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.

Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth, slightly airy and a little dry. Mellow dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Slightly tangy. Mellow cocoa chocolate. Touch of ripe fruits before a light and semi dry finish. Not bad but the chocolate tastes cheap.

Dark beer with some mahogany hints when held against the light. Short lived tan head, and I poured it poorly and got literal chunks floating in the glass. This just smells like chocolate. Big chocolaty beer with some lactose sweetness and noticeable alcohol in the finish. The warmer it gets the hotter it gets on the tongue.

johndoughty (3880) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle. Black with a small head. Chocolate is present but not overpoweringly so. Alcohol is present but doesn’t take over. An impressive one that is easy to drink.

DiarmaidBHK (3380) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Draft at Fate CO. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave any lacing in the glass. Has a milk chocolate smell on the nose. Lots of lactose on the tongue which doesn’t exactly blend with the sweet chocolate. Finish lingers a bit. Solid milk stout but I’ve had better.

Great head and color. Smell of milk chocolate, milk and hint of caramel. Taste full of milk chocolate and after a while alcohol. Nice body too. Excellent milk stout.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle:   Deep brown, cola hued edges, small frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Soft sweet roasted malts on the nose.   A little lactose.   Slight dark or bakers chocolate.   Smooth on the tongue, pale roastiness (and not acrid either), with some lactose like sweetness, rounding out with the aforementioned dark or bakers chocolate with a hint of vanilla.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Very slight prune on the backside of this one.   Hides the 8.5% very well.   Surprised to see it that high.   This one was pretty tasty!

This beer is approaching sweet and the chocolate is prominent but not over done. There is more carbonation than I would expect and this works well to keep the chocolate from shutting the beer down. It gives a bit of porter character.

Bottle. Pours black with very little head. Aroma is mostly milk chocolate with some light roast, light vanilla, and black licorice. Taste is moderately sweet up front with mostly chocolate and light roasted coffee. Finish has a light bitterness with chocolate and black licorice. Thin to medium body. Overall, it’s disappointing. There’s something throwing it off for me and I think it’s the licorice. And it’s just not rich enough or smooth enough to be a good milk stout.
