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.

Keg at Brew Dock, Dublin, 28/06/15. Pitch black with a solid dirty tan head that dissipates but retains, good lacingensues. Let this jjuan site nearly 15 minutes before I raked it and it still looked bo shizzl - solid 5 appearance being offered. Nose is roast malt, Chocolate, toffee fudge, light coffee, spice trace. Taste carries light coffee grinds, sweet chocolate fondue, light charr, toffee fudge, trace molasses, dark fruit tickle. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light roast. Solid sweet stout, top draw for style, great balance.

mcberko (9343) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Black Sheep, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out dry oats upfront - very dry and bitter. Flavour is quite rich and robust, with oats, dry cocoa and a light bitterness. Quite full-bodied and well-balanced. Very good stuff.

BBE Mar/05/2015, LOT 059
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

Bottle pour into a wine glass. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has ashy chocolate with some caramel peaking through. Maybe some raisin as well. The taste is moderately sweet. The chocolate comes through nicely. Lighter to medium body and medium to higher carbonation. Very nice beer.
