COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first small-batch canned release of 2017 is hot off the press and looks an absolute picture thanks to the amazing custom can artwork from the incredible guys at The Red Dress. We wanted to produce something of true decadence, so have packed into the recipe everything that we could think of to raise the body and make a smooth, truly redolent deep stout.

The four key additions exaggerate the mouthfeel and work with the blend of malts, oats and wheat to leave you with a beer that is best enjoyed on those dark, early-spring evenings when the weather is yet to break and the cold still seeps in around the door jambs. The result? In a word, opulence. The aromas start with cocoa and vanilla but it is the flavour that really holds the key to our latest small-batch release. Chocolate milkshake, roasty espresso and mellow vanilla blend into one in a smooth, full-bodied beer that is rich, deep and rewarding.

Pours a pitch black color with medium white head. Aroma is sweet, with vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon, toffee and black sugar. Good body from the iats. Taste is very sweet, lots of vanilla, milky chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee and lactose. Sweet ending, with a low but perisstent bitter aftertaste.

BrewDog Semi - Skimmed Occultist Aromă dulce și cu mult malț ușor prăjit, ceva malț ars, note de cafea, cacao/ciocolată cu lapte, ceva lemn ars și fructe negre de pădure. Gust moderat și plăcut dulce (dulceață de fructe de pădure, prune și ceva caramelă), puțină cacao și vanilie, pe fundal ceva arsură (malț ars, ceva lemn ars) și ceva amăreală. Bună și plăcută, o bere ”sweet stout” ceva mai sofisticată și bine făcută.

Can courtesy of and shared with Tderoeck. BB 11/03/2018. Brune foncée, col beige. Arôme est malté, caramel avec un petit rétro de lactose et de fines effluves de café. Le tout est léger. Palais est malté, finement grillé et torréfié avec un apport café plaisant. Le côté lactose est marqué avec un rétro fin de chocolat en poudre. Douceur de vanille + encore un léger ajout de lactose qui pour moi devient un peu trop dominant. Fini tire sur un léger collant aux lèvres avec un effet butterscotch et lactose qui revient à la charge.

weark (859) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Canette achet�e chez Amstein - De couleur noir avec une magnifique mousse fauve cr�meuse qui tient longtemps - Au nez des ar�mes de dessert au chocolat, chocolat, cacao, vanille, caf�, lactose, un nez gourmand qui annonce une bi�re lourde et onctueuse - En bouche c'est onctueux, tr�s chocolat, le caf� se fait plus discret mais la vanille reste bien pr�sente le lactose aussi le malt est difficile � cerner, l'alcool est pr�sent tr�s sucr�e presque �coeurante � la fin - Corp ample, amertume legere/moyenne, carbonation l�g�re, onctueuse et soyeuse, final chocolat vanille lactose - C'est impressionnant de douceur et de sucre, presque trop au final m�me si la bi�re est superbe c'est �coeurant

However, the British government banned use of the term milk stout in 1946 to stem such unproven claims and to prevent any chance of the sweet beer finding its way into children’s hands. By that time there was not actually any milk in milk stouts as brewers had discovered how to produce and use lactose — or milk sugar — in the beer. One of the few survivors of that era is Mackeson’s XXX Stout, which has been produced since 1907. Mackeson’s XXX Stout was originally called Mackeson’s Milk Stout before regulations were enacted. A milk churn still adorns the label.
