I picked up a sixer of Widmer's Snow Plow winter brew. It's a "Milk Stout" and is very tasty. It's mildy sweet, apparently from the lactose they use during the brewing process. The lactose is how the "milk" style gets its name. It takes the edge off the bitterness often associated with stouts and gives the beer a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It's not overly complex, but there's enough going on on your palate to intrigue even those who demand to be kicked in the teeth when they drink.
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
