Several years ago, these guys were kind enough to sell us their old brewhouse when they were upgrading to a new one and thus the story begins. These old converted dairy tanks had been used to make some award winning beers at Alesmith and now with us. AND what better way to honor these tanks than to brew a collaboration beer called Dairy Tank?? This delicious milk stout is sure to please and was brewed in the very brewhouse discussed above.

Bottle. Coco, creamy, sweet, rich, high carb for the style, butterscotch, a little sticky. Light body. Pretty good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (10651) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a mid-sized, lightly tanned head. The aroma is evocative of brownie brittle soaked in espresso. I’ve never done it, but now I want to. Full-bodied and creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor is big, hearty, chocolaty and bittersweet. Lengthy dark-mocha finish flanked by a burnt marshmallow aftertaste. Bottle provided by 50belair!

On draft. Near black pour, with a tan head. Lots of chocolate flavor, sweet lactose, licorice, dark chocolate, and notes of dark fruit. Not too sweet, decent.

This is a big one. The imperial in the name is well used. But still retains those base flavors you would expect from a milk stout. There is a filling cream note here and loads of chocolate to me. Great backstory on the tanks as well.

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong dark chocolate, oak, and licorice. Medium mouthfeel with rich chocolate, and dark fruit, and black licorice. Very good.

Tart grape choc aroma come from this dark brown clear brew. Medium bodied with a chocolate flavor with a little tartness added. A decent brew worth a buy
