Review – Dairy Tank from Eagle Rock Brewing

The legend of the traveling dairy tank grows and is now immortalized in milk stout form with the collaboration of Eagle Rock with AleSmith.

As it was explained by the ERB, “Several years ago, AleSmith was kind enough to sell us their old brewhouse when they were upgrading to a new one and it seemed fitting pay homage to these tanks history by brewing a style that employs lactose sugar derived from milk.”


The new collab pours dark with a creamy head to it. Getting a mixture of chocolate and tar that really works together. But beware this does not taste 10% at all. It is a strong one that catches up with you while you are having your next round. It is also very smooth as opposed to lactose sweet. This is not only a pretty beer but a nice sipper. Makes me want more beers from both breweries.

  1. It looks like speedway with the rich, dark, creamy head. Looks very inviting. Nose is rich cocoa powder and coffee. It’s not sweet at all like Noble Naughty Sauce. It does not have the rich mouthfeel of speedway which is what makes Speedway work so darn well. The carbonation is a tad aggressive for this style imho which takes away from the richness that could have been achieved. OVerall, still a solid stout. Now I need to try more of Evil Twin’s offering in this style

  2. It is to me more AleSmith than Eagle Rock. But I find it deceptively easy to drink with a distinct chocolate milk note throughout.
