Do not be fooled by the mates from the pub, the cow pies are not made in a pastry shop. If you are looking for more sweetness in your life, reach for a stout with a pinch of lactose. The milky and coffee flavors, in this dark beer, will soften even the toughest guys. The Sweet Cow is the first polish beer brewed in genuinely British style, which is milk stout. The name comes from the ingredients used in the process of production. To be more specific, it comes from the milky sugar, which is added at the stage of cooking the wort.
Malts – Pale Ale, Wheat, Vienna, Carapils, Carafa; hops – Challanger, Fuggles; roasted barley; oatmeal; yeast S-04; lactose; water.

Mleczny stoucik z laktozą, piany prawie brak. Aromaty pszeniczne i czekoladowy. W smaku lekko kwaskowaty od kawy. Wysycenie niskie, dość pełny, aksamitnie wchodzący.

PawelD (54) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 14, 2014
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Piwo butelkowe. Kolor czarna smoła z bursztynowymi refleksami na spodzie pokalu. Ładna beżowa piana jednak szybko znikająca do zera i brak lacingu. W zapachu czuć mleczną czekoladę i kawę. W smaku mleczna czekolada, mielona kawa, kwastowatość i posmak w ustach jak po spaleniu papierosa. Naprawdę dobry stout z charakterem i chociaż nie cierpię papierosów, posmak który zostawia piwo jest naprawdę ciekawy.

Mejs (81) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Pours black with ruby reflexes on the sides, pretty hazy, with nice, big, long white head. Aroma is hints of coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Beer is really smooth, with nice chocolate-roasted taste. It has medium body and quite high carbonation, which makes it really filling you up. Bitterness on low, but nice level. Great beer, you’ll finish your bottle in seconds
