COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named in tribute to the railroads that surround our brewery, Cowcatcher Milk Stout is a surprisingly sessionable beer that is as black as night with a thick, tan head. This beer is brewed with lactose, giving it a substantial smooth body. Munich, black malts and roasted barley lend a roasted coffee-esque flavor profile to balance the sweetness of the lactose and Crystal 60 malt. This offering was brewed as a limited edition beer, with only 10 barrels available. Don’t let anything get in the way of you drinking some Cowcatcher Milk Stout!

Pours a deep brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma of sweet mocha notes, light coffee, and earth. Taste is more toward a mocha latte coffee, good lactose notes. Smooth and creamy, moderate carbonation, really nice.

A subdued aroma of cafe latte with hints of malt and chocolate, pours a dark black color with a thick lasting tan head with good lacing. A creamy feel with a roasted malt and a chocolate malt/cafe latte taste with a great toasted malt finish.

Black as night, you’re not going to be seeing anything through this beast. Huge roasty aromas mixed with coffee and chocolate. There’s a big roasted taste followed by big coffee and chocolate. Super smooth and highly drinkable. Crush a few of these and you’ll be feeling good. Excellent milk stout from a fantastic brewery. Cheers!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep cola brown with a thin tan head. Soft roast and cocoa on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet and full of gentle roast. Nice and smooth with some cocoa and roast. Very easy drinking. Gentle bitterness on the finish balanced nicely with a fair amount of sweetness.

On draft at SmartMouth. Pours a medium stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some sweet chocolate, some Hershey bar, some earth, some baker’s chocolate, and some sweetness. Flavor is similar with roast, some Hershey bar, some baker’s chocolate, and some acrid coffee. Light to medium in body and a nice milk stout overall.

Draft. Overall a very good sweet stout. Smooth, lots of flavor but without sharp edges, satisfying all around.

Cowcatcher is a solid milk stout. The aroma is typical of stout, though light on the hop. The appearance is dark, though the head was a little thin. The taste is perfectly balanced, malty and creamy and very rich. A sessionable beer.

From a growler purchased at the brewery. Pours brown with a khaki head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and faint floral hops. Great flavor of chocolate, light smoke, weak coffee, and just a touch of vanilla. Mouth feel is perfect with just a hint of creaminess and sweetness as you would expect from a milk stout. Nearly perfect for the style and a very nice beer.
