Lancaster “Milk Stout”

      As of late craft beer is really gaining respect. Along with that people are really starting to understand how versatile beer is along with and in food! Beer and food pairings are becoming major events. Craft Beer is being used in entrées and desserts in amazingly creative ways. I have mentioned Beer Floats in the past as a very easy beer dessert that anyone at home can make. But have you ever considered mixing different beers to create something new? It can be done! We all know about the “Black and Tan”, but I am talking about more interesting beer combinations! I recently picked up a stout that is one half of my favorite beer combo.
       Lancaster Brewing Company’sMilk Stout” pours a dark almost black with a three finger thick brown head. The aroma is chocolaty with roasted coffee and dark fruit. The taste is much like the smell with chocolate, coffee, caramel, and hazel nut. The finish is dry and bitter with a dark chocolate flavor. The after taste is chocolaty and roasty with a hint of alcohol. The mouthfeel is on the thin side with soft carbonation. The 5.3% ABV never distracts from the sweet chocolate, and coffee flavors. This Milk Stout is great alone, with ice cream, OR mixed with Lancaster Brewing Co.’s “Strawberry Wheat” beer. It tastes just like a chocolate covered strawberry! You will amaze your friends! Here’s to Good Beers!

    I had this a couple years ago and didn’t think to highly of it. I wonder if they changd the formula. Have you had this before??

      Rick, I have had this many times. I especially loved it at the Lancaster Brewery! It is not the most full bodied stout. But for a sweet stout, I quite like it!

    I honestly thought this beer left a heavy whey protein isolate taste in my mouth. I suppose that should be expected since it is a milk stout but it honestly reminded me of the protein drink isopure. Do you think this will get better with age? I made the mistake of buying a whole case with high hopes.

      Aaron,

      I would think that some age may do it some justice. I’ve never encountered that problem with this brew. Although I have not had any from this years batch. Hope the beer gets better over time for ya! Nothing worse than being stuck with brews you are not happy with! Cheers!
