This milk stout is chock full of roasty malts, milk sugar, hopped with hand fullís of perle plundered from the unsuspecting and aged on a chest full of Zamorana coffee beans.

TET (2257) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Almost black beer with a very big, clouding and light brown head. Temptating appearance. Aroma has strong coffee and roastiness, salt liquirice, some pine forest and sweetness of chocolate. Taste has strong coffee, lactose, roastiness, and some salt liquirice, hint of chocolate. Medium bodied, smooth and pleasant palate. Huge amount of flavours in these abv. Tasteful beer with the strong coffee but thatís mixed nicely into the other rich flavours. Great beer.
