Bought a Tröegs variety pack after staying next to their new brewery in Hershey a few weeks ago. So far, Porter :thumb: , wheat :thumbdown: (too much of a banana taste).

Encountered Randy at the Shaler Giant Eagle tonight. Good dude. I then betrayed him and didn't get anything at Giant Eagle but picked up a little four-pack mixer at Whole Foods. Troeg's Mad Elf (what is this doing on a mix and match shelf?), Full Pint Night of the Living Stout, Samuel Smith Taddy Porter, Murphy's Stout. Solid for $11.

I really enjoyed Hofbrau Oktoberfest..... Also had Weyerbacher Imperial Stout, not a fan.

No, how is it? I am a stout fan (my brewing experience consists of a batch of stout) but have read that milk stouts are very low in alcohol content. It was described as a woman's beer (in contrast to a bitter or pale ale for men) in the English pubs.

Funny, from Wikipedia:

Milk stout

Milk stout (also called sweet stout or cream stout) is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Because lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, it adds sweetness, body, and calories to the finished beer. Milk stout was claimed to be nutritious, and was given to nursing mothers,[16] along with other stouts, such as Guinness.[17] The classic surviving example of milk stout is Mackeson's,[18] for which the original brewers claimed that "each pint contains the energising carbohydrates of 10 ounces of pure dairy milk". In the period just after the Second World War when rationing was in place, the British government required brewers to remove the word "milk" from labels and adverts, and any imagery associated with milk.[19]


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk_stout#Milk_stout

Being that I am lactose intolerant I will have to avoid these.

Nice job, Benedict. Although, for $11, it's understandable.

What's up with a banana-tasting wheat beer?
That doesn't sound at all good.

The grains that they use in many hefeweizens have flavors that resemble those flavors in banana and cloves. It can be very enjoyable, but they don't add bananas to the beer in anyway.

I was in Cleveland this weekend and every time we go, we need to stop in at Fatheads for dinner. I had their maple bacon stout. It was very good. Didn't get much bacon taste, just a smokey taste but it was very good. Also had their double IPA. It was fantastic. A very good IPA. I asked about them possibly selling kegs. Good news is that they do, and the better news is that means my fiancee and I will be having Fatheads beer at our wedding.

Lancaster is 5.30%, which isn't strong, but it isn't weak either. It's a solid stout.

Don't mean to nitpick, but it's primarily the yeast that gives it the banana and clove flavor.

Friend of mine made a banana hefe a few years back. Might have been one of the best hefes that I ever had.

Not sure if I could drink more than 2 in a sitting though.

My wife stopped at Wegman's, and I asked her to pick me up a stout.

My love for stouts may be tested here. I absolutely despise oysters (love mussels though)...I didn't even know brewing beer with oysters was a thing. Supposed to be good though :pop:
