Lugene - Chocolate Milk Stout

Odell is a great regional brewer based in Ft. Collins and I stopped by the tasting room with Tibor and Dennis in early November.  Odell recently released a new beer in their 4-pack series call Lugene (8.5% ABV and ? IBU) a milk stout or sweet stout. Lugene is only available January – March.  The other offerings in the 4-pack series are Double Pilsner, Myrcenary, and Mountain Standard.  I have enjoyed, really enjoyed the other offerings in the 4-pack series and I added Lugene to my list.

Milk / Sweet Stout - – BeerAdvocate

Appearance – Lugene pours black with little to no head.
Aroma – Sweetness, chocolate, perhaps a touch of coffee and smoke.
Taste – One first tastes sweetness then chocolate and vanilla notes.  It has a finish with perhaps a touch of smoke and coffee but only a hint.  There is no bitterness with this beer.
Overall – A really nice milk stout and this would go great with deserts.  I think it would be fantastic with a fruit desert.

Lugene description – “If you’ve ever been to our brewery, you’ve likely seen the old, beat-up truck that hauls away our spent grain. That truck belongs to Lugene who’s been feeding his dairy cows the hearty malt for over a decade. Named in his honor, Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout is brewed with milk sugar and milk chocolate. The rich and creamy brew reminds us of a cold glass of chocolate milk and our hometown “Aggie” roots.”  Odell website
