Milk Chocolate Stout
Decadent and complex while remaining wholly refreshing and drinkable. This Stout is brewed with Milk Sugars and Chocolate to give rich flavours and body that goes down smooth.
Taste of Chocolate and smooth mouthfeel, due to the additions of Dark Chocolate and Milk Sugars (Lactose) respectively. While dark, rich and decadent this beer finds balance and subtlety in its lightness and drinkability. Great for matching with sweeter dishes and intense desserts.

Draught at the brewpub. Black with a tan head. Coffee and roasted malt aroma. Sweet flavour with caramel, coffee grinds, roasted malt. It has the lactose sweetness but adds more complexity than the style usually exhibits. Medium body. Good stuff.

I find this so inconsistent, when its good its excellent, it looks great with average head and great flavour Up there with young double choc, when its bad it looks like a glass of cola and... well still tastes ok not great but with absolutely no lacing whatsoever which is a turn off for me.

Bottle, 500ml. Solid porter, never let’s me down. At this alcohol level, it really does pack a significant amount of flavour. Calorie count of 125 per 500ml leaves me skeptical! Staple in the beer cabinet.

The beer starts smooth and creamy. Roasted chocolate in the mainpart, slightly toffee-sweet. The aftertaste is smooth, chocolate with hints of espresso, nicely smooth roasted. In the last end there is a nice bitterness, that harmonises ideal with the rest of the roasted chocolate-flavour.
Very nice Sweet Stout! --> 13/13/14/14

beerfest5 (1204) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 4, 2014
Was expecting something to the effect of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, but this isn’t so ineffectual. This has a lovely serious bite to it. Thick pour into the pint glass, HUGE tan head that took awhile to dissipate, little to no lacing on the glass. Big chocolate and coffee aroma, some bitter hop resin. Bitter on the tongue like burnt coffee, then the sweetness of the chocolate and the smoothness of the milk sugars come through and add to the finish to make a fantastic beer.

Traditional milk stout with chocolate hints. Slightly peculiar taste but very enjoyable.

Deepdark stout with dark tan head that quickly fades. Aromas of burnt roasting, coffee anc chocolate. Surprisingly light and carbonated on palate. A lovely sweet light stout and easy drinking. I’d drink this again. From 500ml bottle in The Wine Centre Kilkenny.
