Milk Chocolate Stout
Decadent and complex while remaining wholly refreshing and drinkable. This Stout is brewed with Milk Sugars and Chocolate to give rich flavours and body that goes down smooth.
Taste of Chocolate and smooth mouthfeel, due to the additions of Dark Chocolate and Milk Sugars (Lactose) respectively. While dark, rich and decadent this beer finds balance and subtlety in its lightness and drinkability. Great for matching with sweeter dishes and intense desserts.
Speciality Malts - Oats, Munich, Chocolate, Crystal, Roast Barley
Hops (32 IBU) - Magnum, Cascade

23/IX/17 - on tap @ Borefts Bierfestival 2017 (Bodegraven) - BB: n/a (2017-1707) Thanks to ratebeerians and friends for sharing today's beers!

Clear dark brown beer, small creamy beige head, unstable, dissipates quickly. Aroma: very roasted, banana, bit yeasty, dusty, cacao powder. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, pretty roasted, soft bitterness, some caramel, coffee notes. Aftertaste: roasted, bitter, pretty hoppy finish. How is this a "sweet " stout? Tasted rather bitter to me...

wilde_joost59 (382) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2017
Uit een flesje. Mooi zwart van kleur, bruin schuim. Goed aroma, in de smaak zowel zoet als wat bittere chocolade. Heerlijk bier en niet te zwaar in abv. Prima voor "guur weer".

ZodiacM (1380) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2017
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Aardige smaakvolle milk stout, zoet-bitter met rooktonen. Mondgevoel is wat dun, de koolzuur maakt hem fris. Aardig!

RichardGretton (4883) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle. Black with a strong browny coloured head. The aroma is bitter and roasted with a smooth oaty and chocolate maltiness about it. The flavour is bitter with certainly a milky maltiness and oats at the finish. Overall a nice very bitter milk stout.

BlackHaddock (8090) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2017
33cl bottle: BB 27th Mar 2018. Obtained from Beers of Europe. Poured into a Westmalle chalice at home on 18th Oct 2017. Wispy tanned head turned into a collar very swiftly, then disappeared completely, dark brown body and fairly well carbonated. Smooth malty aroma and taste, some chocolate notes within both the nose and flavour, mild bitterness at the end of each sip, decent brew without setting my senses on fire or wishing to be 'Buried at Sea'.
