COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lily Flagg Milk Stout is named for Huntsville’s most famous quadruped. A prize cow owned by local plantation owner Samuel B. Moore, Lily Flagg was honored as one of the world’s best butterfat producers in 1892 at an exposition in Chicago. This dark, rich beer contains tons of roasted malt goodness, hints of chocolate and coffee and a creamy mouth feel from the addition of milk sugars during the brewing process.

Kroney (210) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2015
BIF project. Can to pint glass. Appearance: Brownish black with a thin caramel colored head. Aroma: roasted coffee beans, pecans, raw chocolate, dark roasted malt. Taste: it tries to get the coffee and chocolate notes started, but overwhelmed by the lactic sweetness. Decent hop bitterness for a milk stout. Palate: a little harsh on the carbonation. Lactic sweetness permeates and won’t go away. Good beer; almost very good.

Can. Small tan head. Rough roasted charred smell with sour lactose and notes of cola. Empty watery palate. Some sort of olive flavor with milk chocolate.

Can from Liquor Express. Pours black with a big tan head that dissipates to a thin layer with a small amount of lace. The aroma is roasted malt with a taste of burnt coffee and chocolate. A little on the thin side with a long finish.

On tap at Loda Biergarten. Pours a black color with off white head. Roasty, corn, sweet malty flavors. Not a great beer, wouldn’t get again.

Decent milk stout. Mouthfeel little thin. Flavor is on the creamier side of the spectrum vs the sweet side. Low abv. Another solid outing from strait to ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
