Festivus, this year a milk-chocolate stout. Mmm-mmm.

Dark,dark brown, ...pert' near black, rocky, active, bubbling, popping head, a hearty cocoa tone.

Sweetness, chocolate, and roast hit the nose at first. creamy. There's the milk ...did I mention they added lactose? Earthy, inviting, and beautiful.

In the mouth, smooth, sweet, creamy, substantial...Hearty, yet clean and entirely drinkable...yum, chocolatey.

Yet solid. Stout. Full. And yet, easy. Easy, peasy, skeezy. You put down the glass, raise it again, drink some more, and it begins again. And everything is alright.

Serving type: growler

Looks beautiful. Black body with a thick dark brown head. Retention of this head is quite good and it also laces nicely as I drink. This beer smells like dry cocoa powder, roasted malts and barley and faint hints of smoke. The flavor follows suit with a lot of these characteristics. The mellow roasted malt flavors. Milk chocolate. Lactose sweetness. Very nicely balanced and flavorful. Nice body as well. The milk sugars add some viscosity. Very silky fell. One of the bette Milk Stouts I've had in a long time.

4.22/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark brown with ruby around the edges and a thin but sticky light-brown head.
S: Smells of sugars, caramel and pine.
T: Tastes similar to the smell. Lactose sugars stand out and finishes with the cool piney flavor.
M: Good body thickness. Really sticky; coats the mouth.
D: Of the half dozen milk stouts I've had, probably would rank 1 or 2. A good winter session beer.

Serving type: on-tap
