Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Taking America Back. Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your palate. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.

After you pour hard you get a wonderful black stout in your glass with a beautiful tan head. The aroma is a French vanilla mocha, very sweet. It gets you excited to drink it. You take a drink and its so smooth its like its from jesus himself. Left hands nitro milk stout is an amazing beer that nobody should pass up! The only place I can say it lost points was because it had a thinner mouthfeel than I was looking for. All in all 4.5/5

Favorite beer HANDS DOWN. Never has there ever been a stout that made me so happy. Almost no carbonation, creamy, coffee-y, chocolatey, vanilla-y...absolutely incredible. I don't throw these things back like I do with other beers, I truly savor every sip. Kicking back in the backyard looking out at the mountains drinking a nitro milk stout...nothing better.

Had this on tap into a mason jar type glass; not my preferred choice of glassware but I was with a friend and didn't feel like complaining to an otherwise nice barmaid. Look was great like a rich dark chocolate color with a nice tannish head that stuck around for a while. Aroma was a milky chocolate with roast malt as was the taste, but the taste and feel was a bit thinner than what I was expecting. It's possible that I've been spoiled by more robust recent stouts and didn't evaluate properly for the style.

Pours near black, that's as dense as it gets. This is one sooth stout. Nothing overpowering, nice balance of malt, hops, notes of coffee & chocolate. Mouth feel is luxurious. Would surely buy again.

As a stout lover, this is one of my favorite beers. Its appearance in the glass is exactly as a stout should be: pitch black with a robust, smooth head. Its smell is a mellow, but comforting smoky chocolate aroma with hints of coffee. The flavor follows up on this with a malty, roasted flavor, very smoky, with hints of chocolate and coffee. The mouth feel is smooth, sweet, and creamy; this one is a beer so full bodied you feel as though you could almost chew it. Overall, this is an excellent and satisfying stout best enjoyed with red meats and roasts, or by a fire on a cold winter evening.

What can I say about this one that hasn't been expressed before? This is the big one - the nitro that everyone carries, the company whose logo is plastered on every bar, the nitro stout everyone carries (with Guiness being relatively rare, here, albeit second). A fantastic brew every bit deserving of its complete ubiquity and domination of the market. Smooth, chocolatey, sweet, without interfering from any of the major players. Like drinking liquid silk.

I've had only one other chocolate stout better. It's very good.

Poured into a pillsner glass very dark with medium body. Very light brown lacing. Smell is faint vanilla and coffee
Taste is wonderfully complex, sweet brown sugar, coffee, vanilla, cream and roasted malt. Finish is slightly bitter like dark chocolate. All well balanced to make this an excellent milk stout. Mouth is medium. The nitrogen makes it silky smooth with only slight carbonation noticeable. I will come back again for this one.
