The Duck Rabbit Milk Stout

the-duck-rabbit-milk-stout

Another local beer for me tonight, and this one’s a bit of an area institution.  The Milk Stout is probably the most common local beer I see from The Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery in Farmville, North Carolina.  It’s a fairly mild milk stout, not as heavy and sweet as some, but with all of the right characteristics.  The nose is smokey, with hints of coffee and chocolate.  It’s a medium bodied beer, which is a little bit lighter than I was expecting, but that’s ok.  It gives the middle a skim milk texture, rather than the 2% of another milk stout.  The middle is sweet, as expected, with chocolate and orange flavors, and there’s molasses and a hint of espresso in the finish.  It doesn’t knock my socks off, but it’s a good beer.

I give it a 3.8 out of 5.
