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”.

A rich, dark, bitter beer full of flavor. I enjoyed this on a condo deck of the Milwaukee River. A classic.

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.

Had this beer at the 4th Annual Casanova Beer Cave Festival. Awesome chocolate coffee scent, outburst of coffee flavors.

Pours ebony black with a thick frothy light brown head. Aroma is malt and coffee. Nice viscosity and creaminess. Taste is dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a slight yeasty sourdough bread taste at the finish. No hops evident. Very smooth and flavorful. Stands up well with chili and crackers.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Draft at Milwaukee Brewing. Pours a deep brown/black with a tan head. Nose is moderately sweet, caramel and roast. Light coffee notes and cocoa as well. On tasting, light sweetness accentuating the body, medium full. More of the cocoa, faint lactose and roasty malts. drying finish overall. Clean and really quite nice.

On tap at the brewery. This is this brewery’s strength, a really nice milk stout with a nice sweetness but also a mellowing bitterness.

Bottle poured a dark brown color with a nice one finger tan head that retained well. Aroma has roasted malt, lactic sweetness, light coffee, and chocolate. Mouth feel is on the light side of medium and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor brings in a bit more coffee, lactic sweetness, lightly roasted malt, milk chocolate, and the finish brings them all together nicely. They have nailed the style here and the balance of roast, malt, and sweetness is at the right level to let the lactic side do it’s thing.
