Our Winter stout offering is brewed with a hefty amount of 2-Row barley, as well as Victory, Munich, and Carapils malt. We round it out with some lactose sugar and flaked oats for sweetness and body. While the hops in this beer certainly don’t play a central role, we balance all that malt with a good dose of East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, and Wilamette hops.

This Milk Stout is the King of Milk Stouts. Thankfully, NCBC made it available in bottles today. Pours a deep brown-black with billowing head that slowly subsides with generous lacing. The taste is perfection with sweet dark chocolate, expresso and roasted malt bitters. As dark or darker and more opaque than any irish stout I have had. Feels and looks like a nitro brew, much more so than Left Hand which was my previous favorite. The hops are in perfect balance and only serve to enrich the complexity.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar; upon closer inspection the corners of the glass have hues of brownish red when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a half finger high tan head that gradually died down, leaving lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lactose are present in the nose along with notes of chocolate and roasted malts.
T: The initial taste has a burst of lactose flavors with notes of chocolate malts. Hints of dry, roasted malts start to creep in towards the finish along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with bits of smoothness from the lactose and dryness from the roasted malts.
O: This beer doesn't seem to be as sweet as many of the other beers in the style, but the lactose does offer interesting contrasts to the roasted malts in the smell, taste and mouthfeel. It is quite easy to drink.

22oz bottle poured into a Teku glass

Look: Like any stout should look; dark as night. There is a beautiful 1 finger khaki head that stays around pretty long. Minimal lacing present.

Smell: Very roasty. Tons of chocolate and a nice faint coffee scent. Smells sweet. Getting a slight cola scent I sometimes smell in lower ABV stouts.

Taste: Super sweet from the start. A ton of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Maybe even a slight peanut butter taste. Delicious!

Feel: Not as thick as most imperial stouts but absolutely perfect for the style. Has an almost pillowy mouthfeel. I could drink this all day but would be totally satisfied with just a 12 oz pour.

Overall: Wow. I didn't expect anything special when I grabbed this but knew that Neshaminy Creek delivers everytime and they sure did for this one! I would put this up there with Left Hand Nitro Stout. Very good!
