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.

From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a nice black with a thick creamy khaki head. Nose is super malty, dark coffee, chocolate. Taste is medium-heavy body, bitter with touches of chocolate sweetness. Finishes extremely smooth, phenomenal.

Light hops, sweet nuance, chocolate, nice for sitting on the porch on a wonderful spring day enjoying the budding green, flowers and a noisy lawnmower--not

Chocolatey but not overwhelming, with a smooth finish that hides the kick off 8.5% abv.

Odell is the it brewery as of late. They are prolific, putting a new brew every day. The Lugene is a good brew. Chocolaty aroma. Soft head. Foamy and frothy. Sweet. Maybe a bit too rich. It needs more bitterness to balance the chocolate. Overall a good brew.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2016 Odell’s crafted something amazing with Lugene. It may be the ultimate dessert beer. While I wanted this a beer to be just a bit headier, the black color is phenomenal. Lugene smells like rich malt, spicy cocoa, and booze. However, you won’t find any of the latter in the flavor. I was astounded to learn that this stout had an of ABV 8.5%. You don’t notice the alcohol until it warms your stomach. The flavors are just unreal. It starts with spicy cocoa, roasted malt , and dark chocolate, then finishes with milk chocolate, and last of all, chocolate milk. Yes, milk chocolate and chocolate milk are mutually exclusive. It has to be tasted to be believed. The sweetness sticks to the palate and the roof of the mouth. Lugene has a fantastically creamy mouthfeel, though I did find the carbonation to be a bit strong. Bested only by Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout, Lugene is an exceptional treat.

Chocolate milk for grown-ups, a sweet stout that is truly sweet. A fairly thick beer, though not as thick as Guinness. Sweet enough to satisfy an intense sweet tooth and replace dessert.
