Don’t let dry coffee-embittered black chocolate opening, charcoal-stained lactose thickness, midnight black hue and clustered Brussels lace of English-styled porter scare away lighter tastes. Subsequent caramel-burnt maple-molasses sweetness underlays chewy chocolate delight, evoking creamy milkshake or Black Forest cake dessert-like affability. Toasted barley-hops inform endless mocha finish. Seasoned milk stout fanatics as well as lagerheads will be pleased. Brewery defunct: 2007.
