COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The combination of four different malts, along with a low hop level creates a deep dark beer featuring rich, sweet roasted flavors. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) adds complexity, body, and a residual sweetness lending a smooth creamy texture to this full-flavored brew. Once a Seasonal offering in the pub, now prominently featured due to popular demand.

If you like a dark black very smooth beer you would be fortunate to find this beer and buy it! It is hard to believe a beer can taste so great!

For all those people that rank the aroma low, I offer these kind words: "it smells better than a hooker’s chocolate starfish at the end of her shift."

Excellent head and strong lace. Great dark brown color. Smooth and Soft come to mind when drinking this one. Sweet without being cloying and just the right bitterness behind the chocolate flavoring. Very Good!

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.

Pours jet black with a tan head. This is a very good stout. Nose is light coffee, and chocolate. Chocolate and malt sweetness up front with a tasty bitter coffee finish. Easy drinking with a low ABV. It’s a little thinner than an oatmeal or breakfast stout (which is desirable depending on your tastes of the day) and is superior to other milk lactose (cream) stouts that I’ve had (I’ve enjoyed quite a few). Overall, a great stout with a chocolaty sweet taste that is easy to drink and tastes great. An underrated stout IMO.

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!

On tap at Rochester Mill’s. Black beer. Has a sweet, creamy flavor and goes down smooth. Probably my favorite at the Mill’s.

Not bad at all. Strong chocolate aroma following through in taste. Some roasty notes. Sweetness present but not invasive. Quite creamy milk in flavor as well. Quite thin in mouthfeel, and would benefit from enhancements in this area. Not overly complex, although lingering coffee notes that don't reveal themselves sooner. Very low ABV of 5-ish.

Very good milk stout. Good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, cocoa nib and lactose flavors, and very smooth to drink.

Smells somewhat like coffee. Very dark in color Has some minor carbonation which I found interesting for a stout Nice creamy head on my glass of beer. Pretty smooth drink with no taste of alcohol lingering. Very drinkable and I would drink this again! Nice can for my beer can collection! Appearance Very very nice!
