Brewer Description: (from can) Wiggity Woooo! We’re putting in a swimming pool! And if there’s enough left over, we’re gonna fly you all down here to help us dedicate it. This is not your typical ‘Jelly of the Month Club’ milk stout. This stout is silky, smooth, and sweet. And it’s worth the $35K, but you can only have a little ‘cause the rest is ours!

Intro: A 1 pint can with no clear canned on or best before date. Poured into a Spiegelau Stout glass.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black colour with a three finger mocha coloured head after an aggressive pour, that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, molasses, coffee and chocolate with a light smokiness.
Taste: Sweet milk coffee that was on the watery side, with a hint of caramel, chocolate, vanilla and maybe smoke.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: It’s easy to drink as it’s quite light, but it was also on the watery side. Some stronger coffee or even smokiness would have improved this Stout.
