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!

16 oz can, with "Drink by" dating of 06-05-13 ( I'm a few months late apparently on this one)

Pours very dark brown, fluffy and lasting dark tan head that leaves a nice looking ring of low sheeting and scatteredt bits of lace.

I get a bunch of milk chocolate on the nose.

More milk chocolate, with some light coffee notes as well.

On the thin side, but that adds to drinkability of this flavorful and nicely crafted stout. Bring on some grilled meat and/or chocolate desserts.

Tasty and worth a try.

Last of the beers I brought home from Kansas...

A: Beautiful dark chocolate, can't see through the glass. Caramel head dissipates quickly but leaves a nice caramel ring around the glass and stirs up a thin head when agitated. BEAUTIFUL

S: Oatmeal, chocolate, small vanilla bean, Fennel

M: Way too carbonated for me, drinks like soda and reminds me of a redbull, too bubbly, takes away from the taste of the beer and really ruins it for me. Light to medium bodied as well, again just ruins this beer.

T: Oatmeal, small amount of bitter, molasses, dark dark chocolate

O: I'm very disappointed in this beer, and it all is from the mouthfeel. It drinks like a soda, just way too carbonated and light, I wouldn't get this again unless it was on a nitro tap
