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 thanks to the Ross, who hopes to one day play guitar as good as Angus Young. Keep practicing Ross, you’ll get there young man. Pours black with thick tan head. Heavy dark roast and coffee aroma. Nice mouthfeel. Coffee flavor with some bittering hops, and a slight sweetness. Some astringency in the roasty and bitter finish. I was expecting this to be a little sweeter being a Milk Stout, but still good.

[Bottled, my 7000th rating, thanks chris_o!] Near black, beige head. Aroma of coffee and corn flakes. Medium sweet with rounded creamy mouthfeel and rather light body. Plenty of butterscotch and a hint of metal. Boldly flavourful., but kind of unrefined.

I found this beer to be very enjoyable, but roastier than expected. I would have guessed a milk porter if I didn’t see the bottle. The sweetness of the milk sugar was present in addition to lots of roasted malt. Earthy and a slightly sour chocolatey finish. It may sound a bit odd, but I found it to be very wonderful! This is the second effort from this brewery and I hope I can get my hands on several more!

OldGrowth (2848) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2006
Bottle, from ross. Good nose, sweet. Roasty. Chocolate, oat, chalk, seltzer. Clean orangy dark brown color. Small head that faded quickly to a ring. Ok lacing. Sweet bitter flavor. Has a nice little bite to it. Like aroma, but takes on more of a coffee taste with the chocolate. Medium body, smooth creamy oily mouthfeel. bittersweet finish. Really enjoyed this one. Had it on draught a few months back at the Flying Saucer in Raleigh.

kujo9 (1094) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2006
12 oz bottle: Dark brown, almost opaque w/ a lasting light tan head. Nutty, chocolatey and toasty malt noticeable immediately. Lightly fruity/estery, roasty and toasty as it warms in the aroma. Well balanced w/ a chocolatey dominant flavorl Light roasty, but on the sweet side (as is should be) with a touch of dark grain acidity to cut the sweetness just a bit. Sweet finish & aftertaste. Slightly brown sugary w/ nutty malts. Roasty finish and a bit of bready and caramel malts in the aftertaste w/ the sweetness staying just short of cloying. Lighter medium body, medium carb., smooth m/f. Very flavorful for a milk stout. I was expecting something sort of one dimensional, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one!

out of the pottle pours with an abundant milk-chocolate cream head that lines with fissiness if viewing from the outside and hides the thick, churning icecream core of the head that bubbles softly but begins to dissipate quickly. the deep black, amber undertoned body follows beneath. the aroma is bold yet sweet - strongly of mildly roasted coffee and milk. the taste again show-cases the coffee, complimented by semi-sweet chocolate chips, and elusive, frolicking caramel. there are snippets of almond extract, lemon and slight bitterness. the palate is velvety, cream, almost like the remains of vanilla icecream in your mouth (probably because the beer was SO cold and thick). This cream feel lingers in your mouth. Continued sips brings out the bitterness more and more until it overwhelms the sweeter, malt flavors which is unfortunately anti-climactic. good for awhile then....
