650ml bottle. Pours a deep black with a light brown head. Considering its a stout it’s a rather light bodied beer. The milkeness comes through fantastically. Enjoyable to have in place of a bailey’s.

On tap in the Churchill Cigar Lounge, 7th May 2016. Really liked this, black with a creamy head. Smooth and chocolatey with a rich body feel, vanilla and coffee esters vie with the chocolate flavours within the taste to give the beer extra interest and complexity.

On Tap @ Bay Area Craft Beer Festival, Martinez, California (16.04.2016)
Czekoladowy, Mleczny Stout 6,9% alk. Czarny, prawie bez piany jedynie z centymetrową otoczką. Kawa i mleczne cukierki w smaku i aromacie. Poza tym laktoa i mleczna czekolada z orzechami. Aromat średnio intensywny. Smak natomiast wyrazisty i przyjemny. Gęsty kremowy Stout, umiarkowanie słodki. Dobra robota.

Pours a half finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt and milk. The taste is dark chocolate and coffee bitterness, milk and malt sweet, really great. The texture is smooth and soft. Wonderful.

This grew on me, and much better once it hit room temperature. Smooth, creamy, good drinkability. Black with retained head. Good for a milk stout.

Dogbrick (11021) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Sample at GABF 09/26/2015, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Brownish-black color with a medium thick foamy khaki head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing. Aroma of chocolate, malt and coffee. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, cocoa and mild coffee. The finish is roasty with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Very good stout. Chocolate milk is the correct deScription. Smooth with a pleasant flavour. Not much pep but very drinkable. Definitely worth a revisit.
