COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our version of a milk stout, originally named Fresh Powder Milk Stout. A milk stout is simply a stout brewed with an addition of Lactose, a non-fermentable milk sugar, used to create sweetness and a fuller body and mouthfeel in the beer. This is the sweetest stout that we brew, not only because of the addition of lactose, but because of the low hop bitterness, and higher residual sugar content. It is very full bodied beer, often perceived as thick and creamy.

Dark in both color and taste. Heavy malts dominate the palate. It’s a little fizzy on the tongue, but quite enjoyable.

A roasty aroma gives way to a strange lack of roastiness in the flavor. This is an easy drinking stout and that isn’t a bad thing. No way I’d mind having a bottle of this handed to me on a cool day.

Great stout on a cold winter night. Smooth and mellow. Nice aftertaste with an appropriate amount of sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice tasting milk stout. Definitely more sweetness in there than I expected but a nice hearty stout for a cold winter night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a dark black with a good dark brown head. This beer has a good dark roaster coffee with a lot of dark fruit flavors and ends bitter.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Rich, very dark brown coloured body, around 90% opaque with a thick three centimetre tall brown head. Aroma of rich roasted malt, oatmeal, vanilla, oak and some light sugars - strong and a nice relatively light nose. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt, milk, nuts, earth, caramel and a hint of licorice bitterness. Aftertaste shows a nice flavour of milk, vanilla, oak, brown sugar and some minor alcohol flavours. Overall, a good beer for the season - deep malt and richness, but a relatively mild finish and a good milky, sweet taste. Definitely worth trying if you can find this or if you like stouts - this is a good example of a sweet beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 02-November-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 23-January-2014.

Nice malty, cocoa aroma with some lactose sugar in there. Slight sweet, maybe even less than would expect from a milk stout. Nice full flavor and cocoa flavors and roasted malt. Nice milk stout for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours pretty thick-looking and turbid dark brownish black with minimal tan head. Nose is creamy lactosy black patent and choc malts, cacao, nuts. Tastes patent and chocolate malty, with a dark choc syrup flavor, some nuts, mild blackberry hints, and a smooth finish. Complex and full bodied, this one went well with a maduro cigar.

Dark, tan head, roasty aroma. Sweet malt, hints of cocoa and coffee. Lingering finish with a bit of sourness and sweetness. Interesting.

Not bad. Small head and very dark, could have a couple. But I had had a few when I rated this.
