12 oz bottle poured into a MKE tulip.
4.5% ABV,

A - The moderate pour pushed a light tan head through short-lived cascading. The clear dark amber-brown brew that's basically black in the glass is topped by disappearing foam that leaves no trace of it's existence.

S - Sweet lactose is evident and immediately backed by a smooth and gentle roasted malt character with touches of caramel drizzled throughout. Cocoa and a drop of vanilla both add a pinch of complexity.

T - Firm roasted malts finally budge, giving way to hints of coffee and molasses before being overtaken by lactose sweetness and a drizzle of milk chocolate on the finish.

M - Medium in body, Polish Moon has the flavor but leans towards a lighter feel as the carbonation dances along your tongue. It finishes dry and bitter from roasted malts but nicely balanced between the sweetness and bitterness.

O - Polish Moon has light malt complexity throughout but the roasted malt wins out in the end, almost forsaking the milk stout sweetness for roasted bitterness that feels an awful lot like a robust porter. If it's a sessionable dark beer you're looking for, look no further than Polish Moon; it's under 5% and packs a whole lot of flavor!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours the darkest, possible brown…limited khaki colored head…(4/5)

Smell: Chocolate, malt, some coffee and the tinniest bit of dark fruits…tons of chocolate though, very nice… (3.5/5)

Taste: Lots going on here…toasted malts and dark fruits beginning then blending with soft bitterness, coffee, mocha and some cream flavor…very nice…(4.5/5)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a bunch of carbonation…very nice…some chocolate milkshake flavor…it is a bit watery…(3.5/5)

Overall: This is a very drinkable beer…let it sit out a bit from the fridge for the best flavor…the chocolate smell is outstanding and ultra inviting…chocolate aroma, dark fruits and toasted malts make a great combination here…though there isn’t as deep a chocolate flavor as the aroma advertises…a twinge of bitterness in the deep background, but it very minimal…flavor and carbonation are excellent, this is definitely one of my favorite milk stouts to date…this is a delicious malty brew…(4/5)

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

As a sorta-Polish guy, I'm really interested in the origin of this beer's name. Regardless thereof, this stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, light coffee, and a hint of sweet cocoa. The taste brings in more of the same, with the cocoa appearing more as a bit of dark chocolate powder. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, though a touch thin for my particular tastes, this still stands as one of the best offerings MKE has yet put out, a tasty, sessionable milk stout. Good times.

Pours dark, almost black, with a 1.5 finger foamy tan head. Reduces slowly, leaves decent lacing and a bubbly film on top.

Smell is milk chocolate, some roast malts, a little coffee. Pretty standard, and pretty tame. Nothing special.

Taste is milk chocolate, a light tanginess that's pretty off-putting, maybe a little bit of roast? Very one dimensional, not very good.

Mouthfeel is okay. A little thin, but not bad.

Very average milk stout. Not really worth seeking out.
