Milk Chocolate Stout
Decadent and complex while remaining wholly refreshing and drinkable. This Stout is brewed with Milk Sugars and Chocolate to give rich flavours and body that goes down smooth.
Taste of Chocolate and smooth mouthfeel, due to the additions of Dark Chocolate and Milk Sugars (Lactose) respectively. While dark, rich and decadent this beer finds balance and subtlety in its lightness and drinkability. Great for matching with sweeter dishes and intense desserts.
Speciality Malts - Oats, Munich, Chocolate, Crystal, Roast Barley
Hops (32 IBU) - Magnum, Cascade

JStax (3551) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle pour into a wine glass. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has ashy chocolate with some caramel peaking through. Maybe some raisin as well. The taste is moderately sweet. The chocolate comes through nicely. Lighter to medium body and medium to higher carbonation. Very nice beer.

mcberko (8738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Black Sheep, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out dry oats upfront - very dry and bitter. Flavour is quite rich and robust, with oats, dry cocoa and a light bitterness. Quite full-bodied and well-balanced. Very good stuff.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Servita dal cask la birra si presenta bruna con una bella schiuma compatta. L’aroma č di cioccolato al latte. Piuttosto bilanciata, tendente al dolce. Estremamente piacevole e beverina.
