Growler courtesy of Skyview. Black color with a medium head. Sweet malt aroma and lots of lactose sweetness. The milk backs off a bit in the taste, but the overall sweetness and slick malt are still there. Just a little bit of an English earthy hop bitterness to finish it off.

Very nice milk stout. Served on tap at the brewery. Pint glass with co2 pour. Creamy 1 finger head, nice lace. Sweet chocolate milk nose. Very black color. Taste is mocha then whole milk followed by roasted coffee and just a slight hoppy finish. Similar to Brau Brother’s Cream Stout. Very good representation of the style. A nice surprise.

On draught at the brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy cola brown brew with a creamy and lumpy light tan head that has some good retention and some sticky lacing. Aroma of toasted oatmeal malt, chocolate, sweet cream, lactose and some flowery hops. Taste is full-bodied, smooth, creamy with flavors of mild dark oatmeal malt, some dry molasses, lactose, and chocolate. Finish has a slight dry malt aftertaste that turns into a semi-sweet vanilla and chocolate flavor. The lactose is present in this milk stout.
