Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 6th February 2019, and with a best before date of 6th August 2019. Poured into a Spiegelau Stout glass.
Appearance: Dark brown to black in colour with a big three finger cream to tanned head that had decent retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Roasty, chocolate, vanilla, apple peel, minerals.
Taste: Light roast, chocolate, chocolate milk, light vanilla with an interesting mix of apple, mineral and herbal finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: A little different to most Milk Stouts I’ve tried with an interesting apple peel, mineral and herbal flavour coming through. I’m glad I tried it.
