A dark brew, Elda M. Milk Stout pours to a brown/black color with a sold head of foam that makes its presence known and holds its own for a while before falling into a thin coating of tiny bubbles as you drink. The beer pours out with the look of a very rich, heavy beer and it offers a tempting nose of roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee.

Elda M. Milk Stout offers a nice, memorable flavor that is what one would expect for the style. The flavor of roasty malt and chocolate dominate, but search further and you will notice a little bit of marshmallow/vanilla taste, coffee, and lactose. The beer has dessert- like qualities and while it leans toward the sweet side, it is still nicely balanced overall.

I have tried both the draft and bottled form of this beer and I find them very similar in overall quality and taste. The tapped version seemed a little creamier, but the bottled version is every bit as good with a flavor profile that is roasty, chocolaty, coffee- like, and fairly smooth. The beer has just enough hops and other qualities to keep it from becoming too sweet. The beer is medium to full- bodied but based on appearance alone, it seems like it is going to be even heavier. From the bottle, it has an aggressive personality, but once you taste it, you find that the body of the beer is more moderate than expected.

Milk stouts often hit the spot and this milk stout is certainly one that rates better than the average. It tastes best if allowed to warm up to about 50 degrees Fahrenheit so that the flavors can come out of hiding and display their best qualities. Try some if you find yourself in the Houston area and looking for a new beer product- you will be glad you did.

On tap at the Whip In during the RateBeer Winter Gathering.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a beige head. The aroma is very full with a lot of chocolate and roasted malt notes. There is also some sweetness which I guess is from the lactose. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, along with a touch of coffee. The beer is fairly sweet overall. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice milk stout.

Friend brought this back for me from Texas. 12oz bottle into a pint flass.

Pours a .5 finger fine, mocha colored head that dissipates quickly. Beer is pitch black but pretty thin. Lacing is non-existent. Pretty pedestrian.

Nose is heavy on the lactose. Sweet and creamy with some coca cola, roasted malt, and chocolate to round out the flavors. Moderately aromatic and pretty typical. But good.

Opens chocolate milk and cocoa. Waves and waves of lactose sugar smooth out the experience and give a nice, malt backbone. Very creamy. Some coke and roasted malt bitterness right at the end. Finishes with a nutty bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet. Pretty enjoyable.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and silky in the mouth and goes down with just the slightest bit of bubbles. Finishes coarse with a lingering, filmy aftertaste. Pretty good for the style.

This is a pretty good beer. The lactose presence is very big and even though its pretty one-dimensional, the chocolate, roast, and lactose sweetness are all well integrated. Would drink again!
