Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout
Wow, long time no write! That's what having a kegerator at home does... Here's an absolutely delicious beer to break the drought!
A trip or two ago here in Atlanta I found an awesome beer store with a terrific, always changing selection. That's JUST what I needed to make things more bearable - the 4 'acceptable' beers at the Kroger were boring the crap out of me!
This time I stumbled across The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery from Farmville, North Carolina. They've gone so far to print 'The Dark Beer Specialists' on the bottle of their Milk Stout - pretty bold!
The bio for the Milk Stout:
The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout is a traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.
So how's it taste?
This is a DARK stout meaning lots of rich, toasted hoppy flavour. MOST beers in this family have quite the edge. This Milk Stout has all the flavour of a heavy stout but with a delightful finish. I guess if you were to describe drinking a normal stout this dark, the flavour would be like Evil Kenevil doing a crazy jump over a dozen school buses, where you hold your breath on the landing, see a little wiggle from the bike but it turns out ok. The Milk Stout is exactly the same thing except somewhere over the 11th bus Evil Kenevil sheds his motorcycle, clothes and lands in a hot tub full of naked Suicide Girls instead. Yes, it's that smooth.
I want, nay, NEED to try some more beers from Duck-Rabbit. Seriously. Check them out!
