Cocoa Mint Milk StoutCocoa Mint Milk Stout
Notes: The utilization of Cacao Nibs, Sidecar Coffee Roasters Espresso and organically grown mint leaf make this Milk Stout a true original. Milk Stouts begin more sweet than the standard American Stout and this one is no exception. A full bodied, creamy beer carrying with it wave upon wave of joyous flavor.

Malts: Pale Ale, American Chocolate, Pale Chocolate, C60, Roasted Barley, Oats, White Wheat
Yeast: American Ale
Other: Lactose, Espresso (Sidecar Coffee Roasters), Ecuadorian Cacao Nibs, Mint (locally harvested)

Poured cold from 12-ounce can into a petite snifter. Beautiful appearance. Deep, buffed blackish brown colored body (like a buckeye :)), with a thick light tan head (like a buckeye :)). The aroma offered a lot of promise: cocoa and mint forward as expected, with notes of char and espresso bean. These are present on the palate as well, although somewhat subdued. This was rather light in body, not overly sweet, with a mostly dry and slightly watery finish. Alcohol presence becomes more assertive as it approaches room temperature, which coincidentally (or maybe not) is when the flavors begin to really pop. I was expecting something a little heavier and sweeter from a milk stout. That said, it's still an excellent beer and a very satisfying sipper.

Aroma is roasted malts and mint/winter green. The flavor is coffee, roasted malts, fruit, mint throughout and a dryish/acidic/slightly sweet/woody finish.
