COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter stout offering is brewed with a hefty amount of two row barley, as well as Victory, Munich, and Carapils malt. We round it out with some lactose sugar and flaked oat for sweetness and body. While the hops in this beer certainly dont play a central role, we balance all that malt with a good dose of East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, and Wilamette hops.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown color close to black with a fingers worth of off white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Messy lace. The aroma seemed to blend the roast to the sweet; coffee bean to cocoa bean. Lactose seems to be just an underscore to it. The flavor, once again seems to blend nice and refined with the sweetness of the lactose just there but not burdensome. Smooth sweet to roasty aftertaste rolling into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a smooth silkiness on my tongue. Mild carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, to me at least, I thought this balanced in way more roast than expected for the style, but I think I enjoyed that more than the usual suspects of this style.

22 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, brown head, nice lacing and lovely carbonation. Aroma is of toasted malt, toast, dark fruit, marshmallows and chocolate. Body is medium, creamy and slightly crisp. Taste is of toasted malt, herbal hops, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit, marshmallows and graham crackers. Finish is long and semi-dry. Tasty brew.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small frothy brown head that faded to a wispy thin covering. Nose is roasty and chocolaty with a slight lactose note. The flavor is fairly solid, nice lactose and cocoa notes without being overly sweet, slight bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty solid sweet stout.

Bought this at the brewery for $16 for a German growler (approx 5 pints). The black pour had a thin head with decent lacing. The nose was malty, alcohol bite, and a bitter chocolate. With the "milk" additive and oatmeal flakes, it had a creamy mouthfeel that you would expect from this style. Overall, I havent had a quality pour of a milk stout like this one in years ( It reminds me of Triumphs milk stout that I had years ago in New Hope, PA). Worth a try for sure. Cheers!

Big bottle purchased at Wegmans for $5.49. Served lightly chilled. Poured into tulip glass. Beer is dark almost black. Head is light tan. Head is two fingers thick a fairly dense. Some lacing sticks around. Aroma is malty with roasted notes. Taste is lightly bitter and medium sweet with notes of roasted malts. Some hints of vanilla and chocolate. Medium bodied beer with average carbonation. Not as sweet as I expected being a milk stout but overall a solid enjoyable stout. Good value for under $6. Will likely purchase again.
