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!

Enjoyed at Riva Chicago in the can.

s)=Milky roast chocolate and malt not much hop.
t) As with smell but more ample, and more char, milk, malt.
f) Too thin for stout. Want more generosity.

Served on tap. Pour is a cola colored liquid with a finger of rich, mocha colored head. Aromas of chocolate and double-double coffee. Flavors follows the nose, with cocoa and cream taking more of the stage than the roast coffee notes. Very easy and smooth.

Had this on tap at the Regal Beagle in Godfrey, IL. Black in color with a thin tan head. Smooth and creamy sweet stout with plenty of chocolate. A great tasting stout that goes down easy at 5%. I could drink a few of these. Hope I start seeing it on tap more often.

Pours a dark brown with a finger of quickly receding tan head that left a slight ring around the edge. Smells of toasted grains, coffee, milk chocolate, a little nuttiness. Tastes about the same, a bit more of the milk chocolate than the coffee and toasted grains. Medium carbonation and no alcohol heat (5% ABV so wasn't expecting any).

Drink before 7/28/17 on the can

A: Pours dark brown with a very tall and light brown head. Good head retention but very little lacing.

S: Toasted/burnt bread with hints of dark chocolate. Tiniest touch of vanilla.

T: Huh, interesting. Sweet chocolate and vanilla up front. Light coffee backing it up, especially in the middle. Toasted bread in the finish with more lingering creamy chocolate in the aftertaste.

M: Somewhat light bodied, very smooth and creamy.

O: Packs a lot of complexity and sweetness in a 5% stout. Great creaminess, great chocolate and a nice substantial malt presence to boot. Can't go wrong. Almost a session stout if there were such a thing.

12 oz can, drink by 06/01/17, into a pint glass shows a deep dark muddy-brown, but clear, body and briefly floating a 1/2in tan colored head.

Aroma is weak, but cocoa, and some roasty malt is in there.

Taste is goo-ood. Both the cocoa and roast malt are joined by milk chocolate, pumpernickel, and a bitter roast coffee at the end.

The creaminess is extreme, and appreciated. Medium feel leans heavy and clears the pallette completely without drying.
Overall a great example of the style.

Picked up randomly at a bottle shop in Jackson, MS. Very basic appearance and nose with big roasted and chocolate notes but little else.

Big chocolate and coffee tones drip all over this very drinkable stout. Smooth and creamy as advertised. Fresh and tasty and very easy to quaff for a stout. Nice effort.
