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

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!

Soft black in color. Beige head formed a quarter-inch and sat.

Dusty cocoa, lactose, roasted malts, and an elusive note of smoke. Mild, malty, and very approachable.

More cocoa, now paired with medium-roast coffee, plusfeel lactose and mild licorice. Malts are roasty, but low on bitterness. Sweetness is mild-to-moderate with some latent tanginess--mostly in the finish. Dark fruit notes of prune and berry combine with a subtle fusel alcohol. Prototypical milk stout.

Drinks with a velvety body. Smooth and medium plus. Carbonation is nearly medium with a sparkling finish. Plus drinkability.

A solid milk stout with interesting malty flavors. Upper class, if not for some attenuation.
