Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” kind of moments when you try it!

What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!

Poured from 12oz can into glass. On bottom of can is stamped 'DRINK BY 03/03/18'.
Dark brown colored body, with mahogany highlights when presented to light. Two finger tan head settles to scattered islands and ring. No lacing.
Aroma of dark roasted malts, along with sweet lactose and dark chocolate.
Taste is a smooth procession of chocolate covered dark malts. Just a smidge of sweetness. No bitterness and very little after taste.
A thin mouth feel, with okay carbonation. Very easy to drink.
This is a good candidate for a session stout. Likely very good for the appropriate food pairings; this beer will not overpower rich and savory food dishes.

Not the sweetest milk stout but the flavors of unsweetened chocolate and lactic sugars are very well balanced. Not sure if I would have it again since I can think of other milk stouts that rocked my world.

A stout that is easier to drink, strong stout mouthful front that fades fast into a crisper smoother finish.

Taste Rating in Words: You start the night in a suit and you end the night in shorts and a t-shirt, it's a journey.

12 oz. can purchased in August, 2017 at Happy Harry's in Fargo. Date says good until 12/17/17. Poured into Aslin 2nd anniversary glass.

L: Very big light tan head, like 4F. Eventually reduces to small ring, no lacing. Beer is a very dark brown.

S: Roasted malts, lactose, unsweetened chocolate

T: Mostly roasted malts and lactose. Doesn't really seem to come together and is pretty watery for a stout.

F: Light side of medium body, a little bit of carbonation. Construction lacking. Balance fine.

O: There are just too many better stouts of this variety out there. Drink one of them instead.
