BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
cartonbrewing.com

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The key to a sessionable beer is the way it evolves over time well spent. Here we took an extremely dark malt bill and dulled its edges with the addition of lactose and nitro conditioning, then we wafted black currant notes of Bullion hops through the middle. Nuanced to keep it an interesting part of a gathering while neither dominating nor being inconsequential to banter. Drink Carton Of Milk because it does a session good.

Session stout! Splendiforous charcoal bite with a light clean finish. Session = low ABV...yet taste stands tall.

Poured from a growler. Love the delicious roasted flavour, which is definitely the highlight on this one. And it also has a nice mouth feel for the ABV.

Had a pint at Owl Farm and loved it. It's a deep, flavorful milk stout with the drinkability of a great dry stout. There are big roasted cocoa and fresh coffee tastes, and then the lactose sweetness slides in to balance the beer. Great balance, fun to drink, go get a glass.

Love the roasty malts here. Such an interesting beer. Nice smooth mouth feel and just a little bit of sweetness in there to. Hats off to carton once again.
