Notes: Homemade is a milk stout made with chocolate fudge, walnuts, and a hint of maple syrup. It pours a silky black in the glass with a dense, marshmallow-like head. We taste and smell milk chocolate, chocolate covered walnuts, and maple walnut truffles. Yum! It calls to mind a confection you might find at a back road general store. A decadent, smile inducing concoction, indeed - just in time for Halloween!

Pours opaque, black in color with one third inch head. Taste is milk chocolate, big maple and light walnut. Heavy bodied, low carbonation, very sweet and roasty. Makes for another nice sweet stout. In the middle of their recent stouts. Would get again.

Bought at the brewery last Friday 11/1/19. Canned 10/30. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip.

a: Opaque black with an inch olus brown head which receded to thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Milk chocolate and hazelnuts

t; Follows the nose with a moderate hop bite over which lingers on the sweet finish. High ABV not evident.

m: medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A very tasty stout, seemingly a bit light weight in feel but tremendous in flavor. The nut additives dominate any smoky/coffee notes stouts are known for. And like "Candy Shop," their chocolate milk stout, exceptionally expensive at $8.50/16oz.

Thanks to rudzud
Pours a medium sized almost black colored thicker frothy rich semi dense head with medium to lower retention, a fair soapy lacing, light legs and pitch black beer

Nose some dark chocolate with plenty of hazelnuts and a little walnuts, fair maple, big toasted nuts, some toasty brown malts, a little vanilla icing, mild lactose and marshmallow, faint fudge in the background

Taste rich creamy milk stout, lactose and fudgey cocoa, with some toasted nuts, hard to specifically say walnuts, maybe even hazelnuts again, but a fair maple again, rich maple and toasted brown malts, fair sweetness, a bit of vanilla as well, a little warming alcohol turning slightly tingly, some chocolate fudge, medium to lighter bitterness some from dark malts and a little spicy hop, sticky finish

Mouth is fuller bod, a bit creamy, medium carb, a little warming alcohol

Overall OK but not great, decent nutty notes but not a ton, nice maple at least, bitterness is OK, base malt is OK,

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black with a thin mocha head that fades to leave light lacing and thin wisps.

S - Big aromas of maple syrup and chocolate candy. Good maple cream candy, light roast and nuttiness, alcohol hidden wonderfully.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice slightly sweet maple notes. Big coffee ice cream flavour, flashes of nuttiness. Good nice sweeter lactose. Almost takes like a coffee ice cream sundae.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, alcohol hidden very well.

O - Overall this was a solid enough milk stout, good chocolate and walnuts. Good sweetness.
