COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We added a generous amount of milk sugar to this black beer to create mild sweetness and fuller body. Black, medium-full bodied with hints of malted-milk chocolate goodness! Milk Stouts originated in England and were seen as being so wholesome and nutritious that they were often prescribed to nursing mothers and convalescents.

ben4321 (5490) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12

Aroma: This one has a nose of milk chocolate, coffee, cream, and just a drop of oat
Appearance: It has a brown-black colored pour with a brown head and some creamy lace
Flavor: The flavor of this beer is medium sweet, medium roasty, and a little bit bitter too
Palate: This one feels pretty creamy, it has a medium body, a soft carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: This was the mystery beer of the day at the brew pub, and I thought it was a pretty solid example of this style. It isn’t a special beer, but it is quite solid with a nice mouthfeel.
