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.
Speciality Malts - Oats, Munich, Chocolate, Crystal, Roast Barley
Hops (32 IBU) - Magnum, Cascade

Wow! This was one of my favourite beers of all time. Dark sweet milk chocolate. Lots of flavour. This was absolutely incredible. Would love to be able to have this on a more regular basis.

Beautiful design, chocolate color, deep coffee aroma, Good foam, perfect body and chocolate, smoked taste, yet light enough to drink. Amazing beer!

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

Bren_Beer (18) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 12, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Tap @ Brew Dock. Chocolate and coffee - two of the greatest things on earth join forces in this super stout. I hear they will soon be bottling it too, which is great news too. Highly recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Edit 25/8/13 now available in 500ml bottles. 4.5% abv. Same great taste. Carbonation a little on the flat side.

beerfest5 (1147) - 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.

Tap @ The Black Sheep, Dublin. Pours black with light brown head. Aromas, as well as tastes, of milk chocolate, coffee, licorice and soy. Although sweet, there is a nice and well balanced bitterness. A great beer.
