COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This creamy, impenetrable, full bodied ale gets some of its buried sweetness from the use of lactose (milk sugar). The chocolate and black malts creates its deep color and its balanced roasted coffee flavors.

Opaque expresso color, Bitter, low kick, probably due to low alcohol and acidity, long but watery finish. Full body and flavor intensity, dryish, reminding one of Guiness. Dark toast and roasted grains, taste of expresso through to aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (4860) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Pours a dark brown to black body with huge fizzy light brown head. Definite sign of infection. The nose is ok though, roasty and sweet with a definite lactose component, a touch of coffee. The flavor is showing a little bit of infection as well. Roasty and sweet at first, but a touch of band aid and an almost Brett like wildness that just doesn’t quite belong. Finishes with some coffee and burnt malt bitterness. The body suffered from the infection as well, it’s overly thin and fizzy. Big disappointment.

AirForceHops (2953) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 23, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Julio’s. Pitch black color with thin mocha head. Nose of dark roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate. Flavor is rich with lactose sugar, coffee and baker’s chocolate with a creamy and smooth texture. Overall if you like this style, I feel this is above average. Really sweet and smooth.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Opa Opa, Southampton, listed as 4.5% ABV. Mid black with a good sized tan head. Nose is roast malt, dark toffee, chocolate. Taste comprises roast malt, milk chocolate, sugars, molasses. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, easy drinking, sweetish finish. Decent milk stout, one of the better offerings I sampled from Opa Opa.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a thin Khaki head. Nice roasted malt notes on the nose. Lots of roasted, chocolate malt on the tongue with a touch of lactose for sweetness. Finishes clean. Certainly the best of what I’ve sampled here.

AleTheWay (1) - California, USA - MAR 28, 2013 does not count
22 oz bottle purchased in Boston’s North End -- label says only ’Milk Stout’, but commercial description matches -- born on date 11/21/12 Similar to canned Guiness, but with better mouthfeel and finish

nimbleprop (4553) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2013
22oz bottle pours a watery, opaque black with some clumpy white head. Nose is suspect, burnt licorice, vanilla, some sour milk, some chocolate. Flavor is better, sweet, vanilla, chocolate, cola. Mouth feel is a little thin.

annunz123 (848) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2012
From a growler at a local liquor store. Coffee, cocoa, and some roast in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and chocolatey, and finishes with some coffee bitterness. Reminds me a little of an alcoholic coffee milkshake, and that’s a good thing.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2012
a growler of opa opa and enjoyed over a few days. very black beer with no edging and dark tan head. aroma is a light milky sweet coffee and a light touch of dusty barn. Taste is classic sweet stout but a tiny bit of bitter shows in the end along with some fruit blossoms. Light bodied easy to enjoy stout. a decent offering.
