COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sweet style of English Stout made with lactose from cowís milk. Lower in alcohol than our other offerings, but still possessing high amounts of rich, creamy flavors. Unfiltered. Originally produced by English brewers in the late 1800ís who touted a positive health benefit to those who consumed this elixir.

This pours a very dark brown color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is big with a robust and sweet scent. This is a thinner, sweet stout that delivers lots of flavors. Very robust and sweet that leaves a slight chalky after taste. Very good for the style.

Fresh bottle. Pours black with brown bordering. Aroma is light roast coffee, soy sauce. Taste is bitter, earthy. I'm not getting anything creamy or milky here. Slight bitter aftertaste. Perplexing.

On tap. Ours dark brown with beige head that sticks around. Almost no lacing. Pretty one dimensional...coffee bean in the nose . Similar in the taste with some lactose. I donít get why this rates so well.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is heavy roasted malts, coffee, mild milk sweetness and a mix of bitterness and acidity in the finish.

Okay example of the style. Predominantly coffee bean; the lactose evens it out but the bitterness sticks around quite a while. A little sour and/or too hoppy but nice carbonation.

Bottle. Had one that was sour, donít know what was up with that but we tried another and it was a lot better. Very dark brown pour with tan head. Smells of slight smoke and dark chocolate. Tastes of the same with a coffee finish. Smooth mouth feel. Nice stout.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours a black body with an egg white head and thin retention. Milk sugars, lactose sweetness, light chocolate malt tones, a touch of burnt malts and a light sugar tone. Creamy medium body soft carbonation. Decent milk stout.

The Dan Journal #353. Tasted 6/7/10. 12oz bottle. Dark and opaque with a brown hue. Beige head. Thick aromatics with hints of maple and coffee. Full bodied with a thick palate. Sticky and sweet palate. Good chocolate malts and a touch wood. Very nice!
