3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 In the bottle at Bill B.’s birthday party. Ruby-black with a simply beautiful cascading head of down-pouring brown beer and up-flowing bubbles forming a light brown head. Has an extremely strong roasted aroma. Has a strong lactose sweet flavor. Light in hops with a slight sourness. Pretty delicious. UPDATE 6/2007: On tap at Max & Joe’s Left Hand tasting party. Black with a dark tan head. Great roasted aroma. This is thinner than the porter. A strong lactose sweetness emerges toward the warming end.

This beer introduces itself with the hearty aroma of sweet coffee. It is a black liquid with a dark hazel brown head. This solution enters the mouth thick and with a strong coffee taste. The palate enjoys a transformation that goes from mildly bitter to a lingering sweetness.

With a pleasant aroma this stout is milky smooth. It’s medium bodied, frothy, and nutty. This sweet stout would b good for beginner – intermediate stout drinkers.

Slightly milky with just a hint of chocolate. Texture much thinner than anticipated. Go with Duck Rabbit instead if you’d like to enjoy good sweet stout.

(draft) Not much to say about this beer. Nothing stood out at all. A little thinner than I was expecting. No coffee, no chocolate, no licorice. Just a bit of a milky feel to it. I guess that’s why they call it Milk Stout.
