Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jimmys on 01-22-2012

The key to a sessionable beer is the way it evolves over time well spent. Here we took an extremely dark malt bill and smashed it against the sweetness of milk, then we wafted black currant notes of Bullion hops through the middle. Nuanced to keep it an interesting part of a gathering while neither dominating nor being inconsequential to banter. Drink Carton Of Milk because it does a session good.

From a growler, pours jet black with a thin ring of light brown head circling the top of the glass.

The nose is bitter hops, dark chocolate, lactose, a little roast and earthy notes to it. The flavor is bitter, dark malt, chocolate, caramel and a little heavy cream. The mouthfeel is bitter, clean, but bitter.

Overall, this is tasty, but for me this has a little bit too much bitter hop content and it overpowers the chocolate and lactose notes.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a dark brown almost black color. A nice 1" head lingers around a while before settling as a thin surface covering.

Smell: roasted malts are all you can detect.

Taste: roasted malts, hints of pumpernickel bread, light cream, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Light crispness to start followed by a smooth velvety finish.

Overall: a very easy to drink milk stout that hits the spot when you want one.

This beer is absolutely amazing. It would be a prefect 5 if the abv wasn't 4%. Flavor wise though its almost perfect.

Got to try this at the brewery. Here goes:

A: Looks quite good. Pours a huge head that leaves adequate lacing. The beer is also pitch black, i.e., espresso-colored.

S: Lots of burnt malt, lactose sugar, milk, and cream. The creaminess of the lactose sugar and the darkly-kilned, burnt malt go well together. However, these scents are somewhat subdued relative to other milk stouts that I've had. Just good.

T: Good, but somewhat light. Burnt malt mixed with lactose sugar (the latter mitigates the former somewhat). The tastes aren't as robust as I was hoping, but the beer is very sessionable.

F: Too light. Could use more malt.

O: Good beer with some drawbacks. Good overall, though.

32 oz growler poured into a shaker pint.

Near-black with 1 finger of creamy, tan head with good retention.

Nose
Roasted barley, milk chocolate, and caramel.

Roasted barley, earthy char, and bitter dark chocolate. Notes of caramel with a light, milky sweetness.

Light bodied, smooth, refreshing, and well balanced.

Overall
An excellent Milk Stout that is extremely quaffable.
