Duck-Rabbit Milk StoutDuck-Rabbit Milk Stout
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery
North Carolina, United States
duckrabbitbrewery.com

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout is a traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). Because lactose is unfermentable by brewer's yeast, it remains in the beer. The subtle sweetness and fullness of flavor imparted by this sugar balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains that give this delicious beer its black color. All year long, Milk Stout is our number one selling beer!

Duck Rabbit Milk Stout %5.7 ABV.
Eye: A very solid black body, tan head
Nose: coffee, sweet chocolate malts
Tongue: coffee, dark malty sweetness, roasty bitter after taste
Mouth: a bit heavier, slightly syrupy, super smooth going down
Overall: It is a really great stout that is super smooth and veltety with a nice bitter roasted coffee aftertaste. For some reason I didn't like this the first time I had it, but I tried their porter and liked it so I came back for a 2nd try with the stout and enjoyed it fully.

The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with an off-white to somewhat dark tan one finger head that dies at a nice slow pace and ends up leaving some nice looking spiderwebbing lacing in the wake. The smell had a super nice blend of dark roasty chocolate malts to coffee beans. Its an eloquent combination! The taste was bittersweet bliss between the chocolate and the coffee. There was the exact same aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat medium to heavy. I found myself sipping this, but it showed a superb carbonation running about my mouth and tongue. Overall, a very well done milk/sweet stout.

This wasn't my fav stout out of their offerings, there was an off after taste that I did not find appealing.

The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery "Milk Stout"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, label notched "...best by..." 6/17 and sampled on 05/27/17
$2 @ Weis Market #231, Conshohocken, PA

Look: Very deep mahogany, almost black body. Short head of creamy light tan. Average head retention and lacing.

Smell: Coffee and dark chocolate.

Taste: Caramel, coffee, and dark chocolate. Some burnt toast. Underlying fruitiness. Moderate bitterness but it's not "sweet", just sweetish, and then dry in the finish. Limited hop flavors appear in the background in the finish, leafy and floral.

Feel: Medium-light in body. Very smooth, soft carbonation.

This Milk Stout is Perfect in every way,
for what I wanted in a stout on this day.
Rich Belgian chocolate aromas and flavors, I must say.
So far I have enjoyed this Brewer's array
If dark brews you crave, this brand is your play.
Mighty Fine.

Bottle to goblet to start off my new years eve celebration. Loved this beer about 10 years ago when I had it in a beer if the month gift from brother Jon. It was great then, and still very nice now. Look is Dark black, off white head. Aroma is Toasted malt, smoke, salty oyster stout like aroma. Taste is bread, wine, malt. Thin feel for a stout, but smooth.

Deep amber color, brilliantly clear. Pale tan head, creamy and lingering.

Sweet chocolate milk aroma, gentle roast

Malty and somewhat sweet. Minimal stout roast flavors. Hits the mark as a sweeter stout.

Med-full body. Medium carbonation. Creamy and gentle on tongue.

A little big and thick for a milk stout, but a flavorful, easy drinking stout.
