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.

My favorite milk stout, and also the first I've had. Haven't had any others compare as of yet.

4/5  rDev +3.1%

poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance (4.25): black with a thin light brown head

Smell (4): Sweet chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit. On the sweet side

Taste (4): Dark fruit and grains upfront then roasted malts and chocolate to finish it off throughout the aftertaste

Mouthfeel (3.75): Very light body for a stout, almost watery

Overall (4): I found the initial taste very uninspiring, but it faded into an enjoyable roasted malt character. The only thing I will complain about is the light body. I think it's solid as a regular or sweet stout, but lacks as a milk stout. It's tasty nonetheless
