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.

A - Looks great! Poured with a 2 finger tan head and has nice long lasting lacing. Based on this my hopes were high

S - Yikes. Maybe I got a bad batch...but it smelled musty and dusty, almost like mildew. I smelled no chocolate, no milk, no alcohol, nothing but must.

T - Taste is a bit better. Very mild taste. Upfront I taste coconut and light chocolate...that is about it. edit: halfway through the beer, there is a caramel flavor in there too which does improve its taste. For this I am raising my original T rating of 3 to a 3.5

M - Pretty watery, with high carbonation. Despite those characteristics it does have a creamy feel, and it does fill me up quickly. Strange.

O - Hugely disappointed. Will not buy again.
