3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught in Bloomington, under the name of Motherís Milk Stout, but thereís no doubt about it, itís definitely the UpCup winner put into production). Black/brown pour with a rocky, jiggly tan head. Nose has some roast but not much else. Dash of sweet lactose/sugar but not overdone at all, mashes well with the medium and dry roast. Low, crisp carbonation on the medium body, low acidity but it doesnít have the very creamy smoothness of some milk stouts (like Left Handís, though itís been a few years). Easy to drink in mass, enjoyed.

Served on draft at the Indianapolis tasting room. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of rich roasted malts and coffee. The taste is roasted malts, lactose and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.
