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.

DalzAle (2003) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle. Dark black pour, minimal carbonation and an aroma of rich, sweet dark chocolate. Flavor is also nice and slightly sweet dark chocolate, decent roasty malt base and a little noticeable alcohol. SImilar to Southern TIer chokolat, but less alcohol.

jhp40219 (355) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Scored a 4 pack of these while in St. Louis on a business trip. Pours an inky black with a small creamy chocolate colored head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma of cocoa, molasses, lactose. Taste is cocoa and milk chocolate through and through. Truth in advertising here. This is a very chocolaty beer! A bit of coffee, molasses, caramel and black licorice in the background. Very full bodied. Thick, creamy texture. Fairly high carbonation. Long, somewhat dry finish of cocoa and milk chocolate. Simply an outstanding chocolate stout! Great dessert beer.

VeinAle (120) - Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour from four pack of 12oz bottles. Smells like chocolate, soot, roast malts, and sweets. It’s dark, smooth and rich. Very good!

From notes on 3/30/15 On tap at Odell. Wow, very silky smooth and delicious. Big chocolate taste and aroma. Like a chocolate shake, but it is beer.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle, shared with my wife. Dark brown, dark copper highlights, tan head. Aroma of cocoa powder with roasty undertones. Semi-sweet chocolate flavour without having an extract quality. Dark roasted malts balance out the residual sugars so that this doesn’t ever come close to being cloying-- not too sweet at all really. My only criticism is that this beer doesn’t have the weight or body of an imperial stout; it is an excellent sweet stout however.

BOSSbrewer (2512) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Lots of chocolate on the nose, and some roasty coffee. Flavor is lots of chocolate malt with some milky coffee. Smooth bodied, slightly sweet but not cloying. A nice beer.

djd07 (5323) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with paperthin beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong milk chocolate and light roast. Slick mouthfeel with rich chocolate malt, easy to drink, very good.

TheJestersBeer (2200) - SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
Nitro tap @ Odell Tap Room. Pitch black, brown head. Roasted aroma, choclate, coffee, vanilla, ash, tobacco, caramel, hops. Semi-sweet, medium to full bodied, mid bitterness, creamy CO2. Roasted, silky taste, chocolate, coffee, ash, caramel. Incredibly smooth, well balanced, stupendously drinkable. (2014-04-06)

Bif (1636) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Nitro Tap. Served a virtual black color with a thick head and ample lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate and a bit of malt. Taste of milk chocolate, bit of malt and nut in the background. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Full body, thick and creamy and a rich chocolate feel as expected. Nice beer but almost too much chocolate to really enjoy.

stevoj (2719) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours out with nice thick, creamy beige head. Some sweet chocolate at first sniff, more chocolate follows in the taste, pretty much dominates the character. Mild alcohol burn, but overall pretty pleasant

Room temp pour from 12 oz bottle into Spiegelau stout glass. Fluffy head dissipates quickly leaving alright lacing. Beer is black as night-- I can see myself reflected in the glass. Nose is sweet and milky. No surprise there. A little malty too. Taste is very sweet and creamy. Milky. Chocolate comes quick and loud. Tastes kind of like a malty milk chocolate bar. Maybe a little too sweet for me. Spot on for a chocolate milk stout. Hides the alcohol well. Only a slight boozy aftertaste. A beer that delivers exactly what it promises.
