COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout is not as bitter as the Sacri-licious Stout. It is brewed with milk sugar(lactose) to impart a fuller body and sweeter palate.

From a can the look of this borders on a 5, nicely done without a widget. Fairly friendly gentle stout aroma. Head fades. Feel is hollow at times. Smooth going and easy, could have less of an apparent alky personality. Roasty stout personality. Hope nobody thinks this is going to taste anything like a milkshake, heheh.

The taste is a chocolaty caramel. Real easy beer to swallow and settles well in the stomach. I don’t know where the "Milkshake" comes from because it taste nothing like a milkshake. The name is not important because this is a top notch stout.

Large sample pour of deep brown to black with full khaki head. Nose is roasted malts and sweet caramel notes with lighter sugars. Flavor is smooth caramel and milky sweetness. Lactose qualities grow as it opens. Roast and malt presence more than anything. It’s pretty decently made.

tectactoe (3084) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2015
Can: Dark brown, nearly black with a creamy, swindling beige head on top. Looks a touch thin. Aroma packed with milky chocolate, mostly sweet with a hint of roasted malts in the background. Light coffee with dry undertones to blunt the sweetness towards the finish. Mouth feel is slightly thin, but still retains a moderately creamy essence which is nice. Almost silky. Flavors of sweet baker’s chocolate, roasted malt, toasted nuts, & a good bit of coffee. Not black coffee, more like "heavy cream & sugar" type coffee. Creamy milky chocolate finish with a slight roasty bitter twinge for balance. Far from cloying, actually quite drinkable. Tasty stuff.

arminjewell (8478) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2015
Pour on tap at HopCat, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark milk sugar, some chocolate, coffee, hints of spice into a bit of caramel, slight toffee, slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, hints of spice into some slight caramelized sugar, hints of lactose, finishing sweet.

ChrisFields (95) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Pours opaque with a thick foamy head. Aroma is malt and lactose. Taste is sweet. The milk and cocoa flavors are obvious. Tastes of soy sauce and dates are also prominent. Full bodied and with very mild carbonation. Overall a decent enough sweet milk stout, but there are better.

Great smooth, creamy, chocolatey stout out of a pint can. Not too sweet, a little coffee flavor but basically no bitterness. Never thought my home town would ever boast a brewery that could make a beer of this caliber!
