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.

A perfect beer. Beautiful stout but not too roasty, metallic, or astringent. Milk sugars balance roastiness without tasting artificial. Perfect chocolate milk for adults.

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.

Sampled this at work. Oh my goodness its fantastic. It doesn’t have that bitter finish. Its got a very good chocolate flavor without being over powering.

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Smells strongly of milk chocolate. Taste is strongly sweet, milk chocolate, and hints of dark chocolate. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, ODell Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout finishes with a lingering semi sweetness.

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.

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.

Just a perfect treat. Awesome hints of chocolate. Convinced to try this after a tour of the brewery. Great history behind this beer.

Bottle. Poured a thick, syrupy goodness that is black. Little head. Chocolate and roasty in the nose. Lighter mouth feel than expected but still rather heavy. Great chocolate and smooth, residual sweetness. Smooth finish with a long chocolate finish. Overall great.

Aroma was Cadbury to a nose (no pun intended). Body was creamy with standard roasty cocao notes and mild sweetness. Couldn’t even taste the 8.5 percent Another winner from odell.

Phenomenal brew, very drinkable but extremely complex. The lactose is just the right amount, always a faint hint of milk chocolate in the aroma and taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
