Pours a dark brown color with creamy white head, good retention and nice lacing. Smells of roasted malt, cocoa, and subtle coffee notes. Tastes of milk chocolate and roasted malt with a light coffee bitter finish mixed with a hint of lactose and chalk. Medium to medium light in body, a little thin, but creamy and smooth with a lightly bitter finish. A light porter with some good flavors and a nice creaminess to it.

Traditional porter recipe, with a twist: the caramel malt is replaced by lactose.

I had some at the pub, and took home a growler to take notes and enjoy. Here's what I wrote:

"Milk Porter

Thoroughly black at the top, more reddish brown below. slim white layer of foam.

Aroma of cocoa and cream.

Taste: moderate carbonation. Sweetness abounds, very smooth, lack of bitterness. The lactose which supplanted the usual caramel malt dominates the flavor. "

I finished the growler like nothing, and found these notes lacking. The notes sat on the desktop, waiting for further appraisal. Another growler went down the hatch, and realized no further notes were needed. Sometimes simple is good.
So there.

Dark, deep, clear crimson. Thin creamy light brown head. Lace comes in moderate amounts. Great blend of cocoa, roasted malts, milk sugar, chocolate and vanilla on the nose. Taste is smooth and evenly balanced on the palate. The milky chocolate is slightly more dominant than the roast tones. But the blend of everything is very enjoyable. The lactose sweetness. The mocha like chocolate character. And the slight fudge notes. Very well done.
