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.

Sample at Prohibition. The beer pours black with a medium khaki head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roast malt, chocolate and black licorice in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, milk chocolate, mild hops and anise. The finish is roasty with a chocolate malt and black licorice aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
