Continuing with the Stouts - this one was from a sicker I snagged at A.K.A. Frisco’s in Frederick, MD while picking up some take-out for lunch yesterday.
Look: The brew appeared very dark with no light passing through. The head was at about 1-finger with a sandy tan color. Lacing was present, but not real impressive.
Smell: Peat smoke and a roasted earthy coffee bean character. The lactose was also noticeable along with some dark chocolate. A faint hop bouquet was mixed in to balance out the sweet component.
Taste: First up was the roasted coffee quality. The middle was the lactose sweetness hitting. Finish was a slight bitterness with some hops kicking in. The aftertaste had the roasted notes returning and fading into a lingering bitterness.
This was a very nice Milk Stout. I would have expected nothing less fro ST.
Serving type: bottle
