This brew was a bit of a lucky find. I just popped into a little liquor store on the way to my in-law’s on the 4th of July and found this. I’d heard about this beer through a mentioning on Jalopnik’s oppositelock (off topic forum) some time ago. I wish I could remember who recommended it so that I could shake his hand (may have been NinetyQ or MR2_FTW), because this is my new favorite beer.
I should take a step back and mention that I am not just a beer drinker, but a coffee drinker as well. More like a coffee fiend, if I’m honest. And this Milk Stout has a hint of coffee to it that is delicious! In some ways the aftertaste reminds me a little of the Starbucks Doubleshot energy drink. I know what you’re thinking “GROSS!” but it’s not reminiscent of that in a bad way. It’s as far as I know, just milk and stout beer, but it tastes like a combination of beer and coffee. I liked it so much that I had 3 of them that night and almost completely ignored the Rogue American Amber Ale, that I bought at the same time just because it was the 4th.
When we had to leave and I decided to give one away to my brother in law to try, it almost hurt to give one up. haha That’s how good this is! This will probably become a regular on my shopping list from now on, assuming I can find it in a location closer to my house. I highly recommend you try it, especially if you’re a coffee lover. Instant favorite for me.
