A sweet style of English Stout made with lactose from cow’s 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 1800’s who touted a positive health benefit to those who consumed this elixir.

Wife got this for me when in WI. Milk and farm house aroma. Brown body with tan head. Flavor of roasted malt with creamy milk texture. Decent brew.

madvike (3205) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Bottle - Pours deep black with no head, and looks pretty thin when held up to the light. The smell is decent, with smoke, beef jerky, coffee, and lactose, but you really have to get your nose in there to smell it. Taste is a little better, with smoke, roasty notes, and a touch of lactose. It’s smooth, with some hops and bitter roastiness on the finish. Medium bodied and pleasant, but after I finished it, I didn’t really want another. Decent.

12 oz bottle
I am kicking myself for not trying this when I had the chance in Wisconsin. Fortunately noncaloric came through and sent me a pair of bottles. If I find more when passing through the state I may just have to pick them up. Lake Louie doesn’t do much outside their regular rotation but they do them very well.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep black body was graced by a solid tan head. Smoky marshmellows, oatmeal, licorice, and other sweet aspects created an inviting air.

Flavor / Palate - With the light smokiness this instantly set itself apart from other sweet stouts. The fluid mouthfeel reminded me of oatmeal, ash, and vanilla cocoa. The milk comes through strongest in the finish. Leaving the throat refreshed this beer almost demands that you keep drinking it until you have none left. Check it out if you are a fan of well made craft beers from regional masters.

Courtesy of SeaBass. Pours dark brown with thin tan head. The aroma is roasty malts, some oak, pine hops, burnt malts and black licorice. Seems like a hodgepodge of notes but they seem to come together for a pleasing aromatic quality. The taste feels thin to start bringing in notes of nearly burnt malts, mild roasted malt astringency and very mild lactose. It ends with solid roasted malt notes.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Bottle, courtesy sebletitje. Dark brownish pour, with a creamy tan head, and wet braids of lacing on the glass. Nose is lactose, roast and coffee, some chocolate. Flavor has coffee, lactose, dry grainy finish, and some dry toast. Smooth, thin body. Lacking flavor compared to the nose, but still drinkable.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Just bought this a few days ago, and im glad i did. Pours a thick dark motor oil black colour with no head. No head with just traces of tan lace. Aroma is immediately coffee on the nose, dark roasted malts and maybe some rubber?? Vanilla-y on the palate, soft caramel and slight but noticeable smokiness throughout. Another nice beer all around from Tom and the dudes at Lake Louie.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Nice aroma, chocolate and smoke. Pours a not-quite-opaque dark brown, minimal head. Solid roast malt backbone with a decidedly chocolate bent, only slightly sweet, smoke and a little dust on the finish. Coarse, lively mouthfeel on the front, becoming very smooth on the swallow. Eminently drinkable.
