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.

Bottle, poured cellar temperature. Smells like dark roasted coffee and malt. Pours dark, dark red, nearly black, with a tan head. Taste starts sweet, followed by a taste that follows the smell, and finishes just bitter enough to let you know there’s alcohol in it, not quite stout bitter, though. Good sipper. Would buy again.

Pours black with brown head. Wonderful strong roasted scent. Taste even better than it smells. Great dark roasted coffee and Carmel flavor. Very good milk stout.

1/23/14. Draft at motorco. Poured inky black with a milk chocolate two finger head. Mild roasty nose. Wonderfully balanced mouth that evolves and delights all the way down. Like many other Duck-Rabbits, this sets my standard for milk stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle, thanks to caterwaul. Enjoy by date notched is 2/14. Near-black color. Thin light brown head. Leaves good ropes and dots of lace. Head later fades to minimal. Good heavy roast in this, which I appreciate. Light coffee note. Bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Sweet stouts are often way too sweet for me, I appreciate the heavy roasty bitter taste of this example. Nice milk chocolate aroma. Medium-plus body. Good chewiness to the texture, and a dry finish. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Satisfying, tasty milk stout. Probably how I’d brew one, if I had to. A good amount of roast and bitterness, not too sweet, with a nice chewier texture.

Nice pour, dark in color and good head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice spices. Taste is similar to aroma with very little bitterness at all. Mild, creamy, smooth and lite for a stout. Very Good.

P: Deep dark mahogany hued dark body with a mound if creamy dense cappuccino head. Retention is decent and rests to a creamy tan coffee swirl on top leaving shinny lacing behind. S: Bitter dark cocoa, old leather, heavy cream, milk chocolate, medium roast coffee, hints of salted cashews and an dusty earth aroma. T/M: Sweet roasted dark malts, cherry mash, booze, milk chocolate, sweet cream, coffee, hazelnuts and dark fruits. After taste lingers roasted honey dew melon. Medium body a tad oily and moderate carbonation. Finishes wet with a dash of dryness afterwards. O: A solid offering thy would be a great beer to keep in the fridge. The dark fruit and melon really made this different but refreshing. I like that it was not as rich and sweet as some milk stouts but it really had simple but good flavors. I will drink this again for sure.

Roasty coffee aroma. Pours black with thin off-white head. Smooth, sweet flavor which develops into a lingering malty coffee bitterness.
