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.

big disappointment. Strange smelling stout. A little on the thin side. Was hoping more from this.

On tap at Cypress Street pub (ATL), Opaque black with a good, fairly durable head. Aroma: mild; lightly sweet; toffee and roasted grains. Flavor: dark roasted grains. Light sweetness is about average for style, excepting perhaps the lightly sweet aftertaste.

Nice coffee atoms with a hint of caramel that continues with the initial taste. It finishes with a light almost semi sweet taste. A nice lighter stout. I would like to get up to Huntsville and enjoy one straight from Straight to Ale. [rim shot]

Pours a rich coffee brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma has notes of coffee and molasses. Flavor starts with caramel and adds waxy semi-sweet chocolate and molasses notes, plus a hint of coffee. Texture is dusty and fairly firm. Go straight to Ale and enjoy one!

jbruner (2357) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pours a translucent brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma is coffee covered with toffee and molasses, caramel sweetness. Taste follows, incredibly sweet, but still enough roast to balance it out. Thick mouth, good carbonation, very nice.
