BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

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.

The nitro can doesn't work. Simply flat and dead. Decent chocolate flavor but the lingering off-sweet lactose aftertaste and the mouthfeel are really bad.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black colour. Smells predominately of dark-roasted malts, with notes of dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Tastes much like it smells, burnt/dark-roasted malts, quite bitter, slight dark chocolate notes and coffee at the end; medium-bodied.

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.
