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.

Bitter cocoa and light coffee aroma, looks great in the glass, from a can . Some coffee bitterness, but just slightly too much lactose for my liking. I know it’s a sweet stout, or milk stout, but I prefer a slight bitterness to the finish.
