COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another experiment from Professor Wagner’s lab has broken free and broken out! X.4 Macchiato Milk Stout invades your local DuClaw Brewing Company Thursday February 17th, 2011. This classic sweet stout, is black in color and medium-full bodied, with a silky, velvety mouthfeel. X.4 boasts lush aromas and flavors of espresso, chocolate and roasted malt imparted by the addition of espresso verdi to the recipe. It is moderately strong in alcohol (6.3%) with just enough hops to balance the big roasted malt and coffee flavors.

Sample from 65cl bottle courtesy of Travlr@post TdG tasting 04/2013.
Creamy coffee in democratic doses, subtle residual hop bitterness. Great roast, lactic element is indeed rather milk powder. smooth, entry-level recipe of a milk stout, one of my favourite styles.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2013
bomber courtesy of Travlr @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Brune foncée, col beige léger. Arôme malté, grillé, café léger suivi de bonnes notes grillées et lactose pour un bouquet tirant fortement sur le moka. Palais est complexe, sec, malts variés grillés, café avec une douceur ajoutée venant du lactose. En toute fin de bouche un léger biscuité se fait présent, le tout sur une effervescence moyenne.
