COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We are proud offer one of the few surviving examples of this traditional English style sweet stout. A bold, dark ale bursting with roasted barley dryness and mellowed by hints of chocolate and coffee.

Deep brown hue with diminishing tan head and some lace. The aroma hints of coffee, mocha, caramel, hazelnut, aromatic hops, and sour fruits. The taste is expectly lactic and slightly sour on top of the sweet malts and mild bitterness. Undertones of coffee and grapefruit. The finihs is sour and bitter. The mouthfeel is thin and lively. This is not creamy as expected with a milk stout, more akin to a porter than sweet stout. Still quaffabel and worthy of a try. Thanks Mike (Tidiaguy) for the bottle.

Milk stout, strange name. It says it is brewed with lactose but It doesn't have a milk taste that I can detect. It pours out dark and thin with a small white head. Taste is burnt almost like a cinder or fire bock. This beer is unique but does not have the rich coffee, nut or carmel flavors, I look for in a stout. This beer is just alright. I will probably never have it agian.

This isn't the best sweet stout I have had. It is smoother than alot of stouts, and it still has the stout taste. It is the milky aftertaste that keeps this from being a great brew.

Not quite as good as I had expected. It has a somewhat flat mouthfeel. The overall stout taste is there and the color and aroma are great, but something is stopping this from being a well rounded brew.

Poured a thick dark brown with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma was fairly mild with hints of roasted coffee and chocolate. Nice full mouthfeel. Slightly sweet with chocolate and cocoa coming through. This was a decent beer.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2004 Feb 2004: 12 oz bottle courtesy of Mike (Tidiaguy). Very thick, viscous-looking, much lacing in the glass, medium lasting brownish head. Expected milk-chocolate nose, nice but simple. Flavor very, very similar to the Vt Pub Imperial I just had -- but this has more body, is less cloying in the sweetness, and has some faint but lovely herbal qualities that complement the overall sweet, smooth chocolaty feel. Good sweet stout.

May 2004, draft at the brewpub. Much stronger nose this time, bit stronger on the milk chocolaty flavor...really great sweet stout.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2006 Milk Stout is truely a unique beer. To be made with milk is an incredible accomplishment but for it to taste this good, rediculous. It gets a 20/20 impression because it is the best beer you can get for your dollar ($23/case). Call it a "ratebeer best buy". Frankly, Amish people can do more than just raise barns.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Still my favorite local brew. I have to have at least one whenever I swing by the ole brewery. Sweet, chocolately, roasted malt taste. Very smooth going down. Maybe just a tad on the thin side, but still awesome nonetheless. Goes sour pretty quick so try to get one as fresh as possible!
