This pitch black milk stout is teaming with rich roasted malt and coffee flavors. The addition of milk sugar tames these intense flavors with a silky sweetness. A very easy drinking, full bodied beer. This beer gets its name from the Milwaukee landmark, the Allen-Bradley clock tower, who locals fondly call Polish Moon.

Dark brown coloured body with a muddy brown and ruby tint near the bottom , all with a super thick, frothy, seven centimetre tall brown head. Aroma of yeast, milk, cream, raisins, nuts, earth and some light pit fruits. Medium-bodied; Chewy creamy and milky flavour with a lot of lactic notes, some nuts and earth, but a lot of roasted malt flavour showing at first and a good deal of sweetness from peanuts and hazelnuts also around the corner. Aftertaste shows some deeper malty and earthy finishes and a rich sweetness from oatmeal and some lighter cherry and fruit flavours. Overall, a rather full flavoured stout or porter with a light finish and a very creamy flavour throughout - nice and well-rounded. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Binnys in Chicago (South Loop), Illinois on 21-August-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 30-May-2014.

Bottle picked up in northern Wisconsin - taste was good, a very respectable roasty coffee/chocolate flavor with enough smoothness to claim milk stout status, but lost major points for the ridiculous amount of head. Seriously, I could have filled 6 glasses with one bottle, so voluminous was the foam. Even drinking straight from the bottle the foam filled my mouth making it difficult to enjoy the flavor.

A decent mill stout. Strong beer with a smokey finish. Pours very dark like Guinness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perhaps I should just stop drinking milk stouts. They look good and smell but have a disappointingly thin and watery consistency and flushed out taste with just a wisp of flavor. Polish Moon follows that formula plus is burdened with a cute name (which almost always means a lousy product).

Dark brown. Smells like deep roasted coffee and milk. A nice roasted flavor with milk sweetness, silky and thick. Easy drinking and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Roasty burnt toast aroma. Pours very dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Very smooth. A little bit of coffee slight bitterness. Toasty. Not bad.

A very appealing pour with a feint aroma. First taste that hits you is water, then it has an aftertaste of coffee with cream and a hint of chocolate. The lack of flavor is disappointing

Draft at trader Todd's. bubbly black pour with bubbly brown head. Sweet taste with chocolate backbone. A little lite after what I drank before but exceeded my expectations.

Pours black with minimal tan head. Notes of coffee and toasted malt dominate. A bit of lactic is present as well. The taste is a bit sweet though not as lactic as i was expecting. Bitter finish and overall decent. I have had much better milk stouts but still decent.
