Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Black as coal. Gorgeous toffee colored head excellent lacing

Aroma big nose of cocoa, with a little coffee, with a sweet scent all it's own

Taste Chocolate, first then coffee with half and half…finishes back to cocoa

Mouthfeel, one of the smoothest I've ever had, very dry finish. this is an outstanding beer to talk over. Warm and embracing

Overall, I have tried this and Left hand in the type and thoroughly enjoyed this one. Look for it, ask for it, and demand it. You won't be disappointed

Duck Rabbit's Milk Stout is as black as the Ace of Spades. Not a ray of light penetrates the body. A head of dense milk chocolate colored foam sits atop with no intention of going anywhere. Drink lines cling to the glass as if their lives depended upon it. When I drink milk stouts I want them to look just like this one.

A big coffee and cream presence wraps itself around a moderate roast. The coffee notes are smooth and the lactose adds an inviting creamy sweetness. Nuttiness adds depth in the form of hazelnut. A deep whiff brings up soft notes of herbal hoppiness and peppery alcohol, also soft.

Somehow the flavor profile manages to be even more enticing than the nose. Coffee again up front with a dash of cream. The added lactose creates a nice sweetness that balances out the roast. Hazelnut washes over the tastebuds mid-palate and remains through the finish. Dark berries are present as well and weren't noticeable in the nose. Soft herbals finish it off. This is a damn fine, robust, milk stout.

Creaminess washes over your tongue immediately. The body is so velvety smooth it feels as if there's a good heft but in reality it's medium bodied. That medium body makes for incredible drinkability. The finish dries up fairly fast and leaves behind a mildly bitter roast.

Duck Rabbit can do some great things. Their milk stout falls into that category. It's creamy and rich with bold flavors but remains extremely drinkable. The balance is there. This needs to be purchased by the case.
