Recently saw on Horny Goat's Facebook page that they had refined their recipe for this Milk Stout. Figured we were in the change of seasons so I would give it a try.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown. Not as dark as some other stouts but still quite a dark beer. Great (over 1 inch) head that leaves a strong lacing.

Smell: Sweet smells of the coffee and chocolate dominate.

Taste: Light flavor consisting of mild roast malts, coffee notes, and chocolate. All creating a nice balance that is sweet and a little bitter bite to finish.

Mouthfeel: A lighter mouthfeel to this stout.

Overall: A good brew that is worth a try. This makes a great beer for people who are hesitant to transfer to the craft beers.

Pours a jet black color with no carbonation but a nice tan head.
Smell has a nice strong cocoa aroma. A bit of a nice milky sweetness as well.
Taste has a really nice burnt, roasted malt to it. A strong shot of milky chocolate sweetness balances the roasted malts nicely.
A medium body with a little bit of chewiness to it.
Drinkability is nice on this beer. A good balance of flavors makes this beer stand out, but go down easy. Definitely a good beer for a session to sit down and drink a six pack, or more...

This was one of the more drinkable horny goats. You could guzzle these stouts all day. It actually went great with a heavy pizza.

This is a water looking, smelling and tasting stout with a nice roasty flavor. The balance is just right making for an easy drinking experience. I'd like to see where they would go with a double version of this. It's sweet, but not too sweet. Just a bit hoppy. Nice.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cola color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of coffee, some chocolate. Taste is the same, a bit mild. Coffee up front, a bit of chocolate at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Web-like lacing sticks.

The smell is of roasted dark malt, some lactose and chocolate.

The taste is of chocolate, some coffee and a drop of milk. Sweet with a semi-dry, slightly sour finish.

It has a creamy body.

Not as lactic/sour as other examples of the style. It does have a creamy, milk-like texture though.

A - A very clear dark brown, not nearly as one would expect for a milk stout. Color of the head is a mild opaque.

S - Smells of mild roast malts, a touch of lactose, and a nice balance of coffee and chocolate.

T - Not bad it drinks better than your typical light version of Guinness. Roasted malts are a tad subdued making way to sweet sugars and a touch of coffee/chocolate like malts. Slightly enjoyable.

M - Light and kind of watery but more body than I expected for such a poor example of the style.

Overall you could in theory pound these all day but why waste money on a whole case when their are better examples of the style. Still with no off flavors and decent taste this is not a bad milk stout.

Got this from a mixed 12-pack.

Poured a very dark brown almost black color with a tan head. Sweet smell with some chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor is very light, sweet with some malt to it. Chocolate flavor with a bitter finish. Smooth drinking beer. I liked it, but I probably couldn't drink too many of them in an evening.

Appearance: Stacked pours a black color and has some reddish hues to it like a porter normally would look, not a whole lot of light shines through but enough to see the red. It is topped with ½” of tan colored head.
Smell: This beer smells of roasted malts and coffee aromas, tasty smelling beer.
Taste: The taste is a bit disappointing the roasted and coffee flavors don’t pop like I would expect it to but it does have the creaminess that a milk stout should.
Mouthfeel: This is a quite a bit on the thin bodied side and while it is easy to drink the flavor doesn’t hang around long enough to enjoy it.
