This beer intrigued me at the start of my craft beer interest. "Milk stout... sounds odd, but I'd like to try it", I thought. It was close to what I imagined. Something like a cream stout. Sweet and creamy. I was sold.

Appearance: Nice and dark. I love stouts. A tinge or red on the edges, but otherwise very dark. Tan head, doesn't stick around very long.

Smell: Sweet cream, vanilla, chocolate

Taste: Sweet, creamy, vanilla, chocolate, coffee finish. Not very bitter.

Mouthfeel: Not as thick as I'd like, but good. I'd prefer it to be a bit creamier feeling.

Overall: This is my goto, year round, readily available stout. Being near Lancaster, it's a bonus, as I can find this beer EVERYWHERE!

Having this side-by-side with Terrapin's Moo-Hoo, this one pales in comparison. This is still a solid choice, but the flavor is more simple and the feel is more thin than I'd like in a milk stout. It makes it more of a stout you'd sip on on a hot summer day, but it's more simple. Solid chocolate flavor with a good roastiness... it does about everything you'd want in a milk stout to a tee, but it's a bit thin, and I just didn't enjoy the flavor quite as much as Moo-Hoo. This would be an easy one to enjoy in any situation. Quite light and tasty, just nothing extraordinary.
