Moment Of ClarityMoment Of Clarity
Notes: Moment of Clarity is an American Milk Stout carefully brewed and conditioned with coffee, chocolate, and dark amber maple syrup. It pours beautifully in the glass with a rich, mousse-like head and dense complexion. It exhibits strong maple and chocolate aromas on the nose and recalls chocolate covered maple cream candies in the flavor. Though dense and flavor filled, it still maintains a certain fluffiness that makes it easy and pleasant to drink a big glass of. It is a wonderful and decadent treat that, for us, evokes a yearning for relaxed Sunday mornings with a pile of chocolate chip pancakes.

In general I’m not a fan of milk stouts but I do enjoy having this moment of clarity.

Capped off a week on the cape with a pick up from tree house on the way back. The selections at sandwich are limited, so I ordered a 4-pack.

It pours marvelously and has a thickly dark tabacco black. Aroma brings coffee and chocolate tones. The taste follows but for me the prune overwhelms.

This is my first milk stout, so unfortunately im comparing this to memories of barrel aged stouts.

Pours dark black. Aroma is complex mix of chocolate, maple syrup, coffee and roasted malt. Taste is equally complex and tasty - follows the aroma with added vanilla and caramel. Full mouthfeel. Incredible stout.

L -- The usual thick, inky black appearance for the TH pastry stouts. Two fingers of deep tan head produced with moderately aerated pour. Some retention and lacing
S -- Chocolate syrup, maple, coffee ice cream, roast, liege waffle
T -- The maple takes center stage here, but not in an overbearing way. Good amount of rich fudgy chocolate, coffee, and some dark fruit character
F -- Big mouthfeel, medium- carb. Sweet but not cloying

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Tree House Willi Becher glass; canned 11/20/20, code WHERE WILL YOU FIND YOURS/
A: Pours a very dark brown, almost black, color with a two finger, foamy/fluffy, light brown head, half a finger retention and mostly parameniscal at first turning into rings of haunting lacing.
S: Aromas of fresh baked bread, honey maple, milk chocolate, and mocha predominate.
T: Sweet with flavors of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, and maple predominating. Bitterness is present as in that found in dark chocolate
M: Full bodied with moderate effervescence. Rich without necessarily being creamy.
O: Look, smell, taste, and feel all at or above a par with the best milk stouts. Enjoyed it throughout consumption. Really wish I had gifted the other one I had.

A: Pours a near pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Roasted malt, maple syrup, coffee, dark chocolate, and cocoa all stick out. Some caramel and vanilla in there as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a mix of roasted malt, maple syrup, and milk chocolate. Picks up the coffee and some dark chocolate. Caramel also present. Finishes with lingering roast and maple syrup

M: Full bodied with low-moderate carbonation

O: A great stout that hits heavy with the maple. Coffee and chocolate also very prevalent. Makes for a nice sipper even with the modest 7.7%. Worth checking out
