COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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”.

Bottle. Very dark brown, tan edge head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet, coffee grounds and cocoa. Nice.

brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 30, 2010
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a mild off-white head forming on top. S: Very astringent and acidic roasted malts start this one off and there’s a mild sweetness to it as well. Definitely not a pleasant or enjoyable nose. T: A little better as I take the first sip. Some chocolate, milk sugar, and again the acidic/acrid roast. There’s a bit of a spoiled milk quality to this beer, which is not really my thing. M: The body is medium, maybe a bit light, with a medium level of carbonation. D: I’ve never heard of this brewery before and I sort of wish that was still the case. Just not good at all.

On tap at the brewery. This is this brewery’s strength, a really nice milk stout with a nice sweetness but also a mellowing bitterness.

deyholla (12037) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2012
On tap at the Milwaukee Brewing Co. Pours near black with a creamy brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet dark grains with some sweet creamy chocolate and a hint of roast. Flavor begins with sweet chocolate and sweet dark bread with a hint of backing roast and coffee to cut the sweetness.

Bottle. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and hay aroma. Black with small head. Sweet milk chocolate, coffee, roasted barley malt, and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Very pleasant.

BVery (11241) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle at the Casanova Beer Cave festival. Very dark pour with a soapy head. Palate is medium - maybe a touch thin. Roasty and sweet. Nice brew.

GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
355mL at DC Elite. Poured a clear, deepish ruby with an okay tan head. Aroma is not too intense but you can pick up some lemon, Christmas spices (nutmeg, cinnamon), light smoke, and something that reminds me of fresh diaper (???). Tate is really just nothing, maybe some slight lemon tea, cold coffee. Palate is thin, powdery, watery.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2011
On tap at Milwaukee Ale House. Poured deep brown with a well-retained, sticky, creamy, dark beige head. The aroma picked up sweet milk chocolates and coffee with moderate roast to ‘em.. lovely 2nd wave of dark sugars.. great stuff! The flavor held serve.. sweet, roasty coffee throughout, paired with fresh earthy bitterness.. roast and husky malt sourness stuck on the long, warm, tasty finish.. everything worked well together. Medium-bodied and quite dry on the palate.. well-balanced with a smooth flow through the mouth.. I need more of this.

Bottled. Poured deeper brown with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet lactose notes and milk chocolate, giving a sweet cake-like impression.. nothing not to like here. The flavor found sweet milk chocolate and lesser dulce de leche.. a touch of cocoa and creme brulee on the edges.. sweet finish with a lot of tasty residual sugar. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. a bit scratchy at times.. didn’t feel great, but it was tasty beyond that.
