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.

Draft. Deep brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Flavor follows with some light residual sweetness and a light mineral quality in the finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Solid except for the slight mineral taste.

$3.65 pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours nearly black with a large brown head. Aroma is sweet chocolates, lightly floral, oatmeal. Taste is chocolate milk and coffee, or iced coffee with cream. Sweet and delicious.

MetalNHopHead (1153) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - APR 21, 2016
Call me obtuse but I donít understand a damn thing about 35Kís cool-but-weird can art or the cryptic deScription. Still, Iím fully on board with the beer inside. Wow, thatís a pretty pour. Black body with a creamy head that slowly billows to an even, tight blanket of foam. 35K has a real thick pour and a real full body for a Stout thatís not quite an Imperial. This beer seems huge for the moderate 7%. Velvety feel - not too much warmth, but pretty viscous. Delicious milky chocolate flavor. Iím still getting acquainted with AtG, yet I feel this will be a long-standing favorite.

Nice deep dark color and head. Heavy aromas of chocolate and coffee. Sweet and creamy chocolate and coffee flavors with a nice bitterness at the end.

DocJitsu (1532) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a short, rich, caramel-colored head. Dark roasted malt nose with chocolate and smoky notes. Given the nose, the flavors of the beer are no surprise. Moderately thick on the palate. Good stout.

Beachmaster (355) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Can into a pint glass. Pours black with a medium tan head. Good lacing. Nose is coffee and dark chocolate, and the taste follows. Slightly sweet as a milk stout should be. Good stuff.

BroSpud (2007) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 12, 2016
16oz can. Pours black with a tan head. Defiitely one of the better milk stouts I have tasted mostly because the lactose is so well offset by the burnt roast flavors of the malt so itís not as sweet as most of the other ones out there.

I saw these guys are now selling their beer in cans and I had to pick it up. This will be my first Against the Grain beer, and I am very impressed. Pours a jet black with a brown foam head. Aroma is chocolate, char, roast, lactose, and some earthiness. Flavor is sweet lactose, chocolate, some roast, and a touch of earthiness. The lactose is well-balanced. It doesnít stand out much and adds just the right amount of sweetness. Delicious.

Can, part of Mr. Goodbarís good beer club. Dark jet black pour, heavy, roasty. No gimmicky flavors, just a nice smooth dark stout. Very well made.

Gerbeer (2811) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2016
A pint sized can. Pours black with full tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate and roasted malts. Flavors of dark chocolate, creamy sweet coffee, and bitter roasted malts. Initially smooth with a bit of sharp finish.
