Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee. Dark and delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. “Preconceived notions are the blinders on the road to enlightenment.” Udderly delightful.

I consider this a gateway to dark beer, and a premium one at that. If you don't mind malty sweetness, the balance of roast, lacto-sugar and chocolate make for stellar marks across the gamut of aesthetics... Smell, taste, touch (on the tongue), and even sound. You can't beat the fizz of C02. Many consider this the gold standard of America's sweet stouts, and I'm inclined (read: biased) to agree.
