Wow, not at all over rated. The flagship of this brewery.
An English style sweet stout. Both bold and dark.
An ale where you can taste the barley and hints of chocolate and coffee.
The first taste was like cough syrup! Then it settled in.
Taste the lactose! A funny beer, unique.

12 ounce bottle. Translucent black color has a minimal tan head that disapates quickly. Aroma has a roasted malt and mocha nuance. Reminiscent of Cocoa Puffs cereal. Flavor follows the nose with a nod toward Oveltine and " Black Coffee In Bed". There is an underlying creamy milk chocolate character here. Easily drinkable and quite tasty. Like a Tootsie Roll in a glass.

Pours black, big tan head. Sweet toffee, caramel aroma, maybe some cocoa. Taste is like a cappuccino or dark coffee with some hint of cream.

Rated from old notes. Very black, minimal head retention. Somewhat light bodied for a stout. Milky aftertaste reflects addition of lactose. Good drink overall.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sterling VA. Dark brown with next to no head. Sweetish throughout, with some prune and touch of chocolate. Solid, if unexciting, drinking.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is use motor oil black, very cool. The head is a very dark tan head. The aroma is full of malt and matches the appearance perfectly. The flavor is creamy roasted malt, a fantastic flavor. Overall, an outstanding beer.

Tastes like chocolate milk, hint coffee and a slight burnt flavor as well. Smooth as a baby’s ass. Very good.

Always love Lancaster Milk Stout - Actually the reason I visited the brew pub. It was amazing as usual and yes, I did take two growlers home with me. FYI the draft tastes better than the bottle

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a jet black color and holds a nice creamy head. There is some head retention, but it fades pretty quickly. Smells like roasted malt and burnt chocolate. Tastes like coffee and cocoa, with a bit of a nutty finish. A pretty solid stout here.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The smell is milk chocolate, the look is a thin very light brown head and dark body, the taste is bitter coffee and bitter chocolate, not what I was looking for. Almost no sweetness. Very disappointing taste.
