Stone Brewing Co. "Coffee Milk Stout" Ale Brewed w/ Coffee Beans, California (12oz).
From the brewery that typically focuses on hop-fueled selections comes this light, accessible, easy-drinking milk stout, and it’s absolutely delightful. Brewed with roasted coffee beans, it boasts upfront aromas and flavors of black coffee, but with additional complementary notes of chicory, cocoa powder, milk chocolate and roasted malt. The medium-length finish veers toward a more bittersweet chocolate tone, but only with a subtly astringent edge. Thanks to the approachable alcohol and relatively clean yet decadent finish, this is one flavorful brew that you can actually enjoy a few of.
"There’s no shortage of talented people at Stone, and each makes their presence known in their own unique way. Brian Gallagher, a brewer who learned the art of fermentation in the UK, used the beer you now hold, a take on a traditional English milk stout, as his vehicle for personal expression. Originally brewed as a limited edition offering at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station, this coffee-laced milk stout quickly became a favorite among Gallagher’s peers. Made bittersweet and creamy while remaining smooth and easy-drinking thanks to the addition of milk sugar, it’s clear in one sip why this is a brew we needed to share with fans everywhere. IBUS: 40"
