Style: English Sweet / Milk Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A bittersweet, creamy, coffee-laced stout
First Release: August 2014
From imperial stouts to IPAs, we’ve discovered the tantalizingly roasty lift that comes from adding coffee beans to just about any kind of beer. This English-style milk stout, originally a limited-edition offering at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station, proved the perfect foil for beans from San Diego-based Ryan Bros Coffee. The bitterness of the coffee is balanced out brilliantly by the milk sugar we used to add a touch of sweetness and creaminess to the stout’s smooth, easy-drinking texture. Cheers to the coalescence of two highly artisanal (and delectable) mediums.

De XXXII. Embotellada 26/12/2015. En copa Teku. Jugando a Avernum 6. La lactosa no la encuentro, el cafe agradable pero demasiado suave, y la carbonatacion algo alta. Le falta intensidad en sabores. Quizas fresca mejore bastante

Pours from the bottle an opaque dark brown with a tan head.
The aroma is roast coffee and chocolate with a bit of sweetness.
The taste is coffee, chocolate, sweetness, nice bit of bitter.
Mouthfeel is medium and creamy.

Bottled on date is there. Wow! this does taste like a cup of coffee with a splash of milk added to it. This would be a great pairing with some breakfast food like bacon, eggs, & toast. Stone Brewing you have done it again.Cheers! A-

Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a nice brown medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral coffee notes with some light sweet notes. Taste is a mix of floral coffee notes with light sweet notes, some lactose with some light black chocolate notes. Body is full for style with good carbonation. Superb example of the style.

This pours a coffee black with a luscious cap of cocoa colored cream. There's a wonderful aroma with a pleasing coffee roast character. Fantastic sipper, with a creamy coffee stout character. All around excellent beer.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. bottled 9/15/16, so about 11 months old.

Black as black body allowing no light to enter in. Good creamy thick head to begin with, dissipating to a solid covering with a ring, before disappearing completely about halfway through. Head is coffee with a dash of cream coloring. decent lacing at first.

roasted coffee aroma, however, it appears a little on the stale coffee side.

Medium roasted coffee on taste, nothing else.

Below medium on the mouth, stale roasted coffee on the finish.

Overall, while not a bad drink, I'd guess consuming it closer to bottling date might yield a better drink, even though bottle says can cellar up to 12 months.
