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.

The aroma is complex and evolves as the beer warms. At first pour you get loads of roasted malt, while later the cocoa notes really dominate. The flavor is a bit more straighforward with a nice combination of both and added hints of black coffee in the finish. Thereís a distinct yet well hidden citrus hoppiness that adds a nice layer of acidity. The lactose layer really softens all the rougher edges, bringing it all together and luring the palate into perpetually wanting more.

ScipioA (393) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Dark cola pour with a tan/brown head, somewhat maroon around the edges. Chocolate, fruit, and a little alcohol in the aroma, but also something sharp that I canít quite name, but itís a little unpleasant. Quite sweet with plenty of chocolate balancing against the roasted malts. Fluffy and frothy mouthfeel that leaves a little stickiness on the lips. Super solid sweet stout.

bellco33 (487) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 7, 2014
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.

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.

SrSilliGose (3322) - 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.

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 (9381) - 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.
