COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The combination of four different malts, along with a low hop level creates a deep dark beer featuring rich, sweet roasted flavors. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) adds complexity, body, and a residual sweetness lending a smooth creamy texture to this full-flavored brew. Once a Seasonal offering in the pub, now prominently featured due to popular demand.

Nice head but died off quickly. Very black. Thin to pour. Not much aroma. Sweet and strong.

Dark but thin pour. More dark brown than the used oil black of some stouts. Strong coffee aroma, with some vanilla and chocolate too. Sweet on the tongue, rather flat with a sour end. I get the "milkshake" in the taste, but its more reminiscent of a malt to me. Its smooth, but not special.

Dark brown. Thin head, no lacing. Thick. Very roasty. despite the description not very sweet after sitting on the palate.. With a name like milk shake I was wanting a lot more dessert. Thx Arminjewell

Cybercat (5562) - Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Can. Pours coffee brown with a thin tan head. Aroma offers roast malt, chocolate and chocolate tones. Flavor delivers chocolate, roast malt, coffee, and subtle caramel tones. Mouthfeel presents decent fizz and body. Shake it up!

BREWMUSKCLES (2646) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2016
its like a nice milkshake only a little beery. but really like a creamy chocolate milkshake with a milk like froth and like evaporated milk. vanilla like cream. I like it. its satisfying and not strong as one might surmise. not bad at all.

Cantabrian (1101) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 5, 2016
Aroma: I get dark chocolates, malts, a tangy cranberry zing, a much cleaner, purer powdered milk aroma than, say, a Cassels Milk Stout. Appearance: Dark brown, tan super creamy head, with soapy, rainbow micro-bubbles on the rim. Taste: A perfect Mexican malteada. Sweet, malty, with the lovely flavour of raw, dark Royce chocolates. That ideal Spanish-made Nesquick flavour (NOT UK or Germany or Australia, please). And although it has none of the roasty bitterness of the oatmeal stouts and none of the excessive hops of so many US-made stouts, this lack of bitterness does not make the beer cloying sweet at all. Perhaps that tangy cranberry molecule from the aroma is making the difference. Absolutely gorgeous flavours. Palate: Creamy, velvety. Theres actually a decent body, but at the same time it is super easy to drink. Disappears in no time. Overall: This may not be my favouritest beer ever, but it is an almost perfect sweet stout, so unfairly underrated here.

Dogbrick (12596) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2016
This brew pours a dark brown color with a bit of mahogany around the edges, and a medium frothy tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Chocolate, malt and vanilla aromas. Light-bodied with flavors of fudge, roasted malt, and vanilla coffee. The finish is sweet with a chocolatey aftertaste. Above average overall.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Pint can from VE. Nose nice dark roast, and surprisingly dry to my sniffer. Pour darker-than-cola brown with a large and foamy tan head. Light-watery body with low sweetness (surprising for style) and a high level of roast, not too much scorch, more on the nuttier side. Lightly airy, minimal fruit in the background, and some booze seeping through. Sort of aloof, distances itself from you, and as we all know, were often attracted to the things we cant have. Like the novelty here, though they call it a milk stout, a lot more like Beamish or Guinness than a syrupy-chocolaty mouth-filler. Dangerously repeatable, would love to have this again.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a black color with an enormous creamy-soapy brown head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish and toasty with notes of vanilla, marshmallow and chocolate. The flavor was toasty and mildly bitter with chocolate, vanilla and a lactic note. Long toasty chocolate and almost marshmallow finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Solid.
