BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Northgate Brewing
Minnesota, United States | website

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our take on a traditional English Sweet Stout. Sparse hopping and the addition of lactose creates a wonderful sweetness and body to the beer which pairs perfectly with the roasted malt and coffee notes. Once perscribed as a nutritional supplement - this is one of the brewer's favorite styles of beers.

Nitrous tap pint. After patiently waiting for the traditional dense frothy head to set I was eager based on the appearance. The feel was good but the flavor was far from imaginative, leaving me disappointed.

On nitro. By far the least favorite sweet/milk stout I have ever had. The chocolate tastes chalky and the lactose is well over done. It tastes like I am drinking chemicals. A definite drain pour.
