Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
We welcome the re-release of Cowcatcher Milk Stout, named in tribute to the railroads that surround our brewery. Originally brewed as a limited edition 10-barrel batch, resounding appeals convinced us to offer it from January through April. This surprisingly sessionable brew is as black as night. With one deep whiff of its thick tan head, you’ll immediately catch the aromas of rich cocoa and dark-roasted coffee beans. Swish it around your palate to savor its full-body and smooth mouthfeel. It boasts a warm pumpernickel-bready flavor and finishes with a touch of bittersweet chocolate. Enjoy this beer with dessert - brownies, chocolate chip cookies, or any rich, sweet treat.

Draft at Yard House-Springfield. Dark, muddy brown with small beige head. Barely there roast grain aroma leads into a fuller taste, but still not that robust. Some notes of chocolate as well, but not enough to push this one above average.

Nice blackish brown poured from tap at Kroger supermarket. Light head. Sweet chocolate aroma and similar taste. Smooth, lightly hopped and flavors of caramel and roasted malts

Nitro pour at the brewery. Black with thin nitro head. Very little nose, but smooth, silky mouthfeel with a dominant flavor of milk chocolate. Easy to drink, and overall enjoyable.

Awesome full mouthful that you want from a mil stout. This is an all around solid beer, but it has very little aroma. Strangely for such a potent taste. Chocolate and coffee is strong with this. Moderate bitterness that fades quickly.

12 oz can poured into a stemmed cylinder glass. I had this beer a year ago on tap, and it actually tasted better and fresher this time around out of the can. Jet black color, off-white head. Creamy, not sweet, and bold flavors. A solid milk stout, and I love supporting the local Virginia craft beer boom.
