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.

brokensail (16401) - 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 theres 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. Theres 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: Ive never heard of this brewery before and I sort of wish that was still the case. Just not good at all.

deyholla (11219) - 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.

GT (10000) - 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.

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.. didnt feel great, but it was tasty beyond that.

Flight on tap at the brewpub (Milwaukee, WI). Pours a rich blackish hue, not opaque, with some ruby notes dancing on the edges and in the body. A frothy tannish head sits atop and stays as a firm thick ring, laces well. Aromas are dashes of cocoa and roasty malts, gentle roasted barley and coffee, touches of sweetness, caramel, biscuits. Toast, firm coffee roast comes on as it warms more. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, offering, coating the palate with a firm roasted ashy barley up front, toast and roast, coffee. Middle gets a bit more creamy, some toffee, gentle cocoa on the sweeter side of things. Nice and inviting, finish gets a touch dry and roasty, yet some firm malt body still sticks, making it a firm feel. Its not the best representation of the style, but its inviting and drinkable.
