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.

Cask at Rustico Alexandria VA, 9/30/2011, I got the pint, no head, no carbonation, color did not seem as dark as the regular milk stout, smell malt and chocolate, taste is smooth, did not taste a lot of coffee and malt, still not bad.

poured from a 12 oz bottle at home. Pours a black with a slight head with lacing. Smell is cocoa, coffee and sweet. Taste is bitter from the chocolate? After taste of coffee. Overall a decent beer, but Iíve had better milk stouts.

Excellent beer! Vanilla, cocoa puffs & cheerwine dominate the taste with a tiny bit of tobacco & roast. This is really good!

Black pour with a slight head on draft in Raleigh-Durham (my first visit to North Carolina). Really nice brew. Not too sweet. Very drinkable.

BadAprilia1000 (219) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Pours a very dark ruby red with a good sized cappuccino head that dissipates to a perfect height. Aroma is extreme roasty, coffee, malt, brown sugar, oats, burnt cocoa nibs, slight nuttiness. Taste is creamy, coffee, light brown sugar, espresso. Palate is average, should be slightly thicker mouthfeel for this style in my opinion, although I often run into the same with cream ales, perhaps a lactose thing. Overall very pleasant, some rich darker flavors yet still sessionable. Very great standard for milk stouts

Pours a very deep brown with some faint maroon hints when the light hits it. Thin tan head that doesnít stick around for too long but leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee bean, vanilla, roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is not quite as bold as I expected. Much more delicate. Espresso, vanilla bean, and roasted malt are the dominate details that I can pick out. Semi-sweet stout, that seems to be holding back a little on the flavor. Itís delicious, but I feel like it could be even better with some tweaking of the flavor profiles. Nicely carbonated and light on the palate for a stout. Overall this beer is very enjoyable, and I could easily see myself sitting down and knocking out a few of these in a row. Itís not however the best sweet stout that Iíve had and there are better options out there in the category in my opinion.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass. A: Pours a not-entirely-opaque dark ruby color. The head isnít very impressive: it isnít even a finger high, itís a light brown shade, and it doesnít even retain itself very well. Not much lacing is left, either. Not the most impressive looking stout. S: The primary aroma is lactose cream, as expected. Other notes like roasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, and *maybe* some dark fruit keep it interesting. Exactly what I want from a milk stout aroma, no more, no less. T: Flavors are much the same: itís milky to start, turning into a sweet middle and a roasted yet sweet finish. Occasional wisps of chocolate appear near the back end. Not much for me to say here other than the fact itís a good, solid milk stout thatís more conducive to drinking than analyzing. M: I like my stouts to feel creamy and soft, and this doesnít quite fulfill that. Itís a touch sharp, a touch over-carbonated, and dare I suggest, porter-y. Itís also rather sweet and lacking in finishing dryness. O: The look and the feel arenít great, but this is quite good otherwise. If this was readily available in my state, Iíd definitely drink it again.

The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout has a medium, beige, creamy head, some lacing left behind, and a dark brown appearance, with some visible bubble streams on the side of the glass. The aroma is of sweet, sugary, brown bread crust, milk powder, chocolate powder, and even a touch of black cherry. Taste is of all that, with a nice, subtle, balancing bitterness to follow up. Mouthfeel is thick and velvety, and The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout finishes powdery dry, easy going, and smooth. Overall, this is an outstanding beer. I love it! RJT
