12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours dense pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, coffee, and light toast. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of sweet dark malt notes; quite unique as well. Taste of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, coffee, and light toast. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, cocoa, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, and coffee on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of sweet dark malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice milk stout! Great balance and robustness of sweet dark malt flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

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.
