Review: Lancaster Brewing Milk Stout

Lancaster Brewing Milk Stout
5.3% ABV
Lancaster Brewing Co., Wilkes-Barre, PA
12 oz bottle
Served in Dogfish Head Signature Glass
No date on bottle
Reviewed on 11/30/12

This stout pours a dark brown color with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates.  Mild carbonation.  Moderate lacing.

Smell consists of chocolate, milk, malt, slight licorice, some hops, coffee.

Taste consists of malt, chocolate, coffee, milk, some licorice, hops.  Fairly in line with its smell.

Mouthfeel is quite smooth with some good bitterness and a touch of dryness.  Nice, creamy feel on the palate.

Overall, this is a tasty, smooth milk stout with a good, consistent profile of flavors.  It has some good creaminess to it, and it gets mellow--if a bit on the thin side--as it comes up to temperature.  Fairly sessionable, if a stout can be sessionable.  Well worth it for the inexpensive price. 

My score: 88
