Stacked Milk Stout by Horny Goat Brewing Company

Are you ready for the football?  Well you better be for they are back and the Cowboys will be ripping it up this year…ripping it up in a good or bad way is yet to be determined though.  Oh well..go Cowboys!

Beer #239 is another Horny Goat Brewing Company product, day 5 of the Horny Goat fest, from Wisconsin.  Stacked Milk Stout is a Milk Stout, who would have thunk it?  The ABV of this fine brew (really?) is 4%.

Well it looked like a stout, it was a deep dark brown or quite possibly black.  It also had the nicest head of any of the Horny Goat beers yet, a nice thick tan topped this Stacked Goat.  This was another Horny Goat with a very light aroma of roasted coffee…it also has a bit of a sweet caramel malt thing going on in the nose.  The sweet caramel malts show up first in the taste and then morph into a bit o’ coffee & chocolate.  It was quite thin in the body with little in the way of carbonation.  It was trying to be smooth and creamy but it didn’t quite get there.  No alcohol presence whatsoever and the lightness of this make it super easy to drink.

This was the best Horny Goat I have had so far (and that’s not saying much)…it actually reminded me of…get this…beer or a Milk Stout in this case.  Amazing, a craft brewer actually making something akin to beer.  I’m going to rate it higher than I probably should only because it was the best Horny Goat I have had, I’m feeling generous, I’m very happy today, and it is my blog after all and I am a King…KingBob that is.  So there…

Milk Stout by Left Hand Brewing Company

The cold has gone the way of the dodo bird…it has left the building.  So why not celebrate with…hmm…what should I celebrate with?  Why a beer of course!

Beer #39 is Milk Stout by Left Hand Brewing Company.  This brew is a Milk/Sweet Stout with an ABV of 6%.  I love the label on this one, the funky cow with all of the left hands on it…good stuff.

Not quite black, more like a very dark brown with a non existent head was staring back at me from my pint glass.  The smell, wow it is so nice to be able to smell again, was sweet and chocolaty with roasted coffee aromas.  I took a sip and was hit by coffee, sweet coffee, with some nice roasted malty flavors.  I didn’t get chocolate like I did on the nose though.  The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with some nice tight carbonation going on.  The body was neither too heavy nor too light…it was just right!  The aftertaste reminded me of a good cup of black coffee.  To me, this was a very easy beer to drink.  I could easily have had a few more of these.

This is a very good brew…one I will get again…and again…and again!  Good stuff!!!
