3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a friend. Served in a tulip glass, this beer has a sweet, chocolatey aroma in a dark dark brown, oil like body color with a fizzy brown head that laces well. This is a smooth, sweet stout that taste much like chocolate milk. The high abv isn’t discernible, but I wish I could have tasted more of the hop bite in this beer. While some sub-par sweet stouts are too much in the sugary factor, this brew is not too sweet or overbearing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost black in color with a finger of off-white head. The nose is heavy on the roasted malt and chocolate with a nice touch of lactose, too. Maybe even a touch of vanilla? A fairly sweet nose, but quite nice. The flavor is not as nice. A little too much roast which comes across as harsh on the palate. Good coffee flavors and a moderate lactose sweetness, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep brown/black, slight ruby edges, with a very thin khaki head. Nose is milk chocolate and lightly roasted grain and almost a touch of banana in there. Taste is really sweet, with a light roasted bitterness. Palate is on the light side of medium, smooth, but prickly from substantial carbonation. Not bad, but I think I want more body and balance, and definitely less carbonation.

Milk stout, also called ‘cream’ or ‘sweet’ stout, is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Because lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer. YUM!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice dark brown/black with small, dissipating tan head. Smell is faintly of coffee and the sweetness from the lactose. Taste is heavy on the coffee and dark chocolate, with a sweet lingering aftertaste. Nice beer overall, but lacking just a bit, like most of the Southern Tier brews.
