Medium-bodied and black in color, this unique stout is brewed with thirty pounds of lactose, an unfermentable milk sugar that imparts a very smooth, roasty character in this “sweet” stout.

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

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color with ruby highlights; the modest cap leaves a few squiggles of lace

Smell: Milk chocolate and tart cherry

Taste: Milk chocolate, up front, with the tart cherry flavors taking over in the mid-palate; chocolate-covered tart cherries linger into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This bottle has a few years of age and the lactose has become lactic; I understand that was not the original intent but I kind of like it

22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Purchased from the brewery back in early June, 2012.

A - Dark black body, impressive three finger high light mocha head. Solid lacing and retention. Beer settles down to a thin cap with thick edging.

S - Milk chocolate, coffee, roasty malts, light vanilla and a touch of lactic sugar sweetness.

T - Sweet with notes of milk chocolate and vanilla. Finishes lightly bitter with roasty malts and some of that distinctive sweet stout twang. Mouth feel leaves a lot to be desired. Somewhat on the thin side.

O - Pretty average milk stout. Still damn tasty and highly drinkable.
