Notes/Commercial Description:
We are proud to offer this traditional English Sweet Stout that's bursting with roasted barley flavor. A dark ale, Milk Stout has just a touch of sweetness provided by an addition of non-fermentable lactose sugar.

Smells of, go figure, lactose. That and roast coffee, touch of chicory. Nice, mellow...fits the style.

Formed a nice but rapid reducing tan head. Pitch black, can't see thru it at all. I know its opaque by looking at the bottom of the glass. No brussels lace to speak of. Thin rim of bubbles stayed around the rim of the glass.

Bit thin, watery. Not as creamy as I'd hoped.

Flavor comes on strong but dies quickly. Lactose then black patent are the first things I taste, but then falls flat. Touch of bitterness at the end which is probably from the roasted grains and not from the hops.

A- pours a deep black color with a beautiful brown head that fades into a small ring of lacing that lasts the entire glass.
S- don't really smell anything. Literally nothing score is low but very mellow coffee aroma.
T- very melo taste for a stout which I enjoy very much. Slightly bitter and slightly creamy. Balance is amazing with this beer.
M- very smooth full bodied beer with wonderful lingering sweet coffe bean flavor.
O- very well brewed and highly recommended. In one word, melo.
