Always love Lancaster Milk Stout - Actually the reason I visited the brew pub. It was amazing as usual and yes, I did take two growlers home with me. FYI the draft tastes better than the bottle mikejmadden99 (103) - Mountain Top, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2002
This dark smooth brew, with a smooth silky looking white foam has hint of chocolate, milk , and a bit of toffee in its smell. The taste is smooth with tastes of milk and toffee, while the qualities of a stout are not very noticable this milk stout offers a relax sweet treat.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is use motor oil black, very cool. The head is a very dark tan head. The aroma is full of malt and matches the appearance perfectly. The flavor is creamy roasted malt, a fantastic flavor. Overall, an outstanding beer. DubbelO7 (42) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2003
I given this one high marks because it really is that good from the get go as it goes into your mouth and rolls over the tastebuds and slides down the throat into the stomach and ultimately into your brain cells !
A gentle soft sweetness and opaque espresso like color even when held to sunlight .
I wish more stouts were like this one ...
I mean,... this is another type of stout than is a Guinness or a Murphy's but... this is sooo sooo much better than they overall I promise you .
This is a new-world stout, one that leads the way to better drinking better tasting stout .
Now, if I could just get a full case of it... only was able to get 6 out of the Lancaster sampler ...

very unique and nicely brewed beer. It has depth w/out being overbearing. Great with a meal or AS a meal. one of the most lovely milk stouts I’ve tried to date.

I’ve had this brew both on draught and bottled. Dark (almost black) in color, with a highly contrasting white head. Creamy in texture, with flavors of coffee and chocolate. Extremely satisfying. eyes_wide_shut (107) - Haifa, ISRAEL - APR 30, 2011
At a tiny tasting in my home, bottle, pours completely black, almost headless, fawn head, smoked, toffee, dark chocolate, toasted malt and sweet aroma, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, toasted and smoked taste, carbonated and bitter aftertaste, fills the palate flavors of coffee, medium body, very fluid, and overall an outstanding beer and it’s really my cup of tea. murph3irish (17) - Linthicum, Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2012
This is a great stout! Lovely motor oil like color. Nice foamy head at first but didn’t last as long as I would have liked. Smells of roast coffee and sweet barley and malt. The taste is smooth and sweet with a slightly bitter coffee finish. I buy this often. Wonderful stout experience! Reminds me of an awesome cup of black coffee but in beer form.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 RERATE 5/2004 - I've been looking for this for years, and I finally found it at the local liquor store. Aroma is fantastic - like coffee ice cream on steroids. Pours and looks great. Has an oily feel to it, more like a porter than a stout. That sweet burnt milk flavor underlines the coffee, somewhat hoppy flavor. Finish is consistent with the start. Still a great beer. slimjim (106) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2002
One of my favorite sweet stouts. This one is soooooo smooth, creamy and dark. Love it!
