Lancaster Milk Stout

Type: milk stout
Origin: Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania
ABV: 5.3%

         Another free one from Chris' monthly brew collection which I think punished him over the past few months.  He reviewed this 6 months ago and I think he agrees with most of what I'm saying.  I think he gave this to me because the ABV is lower than his required 9%.  I'm not one to complain.
         I must admit, this is the first milk stout I've ever had, so I don't really have a baseline for what a good milk stout (or any milk beer) should be.  I do know what good beer is, and this one is not too shabby.  There is nothing in this beer that is blatantly obvious or unique besides the nose does have quite a strong chocolate milk smell.  It is fairly bitter (in the way of a dark roast coffee) from the malts, and does have a nice milky texture that definitely leaves you satisfied (I'm still waiting for Samer to speak that line while drinking beer so we can make fun of him some more).

By the end of this brew, I am definitely digging it and wanting more, so I guess thats a good sign.
