A traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.

Pours black with medium body. Very small amount of head. A nice smooth cream flavor. I was very impressed and found that the sweet/cream flavoring did not overwhelm the stout as with Left Hand’s Milk Stout, which I think tastes more like a liquid Milk Dud.

Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a pitch black with a half-finger of beige head. Roasted coffee, prune and toasted granola. Medium body, great balance. Lingering chocolate and coffee notes. Touch of latte on the finish. I like this.

From 12 ounce bottle bought as part of a mix 6 pack from Ingles Supermarket in Lake Lure, North Carolina, tasted on July 26, 2017. Very dark brown/amber color, intense aroma of roasted malt/licorice/lactose/coffee/a bit of chocolate, good roasted malt/coffee/lactose flavor that’s not as big as the nose advertised but still quite decent.

Bottle from Harris Teeter, Hampstead, North Carolina. Dark reddish-brown with a thin off-white head. Has a sweet nose, with a mildly sweet dark malt taste rather than any stated roasted malts.

Nsanders (1155) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2017
Bottle. Black with a huge tan head, delaying pour. Creamer, milk chocolate, vanilla wafers and slight earthy aromas. Has a subtle chocolate milk flavor that is less sweet. Heavier body with a smooth feel.

Poured with little carbonation. Sweet aroma. Taste of mocha with a bit less sweetness. Thicker on the tongue but not heavy.wwll balanced. Sweet and bitter blend extremely. I usually only do stouts in winter but this has year round drinkabiliry due to its light yet complex flavors.

jc1762 (1544) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle poured into a pilsner showing pitch black with coffee black rims and very sparse latte colored foam. The nose shows a lactose sweet note throughout on top of a bed of roasted malts. The palate is light bodied with light carbonation. Immediate subtle lactose sweetness appears but closer to a soybean-like sweetness. Barely any bitterness. A bit thin on flavor all around and a very simple milk stout.
