COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.

FROM NOTES: August 2, ’12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker glass. A: Roasted malt with hints of milky chocolate, coffee notes are present as well as the lactose. A: Pours a dark black with a three-finger mocha head that leaves sudsy yet thick side lacing. T: Initially sweet with the obvious lactose taste, and faint notes of expected sourness. The finish is strong toasted bread and roasted malt with just a hint of the sweetness lingering. P: A little too thin and watery on the body, although it did gain some creaminess as it warmed. Carbonation was about perfect for a stout. O: I absolutely LOVE milk stouts and this one was excellent, except for the mouthfeel. That being said, I will still seek out this beer as it is excellent.

Bottle into English pint glass, dark brown’ish black color with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, light coffee and some creamer. Taste is more bitter chocolate, ash, caramel and sugar sweetness. Medium body, low carbonation, creamy, sticky with sweet roasty finish. Solid.

Abijen (1184) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2013
Pours a dark brown beer with a good white head. Smells coffee, creamer, roasted and chocolate. Tastes cream, coffee and chocolate. Thin body, sticky texture and an average carbo. I would have liked the carbo a bit less fizzy and the body some thicker. But overall a nice sweet stout.

An extremely smooth, fresh milk stout , dark as night, dark chocolate essence that lingers for a while. Easy to drink, medium body with almost no head. Excellent milk stout.

Draught @ Galaxy Hut, Arlington, VA. Pours hazy very dark brown with nearly no head at all. CleR aroma of chocolate and malt, as is the taste. Subtle, non-aggressive coffeelike and malty aftertaste. OK.
