saltiness can also be sensed. In all it tastes like vanilla and chocolate milk. In the mouth, the beer feels on the heavy side of medium with a very soft chewiness alongside the traditional silky smooth feel that you expect from a milk stout. This beer does have a little bit of a rougher edge than the average milk stout, but makes up for it in flavor. The mouth is left wet with saliva and a light dryness. Overall, this is a lovely coffee and vanilla milk stout. I want a little bit more vanilla and roast in the flavor profile, and I wanted much more of a head on this beer, but honestly it is very balanced and delicious on the tongue. A beer to try.

By far the best beer I had at Atlantic. Really bold vanilla flavor and aroma dominates the coffee and light bourbon. Tasty and roasty for the low abv. Surprisingly good and flavorful.
