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.

16oz can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of roasted malt and molasses. Opaque black color, Heavy, rocky brown head that drops to two-fingers, stripes and bands of lace. Taste is velvety chocolate malt that is lightly roasted. It moves through medium carbonation to a finish that shows light hops as well as light alcohol. A solid Stout by any measure. I wonder if it would work as the base for an ice cream soda? Good stuff.

damn good first impression! It is sweet, but doesn’t cross the line into cloying. Assertive dark roast with milk sweetness. I’m fine with it. 16ounce can

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.
