Keegan Ales Mother’s Milk

Keegan Ales, Kingston, New York
Mother’s Milk Stout
6% ABV
16oz. draft

While you are in the Hudson Valley, drop by Keegan Ales in Kingston to sample some of their excellent offerings. We stopped by for lunch and the place was quiet, though evidently gets much more crowded in the evening.  You can read a bit about the history of Keegan Ales here, and also make sure you review the “Bad Habits to Avoid” when playing darts.

This excellent milk stout is on par with Duck Rabbit in terms of its delicious texture. It is very smooth and rich without too much sweetness. Note that milk stouts contain lactose, a sugar that contributes to the mouthfeel and overall flavor.  As a medium-bodied stout, this is very well-balanced, with chocolate malt forming the structured backbone.
