COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not your typical "Jelly of the Month Club" beer. Dark roasted malt and bittersweet cocoa and coffee flavor and aroma burst from this pitch black milk stout. The full body and sweetness are derived from the addition of lactose (aka milk sugar) which is not fermentable by beer yeast. A healthy dose of English Kent Goldings hops provides a counterpoint to this ale’s rich and complex maltiness.

Fantastic wild stout with a lot of flavor. Not sweet and weak loge some milk stouts but more bold in flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pitch black, with a persistent head. Not much aroma. Sweet tasting. Faintly fizzy. Pretty nice.

Thanks willisread for the can! Poured into a snifter showing pitch black with sparse latte colored foam. The nose shows molasses and light licorice. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Lightly sweet with a light coffee tartness and flavors of licorice and light hops with mild hoppy bitterness.

Dark beige fluffy head stayed well on a jet black still body. Bitter malt roasted aroma. Medium to full body. Smooth on the palate - tingly on the back. Feels good. Bitter sweet malt, demerara, plum, roasted, dark berries, milk, chocolate & a tangy fruity finish.

6/01/2017 (16 fl oz can enjoyed somewhat warm): Aroma smells alcoholic and dry like bourbon whiskey along with some cocoa, charred wood, and a hint of black walnut; pretty much black color when poured, pillowy head of tan-colored foam; flavor is milky chocolate up front along with some chocolate candy, , plenty of nice warming alcohol coming through in the mouth and nose, a little sweet and malty at times, but then earthy and bitter, really nice smoky finish of burned wood, licorice, and vanilla; medium-full body, smooth, really nice mouthfeel; Wow, this is a very complex and milk stout (not a favorite style of mine), wonderfully crafted and worth the full price even though I only paid $2/can, really fun can design as well!

A 1 pint can with no clear canned on or best before date. Poured into a Spiegelau Stout glass. It pours a very dark brown, near black colour with a three finger mocha coloured head after an aggressive pour, that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, molasses, coffee and chocolate with a light smokiness. Tastes like sweet milk coffee that was on the watery side, with a hint of caramel, chocolate, vanilla and maybe smoke. Light to medium bodied with low carbonation. Overall it’s easy to drink as it’s quite light, but it was also on the watery side. Some stronger coffee or even smokiness would have improved this Stout.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2017 Can. Very dark with ample tan head. Smells a little chocolatey bit also woody, bready, and citric and maybe mapley. Flavor is a little chocolatey and a little earthy. Creamy.

Strykzone (7356) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Pint can. Dark brown with a big two toned tan head. More carbonation rises than is typical. A nice milk chocolate aroma also has some malt balls. It is quite sweet with earth galore. A little roastiness and some toast, too. Feel is syrupy. Very easy drinking.

@Basunen 17-5-12: En mycket len och krämig stout med toner av choklad och kaffe. Ingen käftsmäll men mycket mjuk och trevlig
