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 aleís rich and complex maltiness.

swanmann (629) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle: Dark chocolate brown with an inch of well-sustained ashy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, booze. The taste is the same. It finishes smooth. The mouthfeel is slightly slick with soft carbonation. It holds up will with warming. Pretty awesome.

Bottle. Nose is full of chocolate and coffee. medium sized, tight brown head. good lacing. Taste has a lot going on. starts with a mouthful and seems thick and sweet, definitely letting you know there is a high finishing gravity. Then starts to chow off some chocolate sweetness and slowly reveals a light coffee roasted type of bitterness, but only as a secondary thought. light hop bitterness. Extremely well balanced throughout the entire sip. No sign of alcohol. This reminds me a lot of the Caribbean stouts. Well, except those are a lot cheaper.

cpetrone84 (1537) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pour is black with a good bit of mocha colored head. Nose has a heavy roasted malt, lots of berry sweetness and residual sugars, a fair bit of vanilla cream, and faint notes of milk chocolate. Taste has a lighter roast up front, milky vanilla cream, less sugars, a bit cleaner. Body is very creamy and soft, lower carb, a touch slick and thin.
