COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pitch black milk stout is teaming with rich roasted malt and coffee flavors. The addition of milk sugar tames these intense flavors with a silky sweetness. A very easy drinking, full bodied beer. This beer gets its’ name from the Milwaukee landmark, the Allen-Bradley clock tower, who locals fondly call “Polish Moon”.

On tap at Milwaukee Ale House. Poured deep brown with a well-retained, sticky, creamy, dark beige head. The aroma picked up sweet milk chocolates and coffee with moderate roast to ‘em.. lovely 2nd wave of dark sugars.. great stuff! The flavor held serve.. sweet, roasty coffee throughout, paired with fresh earthy bitterness.. roast and husky malt sourness stuck on the long, warm, tasty finish.. everything worked well together. Medium-bodied and quite dry on the palate.. well-balanced with a smooth flow through the mouth.. I need more of this.

Bottled. Poured deeper brown with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet lactose notes and milk chocolate, giving a sweet cake-like impression.. nothing not to like here. The flavor found sweet milk chocolate and lesser dulce de leche.. a touch of cocoa and creme brulee on the edges.. sweet finish with a lot of tasty residual sugar. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. a bit scratchy at times.. didn’t feel great, but it was tasty beyond that.

nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2011
12oz bottle. Opaque black with a steady beige head. Sweet chocolate aroma, mellow and subdued. On the thicker side of medium-bodied. Some chocolaty pungence, which increases as it warms. Roasty, sort of over the top sugary sweet. Mild hops don’t really do much to balance it out. Would go over quite well in the Caribbean. Solid.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Very dark brown with a large brown head that sticks for awhile and leaves splotches of lace. Aroma of heavy grains, lactose, chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is of heavy lactose with lightly roasted malt and mild chocolate. Body is thin and creamy with a somewhat chalky finish.

cbfobes (2271) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a dark brown with a nice thick tan head and nice lacing through out the glass, honestly, this beer looks lovely, the aroma is of roasty with touches of chocolate and vanilla on the nose, the flavor is a tad thin but has a strong finish with chocolate, one of the better offerings from Milwaukee Brewing.

madvike (2666) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle - Pours deep black with a big foamy tan head. Smell is medium roast malt, light smoke, and subtle chocolate. Smells a bit watery and diluted. Taste has metallic notes with some smoky roasted malt, hazelnut, and lactose, along with a weird hint of sorghum. Fairly watery mouthfeel, though well-carbonated.

GT2 (8270) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
355mL at DC Elite. Poured a clear, deepish ruby with an okay tan head. Aroma is not too intense but you can pick up some lemon, Christmas spices (nutmeg, cinnamon), light smoke, and something that reminds me of fresh diaper (???). Tate is really just nothing, maybe some slight lemon tea, cold coffee. Palate is thin, powdery, watery.

brokensail (10640) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 30, 2010
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a mild off-white head forming on top. S: Very astringent and acidic roasted malts start this one off and there’s a mild sweetness to it as well. Definitely not a pleasant or enjoyable nose. T: A little better as I take the first sip. Some chocolate, milk sugar, and again the acidic/acrid roast. There’s a bit of a spoiled milk quality to this beer, which is not really my thing. M: The body is medium, maybe a bit light, with a medium level of carbonation. D: I’ve never heard of this brewery before and I sort of wish that was still the case. Just not good at all.
