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.

A: Dark black with a dark tan head. Lacing clings to the glass as you drink it.

S: Chocolate, spicy hops, coffee, toast.

T: Starts smooth with decent balance but it leans a little toward the bitter side on the finish

M: SO creamy and mouth filling. Rich, decadent, very satisfying.

O: This is a good beer. Not a terribly complex stout.

On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a dark brown color. Nearly black. A small tan head forms, but recedes to nothing. Light lace.
S: Not much in the nose. Musky and dank, like wet cloths. astringent, slightly acrid malts. Light roast and coffee, some chocolate.
T: Follows the nose, but the dankness is gone and not quite as astringent. More milk chocolate flavors come out. Some roast and coffee as well.
M/D: A light to medium body. Thin carbonation and is pretty watery. Not hard to drink. I will put back the pint without a problem. That is it though.

Just ho hum. A little below average at best. Not something I am going to come back to.

A - Pours black with a rich tan head. Decent retention and moderate lacing.

S - Toasted marshmallow and sweet milk chocolate create a soothing and enticing aroma. Roasted aromas are smooth and sweet.

T - Plenty of sweetness from the lactose sugar, but far from cloying thanks to suble hop bitterness and hints of coffee. Overall a very well-balanced and flavorful stout.

M - Full bodied with a creamy finish. This heavy beer is made very palatable by ample carbonation.

O - This was a real treat, and I'm very glad that I had a chance to try it. It's one of the best examples of the style that I've had.
