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”.

Deep black color with a small but firm tan head. Aroma of semisweet chocolate and dark coffee malt. Flavor is creamy dark coffee finishing to an earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with a light tingle of carbonation and a lingering earthy finish. Delicious and satisfying.

Dark black body, not much head, some lacing. Warm bready aroma, some funk. Taste is sweet with some roasted malts and a watery finish. Palate is on the soft side.

[Bottle] Nearly black pour with a nice cap of dense beige head. Nose of lactose, charred malts and dark chocolate. Chocolate, mild coffee, malted milk, molasses and a general roast character in the taste. Thinner than average. OK.

RRistow12 (389) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black with thick khacki head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, lactose and a little skunkiness. Taste is pretty thin for a stout. Some sweet lactose flavor with mild coffee and cocoa flavors. Mild bitterness. Overall an average to below average sweet stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weitz15 (383) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Dark brown pour. Aroma is full of Rich, roasted malts. Flavor is a healthy mix of coffee, malts, faint chocolate and very faint hop undertones.

That1Guy (2032) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2014
12 bottle pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some corn I’m afraid. Very light-bodied. Light roast flavor, some sweetness like shortbread. Just eh.

A Sweet Stout that isn’t very smooth. It has a sharpness to the carbonation that forces me to downgrade just a little.

felsenpils (123) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a good off-white foam. I, however, did not like this one. The coffee/cocoa flavors are very overpowering and it is not easy to drink. The finish is unpleasantly dry. Others at the bar who tried this agreed with me. Just another over-the-top micro brew whose color promises a lot, but whose flavor leaves a lot to be desired.

AWISLguy (1650) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from local restaurant. Pours black with a creamy tan head leaving some lacing. Aroma has some roast, cocoa and lactose. Taste is sweet cocoa, some lactose and some roast. Not too sweet, as the bitterness fights in. Medium bodied with no real alcohol presence. Finishes sweet and bitter, with lactose. Decent offering, not badly done for style. 13.4

dekester1 (338) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Poured a very dark brow - nearly black - with a light beige head that quickly faded to lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts. Taste was also of roasted malts with hints of smokiness and coffee and a mild to moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, a very drinkable and smooth milk stout.
