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 ales rich and complex maltiness.

pint can. Brune fonce, col caf au lait assez crmeux. Arme au bouquet assez enivrant niveau des malts, pas mal de grill, caf, chocolat et bon biscuit. Palais est malt gnreux avec une belle couche de chocolat offrant une petite amertume. Caf avec bon effet torrfi et une petite pointe pice du caf. Amertume est fine sur un houblonn discret mais qui donne une belle balance. Fini sur un superbe caractre moka, espresso et biscuit.

nearbeer (5229) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2017
Pint can no date stamp. Deep brown-black body has a moonscape disc of foam on top. Aroma is milk chocolate, raisin, espresso and a bit of blackberry. Front tastes of dark toffee, berries and coffee with cream. Later turns veer towards charred wood, chocolate malted milk balls and some prickly green herb. Mildly smoky chocolate mint lingers in the long finish. Medium-plus body has smooth low-medium carbonation and a very drinkable balance. Fifth brew Ive had from this brewery and four of them have been quite impressive.

DavidWoodruff (534) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 5, 2017
Black with brown head. Aroma of Mocha and malt. Sweet, malty with some dying affect from the dark roasted malts. Surprisingly short malty finish. Could use some more aggressive roasted grain character. Nice overall.

Holy chocolate this is good. This might be the smoothest milk stout Ive ever had. Absolute insane chocolate aroma, coffee and vanilla. It smells like a hershey bar dipped in coffee. Upon drinking this beast, one will notice its like liquid chocolate and its so smooooth. Silky is absolutely right with this one, I want to just geek out on it all day. Such a delicious beer, these guys can do no wrong. Highly recommended.
