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.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Deep opaque brown body, thin tight beige head. Rich roasty nose with cocoa and woody acidity. Roasty body with light lactic sweetness and a woody, acidic bite in the finish. Subtle sweetness but it enhances an average stout.

16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger foamy tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that eventually disappears. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, light coffee, cream, herbal, light floral, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good dark/roasted malt balance; and decent strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, light floral and roasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, toffee, cream, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a bit. Good balance of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid milk stout. Good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and lactose flavors; and very smooth to drink. An enjoyable offering.

July 3, 2013 - can shared by Joe. Dark brown pour with limited head. Chocolate and cocoa in the aroma and taste. Little bit of lactose in there as well to give this a thin milkshake type experience.

umich03jm (1769) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2013
16 oz can. Pours a very dark brown with a medium foamy head that fades normally and leaves good lacing. Great appearance. Lactose sweet aroma of chocolate milk, coffee, and some light caramel. Taste is solid. Sweet iced mocha coffee, light bitterness in the finish. A little caramel comes through too. Thin to medium body that’s smooth and a little creamy. Overall, pretty nice. A little sweet but I’d drink this again.

changeup45 (1715) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2013
A dark pour from a pint sized can produces a frothy tan head on top that leaves minimal lacing while drinking. The aroma consists of toasted oats, creamy caramel, and chocolate. This isn’t as lactic or creamy as I was expecting. Zippy carbonation, with a body that seems a shade thin. The flavors are decent but unexciting: chocolate, some roasted malt, a little sweet lactic flavor (although I was looking for this), and light coffee grounds enter the mix. Easy to drink with no major flaws, but very forgettable too.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2013
16 oz can served in a snifter. Pours is a deep dark brown, opaque in the glass, with a tan head that has limited size and retention but leaves decent lacing. Aroma: sweet malts and chocolate Flavor: lightly and appropriately sweet, with a richer and darker malt base than I would have guessed from the smell alone. Still, not quite as robust as I’d like. Feel: medium-full body; medium-light carbonation. O: a satisfying milk stout in a can.

Can. Pours black with tan head. Chocolate and toasted nut aroma. Taste is medium body slight milky and just a touch of sweet chocolate
