COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you’ve ever been to our brewery, you’ve likely seen the old, beat-up truck that hauls away our spent grain. That truck belongs to Lugene, who’s been feeding his dairy cows the hearty malt for over a decade. Named in his honor, Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout is brewed with milk sugar and milk chocolate. The rich and creamy brew reminds us of a cold glass of chocolate milk and our hometown "Aggie" roots.

Burgers (333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2014
Very dark brown with minimal head. Slightly sweet palate with alcohol burn to roof of mouth. Good balance and full body. Probably too sweet and cloying to drink more than one.

Garrold (1740) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear, darkest brown. No head. Sweet milk chocolate. Milk. Light nuttiness. Taste is refined sugar sweet. And that’s about it, really. Given the ABV, this is a bit thin, and a bit bland.

Perfect hint of chocolate with a clean finish. No trace of bitterness. Among the best milk stouts I’ve ever tried.

Cavie (3844) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2014
BTBF. Dark chocolate appearance. Sweet chocolate nose, roasted malts. Tight and sweet flavor. Easy drinking with a good finish.

This is one of the best milk stouts I've ever tried. It is smooth as silk from beginning to end. It has a balance that ties together the rich chocolate malts and the creaminess of the milk sugars. It reminds me of a chocolate milk made with super dark chocolate.

ilovedarkbeer (2340) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head. Creamy mouthfeel and semi sweet finish. Notes of milk chocolate, cookie crust, smoke, cocoa krispies, and greenery.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 16/20
scoth (529) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours dark brown, black in the glass with a thin tan head, very fine lacing, moderate retention. Aromas of chocolate, espresso, caramel, grass, biscuit. Full body, smooth and creamy. Medium sweet, the barest hint of citrus, mild bitter finish, like semi-sweet chocolate. A surprisingly strong milk chocolate flavor that doesn’t overwhelm, not at all cloying.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
lb4lb (2555) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours black with a long lasting creamy, creamy head. Smell is very mild chocolate malt, and milky. Taste is milky and chocolaty with lactose sweetness and a very faint bitterness. Leaning sweet as you’d expect and it’s a touch sweeter than I’d like. Very creamy and chocolaty. Somehow a slightly thin yet creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer a great example of the style. I could maybe even see the wife liking this?

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 9/20
Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2014
Nose of chocolate and lactose combined with hints of roasted malt and coffee. A thick black pour with a tan ring and minimal lacing. The palate is moderately sweet. Chocolate, bitter coffee, cola, and lactose with a sugary chocolate finish and aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, while an enjoyable example of a milk stout, it was sweeter than I was expecting and not as thick full mouthfeel as I was anticipating. wouldn’t want to drink more than one at a time.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a dark nearly black body that supports a thin mocha colored head of foam. The modest aroma offers up malt sweetness, bits of smooth chocolate and echoes of sweet dark fruity esters. The taste starts with some sweetness and then it quickly picks up a restrained mild chocolate bar note before a mix of wafer thin layers of dark roasted malts and sweet dark fruity esters join in and help take this to the finish. Smooth tasting brew.
