poured into pint glass.

app-dark almost black, thin head that disappears quickly.
smell-gives off faint roasted coffee tones
taste- roasted malt up front starts off coffee and finishes chocolate. not too robust of a stout, easy drinking for a milk stout
mouthfeel- thin for a stout, which I dont find objectionable but some might
overall- i am not a huge stout fan, but i liked this perhaps because it is thinner and less robust than the style should be, if you are kinda in the mood for a dark beer that won't fill you up i guess this would fit the bill.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My beer is the same as the bottle pictured, but is called Polish Moon Milk Stout by Milwaukee Brewing Company, rather than Milwaukee Ale House. Both are from Milwaukee, and both are listed at 4.50% abv. I'm not sure if the pictures are reversed or what, but clearly something is a little off. Reviewing here, since it has the correct bottle pictured. My third beer from this brewery, expectations are low based on my previous experience.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a dark mahogany / chestnut color. Opaque in the glass with a slight ruby tint when held to the light. One finger of creamy mocha fluff disappears quickly.

S - Smell is of cold coffee bean roast, a hint of lactose, and peanut and hazelnut nuttiness.

T - Taste follows the nose: bitter cold coffee bean roast, light chocolate flavor, & some nuttiness. Not really packing a lot of intensity, but it's a lot better than what I was expecting. Still, it tastes a bit watered down and more like a porter to me than a legitimate milk stout.

M - Feel is a bit watery and thin for a milk stout, so it isn't exactly suited to style. Carbonation is good, but a tad high.

Overall, this has definitely been the best thing I've sampled from this brewery so far. Still not a top notch example of the style, but it is drinkable. It reminds me more of what a light-bodied porter would taste like, rather than a milk stout, but I'm still pleasantly surprised with this offering.

Milwaukee Brewing Polish Moon Milk Stout ---3.5/5

4.58/5  rDev +19.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours dark and cloudy.
Head: Tight, forthy light brown head, with long retention,
Smell: Chocolate, malt, with some hint of coffee,
Taste: Chocolate front, malty, with strong coffee after taste. Very well done. Outstanding, really.
Mouthfeel: Thin, light bodied and well carbonation

Overall: Wonderful stout that I'd drink next to, or even over Dublin's pride any day. It's a little thin, but that does not harm, probably makes it a bit easier to convert to the urinals, and moves more of it across the bar in the brewery. No harm or foul there.

ABV could be 3.50% and I'd not complain about it.
