Duck-Rabbit Milk StoutDuck-Rabbit Milk Stout

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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Enormous tan head - it's rather difficult to make it impossible, lots of lacing, very dark brown brew, a little cloudy.

S - Faint coffee and dates. Also an aroma that is a little off-putting, slightly metallic with a pungent woodsy or mossy aroma.

T - Sweet coffee, cola and forest floor. A bit of mud. Aftertaste is lingering bitter forest floor. Overall good.

M - Smooth, thick, refreshing.

D - Pretty good. It is enjoyable - I'd definitely have again.

Pours black with a red hue and a small tan head.

The smell is dark roasted malts and coffee.

The taste is milky, roasted malts.

The mouthfeel is light and creamy with medium carbonation.

Overall I a decent easy drinking stout. All the roasty and milky flavors are there as you expect.

Very dark brown, nearly pitch black, with a 3 finger chunky/clingy tannish head.

Almost fruity just after the pour. Aroma of toasted nuts and burnt malt. Kind of woody.

A bit of sweet malt upfront with hints of chocolate milk. Plenty of roastiness and the biterness associated with it. Tart in the end.

Milky as is expected. Medium thick in body with plenty of carbonation.

A decent brew. A bit dry for my taste, but a pleasant drinking experience nonetheless.

Dark brown with a very large tan head with very good retention and lacing. The aroma has chocolate, roasted malt, and cocoa.

Tastes just like the aroma suggests it should. Milk chocolate, roasted malt, and cocoa. Sweet, with bitterness provided by the roasted malt, as expected. Nice balance. Neither the sweetness, nor the bitterness from the roasted malt, are too strong. They balance nicely together.

Medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat creamy. Very nice.

Poured into a glass mug.

A: Clear dark red-brown with three-finger, tan, foamy head that lasted several minutes. Okay lacing.

S: Chocolate, milk, malt.

T: Moderate to high sweetness and light hop bitterness. Kind of a bittersweet chocolate taste along with the milk. Toasty, nutty finish. Delicious.

M: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Creamy and smooth.

O: This is a pretty good milk stout. Although the nose isn't that great, I think the taste is one of the best of the milk stouts I've had.
