COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Milk Stout. Roasty, Chocolately, Coffee, Smooth. It is absolutely loaded with flavor for a 5.6% drink, and the residual sugar greases your palate just enough to want to drink this forever.

Poured from growler into a tulip: ours jet black with a thin an head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and lactose. Taste is more of the same, but mainly chocolate. Lots of flavor, not overly sugary like milk stouts can end up being. Smooth medium body, light carbonation which is just right for a milk stout. Nice beer.

Quite good. Beautiful appearance with serious depth for a milk stout. Coffee and roasty malts meet chocolate milk. Great body for a non-imperial. I dig.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Draught at the brewery, 1/18/14
Light tan head tops an inky black body with some lighter dark brown edges. Well-retained, even for a sample. Seems to be opaque.
Lactic-meets-chocolate nose evens out to produce a molasses aroma, with light roast and some definite vanilla-cream notes. Moderate strength of aroma, like how the lactose is apparent in the nose. Light anise notes and even some marshmallow flavors. Toasted, bready malts. Quite a lot going on for a sweet sout.
Sweeter than I would expect, based on the nose. Milk sugar and light prune vie for dominance, but the maltiness and sugars easily win. A bit watery on the end. More hop bitterness would go a long way here, as the very light roastiness and lactic notes are the only thing battling the sweetness. Drinkable, but I canít imagine having more than a pint of this. Then again, sweet stouts are a very strange style. How can you fault a "sweet" stout for being sweet? And it does have some interesting vinousness, as mentioned. Will revisit, as this brewery seems to be quite worthwhile.

SrSilligoose (3244) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
tap at brewery. clean pleasant dark chocolatey roast bitterness balanced by an in-check lactose sugar presence. chocolate. surprisingly dry. typically not a fan of lactose sugar milk stouts, as they tend to be far to sweet. but this had a nice dark chocolate roast character. nice.

WillRunForBeer (632) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Growler. Pours deep dark brown with a thin brown head. Smells sweet... Milk chocolate, cereal, coffee. Taste has a bit of molasses, followed by coffee bitter. Creamy. Theres a smoky bitterness in the finish that takes this down a point.

Scopey (6661) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Growler thanks to Leighton. It pours near black with a medium tan head. The nose is earth, light roast, toast, cocoa, lactose, creaminess and light smoke. The taste is smooth, roasty, milk chocolate, cocoa, maltesers, toast, coffee and marshmallow. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Smooth and very drinkable indeed.

Theydon_Bois (8115) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Growler split at CBC, thanks to Leighton, 05/12/13. Mid black with a moderate tan covering. Nose carries a good roast blast, dark toffee fudge, cocoa nibs, earthy tones. Taste comprises earthy cocoa, light roast, dark toffee notes, sugar, sweet lactic roounding, touch of coffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Decent.

popery (1392) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours black with dark brown highlights around the edges. Soft, khaki head. Itís a thick blanket of small bubbles. Great lacing, good head retention. Lots of chocolate in the aroma with some gentle roast. Nice lactic edge. Loads of milk chocolate. The taste is similar. Itís medium sweet with lots of cocoa flavor. The relatively mild lactic note keeps the beer from getting cloying. Plus, there is very little of the cola flavor that I tend to find a bit overbearing in other examples. Mouthfeel is creamy and gentle. They filled this growler right up to the top, leaving nearly zero head space, and the beer kept very well. Pretty much perfect for the style. Very impressive stuff. Iím not the biggest milk stout fan, but this is just how I like them.

Leighton (10698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Growler shared in London - picked up at the brewery five days beforehand. Pours rich brown with a thick, frothy tan cap. Great aroma, filled with milk chocolate, toasted nuts, hefty roasted malts and burnt marshmallows. Medium sweet flavor with dry milk chocolate, good roastiness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Great balance in the finish, more milk chocolate, adequate roast, rich toasted bread. Delicious and highly drinkable. Very solid.

maneliquor (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Growler share cheers to Leighton. Pours heavy dark brown, bordering on black, with a medium, firm beige head. Nice sticky lacing. Nose is vanilla forward, chocolate powder, piney hops, touch of aniseed, grass, mild roast and lactose with a hint of zest behind it. Taste is dry chocolate, very powdery, roasted coffee beans - espresso like bitterness, vanilla, biscuit, dark fruits. Creamy mouth feel. Decent stuff
