COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not your typical "Jelly of the Month Club" beer. Dark roasted malt and bittersweet cocoa and coffee flavor and aroma burst from this pitch black milk stout. The full body and sweetness are derived from the addition of lactose (aka milk sugar) which is not fermentable by beer yeast. A healthy dose of English Kent Goldings hops provides a counterpoint to this ale’s rich and complex maltiness.

Roasted malt and bitter chocolate start this brew out. The coffee pulls through in the end and lasts through the finish.

Coffee nose, light yeast. Black, thick sticky beige head. Coffee, beechwood, potting soil, sarsparilla accents. Good balance and transitions. Charred oak finish. Really dirties up the palate. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Good stuff.
