We are excited to announce a new addition to our milk stout family: Nervous Energy! Featuring maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla, Nervous Energy aspires to emulate the character of classic french toast. It pours pitch black in the glass, and gives off strong aromas of maple, cinnamon, coffee, and whipped cream. The flavor follows suit, with all of the flavors in balance and nothing overwhelming the palate. It is pleasant and nostalgic, arousing memories of cool weekend mornings comforted by rich, carbohydrate heavy breakfasts. A beer fit for the season. We think you will enjoy this beer tremendously, and sincerely aspire for it to contribute to your autumn celebrations in a delicious way.

16oz can.

Pours opaque dark brown with an inch-plus head of tan. Dark fudge, espresso, faint cinnamon, and maple in the nose. Full bodied with a soft, oily mouthfeel. Fudgy and rich on the palate. Brownie batter, bakers chocolate, a hint of cinnamon. Finishes sweet and chocolaty.
The maple, vanilla, cinnamon are almost non-existent.

16oz. can into a Side Project snifter.

Pours dense and dark with a slowly cascading dark mocha head. Spotty lace with thin legs. Nose is milk chocolate, lactose, and vanilla. Aromatic but rather straighforward. Beer opens semi-sweet chocolate, iced mocha, vanilla, and roasted malt. Middle is coca cola, molasses, and a touch more chocolate. Finishes sticky with an aftertaste of cocoa powder. The usual sweetness is present here but its balanced nicely by a unique vanilla bean bitterness. Body is medium with low carbonation. Slick and soft on the palate and goes down sticky with a lingering aftertaste. Super easy drinking.

This is better than a lot of other TH milk stouts recently. Great balance.

Pours deep, dark brown. Aroma is mix of roasted malt, maple syrup, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is a wonderful sweetness matching nose. Full of malts, chocolate, vanilla & coffee. Medium mouthfeel. Incredible stout.

Pours a very dark brown to black color with a finger of tan head. The nose is as advertised - coffee, cinnamon and maple syrup - but nothing really jumps out of the melange. The flavor profile follows the nose but there is also some subtle chocolatey notes that serve as a nice accompaniment.

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

S: Roasted malt, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, dark chocolate, and coffee

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a mix of roasted malt, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Picks up the bourbon vanilla beans, dark chocolate, and coffee. A good balance between sweet and roasty. Finishes with lingering roast, maple syrup, and cinnamon

M: Medium-full bodied with low carbonation. Smooth, but not sticky

O: A very good breakfast-styled milk stout that nails the cinnamon French toast aspect. Makes for a great sipper. Definitely worth checking out
